Rangers vs. Cardinals: World Series!

Hi, readers. I apologize for not blogging when I was supposed to over the past week, but hey, cut my some slack: I have been following the world series, as you all should be! It looks like this year, it will be quite the close series indeed.

Texas and the Cardinals have been going tic for tac, one blow to the next, in this contention for this season's baseball champion. It's great to watch these two teams play against each other in this World Series. Personally, though, I'm rooting for the Texas Rangers.

For one, they need a series win, and two, I used to work for them as a boy. Naturally, I have a soft spot for the team. Finally, the Cards' have already been there and done that with the World Series, so I say let a team like the Rangers get one!

Ending Season

After you look over your personal charts of what worked (and what didn't) from the current, ending season, we need to check out equipment to see if anything needs replacing before the start of the next season. It's important that you know where you stand with your equipment so that you aren't, as many say, caught with your pants down when the new season begins.

We also need to take a look at a few things like diet and work-out programs. Food-wise, I advise that you make a list for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and all other meals so that you can keep a record of your nutrition intake. Most important of the nutrition info to be recorded are calories, carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, all of which impact your weight, among other things.

The Finish to the Start

Well, baseball is coming to an end for the 2011 season, but it's really just starting. We still need to keep it going in so many ways, like working out in the gym and or on a field. For us older people that still think we can play the game (guys), we need to start teaching the next generation this great game called baseball.

First, let's start with the end of the season. I know, I know; you are saying, "Hey, I thought we were going to start at the beginning of the season...?" You're right, but I have to say this one thing first about the end of the season: even when you play your last game and lose or win, you need to start the other "new" season. You need to start by forgetting about the last season.

Second, conditioning. Really, this should be year round, but we need to look at what worked and what did not. Then, make a new chart for the new year and live by it.
