Men’s sports uniforms ranked

mens best sports uniformsLast week the website, Jezebel, had an article that was brought to my attention called Men’s sports uniforms ranked.

Perhaps the author wrote it best,  “The World Cup has presented us with lots of excuses to gaze upon Thighlights, but are soccer uniforms really the most awesome uniforms in the sporting world?”

Check out Dodai’s compilation of the best men’s sports uniforms here.

OUT at Fenway

Red Sox Pride NightGuess where I am tonight?  Pity this isn’t the 2013 Red Sox but I’m hopeful the Red Sox offense will show up tonight. If you are at Fenway, say hello. I’m in the section that gets up and dances at every possible opportunity; at least that is how it worked last year.

What is it about wrestling that seems to always make me do a double take? Apparently, I’m not alone because earlier this week Queerty posted a series of these eye-catching images that you can check out here.

Marathon Day: 118th Boston Marathon

Boston Marathon Boston Athletic AssociationMany who live in and near Boston are not working today, celebrating Patriot’s Day, which also happens to always coincide with the Boston Marathon.  This year Sergio and I are flying back from visiting my brother who moved to Southern California.

The Boston Marathon is one of my favorite holidays and sporting events in the city and I’d like to wish all the runners the best of luck and thank the city, it’s first responders and all the volunteers who I know will make this a safe and fun event.Boston Marathon Schedule

Marathon weekend

Boston MarathonIts marathon weekend in Boston and because of last year’s bombings it seems like the rest of the world will turn their eyes to Boston come Monday.  It feels strange not to be in the city this weekend which I would imagine is quickly filling to capacity.   Typically the Boston Marathon draws more than half a million spectators and more than 25,000 runners, but this year is anything but typical. This year the Boston Marathon has an estimated 36,000 runners, and I would assume even more spectators.

If you are in town this weekend be certain to check out the Boston Marathon Sports & Fitness Expo at the Hynes Auditorium (Friday 12-7 pm; Saturday 9am – 7pm; and Sunday 9am – 6pm. Nearly every athletic, fitness and nutrition firm you can imagine sets up booths to educate and sell their products. Vendors have special sales for the expo and there are usually some pretty cool freebies.
