This week on Wednesday Night with NFLFemale, we'll be talking to Bob Salomon, promoter of "A Glove Of Their Own" and his mission of helping kids through sports. Then Official Fan Reporter for the Kansas City Chiefs, Neta Davis joins us along with Kansas City sports radio host, TJ Carpenter, to talk about the Chiefs, their off season moves, and where the team is headed in 2014. Join us!
Bob Salomon is a driving force behind the success of the book, “A Glove of Their Own”. Written by three talented women, Debbie Moldovan, Keri Conkling, and Lisa Funari-Willever, and illustrated by Lauren Lambaise. Every so often you find a genuine person to support who is trying to making a difference without a hidden agenda. Bob Salomon is one such individual. Bob is a New Jersey father and proud of his two children. He wants to reach other children in a unique way through the book and to pass on the concept of giving back to all children.
The story is about a group of youngsters playing a pick-up game of baseball on a local neighborhood lot. Unfortunately, not all have bats and gloves to properly play the game. But a retired gentleman comes across them playing, only to return another day with a duffle bag filled with used gloves, bats and balls from games gone by, used by his own children. He then donates them all to the group of children. It sets a good example for the children and serves to inspire them to keep on playing the game they love. This book is truly a treasure. Enjoy this easy read that adults and children are drawn to!
The book drives home the message for children to be forthright, unselfish, giving and grateful. Equally important is that children are reminded to have fun while playing the game of baseball, and all sports, and to point out that just being a kid is okay, too. There’s an underlying theme that professional athletes, both active and now retired, start making more of an investment in their local communities in which they play or in which they reside.

My son left his baseball glove at the indoor facility where he practices baseball. He didn't tell me for a week b/c he thought I would get angry. We went back to the facility and the glove was nowhere to be found. I made him walk 5 miles home to think about what personal responsibility means. The police stopped him on the side of a 2 lane road b/c OH MY GOD a 12 year old walking is so out of the ordinary in 2014! Am I a bad father or has America become too bitchmade in 2014?
The GloveCaddie has been the best thing introduced to golf in a long time. It has been awesome for me! No more wet glove from sweating because when I put it on the GloveCaddie, my glove is out in the open air and stays dry, making it last longer too. Not to mention, I have room in my pockets now. Bottom line, GloveCaddie is a cool new product, and I recommend it for all levels of golfers. Joel Kribel PGA Pro Golfer
'I can't breathe!'
He was a 43-year-old married father of six. His alleged crime: Selling "loose," untaxed cigarettes on a Staten Island street corner. He was tackled by a gaggle of police officers, including one who subdued him for agonizing seconds with a chokehold, a move that the New York police department had outlawed because of its propensity for causing severe injury and death. The entire encounter was captured clearly on video. After Eric Garner did indeed perish in the takedown, a medical examiner classified his death "a homicide."
Garner's last words were, "I can't breathe!"
Today, a grand jury on Staten Island gave us the dull surprise of no indictment for the officer who killed Garner. It raises so many questions. Given the fact that a high-quality video of this killing did not yield an indictment, will the expected rise in the use of police body cameras (including in Philadelphia) make a difference? Can a grand jury process run by prosecutors who work hand-in-glove with the cops on the beat ever produce justice when those officers behave unlawfully? When will Americans accept there are two justice systems in the country -- one for the powerful, one for the powerless -- and when will something be done?
