Ice climbing can absolutely be done by kids! As long as its done in a safe setting with people that know what they are doing. My daughter is only one, but my husband and I are already figuring out what gear we need to take her in a few years. San Juan Mountain guides starts kids at 8 in their kids climbing college. I have seen 5 year olds ice climb and do a great job. Sure, you can't be a couch potato and just go out there and do it, but it is fun and great for kids of all ages.

I don't know what is wrong with these teams. Former Colt's Head Coach, Tony Dungy, said that he wouldn't wan Sam because of the attention he was bringing. I just don't get it. I heard that his stats were amazing. A player should not be cut because of their orientation but because of their attitude or extremely poor skill. Why can't they just let him do what he loves to do, play football on a team that wants him.

The Cowboys have cut Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted in the NFL, from the team. Is this an expression of the conformity policy so deeply rooted in American athletics?
