Tales From The Inbox - February 13, 2009

Thanks Katie: I had heard and written about the Nike GameChangers campaign before but Katie in NC was kind enough to alert me to today's video. Priceless. Athletic Women Blog also ran this earlier in the week.

The Back Nine: Did you ever wish you were a professional golfer? Jon Fitzgerald decided that he would chase that dream at age 40. He's even making a documentary about the journey. You can be a part of the film by making a donation. How much involvement depends on the donation.

NBA: The NBA All-Star Weekend starts today. I received a tidbit about the Slam Dunk Contest (my favorite event of the weekend) earlier this week:

Due to injury, J.R. Smith of the Denver Nuggets will be replacing Rudy Gay (left hip flexor strain) in the event this Saturday night. Fans can text in their votes or vote here to help choose this year's Sprite Slam Dunk Champion. For more info, see the official Sprite Slam Dunk page here. Watch NBA All-Star Saturday Night Feb. 14 On TNT To Decide Who Will Be The 2009 Sprite Slam Dunk Champion!
