2013 in Sport: The year in lip

I caught a little bit of the Liberty Bowl on the radio today and heard a first (for me): A female play-by-play announcer calling a college football game. The Google told me it's Beth Mowins. It took around 10 seconds to get used to the idea. Something about the way she punched words reminded me of Florida Gators announcing legend Mick Hubert.

Pam Ward has been doing play-play for ESPN for awhile now, since 2000.

To all SpoFites everywhere, my best wishes for a very happy new year. Those who are east of the bulge of Brasil or west of Kiribati have had their celebratory toasts, while the rest of us are waiting for the midnight hour. There will be championships for some, disappointment for many, but in all may the spirit of friendly competition prevail.

Ugh. I fucking hate Texas A&M.

I look forward to Manziel figuring out the hard way that RG3's problem wasn't the coaching.
