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:
I was up at the Browns/Lions preseason game last night (it was a blast!) and had the, um, privilege of witnessing a guy streak across the field. I was too busy pointing and laughing to pull out my phone and get video; fortunately, someone else captured the magic. Watch his buddies get him psyched up, then the inevitable form tackle at the end. Enjoy!
Jimmy Fallon and the Roots took a crack at creating a new walk-up song for Derek Jeter last night when the Yankees captain visited the show. Pretty awesome, see for yourself:
Ahh, live sports television broadcasts -- I love it!
Congrats to the Reds' Homer Bailey for pitching the second no-hitter of his career last night. With only one walk allowed, he was this close to a perfect game... and it was that one walk that caused Homer to commit a different kind of no-no in the post-game interview: drop an F-bomb on live tv. Here is the video of that interview, as well as the clip of the final out and celebration.
And, because this is America, you can order your F'n Walked A Guy T-shirt!
