Alex Honnold: Penalty For Error Is Certain Death

alexWhen I saw the 60 minutes special: "The Ascent of Alex Honnold," I couldn’t even fathom the thought of free solo climbing. I am not sure I could ever even dream of doing the climbs that were featured even if I could use ropes. Now, I am by no means a climber but I have done in-door and well… that seems hard (but FUN) to me. I can’t even imagine hanging from my fingertips with one false move leading to a quick, painful fall resulting in my death.
This seriously takes dedication, practice and focus. When this special dove into his life, it literally is all he does. He lives out of his van and goes after climb after climb.  

John Brantley's Moustache vs. LadyBallers Moustaches

I’m seriously itching to have the football season start. Does anyone feel like the days are just dragging and the universe is torturing us before it begins? Um…I do.

With only 9 days left before the first game of the season starts, I’m not going to discuss the college team rankings or which teams I think are going to be good or bad but I simply want to discuss John Brantley’s moustache.

The Beginning of Magic Domination

Wow! What a way to start Round 2 for the Orlando Magic!  With a dominating win over the Atlanta Hawks, 114-71, the Magic showed up and clearly had no mercy. I still haven’t wiped the smile off my face! 

I had the pleasure of going to the playoff game last night, and I have to say I witnessed a perfect synergy from our boys as the Amway Arena lit up again and again over dunks, hustle, rebounds, blocks, alley-oops, 3 pointers, etc. I feel like we are unstoppable!

How extreme are you?

A couple weeks ago, Colleen and I went ZIPLINING!!!  Well, if you want to get all technical, the pros call it "zipping," so I'll say Colleen and I went ZIPPING!!! We went to a place not too far from Orlando - Forever Florida. Our first set of unsecure, construction-like scaffolding stairs were 45 FT and it consisted of 3 zips. Our guides referred to this set as the “bunny slopes,” or for those of us who don’t ski – the BABY zips. I have to admit, I was pretty cocky before hand.

The official launch of the LadyBallers!

What started out as a basketball group on Twitter, our little endeavor has quickly turned into a social network and blog for the love of all things sports, healthy competition, and excitement. Females always get a negative wrap when participating in or discussing sports, so we, the LadyBallers, created this community - both for females AND males - who do not judge women who love to watch, talk, and participate in sports.
