Tweet The most exciting parts of last night’s Super Bowl for me were Joe Namath’s coin toss and Bruno Mars’s halftime show featuring the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The game interested me less than usual — I wasn’t even sure that was possible — and I was underwhelmed by a lot of the ads. Radio […]

Tweet I don’t normally watch the Super Bowl for the fashion (I watch it for the ads), so I was pleasantly surprised to see 70-year-old football legend Joe Namath defying the relatively warm New Jersey temperatures in a hooded fur coat. During halftime, brand-new Grammy winner Bruno Mars wore gold. Anthony Kiedis and Flea of […]

Tweet A week ago today, I was enjoying my annual Pimm’s Fest with my gorgeous London blogger friends. The fest started in 2008, when I met up with Sharon of Thrift My Style and the lovely lady behind the since-abandoned Times of Glory blog to shop Trudie Styler’s castoffs (why didn’t I buy more?! I’ve […]

Tweet Like more than 108 million other people, I was glued to the television on Sunday, watching the Beyonce concert. You know, the big performance that was preceded by football, and followed by quiet naptime and then more football. I agree with Beyonce that the show was “Gone With the Wind fabulous!“  I was thrilled […]

Tweet I’ve posted before about the reasons I still read newspapers on actual paper. For instance, in 2010, I wrote: “I enthusiastically use teh Interwebs to stay informed, but I’m highly aware of how easy it is to select only what you want to read. That’s why I read on paper too. The mere act […]

Tweet I normally have no interest in sports, but I enjoyed the Olympics so much that I’m sad to see it end. The swimming, diving, and gymnastics were my favorites, though I liked track and field too.  I preferred watching the women’s competitions. You can catch men playing sports on television every day but where […]

Tweet Swimmer Michael Phelps won his 20th medal at the London Olympics yesterday, but one could argue that his 19th, earned on Tuesday, was a bigger moment. That’s when he became the most decorated Olympian of all time, passing the previous record-holder, Soviet gymnast Larisa Latynina, who won 18 medals between 1956 and 1964. If […]

Tweet I’m not much of a sports fan, but there are a few athletes who impress me. One is basketball Hall-of-Famer Walt “Clyde” Frazier, who is one of my official style icons. Now I’ve added hockey great Wayne Gretzky to my list of people who give good advice. I was struck by one of his […]

Tweet Model Gisele Bündchen, wife of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, has been getting grief for her unsportsmanlike conduct after the Patriots lost the Super Bowl. Leaving Indianapolis’s Lucas Oil Stadium, she was trailed by cameras and a classy guy who yelled, “”Eli owns your husband!” — referring to Eli Manning, quarterback of the […]

Tweet I hear there’s some big sporting event today that involves jewelry, guys in tight pants … and  Madonna. Ha! I’ve always thought that football had homoerotic undertones. Clearly, everyone’s about to come out of the closet en masse, as I first anticipated in October. I’m going to celebrate this happy occasion by offering a […]
