Pine Tar

May 5, 2014
By

When a Yankee pitcher was recently caught with pine tar on his neck, it really was a chuckle!  Evidently, he is a slow learner because that is the second time he has been caught with pine tar.  At least in the old days pitchers would try to hide all their illegal pitching aids.  Joe...

Derby Weekend

May 2, 2014
By

For all fans of horse racing, this is the weekend!  The Kentucky Derby is a field of 20 horses which is twice as many as the normal race field the rest of the season.  This is why it is a very risky betting race.  With that many horses, a favorite can easily get boxed...

By

Yesterday I did an article on the practice of hiring men to officiate high school games over women even when the woman would be equal or better than the man.  This is the case for Pam Shively of East Central who is in much better condition and ability to referee high school boys games...

Equal Opportunity Hiring

April 29, 2014
By

Even though this is 2014, equal opportunities for women and men are still far apart in some hiring practices.  I am referring to the practice of hiring women to referee boys basketball games.  Even though the quality of performance is equal, the man will get the position most of the time over a woman.  On...

Good Memories

April 28, 2014
By

As I was getting ready to go to track practice, I was reminded of my high school days.  I played two spring sports (track and baseball), so I seldom had to go to my 7th period class.  It was a good thing that I was a decent student, and I was usually able to get a...

Luck vs. Skill

April 25, 2014
By

Two feats in sports occur only occasionally and to a handful of athletes.  The first is the no-hitter in baseball.  Since you are backed by 8 teammates, I consider this feat more skill than luck.  Granted, in every no-hitter there is at least one play in which someone makes an outstanding play, and there...

Marathons

April 23, 2014
By

Earlier this week they ran the Boston Marathon.  It is considered the Super Bowl of marathons.  More than 36,000 were registered for this years’ event.  I have been a track and cross country coach for most of my adult life, but I still wonder what possesses a person to run 26.2 miles at one...
