If you think you are beaten, you are. If you think you dare not, you don't. If you'd like to win but think you can't, It's almost certain you won't. Life's battles don't always go To the stronger or faster man, But sooner or later, the man who wins Is the man who thinks he can. (Walter D. Wintle)
First a New Hampshire Yankee now Maine chimes in! The world turned upside down! When I was 3 there was thought of moving back to the ancestral area just outside Boston so I could have grown up *shudder* one of them.
Welcome EASTENDCLAM - glad to have you here! I am a co-leader as well and am a Maine native. I have always been a rabid Yankees fan - from birth! - to the chagrin of my family. But I have brought up my 4 kids to be as rabid as I - and only one of them has turned to the dark side. Love your enthusiasm - would love to catch that "other" team!
Thanks MAREANNIE and RD. I have to say RD, that's an interesting combination, leader of both Yankees and New Hampshire Sparkers. I spent some time in Raymond in the time of Jim Rice (hey, credit where credit is due, a great player) and it was sooo Sox. Have a bumper sticker or did it get rear-ended off (laughing).
Pretty quiet Hot Stove League so far, it'll heat up shortly.
edit for Spel Chek!

... the MLB leaderboards and saw that BoSox were 1 and Yanks 2. This can't be. I'm joining. I'm shooting for 2500 minutes a month this year, and I'm dragging those minutes, kicking and screaming, with me. Yes, they have 900+ members to our 500+. They're averaging 38 minutes per member so far this month, we're averaging 56. We're already outworking them soooo, based on Jan numbers as of today, if we all add 10 minutes per month for Feb, 2.5 minutes per week, we're back where we belong, #1.
Me? I became aware of Baseball in that odd period of time when there was no NL team in NY. Yeah, Yaz grew up in the town across the bay from me but, c'mon, let's get real here. I'm a lefty, Whitey Ford was my hero. February I'll hit 24 months of maintaining my old playing weight after losing 55 through portion control (my problem, I never ate a lot of junk), a lot of cardio and some weight training.
