Wendy Haskell, 32,alleges in a lawsuit that Moon required her to wear thong underwear and share his bed during business trips. According to the lawsuit, which was filed Monday in California, Moon said she had to comply to remain with the firm and mentioned that “his prior assistant accepted the same arrangement.” The lawsuit also says that Moon committed sexual battery by grabbing her crotch during a business trip to Seattle. He also allegedly pulled off her bathing suit after slipping a drug into her drink during a recent business trip to Mexico in October.Haskell wanted her name to be public, and since this allegation, Moon, who is a regular commentator for Seattle Seahawks games on the radio, has requested a leave of absence. Unfortunately, this isn't Moon's first run-in with this issue. He was sued for sexual harassment in 1995 by a Vikings cheerleader. That case was settled out of court. Moon doesn't have a good track record in his relationships with women. However, since his missteps in the 90's, things have been relatively quiet. These allegations will definitely hurt his career both now and in the future. In the meantime, while these allegations are horrific, we should all be careful not to assume anything. We must both believe the alleged victim and perpetrator. Both deserve fair treatment and a reserved judgement until facts are uncovered. Sadly, I think more women who work in sports will start coming forward. What do you think?
"Patriotism" (and not the nationalist kind), and some would say racism, prevails in the League. It has also now given full credibility to the "Gronk being Gronk" clause, allowing it to thrive and thereby excusing what should be viewed as something akin to a criminal act."It's an intense game." "It's just 'Gronk being Gronk'." "Players are emotional, and White was 'holding' him. Gronk was frustrated." These are all the excuses I heard and/or read regarding this particular incident and it's all crap. With what we know now about CTE, what Gronk did was inexcusable, and if the NFL is serious about deterring this behavior, he should have received a 3-4 game suspension. Truth be told, while Gronk is responsible for what he did, all of this doesn't fall in his lap. He's been coddled, excused and given a pass, so the NFL needs to step up and hold the Patriots and its players to the same standard they do other players in the league. Gronkowski did apologize as did coach Belichick, but the damage has been done. Let a player hit Gronk like he did and injure him. There would be hell to pay.

The holiday season has started which means fun with family and friends. Gathering around a table for a feast with our loved ones can be fun, but it can also put quite a dent in our efforts to keep a healthy lifestyle.
This season, keep your diet on track! Founder and Owner of Burn, Lisa Corsello, wants to share these five tips to keep your weight in check during the holidays, while still being able to enjoy the assortment of foods on the dinner table.
1. Weigh Yourself Regularly- Studies show that those who weigh themselves regularly are able to maintain their weight more easily. By being aware of when we start to gain weight, we can make small, manageable adjustments to diet and exercise to maintain weight.
2. Exercise Portion Control- Don't skip meals or deprive yourself of the foods you love this holiday season. Instead, practice eating only half of what you would normally eat when it comes to dessert and rich side dishes. Load up on the healthier side dishes (high fiber veggies) and leaner cuts of meat (breast) so you'll stay fuller longer.
3. Stay Active- Try to carve out a bit of time for exercise each day. Not only will regular exercise help maintain your weight, but it's also a great way to relieve stress and sleep better.
4. Plan Ahead- Go online and research just how many calories are in the foods you normally eat during the holiday season. Being aware of what you're putting in your body can help you find healthier alternatives. Also, try to stock up on healthy snacks that help ease cravings and satisfy your appetite, such as nuts or plain popcorn.
5. Change it Up- Try a new exercise class, walking/running route, or sport. Trying something different will challenge your body in a new and healthy way, and it will help keep your routine fresh and your mind more engaged.
Tip: Rate your current exercise routine on a scale of 1-10, 1 being something extremely easy and 10 the most challenging. During your next workout, try to increase that number by 1. After a week, if you're feeling good, increase it again. Being mindful of the quality of your workout will help lead to better, healthier routines with great results.
The High Heeled Boot
This classic boot works well with just about any outfit. Jeans, skirts, jackets, sweater dresses and leggings all get a step up with a high heeled boot. I think every Jersey Girl should have at least two pair: in black and in brown. Now, when going to a football stadium, these boots may not be the best choice. However, the sports bar and even the NBA game work well, depending on how much walking you do.Whatever your favorite sport, be it football, basketball, or hockey, step out sporty and sexy. Step up your shoe game and give it the boot!
We always say you can stay sporty and sexy, but in the winter, stay warm and sporty and sexy. The right coat makes the right statement for the right style.
