no wonder we hired Hunter Lochmann
For those who don't know the story...
Barrows asked Harbaugh how the experience affected him, and for once, the coach opened up. "In some ways, it's a little uncomfortable talking about it," he said. "The scripture says, 'Don't let your left hand know what your right hand's doing,' you know? On the other hand, it's so good. It's not only been a great experience for me but my friends that I want to tell people about it. I feel like I should share this. I'm lucky to participate and be surrounded by so much good."
Now, Harbaugh brings his friends down, and each person sponsors a child in the nearby town of Lima. People really need the help down there -- according to Barrows, 60 percent of the population lives in poverty, and 20 percent in extreme poverty.
The first time he went down, Harbaugh was wearing a University of San Diego shirt, which may be the reason the locals call him "Diego." He really isn't sure. All he knows is that he got the name on that first visit, when he was helping to build new houses.
"I was building the house and they would say, 'No, Diego, no,'" Harbaugh told Barrows, imitating someone hammering nails. "After a couple more days it was, 'Muy bien, Diego. Muy bien.'"
Are we having an mgobeach party? Is Brian getting the hookers? I'll bring the beer.
Okay, so what is your personal favorite sporting memory where you played in whatever game it was, or ran in the race, etc? Might be a 3rd grade kick ball game, little league baseball, some high school sport, whatever. Yes, this will call for a little bit of humble-brag but we're all cyber-buddies so its assumed that some of that goes with the territory.

Mine is Woody Boyd, just because of the questions he always asked.
What about everyone else?

A sports question...
I have entered coaching and I am starting to see the differences between how athletes see sports and how coaches see sports. So a question: What role(s) and responsibilities should team captains have on a sports team? I believe it should be more then just a title or popularity contest, but am torn on exactly what a Captain should be asked to do.
Thoughts and ideas are appreciated.
