Breathe. Take a few moments to behold the amazingness that is the photo above.
This, my dear friends, is the cover for the New York Times Style Magazine on Sunday. I never get the Times and I already have a mound of maagazines that I haven't had time to read stacked in my living room, but this may need to be added to the pile.
Football season starts tomorrow (woot!). Time to sharpen those mock-your-rival-team skills.
Being an Eagles fan, the Giants are among the my most hated teams. I revel in the Giants' misery. And, more than anything else, I laugh at their quarterback.
The Giants give all opponents the easy comedic target of Eli Manning. Many times when watching Giants' games I have to bite my tongue so that I can stop being mean to Eli.
Cole Hamels certainly has the looks of a supermodel. But he always messes them up somehow. By speaking. Or appearing in ads and being creepy with his pregnant wife or hanging out with random children. In bed. Yeah, that's normal.
Hamels seems like a really nice man but the Phillies ace also he seems incredibly awkward.
I know about sports fandom. It often borders on fanaticism. It's passion and a total blindness to logic that, when done properly, are fun as hell.

Hee hee. Thanks, Ms. Julia!
A post about the third and final installation of the most recent Batman franchise, "The Dark Knight Rises," on The Sports Muse, you ask? Yep.
Stay with me.
The Sports Muse is not a place where I typically reveal my non-sports related celebrity crushes. But exceptional times call for exceptional measures.
Look, ma! I'm podcasting!
It's been a whirlwind of a week for sports fans, especially those who love the wonderful game of football. The lockout ended after 4 1/2 awful months, and the Eagles have done their darndest to make up for lost ground over the past 6 days.
I haven't forgotten about you, Sports Muse readers--I've just been working on ways to turn this site into a multimedia masterpiece.
Did you tune in to the ESPYs on Wednesday night? If not, don't you worry. It doesn't sound like many other people did, either. The awards show suffered its lowest ratings since 1995.
Evidently, only just under 2 million of us--1.94 million, to be exact-- bothered to tune in to the glitz and glam of the sports world. These numbers are down 24% from the show's viewership last year, when 2.61 million people tuned in.
