My Sweet Girl!

Post from the Past: Soccer Champ!

Tonight, my older daughter is playing in her first Varsity Regional Playoff Tournament. The league she currently plays in competes against Christian and Catholic schools who are unable to play against public school teams. They won their division outright, and tonight are in the semi-finals game to determine who will play in the Regional Championship…

Living Down to Expectations

A couple of weeks ago, I saw a link to a story on CNN.com that discussed the abysmal literacy rates for college athletes in both public and private universities.

Straggling Comments

It’s funny how a post this old still gets occasional comments. And, for the record, Rivers seems to have never acted this way again (at least not that I’ve seen). I do like the guy, too. But I doubt that this post will generate comments – certainly not three seasons out.

Dunking and Sportsmanship

We’re big Orlando Magic fans around here, and just LOVED Dwight Howard’s slam dunk win last year during the All Star Break. And when asked what makes him most proud of his son – Slam Dunk Champ, top player in the NBA, Olympic Gold Medal Winner – Dwight’s dad said he was most proud of…

Lewd and Lascivious Behavior

Can someone tell me why I can’t watch the Super Bowl with my kids without changing the channel at every third commercial?  For example, at just after 7 EST (4 in the afternoon for West Coasters!), we had the girls cover their eyes QUICK when a Fast and Furious commercial came on.  Thank God we…
