Unicorns 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: Who is your favorite old school hip-hop rapper or group?
A: Biggie Smalls and A Tribe Called Quest. Two of the best to ever do it.
Q: Please provide us with a Fantasy Football update.
A: Oh yea, this is over with. I made the playoffs in two leagues. But the third team I stopped caring about after I forgot to switch my starting QB because I was too hungover and that single-handedly ruined my season (Matt Schaub started over Brady, which should never happen, ever). I’m not playing for money as we’ve discussed before, so at this point I’m fairly checked out. Sorry, guys.
Q: If I go home with a girl I meet at the bar, am I allowed to dip out after business is taken care of? Or do I have a moral obligation to stay until the morning?
A: Moral obligations are out the window if you’re going home with a random because at that point it’s a game of needs and you were chosen for just that. If it’s someone who you’ve had a consistent fling with then I think staying over is kind of expected (possibly not?), but otherwise there is no reason a dude or a girl should be calling someone out on dipping out early. What are you going to do after? Play board games and watch a movie? Ten bucks you don’t even remember each others names.
Q: Josh McCown has been great and there is no denying that. But I’m still a firm believer that Jay Cutler should be the starter again when he is healthy. What do you think? Should they bench Jay until they really need him?
A: Obviously McCown has been great. Monday night’s win was flawless. But he’s not your starting QB and he isn’t who you are paying $10 million to. With that being said, I have always had Cutler’s back. His contract is up, and if the Bears want to keep him around for the long run then I think he needs to start. But if he can’t start against Cleveland this week then I’m not sure you want him starting and getting back into the swing of things at an away game in Philly that could potentially make or break your playoff hopes. At this point it’s all strategy. I don’t think it comes down to when “they really need him,” rather when he will be ready to compete at 150%. Being healthy and healed doesn’t always mean you’re ready to go. And if you’re going to fight for a playoff spot at this point, then you need to ready to go. 150%.
Q: I met a girl last weekend who was awesome, but she was a Yankees fan from St. Louis for no reason at all. Literally knew nothing about the team expect that Derek Jeter played for them and that Alex Rodriguez used steroids. Is it fair for me to judge her completely off of that? Because I am.
A: Listen, I completely get what you’re saying here, bud. But I think you need to take a few steps back. You literally just met this girl and you’re already thinking long-term. If you just casually see this girl, why does it matter what she doesn’t know about baseball? You can’t expect every chick you meet to be a walking MLB encyclopedia. If you don’t bring it up then it probably won’t even be a discussion. Also, if she isn’t a real fan, then the chances of you being able to persuade her to be a fan of your team is even better! Let’s stay positive.
Q: After this past weekend’s games in snow, how are you feeling about a potential snow-ridden Super Bowl? Are you worried it will play to one team’s strengths potentially? I personally cannot wait for it.
A: I love it and I think it’s way overdue. I understand some teams are used to certain climates, but if they can go play in the snow during the regular season at away games (not talking to you, Detroit), why shouldn’t they be able to do that in the Super Bowl? I don’t think it will play to one team’s strength as much as it will expose another team’s weakness. And honestly, how amazing was that Philly game?! People keep saying, “Well, Detroit would have won if it didn’t snow!” but… you’re from Detroit. Why should snow impact your game? Learn to play and adapt or else you’re wasting your time.
