Did you know that San Antonio has a sports team that is the best in the Western conference and 2nd best in the entire league? No, I’m not talking about the Spurs. If you aren’t following me on Twitter (shameless self promotion @jessicaredfield) or are a season ticket holder for the team, it’s a huge possibility that you were unaware of this. Well it’s time to get educated, because this year, the San Antonio Rampage are the real deal.
For those of you that are completely clueless as to who the San Antonio Rampage are, they are our AHL hockey team, and they are on fire this year. With 20 wins and only 7 loses the Rampage are the best in the West and the second best in the second best hockey league in the world, and they have a huge shot at bringing the Calder Cup home to San Antonio. So why doesn’t San Antonio care about the Rampage? I asked the question on Twitter the other day and some of the answers were legitimate reasons.
“Unfamiliarity and an overall unwillingness to give it a chance. Too much "us vs. them" mentality.”- @rampagenate
“We grew up not playing hockey. Guys here get together to play bball or football.”- @TexasAg98
“I just think it's a north/south thing, not "like" or "dislike" for the sport” - @_OGBC_
I think all of those reasons are valid. It’s the ignorant responses like “hockey isn’t a real sport because it can end in a tie” (well, hockey can’t end in a tie, but hey, genius, football can, so is football a real sport?) and “the only reason to go to games are for $1 beer and the fights” and the usual “hockey is dumb” that really drive me crazy. I asked a couple of people that gave me what I considered to be ignorant responses if they have ever even gone to a hockey game. Would you like to guess what they answered? Oh, that’s right they said no. So how about before you make a comment about the subject, you actually go to a game and experience it. I can honestly say that every person I have taken to a hockey game has enjoyed the game.
Not only are the Rampage looking great on the ice, they are also active in our community. Friday December 17th, they will be doing their 6th Annual Teddy Bear Toss. Fans are being asked to bring a new unwrapped teddy bear and when Rampage score their first goal, everyone will toss the bears onto the ice. All the bears will be donated to the U.S. Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots program. January 28th, the ice will be dyed pink and pink themed jerseys will be auctioned off and a portion of the proceeds will go to San Antonio affiliate of Susan G. Komen. They also do a lot of fun things with child cancer patients at the Christus Santa Rosa Hospital. And of course the guys also sported mustaches during November to raise money and awareness for cancers that affect men.
These guys are playing their butts off and are looking really good. So come on San Antonio, how about we get off our butts and we go out to the AT&T Center and support the Rampage. I promise you, it will be fun.

For those of you that are shocked (you shouldn’t be) by how God awful the Cowboys are playing this season I thought I would give you a little pick me up and show you another example of “how the mighty have fallen”.
Guys, I’m sorry, but watching this will probably make you stare at the screen with your mouth wide open in shock, so I’m giving you fair warning…..
She was in her prime back then. Now let's look at her now.....
One person plays a factor in making both fall from their pedestal....
World's Greatest Redheads
Friday 10-15-2010 6:50pm CT
At least once a day I hear Mike mention a redhead, so today's blog is going to be dedicated to the World's Greatest Redheads as requested by Jim Bob.
I asked people on twitter to give me their opinions. I got Matt Bonner, Howdy Doody, Ann Margaret, Kari Byro, Danny Bonaduce, Isla Fisher, and Jessica Rabbit just to name a few.
I think being a girl ginger has way more perks than being a guy ginger, well except the constant question of "does the carpet match the drapes" and being told that we have no souls, that stuff get's old real quick . But the following redheads are by far the hottest in the land. The list really can go on for a while, but I'm just going to narrow it down to 3, and I think that these 3 will satisfy most needs.
First we have Christina Hendricks from Mad Men, a very sexy curve redhead.
Next Julianne Moore, a little bit older, but still very sexy.
But the one that takes the cake is definitely Scarlett Johansson. By far the hottest redhead ever.
While being a girl redhead has it's ups and downs, being a guy ginger is a different story, unless you are Ron Howard or Matt Bonner or one of these two gentleman, being a guy ginge must suck.
See my favorite male redhead is Olympic snowboarding gold medalist, "The Flying Tomato", Shawn White. How can you not love that guy? He is the ultimate badass! Taylor said earlier "there's a ton of chicks with his orange pubes stuck in their teeth", you honestly can't argue that he's not legit.
Even though he is the ultimate badass, none will ever compare to this man. There really are no words needed for this man, the picture alone does him justice.
Chuck Norris. Winner of the World's Greatest Redhead Award. End of story.

Before you start reading this blog, grab a beer and take a chug everytime you read a mention to penis.
When I was told I was going to have an intern blog, I honestly didn't think my first blog was going to be about a penis. I guess I should've known that working for STSA I should expect the unexpected. So let's get down to it. Penis. Specifically Brett Favre's member, or "The Old Dong Slinger".
Brett Favre has been playing in the NFL for nearly 20 years and so far has kept under the radar when it comes to scandals, so what was he thinking? First of all he is married. Keep your johnson between you and wife, if you can't to do that, I have three words of advice for you: DON'T GET MARRIED. Being labeled a cheater is way worse than being labeled a man slut. For example, Derek Jeter, dated tons of hot girls, but hasn't gotten bad press because of it. Another thing to keep in mind, and this isn't advice just for athletes, this is advice that everyone can take. Don't take nude pictures. I for one, was more surprised by the fact that Favre even knew how to use his phone to take and send pictures than the fact there's a picture of his pecker. But with the advancement of technology it's easy for pictures to get blasted all over the world in a matter of seconds. If it's something you wouldn't want a family member seeing, don't have any photographic evidence of it, plain and simple. And Favre, sending a picture of Captain Winkie may not be the best tactic to pick up women. You are 40, get with the program, you should know better than to do that! If a guy sent me a picture of his junk, I'd reply with a "hahahahahaha" and never talk to him again.
Sending the picture to Jenn Sterger in particular might have been the dumbest part of the whole situation. Does he not know who Sterger is? She got her claim to fame by being hot. She has posed in Playboy and Maxim, her fame grabbing techniques have all been based on sex, and her implants. What else is she willing to do for fame? So why in the world would Favre send her of all people a picture of his peen? Ya, she turned him down, but she didn't just drop the situation, she used to to her advantage and leaked it. Oh, I'm sorry a "third-party" leaked her private photos, emails, and voicemails. She's now getting tons of publicity and press because of the whole ordeal, and she didn't "do anything wrong", so this is a win-win for her. Sterger had nothing to lose and only publicity to gain from this coming to light. Why don't we just go ahead and start campaigning Jenn Sterger Dancing with the Stars 2011.
Favre, good luck this weekend when you play the Jets, I think you're going to need it. If Jets fans were smart they would make posters of Jenn Sterger from the bust up and use them to distract him. Or they could make posters of his willie and watch him fail.
Now let's look back at the situation and see what we've learned. Men, don't take and send a picture of your trouser snake to someone, because it will get out. Athletes, stick to doing what you do best, playing the game on the field, because no one wants to know how you play the game off the field, and no one wants to see your tallywhacker.
