Wow, February is here already and thank God. January was a whirlwind no? I'm still recovering from the loss of Kobe, to be honest. As a Newport Beach resident, I'm sure you've had your own interactions with him. Growing up in LA, Kobe was the constant hero in our sports saga. He may have retired but he didn't go far and now it's weird to think he's not there. It's certainly fired me up to remember to come prepared and keep pushing to win. RIP Kobe.
