Congrats Ryno!

The familia & I took a short vacation last week (let's use that as the reason why this blog was so quiet, ok?) to the LA-Anaheim area. So it was sometime late in the day on Friday that I found out that my favorite baseball player, Ryne Sandberg, was named interim manager of the Phillies. It took until Sunday for him to notch his first win as a manager and Monday was win number 2!

As a Cubs fan, my heart broke when the Cubs didn't give Ryno a chance to manage. Heck, even seriously consider him as the manager! It broke even more when he was welcomed in Philadelphia and just knew that he would be manager one day. Am I a Phillies fan now? Nope. But I will be rooting for Ryno to turn the team around and a world of success. Now to get me some tickets for the homestand at Wrigley.

Yeah, that wasn't cool that he wasn't even considered. I have always liked Ryno, playing and coaching. I thought he would be good and I'm not a Cubs fan!

Maybe he will considered down the road when the Cubs can't afford him because the Phillies go all the way (smile).

Book Review: Wolfpack by Abby Wambach

Less than a year ago, Abby Wambach took the stage at Barnard's commencement and gave a speech that shook many, including myself, to the core . Her speech went viral and I made the above image in order to share the highlights of her speech. Earlier this month Abby released the speech in book form. Wolfpack : How to Come Together, Unleash Our Power, and Change the Game is short (less than 100 pages) but is much more than just her speech . You get a peek into how the speech came together and why she said everything. And because the book is short and is an expanded speech, it moves quickly. I feel that it moves with the same ferocity that Abby use to move down a soccer field. And you might find yourself cheering as she takes you through the story. Abby has always been one of my favorite players. The way she ran amok on the pitch was exactly the way I felt I played sports. Never caring how you looked and giving it your all. Leaving it all on the field. When she retired from socc
