Jamie wrote up his list and it was nice to see Bob included in it. Well done Bob. 🙂
As for that list, very US centric. Which is fine. There are a lot of sports bloggers that we don’t know about or in non-US sport (soccer) that are rather influential. But it is our world so we can define it how we want, eh?
“…You also have to question his assessment about Beckham becoming an actor. Have you ever heard Becks speak? There aren’t many parts in silent films these days.”
I read almost all of, “The Last Season” by former Bulls Coach Phil Jackson that chronicles the season that Shaq, Kobe, Gary Payton and Karl Malone were all LA Lakers on the way back from Vegas.
This quote by Tex Winter struck me as true:
“You are only a success at the moment that you do a successful act”
Phil Jackson explains that quote further with, “You can’t be a sucecss the next moment because you have already moved on to do something else, even if it’s accepting the award for the successful moment that just passed. That is why I’ve always told my players the glorification comes from the journey, not the outcome.”
Our World Cup Blog is back underway and I am excited about it. I also want to welcome the my newest colleague, Bob Kellett. He’ll be the managing editor and project manager for WCB and I super stoked to be able to work with him. If you are a friend of mine in Portland, I can’t wait to introduce him to you.
The Hall of Fame can do that to people. How else could one explain Sanders, one of the quietest, most humble superstars of the me-first generation, bragging about how excited he was to give his acceptance speech Sunday morning.
A great article about a student athlete and the impact he has on his team, school, community and city. This is what I envision our pro athletes should act like….not like our Pro Athlete Babies.
My Buddies are blogging their butts off for the Rugby World Cup in Australia this month. Chris has been going to a few of the games in Brissie and Chris O’Neill is raising hell during world cup time as he always has. I love it.
