Watching the Art of the Young Athlete It All Starts with Heart Last weekend , I was lucky enough to attend a Little League baseball game , a really eye-opening experience where I was able to see the true value of passion and persistence , through the actions of a group of ten year old boys . One team was undefeated , the Rockies , and along with the team came bleachers

full of loud and proudparents and on the field nimble and quick athletes . The history and reputation of both the teams were explained to me before I arrived at the park , so I thought I knew what to expect , but I was absolutely wrong . The opposing team , the Dodgers , were rumored to be a Bad News Bears ' type of squad with only a handful of wins throughout their season , which was nearly over The Rockies , howeverwere said to be like a Major League franchise that hovered over all the other teams , as a sorry reminder of what they would never be . Of course , I expected a slaughter . I pictured crying young kids in the dugout and disappointed parents dragging the poor little guys home . On the other side I expected to see gloating and a disgusting display of Social Darwinism in the kingdom of sports . I amso glad that I was wrong , it really didn 't go that way at all
The Rockies coach was a Mike Ditka type , who tried to rule the field with fear of failure . His boys were scared to lose , because of his no-nonsense competitiveness that surprised me at this level of playing The Dodgers coach , however , was more of a Tony Dungy type , quiet and reserved with an air of stoicism and commandingrespect . He wanted his team to have fun and to want to win , period . He realized that fundamentally , you can scare away skill from kids if you require it Instead he understood the most important part of the game and that is heart . Playing because you love the game and want to win and are not afraid of losing is that key ingredient that took some time to mix with this team . I imagine if they had alonger season they would have won more games , as what I saw amazed me . While the Rockies made error after error in fear of losing to this lesser ' team , the Dodgers just gave it all they had and had a great time doing it . There was no crying and no gloating and it wasn 't even close to a slaughter . The Dodgers lost by only two runs and gave the towering Rockies a run for their money . Theywould have won too if it wasn 't for that fact that one poor kid tripped over third base and got out at home , leaving the winning run back on second base . Yes , that...

Billy Joel Concert at the Hot Rock
We arrived at the concert tickets courtesy of keyboardist El Tri, who kindly lightened stratospheric paying the $ 250.00 that allowed access to the event. A cap, or who would run it. And afterus a delicious dinner we went to the meeting point.
In llegandito (tell a friend) could "enjoy" the strange rhythms that a type (along with other 4) emanated as a declaration of war against good taste, and worse, the health of my ears. After inquiring we learned that the name was Big Metra Disheveled and that his was the reggaeton (or as they write). I have always been careful to run away withoutshame these aberrations, but that there was no pa 'nowhere to run, unless I was swimming offshore. Best advantage to form us in the only stand willing to sell fresh water in the region. Already after a few minutes I found the only grace of the aforementioned Metra: danced hostesses girls beer sponsor of the event. That's all thank you.
An intermediate, another queue formed in the waters and setof fireworks gave way to another big unknown to me: Naomi. Only here the good taste and sanity if you were away (maybe not close some Bay) by the girl singer was anything but. Mixing hip-hop, reggae, rap, dance and punchis punchis-cheap, the girl made me remember the music disposable C + C Music Factory, Calo, New Kids on the Block et al. Fortunately he did not stay long on the stage, but a...
