Like all other major league teams, questions abound for the Cincinnati Reds as the team prepares to embark upon its 2013 season. Who’s going to produce, how’s the bullpen going to hold up, how is the competition going to set up in the National League Central and so on and so forth. But all speculation may be for naught now, because according to one Reds fan, a pancake he recently cooked up which appears to feature the team’s “C” logo might be an encouraging omen of good things to come for the ballclub. An oracle that is as revealing as it is tasty, if you will. The Reds fan who claims responsibility for the possible culinary omen is Joel Knueven, and he describes how the simple exercise of whipping up a batch of chocolate chip pancakes last Sunday resulted in an eerie development. Via OMGReds (by way of Eye on Baseball): While making chocolate chip pancakes with his son the morning of Sunday, March 24, Knueven flipped one over and right in the middle of the flap jack was a wishbone “C”.  “The Lord works in mysterious ways, I’m just glad that my pancake batter ladle was chosen as the conduit through which this covenant was made with Reds faithful” said Knueven.  “This was NOT planned, nor did I use some template to try to create it–it looks so dead on that people have asked me that question.” Knueven has since listed the treasured breakfast treat-turned-harbinger of a possible World Series title (at least in his eyes) on eBay. The listing: CINCINNATI REDS MIRACLE PANCAKE!   The Cincinnati Reds wishbone “C” miraculously appeared on this amazing pancake. It is believed to be a divine prophecy that the Cincinnati Reds will be World Champions in 2013.   Here is your chance to own a supernatural memento of what is certain to be a historic Cincinnati Reds season. This carefully preserved chocolate chip pancake has been frozen and placed within an air tight container to insure that it’s message of hope can be seen by the world.    Shipment costs may be higher due to the fact that climate controlled transport should be secured to maintain the integrity of this priceless artifact.  All proceeds from auction will be donated to the Reds Community Fund. The opening asking price? $50. But as you read above, any proceeds will be donated to charity, so that’s nice that he’s not trying to profit off divine, pancake-based intervention. But if you ask me, I usually stick with crepes for all of my batter-based signs of baseball soothsaying. Don’t ask me why, it’s just how I roll.

Kobe responds to Aldridge report with funny meme

Kobe Bryant has now gone five years without winning an NBA championship. Before that, Bryant went a solid seven years without tasting the sweet flavor of holding the Larry O’Brien Trophy.

England loses World Cup semifinal to Japan in heartbreaking fashion

There are few feelings more deflating in the game of soccer than allowing an own goal. Sending the ball into your own net in the semifinal of World Cup action is one example of a more painful, disastrous moment. In the 92nd minute of a 1-1 tie against defending champion Japan, England defender Laura Bassett attempted to clear a well-placed cross, but her ill-fated deflection...

With Kevin Love retained, the Cavs can take care of LeBron

The notion of “taking care of a player” most commonly refers to a generous financial package. It also refers to the attempt to surround him with the right players. In the case of LeBron James, the Cleveland Cavaliers have taken care of him in a third way: They’ve put themselves in position to make LeBron’s physical workload a lot lighter than it’s been in the past.
