Remember the vid of the Div. III dunker Jacob Tucker that the NCAA first told that he couldn’t participate in the dunk contest? (http://blog.legrandcru.us/2011/03/09/jacob-tucker/) Well, he ended up winning the competition. Here are his dunks:
Were those winning worthy? I thought they were great dunks, but I wish he made the first ones he attempted.
Guard at Division III Illinois College. 5’11”. All that doesn’t mean anything when this guy dunks. Jacob Tucker asked to participate in a dunk contest and was told that “Division III players typically lack the notoriety needed to receive an invitation.” So he made a video:
NO one is as graceful as Kilian on a deck, snap, its like he’s ice skating on pavement.
This is really cool, even though my legs cringe after every scene.

So I have been able to get my hands on some tickets for the Clippers vs Thunder game on November 3, 2010 in Los Angeles. Two very exciting players battling it out head-to-head. Blake Griffin is looking like a monster, and hopefully he can stay away from any injury. Kevin Durant was a killer for team USA and continues this season as a force to be reckoned with.

A few weeks ago, my brother-in-law asked me to help take part and volunteer in an event called AMPSURF. Now, I know nothing about surfing, but was assured that it was not necessary. I was on the fence because I knew it was going to be early in the cold Central California waters, but finally I committed and was I grateful that I did.
AMPSURF is a non-profit organization dedicated to veterans, adults, and children and helping them concentrate on their abilities rather than their disabilities by taking them out onto the open waters and onto a surfboard. For the last 8 years they have been putting on these surf clinics and just having a great time.
I was in such awe with the strength and determination of every individual and it was amazing to see how well everyone did. I was able to help a lady with only one leg, and she stood completely up and rode a whole wave in!
I know that sometimes we tend to forget how blessed we are and take a lot of things for granted. I encourage everyone to go out there and take part and share your time in events like these. It definitely helps put things in perspective and helps me remember that there a lot of things more important than just myself.

Thanks Jodie for the pics!
I know it just passed, but I don’t think the sharks care. This kayaker calmly films a Great White swimming around him. Yikes.
