Tales From The Inbox - March 20, 2009

Carolina Dealin': It almost sounds like California dreaming but they're on the other side of the country and much less populated. I was contacted by this new blog about golf deals in the Carolinas. They've got stories about choosing a golf instructor and other golf content. It looks like they've just started up this month so give 'em a look if you're headed to Myrtle Beach or thinking of going.

Of course, once I said California dreaming the song stuck in my head and hence today's video.

A-Rod Loves Himself: If you don't believe it, just check out his new spread for Details magazine. The picture where he is kissing the mirror...ouch...

How To Look Like A Utah Jazz Dancer: Yes, I thought the title was interesting also. I received this link a week or so ago that is an interview with a few members of the Jazz dancers. They talk about their fitness routines and eating habits but not with great detail. I would have liked to see an actual workout routine example like what exercises they are really doing in the 30 or 40 minutes (Cardio? Weights?) or an actual meal plan. I really think this could have been a bit more informative about the actual fitness aspect of being on a dance squad as opposed to talking about hair, makeup, and tanning. I did like that one of the dancers said that they are encouraged to be athletic and not skinny.

i liked the story on the utah jazz dancers. it was interesting to me how the one woman said she is a full-time student and then comes to work. another said she has a full-time job. it made me think about their role a little differently. i'm assuming they are underpaid (especially considering what the nba players make), but they seem to really love what they are doing - at least that's what the story made it seem like.

yes, i was happy to hear them talk about being athletic vs. skinny.

Yeah, they are definitely underpaid and love what they do. Most of the NBA dance squads are filled with remarkable women that are students, mothers, and holders of other full-time commitments.

I wonder whats A Rod favorite Madonna song is? If I had to put money on it I say it was Justify My Love, and the reporter still found a way to slip it in. A Rod takes those pictures but he's worried other teams will rag him over his favorite Madonna song is, Really.

Yeah, really? Interesting priorities!
