New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie is getting mocked for a clip where he takes some time to name all his children (the clip isn’t as bad as the description makes it sound– he’s slow, but he doesn’t struggle all that badly). Cromartie claims that HBO manipulated the footage to make him look bad. Of…

SteelyKid has clearly inherited her father’s fondness for basketball. Unfortunately, she doesn’t quite understand how to play, yet. She does know that involves throwing a ball up in the air and jumping, though: She’ll get the rest of it eventually.

Thursday Baby Blogging 042210

Most weeks, I try to find some natural-looking way to get SteelyKid and Appa in the picture together. Sometimes, though, there’s just no way to get it done, and we have to resort to Kate holding Appa near her: She’s hugging her jacket because it got kind of cold this afternoon, but she’s in a…

Maryland-Duke

It’s been an absurdly good hoops week at Chateau Steelypips– Syracuse won a big one to take over the (admittedly meaningless) #1 spot in the polls, and now Maryland beat Duke in a tough game to move into a tie for the top spot in the (admittedly down) ACC. If both Duke (home to UNC)…

Syracuse-Villanova

They pushed the curtain back a few feet at the Carrier Dome, opening up a few more seats so they could set a new record for largest on-campus crowd to see a college basketball game for Syracuse playing Villanova for a share of the Big East regular season title. This is the sort of atmosphere…

Syracuse vs. Notre Dame

I watched most of Syracuse’s win over Notre Dame last night. Two basketball games in the same week! Luxury! The thing that really jumps out at me about this team as opposed to last year’s is that they’re calm. Last year Eric Devendorf in particular, and to a lesser extent Johnny Flynn, tended to panic…

Syracuse- West Virginia

It’s been a while since I did a basketball game recap here, mostly because it’s been a while since I saw a whole game. Thanks to the DVR, I saw the whole Syracuse-West Virginia game today, in which Syracuse narrowly escaped Morgantown with a win. They had a ten point lead with two and a…

Fitness Requires Challenge

Depending on what you read at ScienceBlogs other than this blog, you may have noticed a New Year’s fitness theme. Blame Ethan. So, now, everybody’s posting workout tips and the like. Which means, of course, that I’m obliged to post my Fitness Secrets here for free, when I could be charging money for them to…

… walk into a bar. No, wait, that’s not what I want… In the interval before this morning’s Mike and Mike show became the Tiger Woods Scandal Hour, they were talking about Tim Donaghy and his allegations about the NBA, which basically amount to the league being just a few steps up from the WWE.…

November Basketball: SU-Cal, UNC-OSU

Kate and I went to the two games of the “semifinals” of the 2K Sports Classic Supporting Coaches vs. Cancer, Your Name Here for a Prince pre-season “tournament” last night (the scare quotes are because the four teams playing last night were guaranteed to be playing last night, regardless of what happened in the earlier…
