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:
Turns out I am not the only one trying to read the lips of players and coaches when I'm watching games. I just keep watching this video over and over again, and I'm still laughing my ass off.
And now, a couple sports notes from Ohio teams:
|Hockey is back! After a lightning-fast training camp period, real games begin Saturday for the Jackets in Nashville at 8:00. The CBJ's first home game is Monday night -- they host the good-for-nothing Red Wings. Welcome back, hockey! To see the complete schedule, click here.|
For the first time ever, the Browns have sold the naming rights to their stadium. Browns fans will be welcomed to "FirstEnergy Stadium, Home of the Cleveland Browns."
New Browns owner Jimmy Haslam announced this and a few other planned changes in his press conference yesterday. Read all about it HERE from Plain Dealer reporter and all-around good guy, Tom Reed.
