Who said it isn’t over until it’s over? KC Royals have a say
TFW Kansas City

Honestly, who said it isn't over until it's over? Technically there is not a name attached to this common saying. However, Hall of Fame baseball legend Yogi Berra once said, "it ain't over till it's over". Yogi is right, just because your backs are against the wall does not mean you have to fold. Bite the bullet and face the challenge, just like the Kansas City Royals did  in their exciting playoff series comeback against the Astros. Quick recap, the Royals were down 2-1 in the series and facing elimination in the 7th inning against the Astros AT Houston. Base hit after base hit they miraculously scored 5 runs in the 7th and won the game, which took the series back home where the Royals finished them off clinching the series. The Royals were not one of those teams. 9 out of 10 teams would have hang their cleats, pack the bags and head home.  They knew what was on the table and they took the challenge head on. You can't look at any daunting s...

It is true you want to warm up properly before you go do a workout or go play sports, but are you warming up the right way? Is stretching bad for you? Well, that depends what you are about to do. When I was running in college it was crucial you warmed up properly before you ran a race, which is a no brainer. You have a greater chance of suffering from an injury, your times will be slower and your your running mechanics will be off if you didn't warm up. So when a coach says "go warm up" the majority of you will probably start stretching, right? Its pretty much automatic, its what we were told in school as kids, its what we see on television and movies, its the "standard". What if I told you thats wrong? What if I told you stretching is bad for you before you go out and play? You must think I'm crazy for saying that...
