Really excited to share this recent portrait of 4-time Olympic gold medalist, and probably the best diver who’s ever lived, Greg Louganis.  He’s a true sports legend and an all-around super nice guy to boot.  If you’re too young to know why his story is so important, or if you’re just looking for some inspiration, do yourself a favor and watch the new documentary Back on Board: Greg Louganis  about his life.

Up, Up, and…

Stopped by Alpenrose Dairy in Portland this past weekend to see a friend of a friend race.  Just had one lens, only stayed an hour, no expectations, and had a blast watching these women ride.  It’s amazing they still smile when they know how much punishment is coming their way.  It was a beautiful day out so maybe that’s all we need up here in the NW around this time of year.  Enjoy…

It’s been all over the sports news since last Thursday after the Ducks won the Fiesta Bowl.  With seven NFL head coach positions open, it was pretty much guaranteed that Chip Kelly would be going to the pros.  But guess what?  He decided to stay in Eugene.  What a fool!  Or is he? Continue reading
