Go on a diet! You could join one of those weight loss clubs with an expensive meal plan, or starve yourself on a fad diet. Just quit eating anything that isn’t whole grain or green. Join a gym! Start exercising like mad and see how long it takes to drop the weight.

Those infomercials were hilarious - it was on again Friday night during the all-around finals on Universal Sports TV. Reminded me of the comedy infomercials during the Dancing With The Stars show Monday, the Bruno dance video and rubber steps that can teach you how to dance and you can also use as salad scoopers...of course difference is that the DWTS was meant to be funny.

Coming from someone who knows the intimate details of how USA Swimming protects it's athletes, let me say that they are doing everything within their legal capacity to prevent this sort of thing. USA Swimming has had a background check system in place for several years now.

Aluminum/metal bats have been banned for the rest of this year's baseball season in the Marin Athletic League by a unanimous vote. The aim is to give the players in the field more time to cover their face and get a glove ready for the ball - balls jump off much faster off a metal bat than a wooden bat. The move has come from three parents of high school baseball players, referring to the Match 11[ Read More... ]

This is definitely true. Of course, massages are incredibly expensive - but they do make a big difference when you are training hard. Hint: go to a massage school to get a massage from a student in training. They are usually about $30 instead of $100+
