Julian Valentin’s Column, Friday, September 19th, 2008

Looking Back & Looking Ahead I’m going to reserve the right to not talk about this past weekend’s game against Kansas City.  I just don’t feel like writing about it and I have full autonomy here so I’m not going to.  Everyone knows that we haven’t won in a while so it’s not worth beating […]

Welcome folks. In a very untimely fashion my computer charger has broken and I cannot offer a new article this week. The part of the power cord that plugs into the computer just ripped off and and I had to order a new one from the IBM website. Hopefully it will be here in time […]

Looking Back & Looking Ahead With the bye-week, there is no match to look back at.  We had a number of hard training sessions and tough fitness and weight work after training.  We definitely took full advantage of the preparation week and pushed ourselves to the limit. Make sure to tune into ESPN 2 at […]
