I usually avoid linking to professional bloggers here, because really, they don’t need our help. But this time, I make an exception. Deadspin’s Drew Magary, who’s not only one of the best writers in the country, but a resident of the DC metro area, has written one of the most powerful pieces I’ve come across in a long, long time. Just read it. Trust me.
I’m nearly 31, so I’m still kinda new to this whole “thirties” thing. And people of our generation don’t even have the benefit of a prime-time sitcom to guide us through the ups and downs, the way our parents did. Enter Sassy Marmalade, with tips and tricks on how to be a thirty-something woman.
Just… wow. Feast After Famine, with a powerful story about precious things.
I suppose it’s no secret that I compile my selections on Thursday night for your perusal on this lovely Friday. As I write tonight, I am watching our hometown Washington Capitals give it their all against the Boston Bruins. [pause for old-timey hisses/boos] So this essay about how weird the Caps’ 2011-12 campaign has been, courtesy of On Frozen Pond, hits me where I sit. Hockey is, it seems, like that. (And LET’S GO CAPS!)
And to take us out on this Nationals home-opener weekend, Unpopped Collar brings us racing chicken sausages. Don’t think too hard; just smile. Have a glorious weekend!
