How NOT to Slide in 3rd Base by Ian Kinsler

Baseball is the all-american sport. Its was we call a Past-time. Many of you grew up watching baseball with your father, throwing the ball in your backyard with your dad or on the field with your friends. Many of you played in the little leagues and have great memories of growing up and learning this Great All-American Sport, known as baseball. Unfortunately, many of you didn't go past High-school or College baseball, let alone make it to the big timers. In some cases, that may have been a good thing as sometimes, its best to just quit while your ahead. One example of this can be seen here by our good friend Ian Kinsler of the Texas Rangers. Sometimes its better to just slow it down a bit before hitting the brakes. We wonder if he's every heard of the term, “Your coming in too Hot”?

      1. Kinsler Running into 3rd Base for the slider…………… OPS!
      2. A better view of How fast he was Running
      3. Slow-Motion Face shot! You gotta love his Reaction
      4. His Coach approving of his Slide… Good Job son!
      5. Dont worry, He didn't forget to touch the base and stay put (or shall we say stay Foot)

 

 

All in a days work people. This is how Mr. Kinsler represents and teaches everyone how to Run into 3rd Base like a PRO. Follow his lead and you'll be sure to come to a complete stop…. (Right after 3rd base). Dont forget to keet your hand/foot planted on that base!

Mike Vick Feeling Lucky To Have a 2nd Chance

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick recently took some time out of his day to speak with students at Martin Luther King High School about how he’s turned his life around since spending 18 months in prison for his involvement in dog-fighting–providing them with advice on how to avoid the troubled life he used to live.

The Associated Press reported how Vick discussed numerous topics with the students about his journey back to the NFL after spending 18 months in prison – with the topics ranging from dog-fighting to how he believes there’s still plenty of work left when it comes to changing his life around. However, nothing may have been more important than when Vick told the students how difficult it was to avoid hanging out with old friends.

“Getting away from all the people that I was used to being around every day, that I thought had general love for me (was tough),” Vick told the students on Thursday. “The hardest decision was just dedicating my life to change.”

As everyone knows, Vick pleaded guilty to conspiracy of dogfighting back in 2007 and has done everything in his power to turn his life around since then. Vick joined the Eagles prior to the 2009 season and played a major role in helping the team win the NFC East title last season after taking over the starting job at quarterback for Kevin Kolb–who suffered a concussion against the Green Bay Packers. Vick has come a long way and we congratulate him on taking the right steps in the right direction to make his life better.
