Running with the Big Dog

Seabury Hall’s cross country team expected to have three runners in HHSAA top 20

Seabury’s #3 runner

This Seabury runner showed up at the recent Hawaii Prep cross country meet to finish sixth overall in a time of 22 minutes and 27 seconds.

Can you name her?    Here’s a few more clues:  She is Seabury Hall’s number 3 runner behind Dakota Grossman and Kiana Smith.
She finished 16th in the HHSAA championships last year, her junior year, and is expected to go higher this year when the championships are held on her home island.
If you guessed Gracie Peck give yourself a gold star and do an additional five miles during your workout today!
After all running is a reward and should always be FUN!

Say it ain’t so Joe – Joe Theisman on what it is to be a genius

Former Redskin star QB

You have to love former sports heros, especially when they are still in the publics eye. 

Football commentator and former player Joe Theismann:
“Nobody in football should be called a genius. A genius is a guy
Like Norman Einstein.”
Big Dog note: Say it ain’t so JOE.        Glad you’re not in the real world trying to make an honest buck, but you’re not alone.
Torrin Polk, University of Houston receiver, on his coach, John
Jenkins:  “He treat us like mens.  He let us wear earrings.”          BD note:  And he’s on scholarship – wonder what his SAT scores were like!
New Orleans Saint RB George Rogers when asked about the upcoming season:
“I want to rush for 1,000 or 1,500 yards, whichever comes first.”
