My sister Laura is riding the MS Bike Ride again this year in support of Multiple Sclerosis, the condition that afflicts our mom Claudia. If you're inclined and able, any donation would be greatly appreciate.

If I didn't say it in the last blog, Tiger Woods is frankly remarkable. Granted, he's physically gifted, but even when he's not at his best, he's so mentally strong that he can hang and hang and hang and just wear his opponents down until they finally make a mistake. Truly amazing.
On the other side of the US Open coin, Rocco Mediate really was a class act, and someone genuinely easy to root for. He's never had much of the spotlight, so from the TV I've never really had a chance to see much of him before, or know his personality. But after watching the last few days, it's clear that he's a true gentleman, and his positive and joyful attitude throughout the Open and even in his ultimate defeat in likely the biggest moment in his career is something we could all be proud to model ourselves after.
