Friends, Saturday night while sitting in Baltimore Harbor celebrating the bicentennial of the penning of the Star Spangled Banner on a good friend’s boat, I was inspired to start today’s update by the “rockets’ red glare” and “the bombs bursting in air” from the massive fireworks display. On Sept. 14,…

Friends, It is a tough Monday given that I am still recovering from a fabulous SEJ conference in New Orleans and a weekend trip to central NY for college lax/FH recruiting visits for Hannah.  It was a lot of traveling, only made worse by the first-Monday-after-Labor-Day traffic!!!  ARGGH… Thank goodness…

Friends, Welcome Back, your dreams were your ticket out… Ooopps, slipped into the 70s John Sebastian classic Welcome Back Kotter theme  as I thought about school starting, Fall sports launching (Hannah scored her first goal of the field hockey season in already), the return of Football and Hockey and the…

Friends, We finally made it to August.  Time to take a breath.  I will say that traffic in DC was feeling the major effects of August recess – even with the African Leaders Summit in town.  Coming into DC from Annapolis at normal peak rush hour this morning was a…

Friends, It was great to catch the final early morning coverage of le Tour de France for this year’s race, won by Italy’s Vincenzo Nibali.  He dominated from stage 3 to win going away.  The completion of the most grueling event in sports will be minor though compared to the…

Friends, Amazingly, yesterday was the 45th anniversary of Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the Moon.  ”One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” was the lasting memory of the epic Apollo 11 flight that landed the first humans on the moon and safely returned them to Earth. Armstrong…

Friends, Well it was sure nice to slow down last week.  While I spent most of the sun-drenched week here in DC at a lax All-American showcase my daughter was playing in, it was nice to take a deep breath and not have to check my phone.  Better than me,…

Friends, I thought I’d do a quick update for you this week despite this being the holiday week.  While Friday, July 4th is the US independence Day, tomorrow July 1st is also Canada Day. For those of us who spent a large part of our younger days traveling from rink…

Friends, The Supreme Court ruled today on EPA’s tailoring rule. Our experts (Scott Segal, Jeff Holmstead and others) are digging into the details. They say that it is a mixed bag but clearly narrows the initial Mass v. EPA decision. Please call them directly for more. As well, Scott will…

Friends, Happy Father’s Day to all out there.  I hope it was a good day for you.  I spent my Father’s Day where else:  a lax tourney.  But yesterday, I was officiating rather than just watching Hannah.  I did make it home in time to watch Martin Kaymer cruise to…
