Introducing GSNYC's Alter Ego: Bullpen Betty

Bullpen Betty

My baseball rants have become a separate human. Please like me as much as the Academy liked Sally Field back in 1984:

My passion (obsession?) just makes me wanna bring humor & help restore the cool factor to baseball, while challenging stereotypes about sports & gender. With ridiculous emphasis on the New York Yankees. (Sorry mom).

Featuring game and player commentary, personal anecdotes, historical references, interviews, photos, music, bar reviews and whatever else the cat drags in. We're just getting going so stay tuned for podcasts and check out the Twitter feed:

Friends don't let friends wear pink baseball hats.

Milk & Honey: Design Your Own Shoes

While I have not seen what any of these shoes look like in person, I just spent about an hour designing a few pairs.  And I could easily spend countless hours on more.

In steps Milk & Honey: an online shoe company founded by sisters, based in Los Angeles.  

The site is extremely user-friendly. The options are endless; I'm not sure what the mathematical permutation is, but I think that infinity might be close to the number of combinations of styles you could come up with.  AND they cater to all types of shoe lovers:  Shoe Hootchie, Shoe Virgin, Shoe Maniac, Shoe Guru, Shoelapalosa, Shoe Jockey, Shoeless Joe Jackson ... you name it.
