New Sports Bar Catering To Women Is Offensive To My Delicate Lady Sensibilities

I am a woman. A woman who happens to enjoy sports. And while it's not often that I'll go to a sports bar to take in a Lions or Tigers or Red Wings game, it's been known to happen. Generally, the only thing at a sports bar that will irritate me while watching a game is the overly enthusiastic bros at the giant table who yell and high-five each other every time something even remotely positive happens. "The Lions didn't score a touchdown, but no one fumbled the ball! High five, bro!" *everyone slaps hands while I roll my eyes so hard it gives me a migraine*

The entire U.S. has been hit by what can only be described as a brutal winter. With more storms rolling through many parts of the country this week, it's just added more misery to those of us experiencing it.

Many parents say their children have barely been in school since the school year started, and that seems to be true across the country. Minford, OH (a small rural community in Southern Ohio) has experienced quite a few school closings this year, so someone at the school decided to make the phone call that goes out to students and teachers announcing a closing a little more fun.
