sports-chick-a-rod-hookerUnicorns do exist. They come in the form of girls that love sports. We’ve got a resident unicorn on the Bacon Sports team and you can ask her whatever you’d like. Really, anything. That’s why we created “Ask a Sports Chick”.

Meet our unicorn, Taina. She is from Chicago and is currently battling a life-long sports addiction. She is a lover of all food and whiskey, and hater of the NFL offseason.

You can submit your “Ask a Sports Chick” questions here or you can tweet them to @TainaMolina. We’ll be doing this as a weekly piece every Thursday so we definitely want to hear what you’ve got.

Also, don’t forget to check out Rob and Taina’s weekly Fresh n Stunna Podcast. They dish sports absurdity with a random goofiness unlike anyone else.

Q: Do you think/care about the new A-Rod book that claims he had a “revolving door of hookers?” I don’t, but I wondered from a woman perspective if this kind of thing changes your opinion about A-Rod?  

A: Well, I didn’t really have an opinion on A-Rod before. But I think he negatively impacted the game of baseball, and that sucks. To me, that makes him a shitty person. But I don’t care enough about him personally to care about his drama.

Now, onto this magical revolving door of hookers. You know what I think? Good for him. This was post-divorce (as I understand it). He is a single, good looking dude, he is beyond wealthy, not married, living in a great city, and a celebrity in the game of baseball. Who can blame him? Although, I in no way think he had to pay women to sleep with him (there are plenty of girls out there who would gladly do that for free because that is their thing), but maybe he wanted to keep it business-ish?

Regardless, this doesn’t really impact my opinion on him. I think his track record in relation to the sport is way worse than how he chooses to spend his excessive paychecks and free time.

 

Q: Liking sports is not on my “girlfriend criteria,” if you will. But with that said, how can I gauge a girl’s actual interest when she asks me about sports? I don’t want to grill her and come off as abrasive and elitist to see if she is actually a fan or being polite, but I also don’t want her stabbing her eyes out with a fork because she’s so tired of my sports banter. What advice do you have for me?  

A: When/if she asks you, do the opposite of me when a guy ask me about sports, don’t start with a deep breath and then go on a fifteen minute rant about why your teams are pissing you off and why LeBron will never be Jordan or why Irsay is the worst owner in the NFL.

Don’t do that.

Just keep it simple. Say who you cheer for and why and see how she reacts.

I think it’s fair to ask her if she watches sports, or maybe ask if she is a fan of a specific team (for example,  if you live in Atlanta, ask if she is a Falcons fan. See what I did there?). And if she responds how I would respond, please don’t walk away thinking she is crazy. Passionate and crazy are two different things. On the other hand, if she doesn’t know how to respond or seems nervous to disappoint you with a “no, sorry,” don’t be mean. Not all girls are unicorns. And since it’s not on your list anyway, just change the topic.

Either way, you’ll be able to gauge her answer and respond accordingly.

You’re welcome.

 

Q: F Marry Kill- New York Yankees, Baltimore Ravens, Detroit Red Wings. Go.

A: F- Detroit Red Wings (What else can they offer me? Nothing)

Marry- New York Yankees (not because I am anything close to ever being a Yankees fan, because I’m not, but they are the face of the league and that means power and money and the ability to do whatever you want. And that’d be cool as shit to do in a marriage that means nothing anyway)

Kill- Baltimore Ravens (obviously)

 

Q: Okay, we know you love JJ Watt, but who are your top 3 girl crushes? The girls you want to be if you could.  

A: My top three girl crushes are Ciara, Charlize Theron, and Victoria Beckham. In that order. Ciara is just absolutely phenomenal and extremely underrated. Charlize Theron is perfect. And I know people think Victoria Beckham is “too skinny” and whatever, but I’m obsessed with her and her gorgeous family.

 

Q: Do you consider a man any less attractive if he orders mild wing sauce instead of hot? And with the same thought process in mind- do you take note of the drink he orders? I’m talking a normal looking dude here, not George Clooney (let’s be real- he can order fried zucchini with a cosmo and I’d still want to be his best friend).  

A: I don’t care as much about the hot sauce as much as the drink. Even though you should never order mild, I won’t judge you too extremely over it. But please, whatever you do, for the love of God, don’t order a vodka cranberry or a cosmo. I’d rather you drink water. Not only are they disgusting, but you look like an idiot. I was drinking stronger drinks on lunch break in high school.

 

Q: Channeling my inner Michael Scott here: “have you had a sexual relationship with a coworker? If not, do you day dream about them?” Explain.

A: NO OMG NEVER LIKE HOW COULD YOU THINK THAT?!?! AHAHA OMG NO WAY LIKE NEVER HAHA
