While reading an Indianapolis Star article, I discovered that Big Ten basketball has 25 new rule changes which will go into effect this year.  I will elaborate on a few of these in a moment.  All of these rules are supposed to speed up the game and increase scoring.  The conference is afraid they...

By

Will Ozzie Guillen or Dusty Baker get another chance to manage a baseball team?  Guillen was last with Miami, and Baker was with the Reds.  In the case of Guillen, he almost had the Miami job back this spring.  However, because of some complications with his old contract, they decided to go to one...

Airport Recognition

November 3, 2015
By

Do you wonder how pro teams get through airports without being mobbed for autographs?  The Indianapolis Colts go to a remote airport gate, go through security, and are whisked onto a plane. After a game, they use a private TSA agent to prepare them for the flight back to Indianapolis.  They board a bus...

Am I Paranoid?

October 28, 2015
By

A few weeks ago I wrote a blog on how poorly I thought the umpires did in calling balls and strikes this year.  It appeared to me that they wanted the New York Mets to be in the World Series.  In the final game against the Cubs, there was one series of ball/strike calls...

World Series

By

We have finally reached the World Series.  If it goes 7 games, they will be playing in November.  This is ridiculous!  The Kansas City Royals are in the series for the second straight year.  Their big assets are relief pitching, and their super patience at the plate.  They rarely ever strike out.  The New...

South Decatur Elementary Color Run @ South Decatur Jr - Sr High School
Sep 3 @ 9:00 am
South Decatur Elementary School has introduced a new fundraising program called My School Color Run. The My School Color Run program aims to go beyond traditional fundraising. Rather than sell goods, the program aims to engage the entire student body in a fitness initiative that aims to instill a life-long healthy way of living. On Sept. 3, at 9 a.m., the students, staff, and community of South Decatur Elementary School will walk, jog, and run their way toward a healthier life while raising funds for the PTO’s Playground Revitalization Project. The color run will be held at South Decatur Jr-Sr High School, and will be open to the public. This is an untimed fun run. Participants will pass through four color stations throughout the course and end with a massive color toss at the My Color Run Post-Race Party. Participants will be treated to refreshments, music, and fun following the run. Interested participants of all ages can register by visiting www.SouthDecaturMSCR.eventbrite.com, or by completing a paper registration form prior to the event. Registration is $25 for adults 13 and older, and $20 for kids 12 and under. A family of five gets a discount at $20 per person. Pre-registration is[...]
