By

Tomorrow the Reds Caravan for 2014 will be in town.  As usual, they will appear at The Sherman House, and this year it will be  10 a.m.  Every year it allows the avid baseball fans a chance to get baseball fever in the middle of the winter.  This year Marty Brennaman will head the list. ...

Backstop

January 21, 2014
By

I wonder how many things I used as a backstop for my baseball throwing sessions as a kid.  I never had one of those throw-back devices, so all of my backstops were home made.  The most practical one was a stack of straw or hay bales lines up along the barn wall.  They didn’t damage...

Hall Hockey

January 20, 2014
By

Did you ever play “hall hockey” as a teenager?  This was the most fun in a college dorm with the cement block walls lining the hallway.  Anything could be used as the hockey stick (broom, umbrella, or bat) and a tennis ball usually wound up as the puck.  The real skill was being able...

Boredom

January 17, 2014
By

I was reminiscing about the “good old days” with a friend the other day, and the topic of rainy day activities came up.  We know what a kid would do today–he/she would pull out an electronic device and spend the next 4 hours playing on it.  Since my party-line phone didn’t have any of...

Interviews

January 16, 2014
By

Each year at this time the rounds of interviews go on for new NFL coaches.  This year there are more than the usual openings for head coaches.  The Bengals J. Gruden has already been hired by Washington, and Mike Zimmer is rumored to be going to Minnesota as their head coach.  I don’t mind...

Prevent Defense

January 15, 2014
By

You have all heard people say “it is time for the ‘prevent defense’ to end this game”.  What usually happens is the “prevent defense” prevents the team using it from winning.  No one wants the opposing quarterback to throw a 60-yard pass over the head of your defense to win the game in the...

Bengals

January 14, 2014
By

As you know, the Bengals lost a first-round playoff game again this year.  This makes three in a row and 0-5 for Marvin Lewis.  Everyone has their theory on what is wrong.  Of course, I have one, too.  I think the Bengals become too cautious in play calling during playoff games.  You have the...

Snow Days

January 13, 2014
By

As you know, we have had a lot of snow days already this year.  Previously, we knew what happened to the school days–they had to be made up.  This year may be an exception because of bitter cold.  However, my concern is from the coaches standpoint.  How do I get in my practices?  When...

Cronyism

January 10, 2014
By

When I watched the football playoffs over the weekend, almost every announcer made some reference to missed calls or just plain wrong calls by the refereeing crews.  In fact, one set of announcers were amazed when their game had a certain crew officiating because during the regular season they were involved in several games...

Former Referees

January 9, 2014
By

It is hard to believe that all of those referees that I remember so well are now retired.  My favorite crew when I was actively involved were Jerry Newsom, Rich Enyon, and Steve Welmer.  They, of course, all lived in Columbus, Indiana, at one time.  All three played basketball while in high school.  Jerry...
