Sometimes I feel like you're all supportive and open... except when it comes to "Daisy." *meow meow meow*
body building
No matter your ethnicity, your natural shade or your body chemistry, all competitors are required to tan their bodies to the same shade of reddish brown.

exercise
Turns out there's a scientific explanation for why so many of us don't enjoy breaking a sweat.
fashion
Dudes apparently think girls in sports gear are the hottest thing since those tights with built-in garters. I put this to the test over the weekend. Results were mixed.
athletics
If some gym teacher had pulled me aside then and told me “Look, I know you have it in you to kick this ball, maybe not this time, but soon. I just know you are strong and tough, so of course you can do it.”

politics
I wasn’t aware that Glenn Beck was the current head of the "Who’s a real man?” club, but evidently he is, and he used the power vested in him to strip President Obama of his man privileges.

The NFL Bag Policy is a total joke, but since it's not going anywhere, here are bags that follow the guidelines and aren't totally heinous. Plus, the magic scarf I can't live without.

The first sentence? "Sports is not the first place that you imagine seeing girls unless they are cheering on the sidelines."

I always felt lame for being lazy and unathletic. Now I'm just grateful I got to avoid college sports coaches like this apparent nutjob Beckie Francis.
brain injury
Most people have an enormous attachment to their face. But in the entertainment business, it often defines everything about your career.
cheer perfection
Would a show called "Little League Lads" get the same hand wringing cries about how horrible the fast-talking coach is on the "scared little boys"?
