1. A Whole New Ballgame Blog Tour Day 2 - Excerpt & Insights! →

    Today at Booked In Chico there’s an excerpt from A WHOLE NEW BALLGAME, and some author insights along with it. This is the chapter that takes place the night of Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS, which will mean something if you’re a baseball fan - but if you’re not, you won’t miss out on a thing, I promise!

It could be a federal holiday called Actually Day and the president would give a Mansplanation Proclamation and we’d all get paid 85 cents on the dollar as a special treat.

  6. It’s par for the course for female sports journalists, as any of them can tell you: If you’re on air, you can count on people telling you you’re ugly or fat or stupid, or you slept your way to your job, or nice-report-on-Johnny-Manziel-now-show-us-your-boobs, and you can count on this every time you do anything. Beadle, an avid Twitterer, knew this as well as anyone, which meant she knew responses like this, and this, and this, and dozens more like them, were coming. It’s one thing to know that you’re in the right, and that those who are attacking you are scared, angry little cretins. It’s quite another to actually have to read all those people saying horrific things to you. Even when you’re on the side of the just, every one of them has to take a little piece out of you.

    SECOND TAKE

  7. Maybe I would give a shit about this performative nonsense on ESPN today if they didn’t keep on staff sexists and homophobes no matter what they say. Maybe I would give a shit about this performative nonsense if ESPN took it seriously and instead of using it for ratings or to put their personality’s face on TV, they gave First Take over to a bunch of female journalists to talk about the damage this kind of rhetoric does, why the NFL’s “punishment” of Ray Rice is terrible, AND why ESPN should stop letting men who know nothing about DV talk about it. Maybe I would give a shit about this performative nonsense if for one second I believed this was done at all for victims of DV and not for ESPN or Stephen A. Smith.

    I don’t.

    It wasn’t.
