Happy Birthday Chups!

Today is the 25th birthday of U.S. defender Lori Chalupny, who not only has developed into one of the best players on the U.S. Women's National Team over the past few years, but perhaps one of the best left backs in the world. At age 25, Chalupny has 87 caps as well as one U-19 Women's World Cup, one senior Women's World Cup and one Olympic Games on her resume. When told by teammate Abby Wambach that she could now rent a car, Chalupny remarked with a sigh that this was her last significant birthday. For all those 30 and 40-year-olds out there, we'd like to say..."Hey! You're still a youngster, Chups!" We're not sure if she got any good birthday gifts yet, but we're sure some of her teammates will think of something special. (She already got a cool balloon at breakfast...see above).

Happy belated Lori! Given that you are a fellow dog owner I can pass on to you an actual gift. A link to live streaming lab puppies in Texas.

WARNINGS: Until you know how it will affect your physical or mental performance, you should not drive or operate hazardous machinery after watching these puppies. The most commonly observed side effects are goo-gooing, procrastination and development of strong desire to fly to Texas. Headache, insomnia, and dizziness have been known to occur after prolonged viewing. Puppy viewing can cause dependence, especially when viewed regularly for longer than a few weeks, in long single continuous viewing, or while bored at work.

LOL Enjoy!!!
