If You’re Having a Tough Day, Read Brian Wilson’s Quote And Watch Heather Dorniden’s 600m Race

Brian Wilson gets it.

“You can’t be a pro unless you dive in,” Wilson said. “You can’t just put one foot in and say, ‘Oh, well let’s just test this out.’ You’ve got to dive in and you’ve got to swim around in your dreams. You have to go for it.”

“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
— Martin Luther King Jr.

-Pete Ippel

Baseball and the Bandwagon

I went to the world series game last night, got a ticket stub from a guy that bailed in the 4th inning, it was a 175 dollar skybox seat. I couldn’t believe he was leaving. I tried to get in, but the bar code on my stub wouldn’t let me, and then I just watched the game from the foot bridge. Some other REAL fans and I cheered and sneered at the people leaving. We were hopeful for the 6 run rally in the 9th. Also a mentally challenged guy named John gave me an MLB pin, anonymous gifts are wonderful, and a drug dealer offered me to buy the I-Ride skateboard I built for 200 dollars. Of course I declined. Overall, a good night.
