Semantics In Youth Sports

Soccer Tryouts
With tryouts underway nationwide, what does it really mean to be 'cut'?

Are there other opportunities for the player to still participate?

A recent article in a Colorado newspaper says clubs are 'cutting players younger' but we want to know what you think - comment on our blog!
ExtraTime Exclusive: Independence Day

Fireworks How was your Fourth of July?

In cities and towns around the country, many celebrated by watching or even launching their own fireworks displays.

Did you know that fireworks sales (in states where legal) are among the leading fundraising sources for youth sports organizations?

In California, over 3,000 non-profit groups including many youth groups sell fireworks with TNT Fireworks each year. Net profit? About $30 million - approximately $10,000 each. Wow!

New! More Tomato Tips From Demosphere's Resident Green Thumb

In the garden with Nate Muller Earlier this spring, Nate Muller, Demosphere's resident green thumb (and a great programmer, too), planted 24 Black Krim and Brandywine tomato seedlings.

The Brandywine tomatoes are starting to ripen - about 1-2 weeks from picking. This year, Muller has tried to head off regular battles with fungus by spraying organic copper fungicide in advance. However, excess rain, high humidity, and a lack of direct sunlight has led to some leaves with spots.

The weather has been good to Muller's cucumber plants, though - they're taking up every inch of available space. It's also time to harvest broccoli and garlic!

Check out more photos of the garden and we'll continue to track its progress as Summer continues!
