Its Playoff Time!

Taylors next game is at home (the first playoff game!)

on Tuesday, 5/19/09, at 3 pm Eastern time.

From Taylor's Dad:

The regular season ended Friday with a win for Alicante (was in second place) and a loss by Valladolid (was in first place.) Therefore both teams have identical records, 25 - 9, but because Valladolid beat Alicante home and away, they are ranked ahead of Alicante, and advance automatically to the Euroleague division (ACB) having secured the #1 position in the regular season.
NOTE: In Spain there are four major divisions of professional basketball: ACB (where the Euroleague teams play from); LEB Gold (where Alicante is currently); LEB Silver, and LEB Bronze. At the end of every season the top two teams from each division move up a division, and the bottom two teams move down a division. Martin Klimes (who played at UVM with Taylor) plays on a professional team in the LEB Bronze division:
The remaining top teams, #2 through #9 enter the playoffs with Alicante having the top seed. The winner of the playoff series also advances to the Euroleague division (ACB) and that is the goal for Alicante.
The playoff schedule is now on (the same site where the games are viewed; simply scroll down...

Good Luck Taylor! We'll be watching and routing for you guys!

Natural methods like doing exercises and having controlled diet regimen can be considered as the best methods to have weight loss. But to see positive results through these methods take time. Surgery and liposuction can also help one get over obesity but these are costly plus one may require re-operation. Other options that are available to treat obesity are doing yoga, sauna therapy, acupressure and acupuncture etc. As of now, these methods' effectiveness on producing positive weight loss remains a question. But these methods can be helpful in maintain a certain weight. Childhood Obesity in Canada, Mexico and the United States Cause and Effects Now at the risk of pointing out the blatantly obvious, were facing an epidemic that costs America $215 billion annually, yet were measuring, defining, and understanding it according to a tool that makes very little sense. That being the case, the obesity epidemic could arguably be cut in half immediately by simply switching to a functional metric that accurately reflects changes in muscle mass and body fat. We could also define and understand the problem.
