Links of the Day: The collection

Well, I'm back from a crazy weekend of softball: played seven games over two days, and my trademark intensity meant that I left Revelstoke sore all over, with most of the skin removed from elbows and knees from various diving catches and slides, and bruised ribs, broken sunglasses and a black eye from a head-first dive into an outfield fence (I did catch the ball, though, so it was all worth it). The rest of the weekend was okay, but the frequent downpours made camping a bit less enjoyable, and the massive traffic jam we got stuck in on the way home certainly wasn't a great experience.

Anyway, I'm back to the grind of the office and back to blogging in my spare time. Original posts should resume late tonight or early tomorrow, but to fill the gap, I figured I'd present another special edition of the Links of the Day with the other sports writing I've been doing (for anyone who cares). Here it is:

- A piece on Nikki Wright, a striker for the Vancouver Whitecaps' prospects squad who will be suiting up for Langley's Trinity Western University this fall [Langley Times, August 7].
- A profile on Langley-based chiropractor Dr. Gerry Ramogida, who's in Beijing for the Olympics to work with the Canadian Olympic team (and specifically track athletes, including 400m world champion Tyler Christopher) [Langley Times, August 5].
- Why I'm not quite sold on the new Queen's men's soccer coach yet [Out of Left Field, August 7].
- An article on Myrte Schon, a volleyball player with the Fraser Valley Volleyball Club, who played for Team BC at the 2008 National Team Challenge Cup in Calgary, travelled to Brazil with her club and earned bronze at the club nationals in Ottawa earlier this year [Langley Times, August 9].
- A story on Brandon Kaye, the half-brother of Blue Jays' pitcher Scott Richmond, who played for Team Canada in this summer's World University Baseball championships [Langley Times, August 2].
- A piece on Langley midget football coach Dana Matheson, who won back-to-back Vanier Cups with the St. Mary's Huskies [Langley Times, August 7].
- A profile on naturopathic doctor Peter Bennett, who also is in Beijing to work with the Canadian track and field team [Langley Times, August 9].
- A piece on the Canadian women's first soccer match against Argentina [Out of Left Field, August 5].
