Tennis

You may or may not have known this, but I played tennis in a past life. Yep. All through junior high, high school, and it even paid some of the bills when I played in college. I haven’t played in years, but this marathon 11-hour match between Isner and Mahut caught my attention. Seriously? ELEVEN hours and five minutes? Three days? Isner had 112 aces. I think the highest until that was something like 78 . . . ~~~ I’m so inspired by tennis players–well, athletes in general. They all work so hard. The dedication and time spent on improving.[…]

Buzzer Beaters

March Madness is in full swing. My husband has filled out his brackets and is gearing up to watch a ton of basketball. So, I thought it’d be fun to watch the top ten Buzzer Beaters!

THEN AND NOW THURSDAYS

I played it a few times as a kid, but I was never been a big fan of it. Most of the time it was just because I was too hyper to sit still that long to play a game. ***LOL*** But seriously, it sure has changed from when I was a kid. Heck, they’ve got a Monopoly for pretty much every theme now. Did you know it started selling[…]

INSPIRATION

As most of you know, I’m way into athletics. My husband is as well. So, when we heard this story a while ago, it really hit home. What feels like a lifetime ago, I competed pretty seriously in tennis. Yep—started playing in sixth grade! It took me through high school and actually even paid some of my undergrad tuition. So, I know the idea of competition and winning (losing too.) Sara Tucholsky of Western Oregon University hit her very first home run, ever! Yep, but she collapsed due to a knee injury and couldn’t make it around the bases. The[…]

COMEBACKS

Have you ever heard of Tiger Woods? Most have, and even those who don’t follow sports. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94F-HGwIniE] I like to think of myself as a sporty person.  I mean, I watch ESPN with my hubby all the time. I played high school and college tennis. Heck, I even suffered knee injuries that required surgery (yeah, both knees, sadly.) The media says Tiger is going to be scarier than ever. He was scary even BEFORE these injuries, and he’s saying that he’s feeling stronger than ever! Did you know that he  won the US open with a torn ACL? Oh, and[…]
