A teenager in Utah is one of the stars of his basketball team and he lost the use of his right arm in an accident when he was a young boy. He now plays basketball and baseball--and plays both sports very well. Check him out:
Steep is a feature documentary about bold adventure, exquisite athleticism and the pursuit of a perfect moment on skis. It is the story of big mountain skiing, a sport that barely existed 35 years ago.
It started in the 1970s in the mountains above Chamonix, France, where skiers began to attempt ski descents so extreme that they appeared almost suicidal. Now, two generations later, some of the world's greatest skiers pursue the exhilaration of skiing and exploring big, wild, remote mountains.
This film was shot in Alaska, Wyoming, Canada, France and Iceland. Check out the beautiful views and incredible skiing:
I just found this video on Chris Fales' blog. Chris and I ran together for over 10 miles in this race. He's a great guy and personal trainer here in San Diego. Chris is seen towards the end of the video telling a story about an encounter with a snake. Right after that, I make my appearance as the last finisher of the day (over 15 hours!).
I found this posted on the blog, Zen and the Art of Triathlon.Anton Krupicka not only shares the same first name as me, but he has made a name for himself in the 100-mile distance ultra marathon scene.
I'll take inspiration in any shape or form, in this case, its shirtless:
Brittney Griner, a high school student from Houston, Texas, is no match for her competition. At just shy of 6'8", she recently played a game in which she was one assist away from a quadruple-double and dunked twice. And she wears men's size 18 shoes! I think she'll give Candice Parker a run for her money.
I just watched this video and had to hear what other people think about it. The team in red pulled the "Wrong Ball Coach" trick play and absolutely no one saw it coming. The center snaps the ball to the quarterback, who holds the ball up in the air as he yells "wrong ball coach...it's the wrong ball" and walks towards the sideline. Then you hear someone yell "GO" from the sideline and the quarterback turns and sprints all the way in for a touchdown. I hadn't seen this done before and am not sure if it's even legal or not, but since the center snapped the ball I think it should be.
What do you think? Is the play legal? Have you ever seen a team run the "Wrong Ball Coach" trick play or anything like it before?
