A Challenge

February 25, 2019

You’ve probably seen news reports with pretty alarming pictures of sink holes in Florida. It occurred to me that people should be on guard for ‘conversational sink holes’ that can put a damper on your day. Will Bowen is a pastor in Kansas and wrote a best selling book called A Complaint Free World. In […]

Perspective

February 25, 2019

A very young cowboy has taken author Julia Cameron’s advice and writes Morning Pages each day. They are three pages of streaming thought and the habit is a great way to start the day. Every morning, a part of the writing centers on gratitude and looking beyond the daily, inevitable trials and inconveniences that flow […]

Confidence in sports

February 23, 2019

Dustin Johnson is not just the best golfer on the planet, he is an amazing athlete. He’s atop the leaderboard again in Mexico City leading Rory McIlroy by four shots heading into the final round. The panel of commentators were describing his technical prowess and how he is so far above other players in many […]

NBA Farce

February 17, 2019

Well…The NBA All Star game remains the farce it’s devolved into in recent years. With at least 15 uncontested dunks in the first six minutes, the accompanying picture seems very appropriate. C’mon guys. ** Note to NBA commissioner…awarding players on the winning team $100,000 has not worked. I mean that’s basically chump change for these […]

Horses lend you their power, which helps when you’re trying to heal. The moment you’re on a horse, you’re bigger, stronger, more powerful, more beautiful. Rupert Isaacson

Cell phone addiction

February 17, 2019

Wendy’s message at church today was about marriage and family. She did a terrific job comparing married life to a couple being shipmates on a boat…sailing upon seas that are often turbulent. The fella to my right is hoping that next week’s message is on addiction…as he didn’t hear a word that Wendy said because […]

Mending

February 17, 2019

There is a term in flyfishing called mending. An angler ‘mends’ her line when the current is pulling the fly downstream and creating drag. One expert instructor encourages people to imagine that their line is moving down a sidewalk and that it drifts down into the gutter. He teaches to just lift the line up […]

Country flair

February 16, 2019

Over the last fifteen years or so, I’ve come to really enjoy country music. If you loved Take me home country roads by John Denver, this video of various artists will be hard not to watch in its entirety. Enjoy. Click on arrow and then scroll to second arrow.

Persistence

February 15, 2019

During a televised women’s singles match this week, a commentator praised a player for ‘digging in her heels’ and playing error free tennis. What would ‘digging in your heels’ mean for you? ** refusing to go too big too early in a point ** shrugging off a double fault and making four first serves in […]

Irv Brown

February 7, 2019

A legend left us last week. Irv Brown…maybe we should call him Mr. Everything. He was a husband, father, outstanding high school and collegiate athlete, coach, revered sportscaster and talk show host, and terrific college hoops referee with an encyclopedic memory of all things and players in Colorado sports over sixty plus years. Irv’s enthusiasm […]

Snooze Bowl

February 4, 2019

Wowser…Gladys Knight gave a splendiferous/memorable performance of The National Anthem before The Super Bowl yesterday! Most people believe the game was a ‘yawner’ with about as much excitement as a segment of The  TV show Jeopardy and that the halftime entertainment with Maroon 5 and friends was absolutely forgettable. Thank goodness for Gladys Knight!

Amazing Amy

February 3, 2019

It’s reported that this meeting between Gary Woodland and Amy Brockerstette was the greatest experience of his golfing life. I think you’ll quickly see why.   ** fast forward to today and Gary Woodland played brilliantly to win The 119th. U.S. Open at Pebble Beach. I’m guessing his experience with Amy still ranks right up there […]

The Master

February 2, 2019

When you view this photo at contact…’the moment of truth’, ask yourself if the master had turned his hand over milliseconds before striking the ball…what chance would he have had to clear the net. The truth is that the young (well coached) girl in Tennis Terminology no doubt looked just like Roger at the critical […]

Tennis terminology

February 2, 2019

I cringe when players say they’ve been coached to produce ‘over spin’ on their ground strokes. The phrase unfortunately sends the wrong message to the wrist and forearm…’to produce topspin, turn the hand and forearm over’. Ouch. Get a refund if your coach speaks of over spin and turning the hand and forearm over in […]
