December 26, 2022


Recommendation to Watch/Read/Listen

Drew Broderick - Shoe Dog: A Memoir by the Creator of Nike by Phil Knight

2022-Drew B-400

Graham McNerney - I read the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan over the offseason and really enjoyed it. I guess that counts for 14 book recommendations.


Filip Rams - The Way of the Peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman and the movie Gladiator

Stephen Mitchell - The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay


Macie Medieros - I would highly recommend the series Ted Lasso


Jessica Guyaux - Pittsburgh Penguins or Steelers—there is nothing like a Pittsburgh sporting event

Favorite Thing About Your Paddle Partner

Drew - Off-court beverages

Filip - Mike allows me to do anything I want and lets me make stupid decisions all the time while being supportive and encouraging! He is the most laid-back and easiest partner to play with.


Graham - Being able to win points. Rare skill. I play my best when my partner can create chaos or uncertainty in our opponents that I can then capitalize on.

Jolene - Laughing and competing on the court together; yelling at my partner or getting yelled at to “Run!”


Jessica - Jaclyn always has a smile on her face no matter what is happening in a match.

Gabi - I love that Roxy and I are both originally from Romania and that we both have two young boys at home.


Ana - Hanging out and laughing with Flor, meeting awesome people, grinding in a long match…winning.
