Sarah's Notes
There's something about the way a great sports story illuminates what's right in front of us. Maybe it's because we're saturated in a culture of athletics; or maybe while rooting for our favorite players we see their struggles and try to understand what makes them tick. Whatever the reason, a great sports story gives us a chance to learn more about ourselves. This week, baseball fans glimpsed some of that magic when Tim Lincecum of the San Francisco Giants pitched his second no-hitter. Tch's Sherri Devine finds inspiration in this moment and captures the lesson for us all in her blog post.

And we hope you've noticed that our newsletter has a fresh look. This new mobile-friendly design means no more pinching and squinting. Tell us what you think!
