Hooray for the Cubs!  I have been a Cub fan since 1948 when my brother and I used to listen to them after we finished our chores on the farm.  They were the only team still playing day baseball at that time.  There haven’t been too many good years in that 67-year span. They...

Johnny Cueto

September 30, 2015
By

As you probably have noticed, Johnny Cueto has not been very successful pitching for Kansas City since his trade from Cincinnati.  I asked myself why this is happening?  At one stretch he was 0-5 with an ERA near 10.  When I wrote this article, his record is 2-6 since the trade. Several things came...

Tim Tebow

September 29, 2015
By

I recently came upon an article about Tim Tebow and why he thinks he needs to be a quarterback to play in the NFL.  After all, he is 6’3″ and weighs 235 pounds.  His best asset as a quarterback is running the football which he certainly could do with this size and weight. John...

Jimmy Rayl

September 24, 2015
By

A recent article by Gregg Doyel of the Indianapolis Star caught my eye.  Rayl was Mr. Bastketball while playing for Kokomo High School in the late 50’s.  He even broke one of Oscar Robertson’s scoring records.  He still has some scoring records at IU where he continued his basketball career. Jimmy Rayl and Terry...

ACL Injuries

September 23, 2015
By

I recently read an article in the Cincinnati Enquirer about ACL injuries.  Dr. Tim Cremcheck, the Red’s doctor, recently did 10 surgeries in one day.  All of the surgeries were performed on high school athletes.  He has already done over 300 surgeries this year on ACL’s alone. Dr. Cremcheck believes that young athletes are over-extending...

This week when Batesville plays Lawrenceburg in football, it will be a good chance for you to see their new “turf” football field.  It is a beautiful orange and black color pattern around a green field which replaces the old “Mud Bowl”.   It should be a good long-term investment for Lawrenceburg. Hopefully, their new gymnasium...
