A Gridiron Goddess Administrative Note: WTF WORDPRESS?

May 31, 2008

Football Fiends-

I’ve about had it up to HERE with wordpress’ lack of support. As you can see my banner image is still not showing up.  IN FACT, I changed the entire look of this site and my dashboard reflects this, yet I come to the site and it’s the same old broken header b.s. of the past month or so.

I hope to get it fixed this week.

I am still working on my book proposal AND looking for a job, but I COULD NOT LET TODAY PASS WITHOUT MENTIONING:

THREE MONTHS FROM TODAY COLLEGE FOOTBALL KICKS OFF!!!!!!!!

More specifically, Rey Maualuga and my USC Trojans meet the Wahoos of UVA in Charlotesville.

I predict USC wins by at least 2 touchdowns.

A Gridiron Goddess Administrative Post: Happy Memorial Day

May 23, 2008

Hello Football Fiends!!! I hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!!

I am going to take a short break from blogging. I am trying to finish writing my book proposal and need to focus and limit my distractions. Since we’re in the DOLDRUMS of football season anyway, this seems like a good time to take a break.

I will check in if something big happens (and I am not so absorbed in the proposal writing that I am oblivious to all else), otherwise I will be back in about two weeks (if not sooner!)

If you’d like to guest post during my break, EMAIL ME!!

Congratulations to the Bishop Gorman Gaels Baseball team

May 17, 2008

My high school Alma Mater Bishop Gorman just won the Nevada State High School Baseball Championship!

Congratulations Gaels!!!

It was a Las Vegas showdown when the Gorman Gaels battled the Green Valley High School Gators for the title.

The baseball team joins BGHS’s football team in State Championships won this academic year.

Now you all know how I got to be such a sports fan! It started at BGHS, was nutured at USC and grew to an all out frenzy as the years wore on any my alma maters continued to dominate Nevada, the Pac-10, the NCAA.

Ah, it is good to be a Gael and a Trojan these days!

O.J. did it again…

May 11, 2008

Well looks like OJ done gone and fouled things up again.

Only this time his last name isn’t Simpson, it’s Mayo.

Allegations surfaced this weekend against freshman basketball phenom O.J. Mayo. He has been accused of accepting cash and gifts before and during his time at USC, which is in direct violation of NCAA laws.

If true, and all reports look like it is true, this is going to hit USC’s Athletic Director Mike Garrett and his NCAA Compliance Committee hard. With the as yet not proven (or not enforced, depending on your viewpoint) Reggie Bush allegations hanging out there murking up USC’s reputation, this violation will likely carry a sentence that will affect USC Basketball for seasons to come.

And you know what really fricking sucks about that? O.J. Mayo gets off basically scot free since he has declared for the NBA draft this year.

Happy Mother’s Day!
