I hate moving.  Never have liked it.  But the time has come, and I'm excited.  Excited and nervous. 

INSPIRationbyKarim.blogspot.com was my first online property.  I then changed it to karimkanji.com but the "blogspot" was still here. 

If you visit karimkanji.com you will be re-directed to a site that is "powered" by WordPress.

I'm a little apprehensive about my move over there. 

But I hope you come and visit.

Let's play ball fans

I don't pretend to have all the answers. Nor do I look at everything as "the glass is half full." However, I must say that the current attendance numbers for our Toronto Blue Jays is a little concerning. Ok, very concerning.

The Jays, again, are off to a hot start. There is no competition from the Maple Leafs or the Raptors and Toronto FC are off to a horrible start again. 

10,610 paying customers walked into the Rogers Centre last night. This was only two days after selling out the place during Opening Day.

This is the problem.

As a baseball fan and as a fan of the Blue Jays I want to help. And I'm hoping you want to help too.

So, for the next 7 days please leave a comment. Really, leave a suggestion or two. (If you're reading this on Facebook, please take the time to come on over to www.KarimKanji.com and fill out the comments section)  And invite your friends and fellow fans to come hear and voice their opinion.

Here's the question I'm asking:

What should the Toronto Blue Jays do to increase the average attendance to games to 30,000 this year?


I'm going to set up a meeting with the person in charge of marketing and social media and share with him our thoughts and suggestion. (He is starting to listen and has agreed to meet with me and a colleague to hear our thoughts.)

Thank you for reading.

Let's play ball!

NOTE: I've been having problems with my Disqus comments thingy. I'm trying to get it fixed.  Thanks for your patience. In the meantime, please email me your comments to karim @ techvibes dot com.  Thank you.

Getting Ready

If the stars align, the gods agree, and all that good stuff happen, I should be in Mombasa with my wife to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary.  From what I've been told (I haven't checked Google...yet) Mombasa is on a beautiful beach.  And my body is not beach ready.  By a long shot.

I've got just over a month to get ready.

Ok. I checked Google.  Beautiful.

Born to Run

With the sub title being ""A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World has Never seen" I was hooked.

Author Christopher McDougall takes the reader on a journey that can only be described as breathtakingly fascinating.

I have read another book since I finished Born To Run but the images etched in my brain from reading it have remained.

Here's who I would recommend the book to:  If you're an athlete, a wannabe athlete, a weekend warrior, someone who wants to get healthy, a health nut, a vegetarian, a runner, someone who is interested in anthropology....heck, I'd recommend this book to just about anyone who even just likes a good story.
