We've Got SPIRIT, Yes We Do!

Since I'm tomorrow, yada, yada, yada...here is my Saturday Scavenger Shots using Tara's intriguing word: SPIRIT. You could, and no doubt will, go so many different way with this word. I happened to have a few shots on hand that made me want to go with a SPIRIT of Competition theme. Unfortunately, these are not great quality shots, but I'm gonna be bold and post 'em on up anyhow!


Here is Kick Back Dude running. He was an excellent, competitive runner in high school. He sort of let it go since he started his family and all, but I always encourage him to take it up again. He has a runner's SPIRIT.


Social Animal played football from the time he was about 9 years old until he graduated from high school. Now he is a gym rat. This is an especially fuzzy picture, but he is Number 53 chatting up the cheerleaders on the sidelines. Athlete, lady killer, now that is SPIRIT!


Girlie Girl may be a girlie girl, but she harbors the SPIRIT of a slugger. She was the only one of my kids who could handle the very spotlighty pressure of baseball (or softball in her case.)

There you go! I don't know what next week's word is or even who is choosing. I guess see Tara for that info and it will get passed around, never fear :-)

"We've got spirit, yes we do, we've got spirit, how bout you?" I think that's a cheer, but not sure. But it just seemed right with these photos. Excellent job!

Nice take on spirit. I gotta think of something...

Interesting shots! I took sort of the same tack with one of mine.

I really like the different takes on athletic spirit! Great chant, too. heh

Really went for the athletics and the team spirit...good choices. I like the first the best. It demonstrates the "loneliness of the long distance runner".

Tara: Thanks :-)

Churlita: I'll be coming to check on you...I'm sure you've come up with something great.

Not: Cool, I will come have a look!

Cricket: With five kids I have certainly been to my share of athletic events. Had to throw that stuff in somewhere!

Evil-E: I like that one too. I have it up at my desk and even though he is a grown up, I hate when my friends get all pervy on that picture...
