For all you who don’t know how the plus-minus works, players who are on the ice when their team scores, receive a plus. Players who are on the ice when their team gets scored on, receive a minus. What I don’t understand is how come players who are in the penalty box when their team gets scored, don’t receive a minus? And how come a player who draws a penalty which their team scores on, does not earn a plus? Those players are a key reason why their team scored, or was scored against. Isn’t that what the plus-minus is all about?
The name’s Jerry, but you can call me your new personal trainer. Playtime’s over, it’s Jerry time! I’m going to teach you the secret to looking as ‘Jerry’ as can be. Turn up your favorite jam and let’s boogie!
Jumpin’ Jerry Jacks
I named this one after… you guessed it, ME!!! Grab your timer and see how many jumping jacks you can do in 2-4 minutes.
- If you’re a wee lizard, then start with 2 minutes
- If you’re a cobra, then muster it up for 3 minutes
- And if you’re a T-Rex, then go for 4 minutes and don’t look back!
They’d better be quick if you wanna look sharp! And remember to count how many you do before the timer goes off. Don’t start until I say so…are you ready? Okay…. GO!!! 1 – 2 – 3 – 4. That’s right, snap those french fries. Keep it up!
When you’re done, let’s do a bit of a cool down: Continue reading

“Hi! My name is Slate and I’m nine years old. I play on two baseball teams, Rampage and The Giants. Rampage is a ‘Super League Travel Team’ and we play a couple of games on Saturdays as far away as 120 miles from where I live. On my Giants team, we play at home against other teams in my town. Both teams prepare me to be on the All-Star team for my age group, after our final tournaments are over for the season.
Other sports I like to play are football and basketball. I play football on the school field with my friends. I have a hoop in my backyard to play basketball, and I also go to a church that is close to our house because it has a full-sized court.” Continue reading
