John can you PM me how much I owe you for the smoke and the chrome lenses? Any word on the black Eflexs?

I won't be able to make it Sunday - I have to help the gf move to her new apt since she helped me out quite a bit moving to Akron.

However, there are a couple things I would like to mention as a follow up after Event 2 now that everyone has had a few days to chill out after the two matches.

I think our first priorities as a team moving forward should be collective attitude and communication on and off the field during matches. I think we can all agree that winning each match was certainly within our reach as we parked and put our gear on to play. We all put a significant amount of effort and time into preparing for the Event, but chose to let our discomfort in being down points distract our ability to adapt and win. Based on my observations, I think the team owes a big thank you to Sean, Noah, Gengles, Justin S, Joel K and Tony for keeping relatively constructive attitudes throughout both matches.

In my opinion, we did not win a match on Sunday because did not have the overall attitude of a winning team. The majority blamed each other and focused solely on the problems at hand. Whereas, motivating each other and focusing on solutions would have been the more constructive approach. Winners do not blame or get down on others for losing. They take accountability and do whatever it takes to win the next breakout, 30 secs on the field, point, game or whatever.

We have all put a lot of time in together this summer, and everyone has shown improvement in many, many areas throughout the summer and I am glad to be a part of this team. The collective experience and skill we have is not something to take for granted. Our focus for the following practices and for the next event should be to not let our desire to win distract us from what it takes to do so.

Thats about all I have for feedback regarding the last event. A kind of inspirational email forwarded from my boss recently is copied below. Feel free to read if you're interested - it can be somewhat traslated to our team.

"Just about a month ago, after watching the LA Kings win the Stanley Cup, I wrote a piece on lessons to be learned about teamwork from the world of sports. This week, after being glued to my TV for 8 days watching the Tour de France, itís time to go that route again. By the way, whether youíre a bicycle enthusiast or not, watching the Tour is truly an exciting experience.

The race consists of 22 teams of 9 riders who race over 2000 miles divided into 21 stages. The race started in Belgium, went into France, Sunday they spent some time in Switzerland, and now the rest of the race will be back in France. There are flat stages, horrific mountain stages in the Alps and Pyrenees and individual time trails where each rider races against the clock.

Hereís the point I want to make. After a week of racing, 20 riders have already had to drop out of the race because of serious injuries. There have been many crashes, many broken bones, and several riders ended up in the hospital. Itís really a very dangerous event. Riders are traveling at over 25 miles an hour and when you crash and hit the ground at that speed, youíre lucky if you arenít seriously injured and in fact, many are.

Why does this happen? Because every one of the 198 riders is there to win, or assist a teammate in winning. The Tour is the biggest bicycle race in the world and winning is everything. But if youíre a rider, itís not enough that you want to win or your team to win. Every other rider has the same intention and after 21 stages, thereís only going to be one winner, and one stage winner each day. So each rider knows that he must take risks. This is not a race for the faint of heart. You have to get on your bike each day, ride full out, do everything in your power to win, and take the risks associated with that.

Can you already see the analogy to business? If you have a company, you too want to win. And youíre clear, or should be, that there are others playing the same game that you are and they too want to win. Sometimes, one winning means others losing. I have many clients that bid on projects against many others and only one bidder gets the job. Often, the game of business is not for the faint of heart. Those that win, and win consistently, are often the ones that approach the game the same way a rider in the Tour de France approaches each day on the bike. Meaning, Ö

They play full out, all the time, every day. They donít hold anything back. They donít allow fear to influence their decisions. They donít try and cut corners and get away with shortcuts. And the biggie: theyíre willing to take risks.

If you havenít yet figured this out, here are some basic facts of life and business. Life doesnít come with any guarantees. Life isnít fair. Good guys do finish last. Bad things do happen to good people. Thatís just the way it is. So if youíre complaining about any of those realities, itís time to stop. It will get you nowhere and just have you feel like a victim. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. Often you have little control of that. But what you do have control over is how you play the game. So spend some time watching the Tour and learn a lesson from those amazing athletes. Youíll see what it takes to be a winner.

Have a great week.Ē

Evidently I said at the Event that there was no practice. Don't remember but only had 3-4 that would be here. I am still going to get the layout up today so any help would be appreciated.

Sorry I didn't make the last practice. I tried to get out of work, but they just couldn't live without me. I wanted you guys to know I can't make the next event. If anyone didn't know my wife is pregnant and will be having the baby any day around this event. I'll keep practicing with the team and will send my maker up if you guys want it as a back up. Make sure to crush them. I don't want my season to be over!
