The Hammer

Posted on

Watching curling as often as I do….once every 4 years…got me thinking about the importance of the hammer.  Having the hammer is having control.  Are we in control of what we’re doing?  Do we have the last say in what we do or who we become? 

Like curling, we’re going to, one day give up control of our destiny.  Maybe we’ll need other people to become involved in our life in order for us to succeed.  If so, don’t settle for one point.  Crush it!

I’d love to hear your thoughts about “holding the hammer.”

Tuesday in Toronto, Wednesday in Beijing

So, do you have Olympic fever? I’m trying to but with the 12 hour difference, it’s a little hard trying to follow what did happen and what might happen.

However, I do have some observations:

“Aqua-Man”, Michael Phelps has more gold medals than the country of Canada has total medals.

So does Zimbabwe, Kazakhstan, Vietnam, Togo, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Uzbekistan. Not combined. Individually! Amazing or crazy? Seems Canada is focusing on the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver/Whistler. Good luck.

You gotta be kidding me?! The Spanish Men’s Basketball team posed for this picture for the Olympics. What were they thinking? Is this some sort of weird Spanish humor that I just don’t get? Or is it just a case of bad judgment?

For those of you who follow the Toronto Raptors of the NBA, read what Jose Calderon had to say. This is not an indictment on the Spanish or Jose. However, it is a mistake that needs to be apologized for. The sooner, the better.

I wonder what will happen first: An apology or a medal. Your thought, as always, are welcome on the ORIGINAL POST.
