Lucienne Cormier is from New Brunswick, Canada and her husband Rheal is a professional baseball player who has 15 seasons under his belt. The family has had to move quite a few times since Rheal has played for four different clubs. The couple has been together for 22 years and they have been married for 15. When you have kids life on the road can be hard.
???I guess it???s more when you have kids,??? she said honestly. ???Once the kids started school that???s when we signed with Philly for a long-term deal. Actually when we signed with Philly we stay there in the off-season, in New Jersey, so it would be easier with the kids.???
Cormier is a relief pitcher who is at the top of his profession so his salary is good but since baseball players have to endure a 162-game regular season plus a few months of spring training and possibly the post-season that doesn???t leave the family a lot of free time.
???I know baseball players and athletes generally make a lot of money but if you saw how we live sometimes we live out of suitcases and never see our nice houses and barely get to drive our cars,??? she said honestly.
S: How much does this cost for one fan?
TB: It is anticipated that the annual cost of a PTGL fan membership will be $49 for a 24 game regular season. There will be an option of paying roughly $10 per 3-game weekend series. The initial USA v Canada event on December 16 is free. Registration for this event can be completed just by signing up on www.ptgl.com
S: How much does it cost to sponsor one team and how many fans will pay that cost?
TB: Teams are actually franchises sold to outside investor groups and are not made available to fans for ownership. Fans are the ProCoaches for the team of their choosing. Team owners pay an upfront franchise fee that will vary depending on market and extent of exclusivity (prices are generally confidential) and then a continuing royalty on future income
S: Now fans can decide strategy but who has the final call, the golfer or the fan?
Reactions always welcome.

That is the story of "Bury My Heart at Cooperstown" by Frank Russo and Gene Racz (Triumph, $14.95, 261 pages).
(LOS ANGELES, CA) - The BCS title game picture got a little of the haze cleared from it Saturday with the #3 USC Trojans beating the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame, 44-24.
The Fighting Irish defense had no answer for Trojans receiver Dwayne Jarrett who had seven catches for 132 yards and three scores.
USC had been the third-ranked team in the nation for the past couple of weeks, and didn't move up to #2 after Ohio State beat current #2 Michigan. The mathematics involved in the BCS process shows that USC will move behind Ohio State in the rankings and will need a win against rival UCLA to play in the Fiesta Bowl for the national title.
(AUSTIN, TX) - The defending national champions have gone through enough this season to say "uncle" and have people actually feel sorry for them.
After coming off a hit that made him woozy in the previous game, Colt McCoy looked unsteady throwing three INTs, and giving the Texas A&M Aggies the incentive and opportunity to take a 12-7 upset in Austin.
Texas, ranked 11th, have been through a lot since winning the national title against USC last season. The biggest question mark was McCoy, and he singlehandedly buried his team's season with the three picks.
