When I’m not at the ballpark, you can often find me here … in my Yoga studio in Orange, Virginia. (Sorry, still haven’t figured out how to take a selfie.)
As I began my fifth year of “bloggessing” yesterday, the Baltimore Orioles finished their three-game sweep of the Cleveland Indians, ensuring one more night of sweet dreams atop the AL East.
Look! It’s the Orioles!
Stay with me. This Bloggess Public Service Announcement will take only a few seconds of your time …
Yesterday. Orioles and Indians. Bottom of the 9th Tied at 3.
One man on base, two outs. Orioles outfielder Nolan Reimold comes in to pinch hit. Yes, the O’s were pinning their hopes on someone who hadn’t even played that day. He doesn’t get many chances to play at all, really.
And, this happened …
Two-run walk-off home run.
Game over. Orioles win.
How can a player come in, tamp down the stress, focus, and crush a baseball like that?
Let Nolan’s wife Jenny explain:
The moral of the story ….
Yoga cannot guarantee that you will hit a walk-off home run for your team. But, if Yoga helps Nolan Reimold perform at the highest level … along with scores of other big leaguers who rely on Yoga every day to keep them strong, toned, mentally focused, steady, and flexible … imagine what it could do for you.
If you’ve got an hour, I’ve got the mats. (And, if you’re not nearby, I’m sure there’s a Yoga studio near you … and they’ll have a mat you can borrow.)
