Should pitch count limits be waived in perfect games?

That’s what one parent who watch a player have to give up the ball after throwing five perfect innings thinks. This Time Magazine article by Sean Gregory makes the case on both sides.


Slogan for Today

We know it’s hard today. First full week back after the holidays. Cold as heck out there. The prospect of a long winter ahead. Shake it off! We’re calling today, “Go get ’em Monday!” Have another cup of coffee and make today a great one! Remember those resolutions and live up to them! Happy Monday!

It’s so cold…no excuses!

Yes, much of the hemisphere is experiencing bitter cold and snow right now, making outdoor activity unpleasant and even precarious. So those New Year resolutions to stay fit are going by the wayside, right? I mean, we can’t go outside! There’s plenty you can do to get or stay active without opening your front door, (even if the snow drift would allow it). Here is a list we’ve put together. How many can you do today?

  • Walk the stairs. (Set a goal for number of round trips and then each day add one)
  • Pushups
  • Situps/Crunches
  • Chinups
  • Ride a stationary bike
  • Lunges
  • Squats (Do 20 every time you brush your teeth)
  • Yoga
  • Follow an online fitness workout you find on YouTube

What other suggestions do you have? Happy, active Friday!

It’s so Friday!

So be sure to get outdoors, (weather, schmeather) and make that heart pump! Take a walk or a jog, kick the ball with your kids, shoot some hoops, do something to work off some of that future turkey! Have a great weekend!

Plan your turkey bowl now!

Believe it or not, Thanksgiving is a scant two weeks away. If you’ve never done it before, or if you have, we suggest a fun Turkey Bowl to work up an appetite? What’s a Turkey Bowl? A good game of football with friends and or family. We’ve seen some elaborate flag games with multiple teams vying for monetary stakes…and more often a group of people laughing and running around playing tap. Either way, get the word out now, set up the time and place and start your own holiday tradition!
