Anna Undercover: High School Boys Rule!

They totally do. You would never have thought so, but in a strip club, younger men are typically a real challenge. It seems that 80% of men under 25 try *so* hard to teach me the same lessons over and over: They are quick to disrespect me, ... Continue reading

Anna Undercover: A Reckoning

So, I haven't posted in a little over a week. I have been writing madly, but I hate everything I've come up with, and I'm certain that it's because I'm trying too hard. On top of that, you guys have told me more than a few times ... Continue reading

Progressive inconsistency.

Well the battle on shoveling continues. “It is your civic duty to shovel the common sidewalk”!!! Interesting! I wrote a blog about snow and sidewalks at Well, I really do think sidewalks should be shoveled. But that is not the real issue. Just what is the right ... Continue reading

Now introducing the dumbest idea in sports

When I initially heard about the idea, I thought it was a joke. Surely, Don 'Moose' Lewis couldn't be serious when he released a statement — on Martin Luther King weekend, nonetheless — calling for the creation of an all-white basketball league based in Atlanta.

Recap: Morris, Collins top Baylor’s LaceOffense

Baylor played its game Wednesday night, there's no doubt about that. Junior guard LaceDarius Dunn heaved (and made) some "What's he thinking?" three-pointers. Senior guard Tweety Carter controlled the offense like a savvy veteran despite an ugly shooting line (5-for-13). The Bears, led by Dunn and sophomore ... Continue reading

Holy Polar Bears!

For a long time, I was under the impression that pre-game videos couldn't get much better than what the Kansas University men's basketball team had to offer. I mean, everything about the KU video is great. The music. The footage. The volume. It's so great, in fact, ... Continue reading
