I recently read a book of inspirational quotes from John Wooden. The title of which is “Life Wisdom from Coach Wooden”. Really cool stuff, inspirational for anyone whether they be a sports fan or not. It is not difficult to see why Coach Wooden was so successful.
“This is my life’s most defining maxim: Success is peace of mind as a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming – in all areas of life.”

Florida State keeps on a going despite all of its off-field issues involving its players. The school has a weekly call-in show where not a peep is mentioned of the misbehavior of FSU players. It is amazing how some are willing to ignore bad behavior.
In all fairness, what Florida State has done on the field has been impressive. They are the defending National Champions and currently enjoy a 10-0 record. Yet, this should not excuse the bad behavior because like it or not these guys are still role models for children (especially in a football-mad state like Florida). Would any parent want their sons to be involved in sexual misconduct or domestic violence or any other type of criminal mischief?
It all comes down to priorities and sadly it seems that having a college football powerhouse is more important than anything else. Sad.
About time MLB All-Stars start to show some life. Samurai Japan has been dominating so far.
Watch as Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau goes deep to give the MLB All-Stars a 4-1 lead over Samurai Japan on Sunday night at the Tokyo Dome …
That helped the MLB team to roll to a 6-1 victory, avenging Saturday night’s no-hit defeat.
