As I sit firmly planted on the couch, enjoying another full day of March Madness, I noticed a trend amongst the basketball players.
(And I’m not talking about falling seeds.)
More and more are wearing tights under their shorts. A quick survey of Google images reveals many NBA players are making this choice as well.
I for one consider it a slam dunk.
Being a fairly pasty person, I find displaying my glowing gams to be a fashion don’t . The older I get, the smarter this decision becomes.
If these basketball leggings inspire fashion designers of everyday wear…
The NCAA tourney will have more than one winner this year!

I started following @SteveJobQuotes on Twitter when the account appeared following his untimely death.
The account was exactly that — inspirational quotes from Jobs taken from his live talks or book.
It was food for thought.
But lately the tweets have taken a turn. Only today, “The best ways to flirt” and “Deadly fashion sins” were on their newsfeed.
I can’t picture Jobs having much to say on either topic, except perhaps —
“A black turtleneck is always right.”

What makes a person look older?
Grey hair? Mom jeans? A few extra pounds?
According to the announcers calling the UK-Florida basketball game —
The announcer actually called them ‘cheaters’ when he spied them in the crowd on UK superfan and actress Ashley Judd. You could hear his disbelief, his teenage fantasies becoming as blurry as the words on her game day program.
She had aged before his very eyes.
One word: progressives.

What does the term ‘boyfriend jeans’ mean to you?
Loose jeans? Distressed jeans? Or…
Super sexy jeans?
Old Navy is now selling this popular style to girls and babies, and continuing to call them boyfriend jeans. Some parents and psychologists argue that this name is inappropriate for such a young clientele, who shouldn’t be thinking about wearing their boyfriend’s jeans or even have a boyfriend at all.
In the words of Seth and Amy at the SNL Weekend Update desk — “Really?”
I’d argue that the ‘highly sexualized nature’ of the name lies in the minds of these doctors and parents. Jeans shoppers have heard it in the marketplace for years; it simply means ‘loose fitting.’ Any babies and little girls made aware of the name will define it in terms of their own innocent friendships (unless their parents attempt to explain it in an adult context and scar them forever).
Keep calm and carry on, parents. There are far bigger boogie men out there to fight.

Have you seen the dress that has blown up the Internet?
Looks white and gold to me…although the woman who originally posted the pic has revealed the dress is really blue and black.
What colors do you see?

A Most Violent Year, starring Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain, garnered no Oscar love this year.
The Best Actor and Actress categories runneth over, so in a way, it’s understandable.
But the brilliant costume designers who put Isaac in this black turtleneck sweater and camel hair coat —
Hand them the statue, damn it.
Was even more lethal on the big screen.
