please donate a few dollars to our efforts to support the National MS Society here
We're exactly one month out from our team of The700Level readers and writers running in the MuckRuckus MS Philly event on June 9th out in Newtown Square. And we're barely halfway to our fundraising goal! Our team has grown in size since the last time we posted, however, with two additional people joining up to run just yesterday alone. What are you waiting for? Donate today.
A lot of people in the past have said, "That's too far out, how can I plan to run in that now." Well now it's only a month away and you can surely fit it in to your calendar at this point. I'll admit, my training hasn't really been happening all that much due to the Flyers/Phillies/Sixers all playing at once, but now that the hockey season has ended, I'm going to find the time to sneak in a couple runs a week here and there. So if you're worried about not being able to do the 5-mile run, don't be. Remember what Peter Hopkins told us when we said we were a bit intimidated, "one of the nice things about this MuckRuckus is that it is true that almost anyone can do it." Remember, we're in the "fun" division. And there will be beers after. BEERS.
And we realize that not all of you can make it out on June 9th to join us in the muddy fun, but you can all click on this link and DONATE a couple of dollars to a really good cause.
As you can see in the photo array above, many of the different obstacles we'll be running through have been posted on the National MS Society's website. It'll be a dirty good time.
If this is the first you've heard about us putting a team together for the MuckRuckus MS Philly event, read our original post on it here. And if you have any questions, reach out to us and we'll find you answers.
Please, if you can't join us DONATE IN OUR TEAM'S NAME TO THE MS SOCIETY HERE. Thanks for your support. I knew you were a nice person.
ST. LOUIS -- Vincent Trocheck scored with just under 5 seconds remaining to lift the Florida Panthers to a 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Monday night.
Jonathan Marchessault also scored and James Reimer stopped 26 shots to help the Panthers complete a 5-0 road trip -- their first perfect trip of at least that many games in franchise history.
Reimer has won five straight decisions and has not lost in regulation since Jan. 7 against Boston, going 6-0-1 since.
The Panthers moved into a tie with Boston for third place in the Atlantic Division, but have the edge because they have a game in hand on the Bruins.
Kyle Brodziak, playing for the second time after missing 10 games due to a broken foot, scored for the Blues and Jake Allen finished with 31 saves. St. Louis lost its second straight since winning six in a row (see full recap).
Coyotes use three-goal 1st period to beat Ducks
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Radim Vrbata capped Arizona's three-goal first period and the Coyotes held on for 3-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Monday night.
Christian Dvorak and Jakob Chychrun also scored for Arizona, and starting goalie Mike Smith had 27 saves before leaving about 4 1/2 minutes into the third period after a collision in the net. Marek Langhamer helped kill a power play after being pressed into action for his NHL debut and stopped six of the seven shots he faced.
The Coyotes have won four of their last six.
Langhamer gave up Ryan Getzlaf's second goal of the night with 26.8 seconds to play, but thwarted two quality shots in the final seconds.
Jonathan Bernier gave up three goals on six shots in the first period for the Ducks. John Gibson came on to start the second and stopped all 14 shots he faced (see full recap).
Joel Embiid trusts the Process, more so than anyone — the process of patience.
After sitting out two whole seasons because of foot injuries, Embiid learned the importance of patience the hard way.
Appearing on NBA TV's Open Court, Joel Embiid opened up about how he reaggravated the fracture in his foot that cost him the 2015-16 season.
"I didn't know how to deal with patience," Embiid said on the roundtable discussion. "I just wanted to do stuff, that's why I think I needed a second surgery, because after my first one, I just wanted to play basketball again. I just wanted to be on the court and I pushed through what I wasn't supposed to.
"At one point I thought about quitting. I just wanted to come back home and just forget everything."
Embiid goes on to discuss the Sixers' turnaround this season and his mindset during his recovery. Watch the full clip below.
Embiid also said he models his game after Hakeem Olajuwon.
