Erika Hansen writes-

Joey & GMG Friends,
Check out this link to an ESPN video, featuring a Cape Ann Business Incubator (CABI) business, ProMirror, a Gloucester-based company that provides video training systems for coaches, athletes and training facilities:

ProMirror’s systems provide on-field, touch-screen video training and result in Rapid Player Improvement.  ProMirror has been used extensively this Spring by Major League Baseball and the company has received extremely positive feedback from teams such as the Minnesota Twins, Detroit Tigers,  and New York Mets.
How cool is that?

CHALK UP ONE FOR MOTIF # 1 DAY

Thomas Philbrook Writes-

Yo Joey!
Thought you might want to post this on GMG.
Here’s a composite I made of most of the sidewalk chalk renderings executed by kids from six to sixty at yesterday’s MOTIF #1 DAY. Many thanks to all those hardworking souls who made the day the success that it was.

Did You Know? (Centerfold, Joey C.)

That Joey C. is the centerfold in the 2011 Cape Ann Guide?  (Well not exactly center, but close enough; and doesn’t he look beefcake in that photo?)  When you get a chance, pick up the new Cape Ann Guide, which is really beautiful and so professionally done, and presents Cape Ann in all her beauty, realness and glory.  But you gotta love the 2 page spread on Joey, The Man Behind Good Morning Gloucester best.

SUP the Coast, all downhill from here.

The epic adventure continues, Will Rich (grew up in Bayview) and Mike Simpson are now paddleboarding from Key West, Florida, to Portland, Maine to raise money for the Wounded Warriors Project and SUP Cleanup.

They have now made it across the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay. I’ve crossed this bridge, tunnel, bridge, in the safety of my car and wondered how someone was going to paddleboard it. Maybe go around and do the coastline of the bay? Nope, read here in their blog how they made it across.  (Took two tries.)

Googlemap that bridge then imagine being out there with the wind suddenly coming up 25 knots from the east and eight foot swells appear. Nice shallow water for big waves to pop right up. Gives me the willies reading it while sitting on my couch but Will and Rich took it all very calmly.

Still easily on track for July 4th arrival in Gloucester.
