"Sailing a boat calls for quick action, a blending of feeling with the wind and water as well as with the very heart and soul of the boat itself. Sailing teaches alertness and courage, and gives in return a joyousness and peace that but few sports afford." - George Matthew Adams

World Cup Champions

July 15, 2018 (196/365)

"The beauty of the World Cup is that while thirty-two countries get to cheer for their respective teams, the event also affirms a global pluralism - it is as much a festival of cultural multiplicity as it is a competition featuring some of the best athletes in the world." - Clint Smith #fiersdetrebleus ⚽️ 🇫🇷

French Friday: Bastille Days

 July 13, 2018 (194/365) « Ils ne font rien de plus que fêter chaque instant... » - Georges Moustaki

If you can't be in Paris for La Fête Nationale on Saturday or to watch France vs. Croatia in World Cup finals on Sunday (Allez les Bleus! #fiersdetrebleus), Milwaukee might be the next best place to be this weekend!

Play Ball!

August 2, 2016 (215/366) "Every day is a new opportunity. You can build on yesterday's success or put its failures behind and start over again. That's the way life is, with a new game every day, and that's the way baseball is."

Chase and the Germantown Diamond Club ball players had the awesome opportunity to play a game at Helfaer Field in the shadow of Miller Park this afternoon.

“And batting 8th for the Warhawks, #1 - Chase Larson!"

"... and the home of the brave!"

"1, 2, 3 - Go Hawks!"

Let's do this!

Chase in the dugout

"Now batting for the Warhawks, #1 - Chase Larson! Light it up!"

Rounding second...

Chase scores a run!

Warming up in the bullpen

"Now pitching for the Warhawks, #1 - Chase Larson!"

The wind-up and the pitch...

Strike!

Louis Vuitton Cup in Chicago

June 12, 2016 (164/366)

“That’s the great thing about sport and life: If it’s not over, if they haven’t handed the trophy over, you still have a shot.”- Jimmy Spithill, Skipper - Oracle Team USA

What a great day for the America's Cup World Series in Chicago!

It's the first time an America's Cup race has ever been sailed in fresh water!

What a thrill to see teams from the USA, New Zealand, the UK, Sweden, France, and Japan.

My three favorites!

It wasn't Team USA's day, but it was so fun to watch.

Pardon the fuzzy iPhone photos. 

It has nothing to do with the Champagne ;)
