ODDS AND ENDS

Howdy…

I’ve got some things to catch up on today, so sit back and enjoy the ride.

First, congratulations to the San Francisco Giants for winning the 2010 World Series.  I’m very happy for my colleagues with the Giants media relations department as well as for guys like Freddy Sanchez, Bruce Bochy and Buster Posey; just to name a few. 

Oh and if you don’t think the Reds weren’t represented at this year’s Fall Classic, think again…

Check out Reds media relations director (and my boss) Rob Butcher on the far right getting some TV time.  As he does every year, Rob worked the World Series on behalf of Major League Baseball…similar to what Larry Herms and I usually do for MLB during the NLCS.

I’m behind on posting some of the Halloween photos that I received over the weekend.  Let’s take a look…

BETTER OFF RED FIT CLUB UPDATE:

In my quest to lose 35 pounds by February 1, 2011…I’m happy to report that I have “just” 33 pounds to go.  Yesterday’s weigh-in saw 2 pounds deducted from my original weight of 197.  I must admit, I’m no stranger to 195.  It was my batting average in Little League. 

My BOR Fit Club workout today is dedicated to Twitter follower @laurie_PDX who has dropped 9 pounds since the fit club’s start!  Follow her and see what she’s doing to lead a healthier lifestyle.

If you’d like me to dedicate a workout to you, follow me on Twitter at Jamieblog and keep an eye on the hashtag “BORFitClub.”

I’m very proud of you folks in the Fit Club who are getting healthy.  The emails and Tweets I’ve been receiving have been amazing.  @BradsC6 has dropped a total of 9 pounds since we started… @KJKnapp123 has lost 5 pounds…. @geoffglaab has lost 8 pounds… @Buckeyecari is down 3.6 pounds… and get this – @meatballeiler has lost 17 pounds!!  

And it’s not just the folks losing weight making me proud.  I’m getting lots of emails and Tweets from people participating in the BOR Fit Club who are exercising more, running, lifting weights and eating healthier.  Those of you who are putting forth a conscious effort to better yourself, YOU’RE AWESOME!  Keep it up!
