Why You Should Throw Everyone Else’s Definition of ‘Success’ Out

If this Olympian cared too much about what others thought, she’d never have medaled When people talk about success, I always wonder what their definition is. Sure, criteria like celebrity, wealth and power come to mind. […]

It’s Never Love at First Draft

Why would anyone want to read the original manuscript of a young writer who subsequently wrote a world-renowned classic, except to trace the development of that writer? Why, upon reading it, would anyone ascribe meaning to that manuscript so as to diminish, question or require a re-thinking of the writer’s fabulously successful published work? […]

An Adventure to the Women’s World Cup – An Odyssey Worth the Effort

Damn! How could it be nearly 4pm, 3:55, and we were still not in the arena? My wife, Lynn, daughter, Sierra, and I had left our house over six hours earlier. More than enough time to reach BC Place, a mere 110 miles from our starting point. Ok, that didn’t count the […]

We Believe

Sun June 21 vs Phoenix @ Key Arena (Photo credit: Neil Enns) The defending champions came to town without Taurasi (sitting out 2015) and Griner (suspended 7 games). Not that we missed them much.

(she appears to be applying for her 2nd 6th Woman of the Year award.) […]

STORM GAME #5 vs CONN @ Key Arena 6-16

(Photo credit: Neil Enns) The two stories of this game were Abby’s Block Party and the questionable ref-fing (a favorite lament of any sports fan). Connecticut brought a 3-1 record with their newly re-vamped line-up, including Millie and Strick who were traded for Renee and KML. Very odd to see Millie in navy blue! And she still had the same moves and they still worked. She notched 12 points for the game. […]
