What a week! I got so much done – assignments, blog posts, housework. It was intense. I’m hoping to have a few more of these before my trip mid-November. Lots to get done, never enough time.
A World Series Preview For Non-Sports Fans – Thought Catalog, Nathan Savin Scott. So funny. And so true. I’m a sports fan and this was even useful to me!
Beered-Up Baseball Drinking Game – Babes Dig Balls. Unfortunately, I was not so lucky as to play this game during Game 1 (I was home, alone, and when you drink alone, it’s called alcoholism) but it looks really good! And I must admit, I’m glad I wasn’t playing. There were several home runs which means to finish your drink. I would have been a hot mess. Maybe for Game 2?
Why Pediatricians Want Cheerleading To Be Called A Sport – Forbes SportsMoney, Bob Cook. I was a cheerleader for three years and let me tell you, with absolute certainty: IT IS A SPORT. If you can make it through a 5 minute cheerleading routine, which includes jumping, dancing, tumbling, lifting, throwing, spinning and screaming (with 100% coordination) without being out of breath – you are a machine. But that’s not what this is about – it’s about Title IX (never heard of it? LOOK IT UP) and injuries and how cheerleading plays into that. Such a drama.
Falcons First NFL Team Testing GPS Sports Technology To Prevent Injuries – Sportsnetworker, Mark Burns. This is pretty awesome. Technology has made it’s way into every aspect of our lives and it was only a matter of time before teams started using it to its full advantage. This specific technology can help to predict, and maybe prevent, injuries. Sounds like something the AFL needs…
David Stern Has Date For Retirement – ESPN, Brian Windhorst. This depresses me. David Stern is the man that I want to be (you know what I mean). He made the NBA what it is. With him retired, who will I idolize?!
