Fed up that the federal shutdown was keeping them off their practice fields, a group of young lacrosse players in Northern Virginia challenged the government in court. And at least for now, they won.
Today’s message is brought to you by Trevor Tierney, and it reminds parents everywhere how to be great spectators and supporters at youth sporting events.
Good morning! If you have no faith, you’ve lost your battle. – Bill Cosby
Good morning, ladies and gentlemen! As we get older, we tend to move from relying on the advice of others to seeking the opinions of others. We make decisions based on sifting through the the information that we gather from a variety of sources, and then figuring out whether or not it is in line with what we already believe. How many times have we heard that we should “always go with our gut?” There’s a lot to be said for…
Happy Friday, ladies and gentlemen! Unfortunately we don’t always control the environment that we are in at the moment, the goings on of that environment, or the people in the environment. We only control the way we react to or handle our environment. Fortunately none of these things is permanent. Eventually we’ll leave the environment. Whatever is going on will stop. Whoever is there will depart. No matter the storm, however, we are built to weather it. We are designed…
Small disciplines repeated with consistency every day lead to great achievements gained slowly over time. – John C. Maxwell
Some people require more praise than others. – 8,789 Words of Wisdom
Good morning! A friend of mine passed these two quotes on to me, a month apart almost to the day. Interestingly enough they fit together nicely.
When I was a freshman in high school, I tried out for the varsity basketball team. Just before our first scrimmage two of the upperclassmen got into some kind of trouble and weren’t going to be allowed to compete.
Happy Friday! Last night I watched a high school football game. It was a game. I’m not sure that I could call it a competition since it wasn’t very competitive. Although … as in most sports, there are little competitions inside the game. In lacrosse, who wins the ground ball battles? In basketball, who wins the rebounding battles? There’s also competition to see who plays with the most energy and enthusiasm.
Good morning! Today’s Words of Wisdom are from an article I came across earlier this week, titled “12 Ways to Accomplish More by Doing Less.” We all, at some point, feel that we are doing too much. Sometimes it’s by default, because we have a lot on our plates. Sometimes it’s our own fault, because we haven’t realized that saying “NO” is OK. At any rate, this article offers some great suggestions as to how to be more productive. The…
Did you miss The Medicine Game on TV this week? Maybe it wasn’t showing in your neck of the woods, or you couldn’t find it, or you just missed it, and now you’re kicking yourself… well, stop it, because now you can watch the FULL feature film online thanks to PBS!
Are we a lacrosse site? Sure, we are! But that doesn’t mean we can’t share things that strike us amazing, and the video above certainly qualifies. Demetrius de Moors obviously didn’t read our Hot Pot post this morning, but he’s a shining example of what Connor was talking about.
Success in life is all about finding an opportunity, and then pushing that chance to the limit with honest dedication and passion. Shortcuts and divergent paths are always present, and staying on the straight and narrow is a constant battle in our society. Keeping your sights set on the bigger picture is easier said than done, but it’s still the best way that I know to make good on your lot in life.
“If you stop learning today, you stop leading tomorrow.”- Howard Hendricks None of us needs to know everything about everything. But chances are we do need to know everything about something, and it’s probably to our benefit to know something about a lot of things.
The Medicine Game promises to be entertaining as the story is a good one, but I think many people will also find it eye-opening and educational, and this latter part pushed me to try to learn more before seeing the film tonight on TV. I was lucky enough to catch up with the film’s Writer, Jason Halpin, as well as the film’s Director, Luke Korver, via email, and they answered some pressing questions for us…
Good morning! MOTIVATION MONDAY Yesterday’s church service, was not one of my favorites. But the message was solid. It was about embracing change, and allowing change to open us up to the blessings in store for us. Ironically, as I pulled out of the parking lot, the first song that came on the radio was Kirk Franklin’s “Today.” The first verse starts as follows:
Good evening! Hopefully the start of the weekend is greeting you at the end of a productive and positive week. Most of us are probably thrilled that the weekend is here. I know I have things that I need to get accomplished this weekend, but 2 of the most important things that I make time for every weekend – sometimes not enough time – are relaxing and organizing my life.
SD Navy Gold is a club team in the Southern California Men’s Post-Collegiate League (SCLAX) that is dedicated to “Making lacrosse play possible and affordable for San Diego County Sailors and Marines.” After Monday’s tragic events in Washington, D.C., the team tweeted the following.
