Exercised

Earlier this week, the really early morning tv watching crowd was treated to a video of Condi showing off her exercise routine. And it is pretty impressive really. She's a former figure skater, and now, at age 50+, she's up at 4:300 every morning to complete a no nonsense 40-45 minute routine, no matter what she has done the night before. Jetlag? No matter. According to Condi, she never blows it off, 7 days a weeks. That's serious stuff. Tremendous will power there. She says she watched her father's health decline after he, an excellent athlete, ceased exercising as he grew older. And spun her own cautionary tale from that.

And today, in Pakistan, the baseball loving Bush, which is nicely alliterative, tried out his hand at cricketing, both batting and bowling. Cricket, like curling, is a sport I've never been able to figure out how it works - even though I've actually been to a cricket match.

And for the life of me, I can't figure out why they won't call bowling, pitching. That's obviously what they are doing.
