"Phil Mickelson's six runner up finishes have a lot in common with ex-Vikings boss Bud Grant. Critics can say what they want, but both are superstars." Dick Vitale

|The Out-of-Door Academy Varsity Volleyball Team|
I had a great time on August 20th as my wife, Lorraine, and I had a special evening of dinner and a movie in our home with the members, coaches and administrators of the 2007-08 Women’s Varsity Volleyball Team from Out-of-Door Academy (ODA) here in Sarasota, Florida.
I always cherish the opportunity to connect with young student-athletes and share some of what I believe are the secrets to succeeding in the game of life. They were a great audience and a great group of young ladies. I wish them much success in their season this year. After I spoke, we watched an incredibly inspiring movie in our home theatre. It was the great sports movie “MIRACLE” that tells the triumphant ride of the 1980 U.S.A. Olympic Hockey team. I felt that the night was a great way to launch the team into the season with a great attitude and great spirit and I thank their parents, coaches and administrators for making it all possible.
