Sometimes we can’t accomplish what we set our minds to do.
Sometimes impossible isn’t an illusion… it is real. Or, at least it seems real. We strive, we reach, we try – and we fall short, we stumble, we fall. We reach and try again. And fall and fail. We fall and fail and fail again. Or so it seems…
Sometimes the goal, whatever it is, seems too hard, too distant, too impossible. We say, “I can’t.” We say, “It’ll never happen.”
(The following passage comes from a draft of my original manuscript The Least Among Them which provides a unique history of the New York Yankees franchise.)
As football season is now upon us, I determined that it is worth sharing this passage that highlights the connections between the New York Yankees and professional football. These connections go back to the early days of both sports. While some of the players’ names in this passage will be familiar to sports enthusiasts, this essay includes the story of one of the least remembered New York sports legends of all time.
I greatly enjoy taking pictures on my visits to New York – The Greatest City in the World!
Occasionally, I’ll share a few of my favorite photos. I hope you enjoy them.
Sometimes the pictures I enjoy the most are the ones that didn’t seem to come out as planned. Yet, this picture, off center with a very overcast background, seems to really “work.” I really love this shot.
This picture, of the Statue of Liberty, was taken from a cruise ship in February 2014.
It is probably somewhat normal, even for adults, to have favorite sports figures that they root for. Baseball, football, and hockey players, tennis and golf stars, auto racers, and others come to mind. With that being said, there are probably few people who have a professional marathoner for whom they root.
I am one of those people. I am fan of Meb Keflezighi. He’s a champion marathoner.
