Krystina Ramey was born and raised in the Appalachian Mountains in the great state of Tennessee. An athlete since the age of 4, Krystina has always had a passion for sports. Her love for broadcasting, however, didn’t come until later on in life. In fact, Krystina graduated from East Tennessee State University in 2009 with a degree in Graphic Design. It wasn’t until she pursued an internship with a radio station in West Palm Beach, FL that she knew she wanted a career in radio.
After interning for a year in Florida, Krystina decided it was time to move on to bigger and better things. She packed everything she could fit into her 2-door hatchback and drove to California to start a new life. She is ecstatic to have the opportunity to work with Fox Sports and sees big things in her future.
While Krystina spends most of her time aimlessly trying to convert Californians into lovers of the Southeastern Conference or the Atlanta Braves, she is slowly but surely developing a passion for sports in Southern Cali. When she’s not watching the game, you can find her jamming out to music – her life’s 2nd passion – or outside doing something active. She also loves shopping, traveling, and – of course – playing sports.
Ohhh, TO... you are a constant source of sports and media hilarity. First, it's holding shirtless press conferences in your driveway to do sit-ups on camera. Then, it's appearing on the Dr. Phil show with your 4 (count 'em, F-O-U-R) baby mamas and weeping openly on national television. What else could you possibly have done to add to your list of humiliation?
Well, the 6'3", ~225 pound wide receiver got beaten - in basketball - by a little person. That's right, a former professional athlete could not beat a little person in a game that is mostly about height. Go little dude.

Happy 2013 sports fans! I hope you all had a great holiday and are back doin’ it big in the new year. In the spirit of the season, I thought I would use my inaugural 2013 blog to bring you some of the best sports holiday videos of the past few years.
The NBA owns Christmas, and they always find a way to do it right. This year, they chose to debut some snazzy new uniforms during all of their Christmas day games. Were you a fan?
I personally liked the new get-ups. They had a really nice pop on the court – kinda reminded me of Christmas decorations! (Hmm, that was probably the point…)
Last year, TNT took a shot at their “Inside the NBA” anchors with a hilarious Christmas ad that compared today’s rising stars to yesterday’s legends... which Christmas package would you rather get?
Somehow that kid didn’t quite sell me on his love for Dirk Nowitzki…
Now on to one of the, odder, holiday commercials I’ve seen… Once upon a time, there was a puppeteer who thought it would be a good idea to make two of basketball’s greatest stars into puppets and have them play basketball with Santa Claus and some reindeer. Think I’m kidding?
That video was so weird I honestly don't even know what to say... Anyone else have a weird feeling in their tummy now?
Getting back to some real basketball players… One of the best parts of the holidays is athletes singing Christmas carols! And there’s no athlete out there who loves to sing more than Dirk Nowitzki. Here, he and his Mavericks teammates take on “Sleigh Ride.”
While the Mavs can’t seem to remember the words to their song, a few other NBA players decided to make up their own. Forgive me for pointing out that the Clippers continue to dominate everyone else…
And finally, I leave you with one college basketball clip. Apparently there’s a school in Indiana called Taylor University, and apparently every year they put on what they’ve dubbed a “Silent Night” game. I had never heard of either of these things before I saw this clip, but now I’m super jealous and wish I had gone to this school…
(Note: this audio is not muted)
The point of the costumes, I’m not sure, but I get chills every time I watch that video…
Have a great 2013 all! Good luck keeping your resolutions…
