We Can Rebuild Her……..we think

Dear NFL Commissioner

I’m going to keep this short and sweet because I have a bunch of things to cross of the to-do list today. Mainly homework and appointments, okay 5% appointments and 95% homework because I’m trying to work ahead. I may have mentioned once or twice about how I’m a sports fan. Well one of my beloved sports is losing it’s integrity. Football…..dear sweet football. Greed and stubbornness and seriously sloppy calls ruined what should have been a great game of Monday Night Football. Thanks to the poor calls made my replacement NFL referees something that was clearly an interception was ruled a touchdown. So this message is for Roger Goodell, NFL Commissioner….

Dear Roger Goodell,

Frankly I don’t understand what the huge hold up is with the owners settling things with the real referees. This isn’t an issue that concerns billions of dollars. And in the end the increase the league would have to make to accommodate the referees really isn’t much. As Peter King said, “the difference between the NFL and the refs’ union is $3.3 million a year. Well, there are 256 regular season games. The NFL could have the real refs if it forked over an extra $12,891 per game.

That is less than 20 cents for every paying customer.”

I can’t completely blame the replacement refs because the league and owners put them in a situation they weren’t prepared to handle. So please do all NFL fans and players a favor and end this now. Bring back our refs so we can restore what’s left of football’s dignity before it’s too late.
Sincerely,
A Disheartened NFL Fan

Fantasy Football

Are you ready for some footbaaallll! I’ve had the theme song for Sunday Night Football and Monday Night Football stuck in my head since I was little. Have I mentioned before that I’m a sports addict. Yeah addict is putting it nicely. I have apparel for every team I root for, except rugby because I’m still undecided on that one. I get text alerts sent through ESPN, got the ESPN app high on my go to list on my phone, ESPN and every team’s website is bookmarked on my toolbar. So yeah I like sports a little, LOL.

My favorite has always, and will always be football. That’s the first sport my mom and I bonded over. Being raised in Texas she was a Cowboys fan. As mommy’s little girl I wanted to follow in her footsteps. But since I’m from Philly it wouldn’t be a good idea for me to be a Cowboys fan, people get pretty heated over that rivalry. So I’m a Pittsburgh Steelers fan. WOO! I do have hometown loyalties to the Philadelphia Flyers and Phillies though.

I’ve never been afraid to voice my opinion when guys have a sports debate in my presence. Usually I get a confused look because there are lots of guys who assume that women know nothing about sports and I’m just rooting for my man’s team. Not the case. I have no problem talking smack on sports I follow. So last year one of my friends got me to join his fantasy football league because I said something about being interested in trying it out. I didn’t do too bad for my first year, think I finished 7 out of 10. Not too shabby if I say so myself. Of course when the time came this year I scoured Yahoo, ESPN and NFL.com for leagues to join. Because of all the downtime I have thanks to my back injury I ended up in four different leagues. Mostly because people weren’t active so I kept trying to find leagues where people were active. There’s nothing more irritating than people who auto-draft. I understand if you have to work or something comes up. But with all the options out there you can find a league that fits your schedule. Whatever. Now the first thing I check on Mondays are the current match-ups to see how I’m doing. I don’t do it for monetary prizes, I do it for bragging rights. Right now I’m winning 3 out of 4, hopefully I get a great game and the points I need to make it 4 out of 4 after tonight’s game. We shall see

Cerebral Palsy Inspirational Run: Matt Woodrum Cheered on by Family and Classmates – YouTube

Cerebral Palsy Inspirational Run: Matt Woodrum Cheered on by Family and Classmates – YouTube.

When John Blaine realized 11-year-old Matt Woodrum was struggling through his 400-meter race at school in central Ohio, the physical education teacher felt compelled to walk over and check on the boy.

“Matt, you’re not going to stop, are you?” he encouragingly asked Woodrum, who has cerebral palsy.

“No way,” said the panting, yet determined, fifth-grader.

Almost spontaneously, dozens of Woodrum’s classmates — many who had participated earlier in the school’s field day — converged alongside him, running and cheering on Woodrum as he completed his final lap under the hot sun.

The race on May 16, captured on video by Woodrum’s mother, is now capturing the attention of strangers on the Internet, many who call the boy and his classmates an inspiration to be more compassionate toward each other. A nearly five-minute YouTube video posted this week by the boy’s uncle has received more than 680,000 views.

Woodrum, who has spastic cerebral palsy that greatly affects his muscle movement, said he had a few moments where he struggled.

“I knew I would finish it,” said the soft-spoken Woodrum, who attends Colonial Hills Elementary School in suburban Worthington. “But there were a couple of parts of the race where I really felt like giving up.”

Olympic Fever

It’s funny how when the Olympics start you notice people rallying around their country. No matter what sport it is, people will stop and watch. Here, you hear the Go Team USA chants in doctors offices and bars.

There’s this big sense of pride knowing we have so many athletes competing for medals. We clap softly and say”that’s okay at least you made it there” if someone just misses getting a medal. And when they do get one….we’re loud and proud! For a short time we all come together as a nation.
