A 5' 2" view of the Columbus sports world from AM 1230's web coordinator and sports nut, Megan Short
I was given a very unique opportunity to cover every central Ohio sporting event you can imagine for the WTVN sports department, under the direction of Larry Larson (aka Mr. High School Sports). Larry, besides being one of the nicest guys on the planet, was a staple in the Columbus sports media since... leather football helmets. I've seen the behind-the-scenes of the Buckeyes, Blue Jackets, Crew, Clippers, and too many other college and high school teams of every kind to name.
I am hooked on sports stories of all kind and plan on sharing the best of what I come across -- local and national, funny and serious. There will always be a healthy dose of silly pictures and videos that make me laugh, and links to pages that say smart sports stuff that I couldn't hope to explain on my own. And if you have something that you'd like to share with the class, that would be even better -- email stuff to me!!
And I'm on Twitter, if you're the tweeting type:

Foot Locker has put out a great commercial where all is right with the world (or at least the sports world)... including Brett Favre uttering the phrase, "A man's gotta know when to walk away."
It takes a true sports fan to understand every reference, but I guarantee you'll get a good laugh out of it:
Oh, and to help everyone fully enjoy seeing Craig Sager burn all those hideous suits, here is the interview from 2009 where Kevin Garnett tells Sager to do exactly that:
We pay for tickets to go to sporting events for the entertainment, right? Well, nobody said that entertainment can't come during timeouts or intermissions.
This dude's shining moment on the big video board at a Celtics game did NOT go to waste, that's for sure.
Columbus has its own version of this Fan Cam Ham; Dancing Kevin can be seen in all his shirtless painted glory at CBJ games. Here's a sample of his work:
