Cheerleading is a very competitive sport and Florida has been blessed with many talented andRead More successful teams. Having been apart of Top Dog since its conception in 2000, I can confidently say that this program bonds with its athletes and parents and we all become one big "Ohana"....family, Some may feel comments such as this is a gesture of "Brown Nosing", however, that just confirms how special our program is...people who feel that way obviously have never experience what we have. Top Dog No Ka Oi!

Being a Phillies fan I think it is great. Who cares how he spends his money it's his. I hope he hasRead More a dog and I can meet him at the dog park sometime. Ed from Largo.

Delane and Ed, you both bring up good points. I agree athletes are overpaid, especially inRead More comparison to teachers, soldiers and emergency responders. But if owners are willing to pay that kind of money to baseball players, I can't blame them for using some of that cash to build palaces in a beautiful area like Belleair Shores!

I drove by this house a couple of weeks ago going to Sand Key and it is amazing. Today I find outRead More who it belongs too. It is approx. 5 miles from my house. You need to see it with your own eyes. WOW!

Your child can start playing tackle football at age 5, but most play flag first. When these veryRead More young kids run into each other, it's not much of an impact to be honest. I'm not saying they never give each other a good hit because it happens occasionally. I never thought of it as dangerous, though. One important note; if the helmet is making the hit, the kid is doing it wrong, and the coach will say so. A high impact helmet to helmet hit is dangerous. I watched my oldest nephew play football from age 7 into high school. He had a concussion which resulted from an under inflated helmet used during a hard hit in practice. He also had a huge helmet-to-helmet hit during a game. The risk is real, but the benefits are many; confidence, competition, brotherhood, team play, and physical fitness, to name a few.

Being in automobile accidents causes more deaths, so do motor-scooters/motor-cycles, skateboards,Read More etc....all kill more kids than football.....! Kids cannot be wrapped & stored away to keep them safe. They must learn to cope with and to withstand adversity.
