You got to Sleep to make your dreams come true !!!
… and dreams can come true if you sleep and sleep well.
Bring your “A” game to every game.
Ok you’re on a CHAMPIONSHIP ROLL …. KEEP IT GOING !!!!
Have you ever really paid attention to what people talk the most about? Just listen! The conversation will be about their diets or their sleep. We are so caught up in living life to it’s fullest, we deprive ourselves of the most precious element we require to sustain it!
Sleep….. It’s so abused.
It’s not the mattress or the pillow; it’s the quality of your sleep that matters. You need all stages of sleep especially REM. If you deprive yourself time to sleep or the aren’t getting “quality “ sleep it will spell disaster.
It is as important as the air you breathe and the food you eat. Maybe more.
We burn the candle at both ends everyday and do not realize the price we actually pay. Every time we don’t get the right amount of sleep we create a “ sleep debt” and the bigger the debt the more chance you’ll fall asleep when you least expect. Or at the least, not perform to your fullest! The tiniest fraction of a second could bring big trouble when you’re sleepy.
Athletes in the best physical shape can and do have poor sleep. I can only imagine the aches and pains you endure getting hit by a pitch or taking a foul ball off the foot. Not to mention the everyday grind of keeping in shape. How’s your blood pressure by the way? Hopefully you don’t snore ‘cause that could open up a bigger can of worms!!
Take little advise from someone whose job it is to get people their best sleep. Working in an accredited Sleep Disorders Center, I’ve seen just about everything. Believe me, the sleep habits of regular people are incredible!!! The pressures of championship athletes are unimaginable!
I’m rooting for our TIGERS all the way… this IS your year…
Hey Pudge… # 7 leads the way in ’07 !!! sounds good don’t you think ?
Lead the pack and bring it home!!
BLESS YOU BOYS…….save me a seat in October.
See you in my dreams !!!
There are sweet spots and then there are sweet spots… I always thought the " sweet spot" was the one in your heart, where you kept your inner most feelings about people you ‘re fond of but never wanted them to know. A place where you went and thought about things that never have a chance of happening but it was a catharsis and took you away for just moments . It made you feel good when things weren’t goin’ so good. I find my " sweet spot " filling up with TIGERS ! I’m lost when they have a night off! I worry about their well being, hoping everything is happy in their lives. Their worlds must be difficult even though it seems perfect. I’m sure thay live with the knowledge that good decisions have great consequences! Oh brother I sound like the team mom ! Well I actually could be to alot of them I guess. Here’s a reality for you… The ones I grew up with are pretty old and are probably great grandparents over and over. Well that makes me sound pretty old but… I’m not that old . As a matter of fact I have a pretty big birthday coming up next year…. can’t bring myself to saying which one but… the fact that it occurs on Good Friday seems like a sign… probably one of life’s biggest jokes on me, and not only that … but my anniversary is on Ash Wednesday !!!
What does that mean? It means I’m going to have alot of fun THIS year just in case! I just need to remember the good decision thing though …
sorry I drifted a bit…
Anywayz………… the other " sweet spot"…
I’m at work and one of my freinds and I start talking Tigers… he’s the ultimate baseball fan of all time. He has a "wall of balls" hundreds.. signed and protected . He goes to Lakeland every year ! WOW.. NOW I want to go… I could never match that collection but there are a number of balls I want to get signed! That brings me to the other sweet spot ! The one on the ball….. now how do I go about asking the THAT question ? Mr. Rodriquez… will you sign my sweet spot? I don’t think so… uh.. uh… How about Mr Rodriguez … will you sign my ball ‘s sweet spot? Can’t say that with a straight face. I guess it gets to sounding like everything other conversation at work . IN THE GUTTER …I want them to take me seriously. How about the line from the movie … Have you seen my baseball ? spoken with a lisp.. … nah… I’ll think of something … hopefully I will get a chance..
Duh… they already know you want it on the sweet spot right?
OK so …..
Hey …. this was quite a week huh ? Those silly birds … what were they thinking? The big cats of Detroit were pretty hungry … no choking on those feathers… And they did it with CLASS !! I now can say " the Sheff is IN " !!! His display of professionalism spoke volumes. He held his composure as no one else… And when the time was right… BOOM… the ultimate take that… In such a low key way. WOW !!! I loved it.. My apologies for holding out on you… "sweet spot"
The near fracus was exciting though … geeze Pudge … no hesitation there… got right in his face… I wish I could make all that out !!! Don’t get yourself hurt.
Zoom Zoom … Grilli .. holy **** ….. I didn’t know pitchers could run that fast !! Remember save your arm for pitching !!! and …. slow to anger….. just like the good book says….
Glad it all turned out so good. The icing was the " SWEEP" …. Now go get those Royals….
You all make me proud, can’t wait to get back to the park. (" sweet spot" )
Until then …see you on TV…
Well yesterday was interesting…. I didn’t get to watch the whole game and I was so anxious to see who won and who’s turn it was to shine… needless to say I was shocked… 11-3 ? Holy ****… what the ???
Then today I saw the highlights …. well I guess they were highlights ! I was glad to see Jimmy out there shouting expletives even though he knew he was going to get the boot… that makes the team rally… only the other team did the rallying
oh well that was yesterday…
Today is a new ballgame so to speak… who will shine today … that’s what so cool about this team… It’s truly a TEAM…. never a one man band.
Marcus …. what a wallop… I loved it..
Maggs…. keep it going … I”ll take care of your hair … (ask Rod and Mario)
Gary… the jury is still out but getting warmer…
Pudge… who cares… ( I guess a ground ball would of been a little better) but
You still ROCK…
Polonco… as always .. GREAT
Carlos… C-Mo… Curtis… the best !!!
then there’s Brandon…. thank you … today was your day… I just love to say … walk off !!! Take that you silly Twinns…
The team will make it a season… and I will watch it every step of the way… good and bad.
Thanks Jim… for making me feel like a part of something big…
OK .. I have to work at 0600… time for some sleep…
I’ll say a prayer for all of you and your families.
and…. Please drive carefully … there are people that you will never lay eyes on that would be devastated ……
Why is it that any negative behavior makes the headlines but an obviously genuine religious or faithful gesture goes without mention? As everyone can see Pudge crosses himself with EVERY pitch he gets, points to the skies in thanks EVERY time he reaches base AND scores a run. What a CLASS ACT. This should be recognized and commended frequently yet I never hear a mere mention ! What’s the deal? I can only bet that it’s because some one will have a canary and start a campaign to keep Jesus OUT of baseball too! With the unbelieveably horrific acts of violence going on today we should at least acknowledge alittle act of faith once in a while. Pudge will always be number one on my list for that reason alone. Pudge you ROCK !!!
