Pickle Ball

April 4, 2014
By

A new racket sport is beginning to catch on all over the United States.  It is called Pickle Ball.  You can play it with either two or four players.  Most pickle ball players use solid wood paddles and a perforated ball.  The strategy of the game is to hit the ball over a net. ...

Pat O’Neill

April 3, 2014
By

You have heard me mention Pat O’Neill a couple of times in past articles.  Pat was a legendary football coach  from the late 40′s to the 60′s at Lawrenceburg High School.  He also coached baseball, but that is another story all in itself.  I have touched upon that several times in the past.  This...

Call-In Shows

April 2, 2014
By

As I am sitting here watching the snow come down writing this article, I am thinking–What if this is happening the day this article appears on the Website?  If it does, Marty Brenneman and his side kick for that day will have to bring out their “banana phone” to field questions while the snow/rain delay goes...

March 31, 2014
By

This is the traditional “Opening Day” for major league baseball.  However, in this era where television dictates every schedule imaginable, two major league games have already been played.  The Dodgers and Diamondbacks played 10 days ago in Australia and that counts for their season.  The Dodgers won both games, and so they are 2...

Dodge Ball

March 28, 2014
By

I recently read where many schools have outlawed the game of dodge ball for phys. ed. classes.  I am not sure what their thinking is, because in most cases the balls used were soft and about the only marks they ever left might be a little red welt if they hit you in a...

Transportation

March 27, 2014
By

In the early days when I was coaching, it was up to the coach to find transportation to away contests unless it was basketball or football.  This meant that kids usually were asked to drive.  No one seemed to be too concerned about liability, but as I think back now, what a risk we were...

What is going on at Purdue?

March 26, 2014
By

When I am writing this article, the Purdue Men’s Basketball Team was down to 5 scholarship players.  The latest player to defect is Ronnie Johnson.  He was just a sophomore and one of the leading scorers on this years’ team.  He could actually make free throws! Since the beginning of last year, Matt Painter...

NCAA Selection

March 25, 2014
By

As the tourney continues on, we will finally see just how much the NCAA Selection Committee got the seeds right.  It is hard for me to believe that they seem to work so hard to prove a point.  The point I am referring to is their yearly snub of certain conferences.  It took several...
