I just saw that Duke University has a campaign just like my school’s! Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania launched the “Don’t Say” Initiative this past week and I fell in love with my school even more because of it. Go D2 Athletics!

17-year-old Claressa “T-Rex” Shields dreams of being the first woman to win a gold medal in Olympic boxing. But in order for her to succeed, she’ll need to stand her ground both inside and outside the ring.

Watch the trailer:

T-Rex: Her Fight For Gold premieres on @independentlenspbs-blog tonight (August 2nd). Catch it on PBS - check your local listings here.

So Meryl Davis came into my work this evening.

Yes, she is that beautiful and perfect in real life. I was not permitted to ask for an autograph or get a picture. But I honestly didn’t want to bother her while she was shopping, and goodness knows I would look like a complete troll next to her in a picture. But she’s so lovely, and I was thrilled I got to tell her how amazing I think she is and congratulate her on all of her earned success!


In case you haven’t heard, Glenn Robinson III can jump high.
