I think right now I'm the least valuable member of Sporting Chic.
Look- like any good businesswomen, I can admit when I'm wrong. When I'm not pulling my weight. Right now I'm the Sporting Chic equivalent to the person who brings a bag of chips to a pot luck.
I always pride myself on being the originator of jokes. When I'm in form, as Kristie stated in her BLUE VS WHITE COLLAR MOVING article, I call myself "the idea, big picture guy." That's why I had to hire a task rabbit to help me move out: I needed to make time to roll out my hips, and between that and originating new content, there's absolutely no way I was going to get everything done on my own. And of course, being the selfless, "bleed for the company" CFO that I am, I put moving out on the bottom of my priority list and paid the rabbit to make sure things were coming hot off the press for Sporting Chic.
Unfortunately, despite the help of a task rabbit, I now have to sit here and admit I let the Ragamuffin Diaries go to the back burner during the move. Kristie is writing hilarious articles, shooting for LifeTime TV and the NWSL right now AND keeping Sporting Chicers up to date on the Insta story. Sam is repping Sporting Chic playing for the #USWNT in the SheBelieves cup. (The USWNT has a game tonight vs. France. You can watch on FS1 and Fox Sports Go at 7pm ET.)
This morning as I was flipping through our Instagram story while I was washing a ketchup stain out of an N'Sync tee shirt, I realized all I've written this past week is a white fish recipe and I'm the company loser. Look, the white fish is good, but we all know cod fillets aren't putting this company on the world map.
If I continue with this complacency and don't snap out of it quick, I'll cement myself as the worst player on the team. Media outlets everywhere will say "Oh, that Mccaffrey had this talent for comedy blogging but she really let it slip through her fingers." Stephanie "Giovanni Carmazzi" McCaffrey. That's what they'll call me. (For those of you who don't know, Carmazzi was the guy drafted before Tom Brady that never started an NFL game.)
Sam and Kristie, I'm comin' for you. You all will have to take the reigns on the seafood the next few weeks. I'm a lot of things, but the "has been" of entry level comedy blogging for female athletes WILL NOT be one of them.
