Abundant life! What does that mean? Well, abundant life is a life that is not in need. You don't need to find food, you have it. You don't need to find water, you have it. You don't need to find a place to live, you live somewhere. You don't need to find a job, you have a job.
Hateful, mean pictures show up on the Internet every day, with people gleefully leaping in to add their ugly voices to the fray. But if we can counter that -- if we can think about the human side and the human cost of those pictures, we can make the world a kinder place and we can all be just a little better.
These are the kinds of stories that can only be told from the perspective of somebody, like Leonoudakis, who loves baseball and spends more time thinking about it than is probably recommended by most spouses and mental health professionals.
The recent reality-television tableau of Washington Nationals players Bryce Harper and Jonathan Papelbon brings to mind another famous disagreement over the failure to run out a pop fly -- one that occurred in 1990.
The ability to "center down" in a crisis, whether it's exhilarating or life threatening, determines the outcome of many critical decisions in life. It is a wonder that mental control is not taught as a major life lesson for all of us.
MiLB relies on a strong sense of community between fans, teams and the towns in which they play. MiLB games are generally affordable and family-friendly -- the perfect way to spend a summer afternoon.
I won't let go of the closers. I must admit, I'm obsessed. I just continually see nonsense and I can't help myself. When will I rest content? I guess when the baseball world abandons this newly-minted position and the teams use whom they think are their best relievers when it really matters instead of wasting them in the ninth-inning when most times it doesn't.
A lot of people don't get why we're here. They really wonder about the meaning of life. This includes some Christians! So think about the people that don't believe in God. I think they would be even more lost!
I feel like "bandwagon fans" get made fun of a lot in sports, but personally I'm okay with being one. I know that I don't know a lot about sports - but I do know the positive power they can have, and to me that's the most important thing there is to know.
During our organization's interview with Joe Maddon, he made a statement about the importance of letting ALL kids on a team have the opportunity to play. He said: "Understand everybody plays, all right, everybody plays! If the kid is on the team, he plays."
Before we get too upset at not winning the World Series, let us ask: Was there a Mets fan anywhere when the season began -- or in late July -- who wouldn't have been ecstatic with the team winning National League championship?
With the end of the World Series, I began thinking about all the lessons I've learned about business and leadership from baseball. Whether it was playing the game or watching it on TV, I realized that the game has shaped my actions and beliefs in my career and relationships.
Faster than you can say "dropped third strike," the Chicago Cubs transformed themselves from World Series contenders to "rebuilders." Or, baseball speak for, "we must get rid of a few guys."
Early this baseball season, when the days were growing longer and hope sprang eternal (for Red Sox fans, at least), I had an idea: that jobs matter tr...
I was born a Mets fan, and now that I think about it, I just might have been conceived the night they won the World Series in 1969, which was almost exactly nine months before I was born. Mostly, it's been a long slog for my 45 years.
The cold autumn rains of October started when the game was almost over. Sheets of crying rain against the lights of the stadium. Wrigley Field slowly draining, the crowds taking one last look, the giant switch thrown and the empty park goes dark.
