And so, it begins. The greatest trophy in all of sports is going to be in some team's arena at the end of June. For which team? Well, the next two months will give us some idea.
On The Exchange, Sumit & Jason revisit the ice as the Stanley Cup Playoffs are set to begin Wednesday night. Dillon Friday of The Sports Fan Journal joins to talk about the new playoff format, the enduring run of the Detroit Red Wings, his hometown Philadelphia Flyers, the sustainability of Colorado and St. Louis and intriguing matchups featuring the favorites to win it all.

Let's really think about this: a NCAA men's basketball title game featuring Kentucky and Connecticut was considered the least likely in history. That doesn't even make sense when you consider the championships and talents among the programs.
And now, just under 24 hours later after capturing their fourth championship in the men's braket, the UCONN Huskies are going for another double dip thanks to their women's program.
On The Exchange, Sumit & Jason discuss the Huskies' victory over the Wildcats; with specific thoughts on the coaching that took place, the growth of Kevin Ollie and the commentary surrounding Shabazz Napier's "hungry days".
They will also spend a moment discussing the seminal event in major sports that took place in Atlanta forty years ago; Henry Aaron's record-breaking home run to surpass Babe Ruth.

A brutally extended winter has only invigorated the passions for the return of baseball to your nearest stadiums, patchy fields, watering holes and televisions (or tablets, cell phones and laptops).
Major League Baseball, we've missed you more than we ever thought.
On the first edition of The Exchange for the 2014 MLB season, Sumit & Jason return to chat with friend of the program & The Sports Fan Journal scribe Matt Whitener. They'll discuss the wave of new extensions doled out in the offseason (including the monster pacts for Miguel Cabrera and Mike Trout), the first uses of instant replay and the stricter penalties for players who test positive for banned substances.
They'll also have a little fun with predictions, stories of intrigue and more.

Many people hear that the "Stock Market" meaning the Dow Industrial Average or the S&P500 is selling down, and they instantly believe the Stock Market is in a Bear Market or that there is going to be a huge sell-off.

This show is gonna be a little different than anything that we've done before. Of course we know that being skipped or left back and being put in your right grade and G.O.T. (graduating on time) are terms that we identified with when we were in school but that's where it all started and not really where it ends.
Many people had been left back a grade while they were in school. Myself included. While those who that happened to had that in common, the thing that separated them all were the reasons that that left back, setback occurred. For some there may have been concentration or discipline issues or aptitude problems or attendance problems due to either illness or neglect. There can be many reasons that a person is not promoted to the next grade but has to repeat. That's a lot different from the people that got skipped a grade. What most of them had in common was that they were just exceptionally smart and probably had parents who monitored their progress closely. But even still, all who were skipped were not cut from the same cloth. Evironmental factors are always looming.
Being left back or skipped can have deastating consequences on a person's social life and they can either make a bad situation worse or they can make a good situation better. They can also make a manageable situation less manageable if there is jealousy and resentment issues present along with a little immaturity.
Fast forward a little bit and take it to your adult life. In many ways aren't we still being skipped, left back, put in our right grades and graduating on time? Think about your job, your family, your social circles of clubs and organizations. Anyting coming to mind? No? Ever steal or lose a lover to someone else? Ever been promoted to a position over someone more experienced and/or tenured than you at work? No? Ever see it? Ever lose something you like or cared about and worked like hell to get it back?
Rock with this show.
Vision therapy and meditation make for a poweful healing combination and Dr. Bill Harpur is a master of both.
Dr. Harpur earned his doctorate in optometry from UC Berkelely in 1982 and returned to San Diego to practice. He has been emphasizing preventive eye care from the beginning, incorporating vision therapy and phototherapy into his practice since 1989. Dr. Harpur became associated with 4S Eyecare and Optometry in 2004 with an emphasis in Developmental Optometry. He has completed extensive continuing education in vision therapy since graduation from optometry school and is a member of the American Optometric Association, The College of Optometrists in Vision Development, the Optometric Extension Program, and is a Fellow of the College of Syntonic (Phototherapeutic) Optometry. He also works for Kaiser Permanente with a specialty in orthoptics.
Dr. Harpur has been practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique daily since 1973, becoming credentialed as a teacher of the TM technique in 1977. He is now actively teaching TM in San Diego, finding the proven health benefits of the technique to be complementary to his optometry practice.
