February has come and gone, it seems, more quickly than usual. We continue to stay busy in our clinics taking care of all kinds of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular conditions, from infancy through adulthood. I am extremely proud of all our clinical staff, in both outpatient clinics as well as those health care professionals who provide physical and occupational therapy to children in the school systems. for their respective seasons and all the athletes for their hard work. One group of athletes that may go unnoticed are those who play sports (particularly basketball) under the guidance of the local Boy’s and Girl’s Club, as well as those playing in local Youth Club Sports. Both these organizations give children a chance to play, improve their skills, and learn about teamwork and being good sports — win or lose.

This one lands so low on our list only because it’s clear that the tongue-in-cheek nature of the clip is at least partly intentional. Lycra, leg warmers, fanny packs — these have all been de rigueur gym accessories at one point or another. But you generally wouldn’t see a person at the gym wearing prosthetic balls on their arms to resemble a poodle. Nor would you find yourself working out with a pack of half-poodle, half-humans. The clip, created by Panasonic as part of the marketing for the 2004 Athens Olympics, may have been designed for laughs, but the result is bizarre enough to raise eyebrows.
