It’s race day for 2WC, so we’re going to keep this short. It was 12 weeks ago tomorrow this training journey and today, we rock it out.
Good luck to all of our friends and family who are also racing and congratulations to those completing their first half-marathon today (regular 2WC commenter, OMC, among them). Read the rest of this entry
It’s a beautiful autumn Saturday, so I’m going to keep this short and sweet.
The Cardinals are going to the World Series!!!
Yes, the St. Louis Cardinals have won their fourth pennant in 10 years. It may not matter much to the non-sports fans or the bitter baseball fans out there. But to Cardinal Nation, this is validation of what we’ve always known — we’re number 1!
Here’s to a great series, and to our yet to be determined opponent — you’re going down.
Let’s Go Cards!

…just for fun:
It’s the first Sunday of the NFL season and that means one thing for devoted football fans: optimism.
At this point in the season we all are no better or worse than any other team. Aside from those that played on Thursday, of course…and the five completed games today.
But that still means most of us have a better record than Baltimore, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Carolina and Oakland. And we’re only one win away from tying for first place (with half the league).
Cherish this moment fans.
At this moment we all have just as good a chance at having a good season as any other team. This could be the year we return to our former (or current) glory, or crash and burn.
We could be triumphant! We could go all the way!
Maybe we’re getting a little carried away. We’ll get back to you at half-time. But for now…Let’s Go Rams!
Yesterday was a sad day for baseball. 12 players were suspended for the rest of the season, and one, Alex Rodriguez, might not step foot on a baseball diamond until after the 2014 season.
This comes on the heals of Milwaukee’s Ryan Braun’s season ending suspension. For those of you keeping score, that’s 14 players.
Perhaps the saddest part, is the knowledge that this number is (most likely) just a small fraction of the current players who are using or have used performance enhancing drugs to give themselves a competitive edge.
The world of sports has been by no means immune to the advancements in technology. Games that use to rely solely on the eye and judgment of a few trusted (I use the term loosely) officials, now extend ever on into eternity as instant replay has caused us to not only question their authority, but establish rules that require them to question their own rulings.
Challenges, you are a blessing and a curse. Of course, the instant replay is far from precise. The cameras only have so many angles and none of them are precisely from that of the referee…until now. Read the rest of this entry
