Every year I take a photo of one of my pets for my Christmas card. This year, it was my cat Boots' turn. It is alway funny to watch her try to run away before she gives up, sits still and lets me take a few quick snaps of her. There is nothing better than terrorizing your pets. I will be in Pennsylvania visiting friends and family, driving countless miles in the snow, rooting for the Steelers, drinking Yuengling and feeling sad about not being able to spend more time with people. It has been a great year, and I hope everyone has a great holiday!
Here are some recent photos of Olympic high jumper Vashti Cunningham for Sports Illustrated. At just 18, the recent high school graduate is poised to become one of the world's best high jumpers. Her mother, Felicity de Jager, is a former professional ballerina and her father is former NFL quarterback Randall Cunningham. Growing up in Pennsylvania I can remember playing football as a kid and how everyone always wanted to be the Philadelphia Eagle's Randall Cunningham.
