Watch the FIRS Inline Hockey World Championships Online Free TV

If you want to see some mad skills by human shelties focused on chasing the moving object, check out the world championships of inline hockey live online. As we've discussed variously, USA cable television seems not to want to show many sports, no matter what they say. They'd rather show whatever gets rankings of course, and is cheap to produce. Some sports jealously guard the rights to their programming, making sure no one in the USA at least can see it. Others realize they need to let people see it to enjoy it (or not) and to build some demand (or not) for watching their sport.

So here's a link:

Universal Sports Brings Skating, Cycling, Olympic and International Human-Powered and Gravity Sports to Free Over-the-Air TV

It looks like those multiple extra over-the-air 24-hour weather channels may get some other use on free over the air digital television...long track speed skating, short track speed skating, cycling, ice hockey, marathons, track and field, even curling.

What We Need... More Young Skaters Having Fun

One of the happy moments of the last week was when I was skating at Country Park and a little girl about of five years or so gleefully exclaiimed to her parents, "Look, Mom, he's ice skating!" I of course interpreted this to mean that I looked like an Olympic Ice Speedskater of awesomeness. (Please don't say there's no way.) I'm convinced kids love inline skating. How can we get them outdoors and skating with us so they can be the future of roadskating? Let's think how and do some of that.

Inline Hockey Net Minder Chuffed at Being Girl Goalie for Great Britain

Here's a nice story of a gal who's not afraid to let the inline puck hockey players fire away while she's at the goal. I don't need any part of flying objects wizzing by (or worse, not going by but hurting me), on skates or off. You go girl. You go everyone for letting her give it a shot...or a block. It's a shame many girls don't get to play baseball here in the USA instead of (or rather, in addition to) softball, in my unimportant opinion. This is just based on how much more I enjoyed baseball than softball. I don't mean this as disrespect to anyone who loves softball better.

The Secret to Weight Loss and Maintaining Your Target Weight

Whilst snooping around the personal finance and get-out-of-debt blogs, I tapped into the personal weight-loss blogs. In following the ADHD links to the maze of other such webpages, I found some funny blog titles, like "Over 40, in debt and overweight". Yes, in 2007 there are countless people still struggling in vain to lose excess weight. They all seem to believe that food deprivation and other people's idea of exercise are the only solutions. Will this hopelessly cruel and debilitating cycle ever end?
