Hurdle (6/30/2013):

We’re on a road. I want them (the players) to enjoy the scenery. It’s not just put blinders on, drive fast, and get there. I want them enjoy the scenery. There are some mile markers we need to enjoy along the way. We’re in the right lane, but we’ve got a lot of miles to travel. That’s how I will continue to approach the season and will continue to share with the team.
