Name my sports column

    I've been at my current shop for eight weeks and Sunday I debut my column. Per newspaper policy, all our columns must have a title. Our managing editor's column is 30something. Our editor's column is A Letter to our Readers. I am suffering from title block. I've got a few cheesy ideas, but this is something I'm going to be stuck with. So if you've got any ideas -- something funny, something punchy, something classy, just something -- I'm open to suggestions.

    P.S. And yes I realize having a sports column title is a stupid-ass idea. I don't like it, but I'm stuck with it.

    P.S.S. Sarcastic responses are expected and appreciated, though not very helpful. But feel free nonetheless. ;D

    "Smeared Eyeliner"

    Hey, they worked for me.

    Good stuff so far.

    I'm a dude and in a red state. It would be my first and last column.

    With you, I'm surprised "Head Over (High) Heels" wasn't suggested. :D

    Sorry, me and a friend of mine did that in college. I think we copyrighted it. Or maybe we just got drunk.

    How about "I wish I was Jay Mariotti"?
