About The Blonde:

A star athlete since the age of five when she struggled to pop her first wheelie showing off for a boy, Jayme has always had a knack for adventure and sports. Playing them, watching them, bossing other people around on how to play them – the whole nine. After working in professional sports in PR and marketing for 5 long years, Jayme was finally escorted out of the industry for what some would call non – PC behavior. Hell, it’s served her better than the Astros repeated dismal seasons, has it not?

The good thing about not being on a team’s payroll is that Jayme is now back in full force with her greatest accessory – her opinions. Which she has many of.

Originally from Virginia, Jayme relocated to Houston seven years ago and has since been making a name for herself. She is in her purest form, a conundrum.  She is delightfully unrefined. She is a lover of sports & words.  She is a serial do-gooder with a limited filter.

She comes equipped with her own little black cloud overhead. She is a freelance writer, with a focus on sports, travel and fitness, who can turn the most mundane of stories into a sexy art form with nothing more than words and a little bit of inaccurate punctuation. (Subsequently she was the same girl attempting to get Corporate America to embrace the word ‘sexy’, but has since moved on to bigger things such as ridding the world of Tim Tebow fans everywhere.)

She is a fan of all sports, but is a fanatical Eagles fan thanks to a starter jacket. She loves her choking ALCS team, the Rangers, and with or without LeBron, is a Miami Heat fan and doesn’t care who talks smack to her on Twitter because of it.

The only accolades thus far for The Blonde Side are being named CBS Houston’s Most Valuable Sport’s Blogger 2011, which is pretty good stuff, along with being named a Women’s Health Action Hero two years in a row. And more to come.

Jayme has recently taken on a television role (scary, yes) with FOX26 Houston, Sports Uncensored, where she focuses on the good, the bad and the extremely ugly parts of Houston sports.

Finding herself on the ground at many sporting events, Jayme has covered events such as the ESPYS, both the Winter and Summer XGames, NFL games all across North America including the Pro Bowl in Hawaii, and pretty much any and every other sporting event you can imagine (or dream of attending).

Earlier in 2013, Jayme took a brief hiatus from The Blonde Side to write the self-deprecating memoir she has been living out loud since birth. Those three and a half months living like a beach-bum gypsy on the North Shore of Oahu were the best months of her life, really clearing out the cobwebs and refocusing her efforts on the things that matter most: family and sports. (Note, she’s still looking for the perfect publisher who won’t try to cut down on the foul language and embarrassing situations noted on each and every page.)

Jayme’s entire life has been the epitome of unorthodox complete with broken bones, twenty-four surgeries which may or may not include implants, medical mysteries, and the worst of luck thanks to her little black cloud overhead. (Note, said wheelie landed her 12 stitches in the chin). She vows never to make out with a professional athlete again. Maybe an amateur here or there, but that’s the extent.

About The Blonde Side:

The Blonde Side is a sports column written by a horribly opinionated blonde whose hair color may or may not be naturally blonde (thanks Roi!). The column covers all things sports and often adds a unique element to attract even the most faint of sport’s fans.

The Blonde Side was not created to join the masses of other prolific sport’s writers and offer opinions on the same tried and true stories that already over-saturate the market. Nor was it meant to throw a hat into the already saturated market of simply regurgitated sports news and stats that can be simultaneously heard across all modern mediums. ESPN has this market covered. Marvelously I might add.

The goal of this column is to make a regular appearance on a few reputable websites and magazines. It is for sale to the highest bidder (in US dollars, not candy bars or anything else silly). In the meantime and in the spirit of sharing, if you have a website or publication that you’d like to use The Blonde Side for, just ask. Seriously, ask. Or else my three-piece suited attorney will come after you. If you have an idea or would like to hire The Blonde Side to write for one of your publications (note, size doesn’t always matter), please send an email to jayme@theblondeside.com to work out some of the nitty gritty details, which really aren’t so nitty gritty after all.
