Maia and Alex Shibutani are ice dancers with dreams of attending the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. In 2011, the Shibutanis were the first ice dance team in U.S. history to win a medal (bronze) at the World Championships in their debut senior season. They also took the silver at the U.S. championships and at Four Continents Championships behind their training mates, 2010 Olympic Silver Medalists, Meryl Davis and Charlie White. While we are all still steeped in the London Olympics, hear what dedication and drive are needed to aspire to the Olympics and perform at championship levels from brother and sister team, Maia (18) and Alex (21) on Thursday, August 9 at 7:00 PM.

Did you hear about Chicago White Sox pitcher Philip Humber's perfect game on Saturday? A perfect game is when a pitcher faces 27 batters and there are no runs, no hits, no errors, and nobody left on base. It is a feat only accomplished 21 times in Major League Baseball history. It has been accomplished only once in Little League World Series history. You can relive that event in:
The perfect game [videodisc] — A team of poor Mexican boys, smaller than most of the boys they played against, tackle visa problems, prejudices and team dynamics on their way to the World Series. It would make a great pick for your next family movie night.
