But first, congrats to Hyphen Girl and her soccer team for capturing the league championship yesterday. The girls won 2-1 and 4-2 in games yesterday, taking the championship from the highly favored team that beat them a few weeks back. Yea, that was fun. This was Hyphen Girl's first season and it was exciting to watch her grow as a player over the course of the season. The team graduates their goalie this year, so I'm already working on her to take up her mom's old position :-)

I too am being asked to sacrifice my first born to the magnificent, all caring, biker god, Bolder.
To assuage his wounded pride I must change the name of the one and only Hyphen Girl to "Bold"
What would you do?
A) Send HG to Boulder for a week, let him deal with the disorder that is 13, in hopes that by day 2 he'd send her packing name and all.
B) Change the name, for what's in a name? A rose by any other would smell as sweet.
C) Entreat the blogosphere to so press the Bold with indignation and bribes that he might renounce his claim on HG?
D) Please feel free to add
