The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    I'd probably have a 50/50 chance of being right if I just pick the Yankees. However, I'm rooting for my White Sox who haven't won a World Series since 1917! Luckily they play in a weak division and likely will only have Minnesota as competition for the AL Central.

    Wow...that brings back good memories of when I was in university and a bunch of us would always skip classes on opening day and go watch the Detroit Tigers play

    I could give all to Time except - except
    What I myself have held. But why declare
    The things forbidden that while the Customs slept
    I have crossed to Safety with? For I am There,
    And what I would not part with I have kept.

    Well, I can say with a certain amount of confidence, that it won't be the Blue Jays. Although, I think they will be much improved this year, and will give Boston a better run for their money for second place in the east this year.

    It seems this year more than any other I can remember, there are a ton of unknowns, rookies prospects, and guys who may or may not make successful comebacks from surgeries/injuries. Could be a lot of changes/surprises this year.

    And yes, Yanks look even better this year, considering they've added Matsui, and have guys like Bubba Trammell ready to come off the bench.

    There's track and field. Pole vaulting specifically.
