Sports on Strike

What’s the deal with athletes going on strike and owners locking up the doors to the arenas? Money, money, money!!! As the sports industry rakes in more billions of dollars every year, everyone wants a bigger piece of the pie. Whether the owners or the players win, the fans are the ones who definitely lose.

NIX the NHL

The 2012 NHL season is on hold and it doesn’t look like a start to the season is in sight. In fact, the commissioner of the league, Gary Bettman, is talking trash. He is saying that no matter how long the NHL stops play, the fans will be there whenever they resume play. Do you think he’s right?

So why is the NHL on hold you ask? It’s because the NHL made more money than ever last year, and the owners think they deserve a larger percentage of the profits.

NBA Blues

Last year, we all know that the NBA 2011-12 season was cut short 20 games. Was it really that bad? In the end, Lebron James won his first NBA title, but maybe there had been a full season, players with more endurance might have been able to stop his domination.

So is there a chance that we might not see an NHL season this year? Yes. In 2004, the NHL lost the entire season. The players and owners lost over 3 billion dollars and the fans got to save their money and spend more time doing their homework.

Do you have an old tire you could start off practicing with? It helps you align your hands. I find it kind of hard to explain, but there are lots of great resources out there online if you search for them. :) To do a cartwheel stand in a lunge with your favourite leg (by that I don't mean you look at it and say "that's a nice leg" but that you favor that leg when doing things, you feel comfortable with it going first), knees bent slightly, and your arms straight up by your ears. Make sure your elbows are locked. You don't want to drop. Assuming you start with your right, reach forward with your right arm while kicking your left leg up at the same time. Your left hand should follow very quickly and as it touches the ground your right leg should also be off of the ground. You should pass through the handstand briefly and your left leg should reach the ground first with your right following it and you will finish in a lunge just as you started. Hand, hand, foot, foot. 1,2,3,4. There's a rhythm to it. Keep practicing and try to perfect not kicking around as you go.
