On Women In Sports: Fight the Power Outage

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) This article never appeared during my workday yesterday (or anything published after the Google Glass thing on the 12th). I must have been having cache problems.

@katiemcgillicuddy Yeah, congrats to Boston as a city, but fuck the Red Sox and especially John Farrell forever. (I actually like or don't mind a large number of their players but as a general entity and fandom, blerrrrrgh.)

@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) The Varlamov-Related Week On The Internet has been a rough reminder that sports culture/general human society are not welcoming to women. It was super cool that the guys who run the Blackhawks site I frequent came out hard against Varlamov and the general treatment of domestic violence in sports (they are super against the 'Hawks having Bobby Hull as an ambassador/at games for the same reason, which I also find pretty disgusting) but some of the comment wars that ensued ... certainly looking at some people differently. Dudes dragged false rape accusations into arguments. It was a bad time.

@katiemcgillicuddy AAAAAHHH HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY! Birthday weekend? You should drink 1) the tears of your enemies and 2) some good-ass bourbon (possibly in an Old Fashioned).

On Ask a Dietitian: Wine Time, Fruit Soup, Our Forbidden Lover (Diet Coke)

@katiechasm There was a (REALLY SMALL) study somewhat recently suggesting that people became more drunk when using artifically sweetened mixers vs full-sugar ones. From a co-author: Dennis L. Thombs, co-author of the latest study, noted that the stomach seems to treat sugar-sweetened beverages like food, which delays the stomach from emptying. "The best way to think about these effects is that sugar-sweetened alcohol mixers slow down the absorption of alcohol into [the] bloodstream. Artificially sweetened alcohol mixers do not really elevate alcohol intoxication. Rather, the lack of sugar simply allows the rate of alcohol absorption to occur without hindrance."
For your consideration etc.

On ASTR, "Hold On We're Going Home" (Drake Cover)

This is like the version of "Hold On We're Going Home" I sing in the shower, but good.
