MY TOP 3 Michael Jordan Commercials


Here it is.  My top favorite MJ commercials.  Starting with...




#4 Just incase you liked all three.



I've gone to more weddings in the past two months than I have my whole life.  Better learn keep this handy for future reference.

Attention all Bulls and Blackhawks fans!!!



This year the United Center has brought something new to the 2009-2010 NBA season.  

"Madhouse on Madison" is the latest news of the renovated 300 Level seats which now includes 144 LCD screens from LG, new food, new beverages, and many more reasons you should attend a Bulls game this year!  Read more here.

Still though I think I would much rather have courtside seats.  I can't begin to explain my love for the game and the Bulls.  So many great years were spent in front of the television set watching Jordan just rip up players on the court.  Just watching Jordan and the Bulls play taught me how to win in my own current life situations.  And I'm not exactly sure how you can repay someone for teaching something like that but I will find a way someday.  



Although Tiger is my boy, I have to give it up to my man 양용은 (otherwise known as Yong-Eun Yang or Y.E. Yang)  Congratulations to him.  He really made some spectacular shots on the back nine at Hazeltine which in turn led to his three stroke win over Tiger Woods to lock his first PGA Championship.  (Tiger was 14-0 when leading up to the final round).  Some golf experts may call the South Korean golfer a fluke but trust me when I say that South Koreans KNOW their golf.  The golf buzz in Korea is equivalent to the basketball buzz going on in China.  Golf in Korea is the yoga to India.  Okay well that might be a bit of a stretch seeing as how Yoga originated from India nearly 26,000 years ago but you get the point.  Winning the PGA Championship has secured Y.E. Yang 5 guaranteed years on tour.  Not bad for a farmer's son who picked up golf at 19.  Not a bad way to enter your forties either.  I guess I still have hope.

8 Best Foods for Fitness


Here is a condensed health article that might be useful for anyone. 

"Fitness foods that help burn fat, build muscle and boost your cardiovascular health. (MSN) 

It's true: Spinach is muscle fuel. But not

 because it instantly turns you lean and sexy. Researchers from Rutger

s University found that a compound in the leafy green increases protein

 synthesis by 120 percent, helping your muscle tissue to repair itse

lf faster after you work out. The problem, howev

er, is that you’d have t

o eat Popeye-sized quantities to experiences dramatic results (we’

re talking almost 2 pounds of the iron-packed veggie

s a day). The good news is that spinach isn’t the only food that can help you to look and feel better than ever—even when you're not exercising.

The right fitness foods help burn fat, build muscle, and even boost your cardiovascular health. Ready to eat your way to better results? These 8 great foods and drinks are guaranteed to make any type of exercise you do more effective—long after you’
ve broken a sweat.


Pineapple and papaya

Good for: Muscle recovery

Both of these tropical fruits are loaded with
bromelain and papain, enzymes that not only help break down proteins for digestion but also have anti-inflammatory properties to speed up your post-workout recovery.


Good for: Cardiovascular fitness

Australian researchers found that cyclists who took fish oil for 8 weeks had lower heart rates and consumed less oxygen during intense bicycling than a control group did. The fatty acids in fish oil need to become incorporated into muscle and heart cells to have an effect, and that takes weeks of consumption—so either take fish oil pills each day, or try to eat fish rich in fatty acids multiple times a week to see similar results.

PB&J or pasta with meat sauce
Good for: Muscle building and repair

The perfect post-weight training repast has about 400 calories, with 20 to 30 grams of protein (to build new muscle) and 50 to 65 grams of carbohydrates (to repair old muscle). Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or a small bowl of pasta with meat sauce fits that formula.

Pork tenderloin

Good for: Waist-trimming

Lean meats are a great low-calorie source of protein, and scientists at
McMaster University in Hamilton (Shoutout to Cecilia), Ontario, found that eating more protein may reduce the fat around your midsection. People who ate 20 more grams of protein every day than the group average had 6 percent lower waist-to-hip ratios.


Good for: Pain relief

University of Georgia scientists revealed that taking a caffeine supplement (equal to two cups of coffee) after exercise reduces muscle soreness more than pain relievers can. Caffeine blocks a chemical that activates pain receptors.

Cold water

Good for: Endurance

Drinking cold water before and during exercise can help improve your endurance. In a British study, cyclists who drank about 30 ounces of a chilled drink in the half hour before riding in a hot, humid environment—and smaller amounts as they rode—were able to bike 23 percent longer than riders who downed lukewarm liquids. Drinking cold water may be the most direct way to reduce core body temperature, so it takes you longer to heat up and slow down.

8 ounces of chocolate milk

Good for: Hydration

The best sports drink may come from a cow. British researchers found that milk does a better job than water or sports drinks at
rehydrating the body after exercise. Why? To begin with, milk has more electrolytes and potassium. The addition of chocolate gives milk the perfect balance of carbs, protein, and fat for speedy muscle recovery.

Green tea

Good for: Muscle recovery

Brazilian scientists found that participants who consumed three cups of green tea every day for a week had fewer markers of the cell damage caused by resistance to exercise. So drinking a few cups every day may help your muscles recover faster after an intense workout."

Bill, you are the man!

After attending the Chicago Vigil for Laura Ling and Euna Lee a couple months back, I was glued to CNN to see what would happen to these two Asian-American Journalists.  Things didn't look good when they both received 12 years of hard labor by North Korea.

Thanks to Bill Clinton, the Ling and Lee family can finally rest at ease.
