Mountain Mama | Fear, Flowers and Favorite Rivers

first_imgThey say that courage isn’t the absence of fear, rather it’s staring fear in the face and doing precisely the things that, in equal measure, give your life meaning and terrify you. A good dose of fearlessness is required to live the best possible life. And yet, every time I go a month or two without getting in my kayak, my head churns over all the reasons I shouldn’t paddle anything hard.  This past weekend I was cursed with a particularly overactive imagination. I thought about a recent conversation when a friend asked me whether I had a will. I don’t.Of course I should. I’m a lawyer, I know all the ways an estate can get hung-up. I have a four-year old who depends on me. On the way to the put-in of my favorite Class IV run, one question looped in my head. What happens to my four-year old if anything happens to me on the river?I needed a break from my son and craved a day of being something other than a mom. My son started every sentence with mommy and it grated on me, just hearing that word and his need for my help and attention. Now that I had that break I so dearly needed, I nearly talked myself out of paddling before we even got to the put-in. Even felt like a bad mom for wanting time to myself and wondered if he was still crying to the sitter over my departure.20160225_183723The water was so crystal clear. Even from my vantage point at the put-in, I could count the rocks on the riverbed, some ten feet underwater. The river turned just out of sight, where the real action begins.Something about the verdant moss combined with the opaque emerald water beckoned me so I ignored the nagging voice that was saying I should prioritize time with my son, especially now when he still like to hang out with me. I had the chance to paddle with two of my favorite people on a river that I hadn’t been on for four years. The first drop was followed by half a dozen more, the frothy whitewater a cold splash of reality. I was alive in the moment, studying the precise fold of a wave, the angle to boof a rock. The energy between us was palpable after every drop. I recognized every rapid, knew with certainty the ways in which the run could go wrong. I felt a few inches behind where I wanted to be, just off enough to keep me humble and aware. Everything else fell away, all my responsibilities and endless to-do lists. I stopped thinking about my son, worrying I wasn’t doing my best as a parent.Before the biggest rapid, we eddied out and my friend told me the line. After the first drop, grabbing the eddy on the right was optional.“So will you get the eddy?” I asked. Whenever I feel uncertain, I cling to a plan.She responded off-handedly. “It all depends where I am after the first drop. If it makes sense, I’ll go into the eddy. If not, I’ll angle right and paddle hard through the second drop.”That’s when in sunk in that the antidote for fear is softening to the opportunities that present themselves, about remaining as open as possible. I exhaled and then kayaked with purpose.After the first drop the rest of the rapid opened up, and I could see precisely where I wanted to be. I was rusty, so still fought the pushy whitewater to stay on line.I smiled a big, toothy grin, unable to contain the moment.We paddled the rest of the river, happy to be together again, the three of us, in this place, one that resonates within each of us as sacred. I didn’t even flip upside down, much less come close to needing a will in place. And when I did get home, my son greeted me with a bouquet of flowers, one that he picked out especially for me. “These are beautiful, mom. Like you,” he said. I pulled him into a hug, his body folding into mine and inhaled him, which smelled all the sweeter to me after getting on the river.[divider]More from BlueRidgeOutdoors.com[/divider]last_img read more

ATBS has one of best medical facilities — Bauchi FA

first_imgRelatedPosts NPFL: Coach Dogo leaves Sunshine Stars NFF sanctions NPFL 2019/2020 final table Ex-Eagles’ keeper joins Kwara United Bashir Idris, Secretary of the Bauchi State Football Association, on Saturday assured that the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium in Bauchi has one of the best medical facilities in the country. Idris told the News Agency of Nigeria in Bauchi that the facility can host not only Nigeria Professional Football League matches, but also international competitions. He described the incident that occurred with one of the Nasarawa Football Club players who slumped and died during a match due to lack of medical facilities as “a sad and shameful development for the NPFL.” He said: “Here at the ATBS in Bauchi, we have all the medical facilities required. “We have a medical centre where the facilities are located and even people from the host communities come to the stadium for medical attention. “We have no doubt that the ATBS can host any match, because whatever is required are available.” The Football Association secretary also said the stadium’s medical team, which comprises of doctors, nurses and Red Cross members work day and night, especially during tournaments, attending to all teams. Idris added: “Other state sports authorities should come to Bauchi State and borrow a leaf in terms or medical facilities. “We are appealing to other stadium management bodies in the country to come to Bauchi to learn from us.” Idris however pointed out that it was the duty of the Match Commissioner of every game to inspect the medical facilities before the commencement of any match or competition. He observed that it was very unfortunate to see that some stadiums were still using outdated facilities during international competitions. He said: “It is left to the Match Commissioner and other officials to ensure the availability of medical facilities before the commencement of any match to ensure the safety of players during matches or competitions.” The secretary urged the League Management Company, organisers of NPFL matches, as well as their Match Commissioners to ensure compliance with medical requirements before any match. “They should ensure that any host team or stadium that lacks adequate medical facilities should not be allowed to host matches,” he said. NAN reports that the ATBS has two ambulances and two motorised stretchers as well as admission wards. NAN.Tags: ATBSBashir IdrisBauchi State FANasarawa FOotball CLubnpfllast_img read more

As Dungey predicted, Syracuse annihilates Wagner, 62-10

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments Published on September 8, 2018 at 7:17 pm Contact Matt: [email protected]center_img One word was on Eric Dungey’s mind last Tuesday: annihilation.“I just want to annihilate them,” Dungey said. “They’re in our way, in the way of our goal, and that’s what we’re trying to look for.When Dungey was slinging his fifth touchdown into the end zone to put Syracuse up by 52 midway through the third quarter, annihilation was still on his mind. It was on the mind of Tommy DeVito when he launched an incomplete 40-yard bomb down the sidelines while ahead by 52. It was on the minds of the entire team when Syracuse decided to go for it on fourth down and eight on the same drive.Syracuse (2-0, 0-0 Atlantic Coast) showcased that mantra of “annihilation” on all sides of the ball this Saturday afternoon en route to a, 62–10, dismantling of Wagner (1-1, 0-0 Northeast), marking the first time SU opened the season with back-to-back 50-point performances since 1929.“You just have to dominate the guy across from you,” defensive lineman Kendall Coleman said. “Making sure that we’re handling the fight in front of us and not worrying about someone else or where someone else.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfter storming out to a 27-point lead in its season opener against Western Michigan, the Orange allowed the Broncos to battle back, cutting the SU lead to just six. Dungey left the game in the second quarter when the lead swelled to 27 and the SU offense didn’t regain life until he returned. Saturday afternoon, the Orange would not allow the same to happen, especially not Dungey.“I was still in (head coach Dino Babers’) ear in the fourth quarter trying to be in,” Dungey said. “I’m gonna be in his ear no matter what.”Syracuse followed that attacking mindset from the opening whistle. Within the first 3:13, Syracuse led 7-0. Two minutes later, the Orange doubled its lead. At halftime, Dungey’s offense had 45 points.The offense couldn’t be stopped, even when their designed plays weren’t executed correctly. SU’s first touchdown, scored by Sean Riley, was actually a fade route intended for Jamal Custis. But after the ball batted up in the air, Riley dove underneath the ball, snatching it out of the air in the end zone. Two minutes later, back on Wagner’s goal-line, Dungey ran up the gut before he was stonewalled at the line of scrimmage. With no place to go, Dungey turned and pitched the ball to running back Dontae Strickland, who waltzed into the end zone around the left side of the scrum.The biggest difference this Saturday, Babers said, was the way the team focused on its receiving core this week.“We put a light on some things and we had some very black and white conversations with individuals to let them know what the expectations are,” Babers said. “We can’t settle. We won’t settle for less than what we want out of those positions. And I think numerous guys stepped up to show us that they’re capable of being the guy.”Eight different players caught passes. Four players rushed for at least 40 yards. Seven different players scored. After Custis was the only wide receiver with a catch last Friday, SU diversified its offense.Custis’ 41 receiving yards ranked third on the team Saturday, behind Nykeim Johnson’s 65 and Riley’s 54. Dungey tied the program record with five passing touchdowns in a game, and all five touchdowns went to different receivers.“That’s big for us, spreading the ball out and letting those guys make plays,” Dungey said. “You build chemistry.”SU’s defense chipped in too.After Wagner running back Ryan Fulse dumbfounded the rest of the FCS with 271 rushing yards last week, the entire Seahawks roster was held to just 41 rushing yards this week on 41 carries. Andre Cisco recorded two interceptions, one on the first pass of the game, and Tyrell Richards provided a spectacular interception in the fourth quarter, batting the ball up to give himself time to dive out for it.Plus, the pressure that SU failed to apply on WMU, came easily today as the Orange defensive line constantly knocked down Wagner quarterback T.J. Linta.“That pressure builds on a quarterback after a while and the more that that affects him, the better our defense plays, the better our defense plays, the better the team plays,” Coleman said.And on special teams, a second-quarter punt block by Riley in Wagner’s own end zone led to an easy recovery for a touchdown. The ball simply fell right into freshman cornerback Trill Williams’ hands. Those plays on defense and special teams allowed the offense to start in Wagner territory on six different drives. SU scored on all six.Last Friday, when the Orange gassed WMU early, the team eased up, taking out its starters and trying to coast to the finish, before ultimately having to put them back in to close out the game. This Saturday afternoon, the Orange were relentless, chucking balls down the field with a 52-point lead and trying to convert fourth downs with the game already won two quarters before.“They just caught us at the wrong time,” Babers said. “It was high tide and we were rocking and rolling out there.”But it still wasn’t enough for Dungey.Said Dungey: “I feel like we should’ve won by more.”last_img read more
