As manager at HordoN HEALTH, I am often proud of our clients. I have been known to sprint down the street cheering when one of my athletes crushes their goals, or shed a tear or two when a new mom thanks me for helping her move without pain again. I am lucky enough to have these types of moments happen not infrequently, as our coaches are master motivators, and we tend to cultivate clients who are not good, but great. There are times, however, when I feel as if I need to shout from the rooftops about one of our clients, and this is one of those times.
Take a deep breath baseball fans. The season's finally here! OurWorld Champion Boston Red Soxare back in action. From now until (hopefully) November, you can turn here for insight, news, and analysis of our beloved Sawx. For those who don't know me, my name isThomas Morris(aka; Cashdollar). I was raised in New England, and am a die-hard Red Sox fan. One of my first sports memories is the infamous game 6 in '86, so, I've suffered with the team.

My alarm clock goes off, I roll out of bed not knowing what
the future holds. I began my daily morning routine ending up in my kitchen
making 4 egg whites, a cup of coffee, and a greek yogurt with a scoop of peanut
butter in it (a breakfast for champions if you ask me) and then begin to get
ready for my work day. As I prepare all of my materials, ESPN is playing in the
background and I see a little side blimp from the corner of my eye reading:
Patriots’ release cornerback Aqib Talib. At first glance and listen I thought
I was imagining things being so early in the morning, but after hearing it on
Last week, the world lost, truly, one of the funniest
comedic minds of the past generation. Harold Ramis wrote, or co-wrote,
directed, and starred in some of the most enduring and hilarious films of all
time. Included in his amazing catalogue is one of my personal favorite movies,
the imminently quotable Ghostbusters, which he co-wrote and starred in as Egon
Spengler (the picture, at left, is from that movie). Some of you may not be aware that he was also the writer and director
of, in my opinion, the best sports comedy of all time, and one of the best
sports movies of all time; Caddyshack.
