Sports on Earth

I won’t claim that I’m going to start updating this site regularly… frankly, that seems like a bit of a longshot. Let’s just say it’s a goal. I wanted to offer a quick update, though, because I know people still stop by this place every once in a while.

For the last year (almost) I’ve been editing full-time and also writing over at Sports On Earth, a site from and USA Today that launched last August. Almost a year in, we still have a lot to improve and a lot of growing to do, but I’m really proud of the site overall. My writing can be found here, but there are a lot of excellent writers there, and I am happy to be consistently overshadowed. I’ve enjoyed editing very much, though I often feel karma is at work for the things I put my poor editors through back in the day.

I rarely get time for much else, though I am hoping to do a movie-related project soon. In the meantime I’m on Twitter more often than I should be.

    Regarding your “Is Softball Sexist” piece in the NYT, I have the same reaction I had years and years ago when I read something similar in The Atlantic Monthly (though the Atlantic piece was only about this single issue; your article references it but isn’t limited to this issue alone).

    Men and women both throw the ball instinctively the same way – i.e. they each throw from their center of gravity, because that is how you get the most power behind the ball. I don’t know if the rules of baseball allow underhanded pitching, but if it were permitted then women would be allowed to pitch “the same way” that men do (if you look at the physics of it) – from their center of gravity. Women not allowed to pitch underhand are at a disadvantage. Men playing softball also would be at a disadvantage if not allowed to pitch overhand. Women pitching overhand just to be ‘equal’ to men makes no sense; that is equality only examined at the most superficial level.

    A man’s center of gravity is in his chest. A woman’s center of gravity is in her hips. There’s an old bit of entertainment people used to indulge in in college. A woman would bend over, flat back, and lift a short stool. Then she’d challenge a man to do the same. He could not. He cannot. He never will be able to — without falling over, precisely because his center of gravity is in his chest. (FYI, if he can, he was born a woman and had an operation or just dresses the part).

    But yet there are differences besides different production form, that’s why, as
    in the case with Primobolan, there is a sense to consider the drugs apart.
    In such situations, personalized pain relievers are the
    solution to your problem.

    blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is
    that what you are using on your blog?

    By personalizing your message and targeting it to your likely buyers, you can send the message that your product is useful and necessary and that yoou care about your consumers.
    If you are in business, whether it be local or large-scale,
    and you are not on the nternet marketing association india (Delores), you are
    missing out on reaching most of ylur customers. “We sent
    email blasts along with approximately 5 newspaper ads totalling

  5. Good post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon everyday.
    It’s always helpful to read through articles from other authors and practice a little something from their web sites.

    May I just say what a comfort to discover someone that genuinely knows what
    they’re talking about online. You actually realize how
    to bring an issue to light and make it important.

    More and more people need to check this out and
    understand this side of the story. I was surprised you are not more
    popular because you certainly possess the gift.

  10. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy I found this during my hunt for something concerning this.

    About getting a call from Warren Buffett most individuals in business

    It happened at my buddy’s investment company, Third Avenue Management to my friend–or rather, an associate at work.

    10 years ago, this affiliate was concerned in regards
    to a planned offer produced with a business the corporation was invested in.
    He asked a string of sharp questions with the management team on a conference-call.
    Investors and additional experts were on the the phone call.
    And unbeknownst to everybody, therefore was Buffett.

    The associate was rung up by Buffett and left a
    voicemail following the the decision finished. At first, he believed it was a prank call.
    He later confirmed it absolutely was really the billionaire founder of
    Berkshire Hathaway who’d called to applaud him for some careful work on the
    business. Lesson learned: You will never know who is listening or watching what
    you do.

    I wasnot so fortunate. I needed to spend years attempting
    to get Buffett to speak if you ask me. That has been the requirement when I first joined Television–nab the primary meeting with
    him. And in my own pursuit to do this, I realized a few things on what is required to
    get anybody–actually the entire world’s next richest individual–to
    speak to you.
