Mac’s Cincinnati Reds Throwback Uniform Series: 1935 Edition

Throughout the 2019 season, the Cincinnati Reds will be wearing a series of throwback uniforms to commemorate their 150th Anniversary and being the birthplace of professional baseball. Each weekend during a home series, the Reds will wear the uniforms from a different era to put their rich baseball history on display. Along with the Reds’ celebration, I will be reviewing and providing thoughts on each uniform throughout the season.

The weather forecast isn’t looking that great for tonight’s matchup against the Texas Rangers. In fact, the blah weather is fitting for the blah throwback uniforms.

I hate to say it, but I think we may have taken a step back in the uniforms this time around. Don’t get me wrong. Continue reading

Derek Dietrich Lived a Day in My Shoes. I Just Hope He Doesn’t Gain Weight and Start Blogging

Athletes, they’re just like us!

With a day off between interleague match-ups, Derek Dietrich took a break from running laps in the heads of Pittsburgh TV analysts and went on a tour of Cincinnati to prove that he’s a Cincinnati Red through and through. Continue reading

Stone Cold’s Music Playing During a Bruins Fan Brawl is the Greatest Thing I’ve Ever Seen

It was a wild scene in Boston tonight. The refs saved America from having to suffer through the Bruins being within a win of the Stanley Cup and the fans in Boston were not having any of it. Trash was being thrown onto the ice, people were losing their minds and tempers were flaring on Twitter.

None of that was as good as what happened in the nosebleeds of TD Garden. Continue reading

Pants Pooping Paul Pierce is Winning Over Blogger Hearts One Poop Story at a Time

For years (11 to be exact), I’ve been calling Paul Pierce a bitch for needing to be carried off the floor, put in a wheel chair and rolled back to the locker room just to return and finish the game.

As a man who has played three (3) seasons of beer league hockey, I just couldn’t let this slide. There’s an honor and a code you play by when you’re at the highest level (or Thursday night beer league) and until today, America assumed Pierce broke that code. Continue reading

Today I Learned: Drake’s Real Name is Aubrey [BONUS: Unofficial Famous Aubrey Power Rankings]

I know it’s always a little jarring when you learn an actor or rapper’s real name, but I can’t remember the last time one hit me as hard as this. How is Drake’s real name Aubrey? I know you can’t blame people for what their parents named them, but goddamn. Aubrey? That’s the furthest thing from a Canadian TV actor turned rapper’s name I’ve ever heard. Aubrey as a guy is hard to picture because all I can see is Aubrey Plaza.

Sure, Aubrey Huff had a decent career for the Giants, but I’ve never seen Drake hit a fastball. I’m guessing he can’t. Aubrey Huff could. Point Mr. Huff. Continue reading

Drake Leads Toronto Raptors to Game 1 Victory in NBA Finals

What an incredible game by Drake. You can say all you want about Pascal Siakam’s 32 points in his NBA Final debut (14 of them in the third quarter) or how the Warriors still don’t have Kevin Durant back from injury. None of that matters because we all know the truth. This Raptors team doesn’t win tonight, or even get to the finals for that matter, without Drake leading the way. Continue reading
