August Photo a Day - Something You Hate

Hey there.  Today's picture is something that I hate.  That's pretty easy.  I hate hate.  I hate it when people discriminate against others.  Why hate?  Why not embrace?  Why not learn from our differences?  You know, the world would be such a better place without hate.  No wars, no violence, no stupid racist tweets from Olympic athletes (yeah, that happened).  My motto is "make pride universal."  I stole that from a Pantera song.  When I first heard it, I hit me.  No matter what, be who you be and that's it.  No envy, no greed, no jealousy, and no hate.  Hate is something that we can use a lot less of and I can't wait until it happens.  Later!

Motivational Monday - Pwnage

After last night's awesome sprint, you can't help but think that the fastest man on Earth is toying with the competition!

Be SOGO Active and Win a Chance to be an Olympic Torchbearer

Hey there friends. I love the Olympics. I may not always agree with the games, but I love the fact that there is world wide stage where the best athletes of every country gather and compete against one another. The Olympics is where race does not matter and nationality and pride reign supreme. The majority of us were not blessed with top notch athletic ability and we may never get a chance to experience the Olympics as an athlete. But all is not lost!

Coca Cola's SOGO Active program is offering the chance to be one of 1000 torchbearers for the Vancouver 2010 Olympics in Canada. Imagine being rewarded for playing football, hockey, running, soccer, and other great sports? Not only that, but cardio and weight training as well? So, how do you enter for your chance to be a part of history? You simply sign up at SOGO Active and commit to a healthy and active lifestyle. It's that simple.

So even though you may not be the most athletic person in your community, take pride in the fact that you have committed to a healthy lifestyle. Who knows, you may be the one that is selected to proudly represent your country as a torchbearer for the Vancouver 2010 Olympics. Live healthy, be active, and good luck!

Olympic Game?

Hey there. As most of know by now, the Olympic games are well into their second week and many competitions have been held and won. I love the games. I think it's because I'm so competitive that I want to see my country go out there and kick ass. Well, last night I was up watching the games, as I have been these past two weeks. On the local channel, I see the big name sports going on. Track & field and high diving, stuff like that. On the "Olympic" channel, I see the "Race Walk". WTF!?!?! That's right. Race Walk. I couldn't believe it. I've never heard of such a thing. Someone was going to get a gold medal for being able to walk real fast. It was the women's race and my first impression of it was, "Damn, they look like fish trying to walk on their back fin." I even got my wife up so she could see it.

I'm for diversity, I'm for great atheltic feats, but I'm not sure that power walking should be an olympic competition. There has been talk that baseball will be removed from the olympic games. Now, I'm not a baseball fan. I find it quite boring (to watch at least) but nevertheless, I recognize that it takes atheltic ability to be able to perform at a high level. Especially when you're up against the best in the world. And from what I hear, baseball will be removed as an olympic game starting with the next olympiad in London. C'mon on now. We are going to keep power walking but get rid of baseball??? Unless I'm missing something, that is stupid. Maybe the race walk is an age old tradition that has been around as long as the loympic flame. If it is, I can understand why you want to keep it around. But if it's not, it's got to go. Later.
