Hoosier Hot Shots of Old

October 13, 2015
By

If you remember anything about Indiana basketball, these 6 guys all qualify as “hot shots”.  Included are Rick Mount of Lebanon High School and Purdue University.  He averaged over 30 points a game before there was a 3-point shot.  About this time, Jim Rayl of Kokomo High School and IU did just about the...

Dodger Greats

October 12, 2015
By

Don Drysdale in 1968 went 58+ innings without giving up a run.  Most people felt this would last forever.  What he forgot to do was to tell the Dodger management not to draft a pitcher named Orel Hershiser.  In 1988 Orel proceeded to go 59 innings without giving up a run.  As far as...

College Football Attendance Up

October 7, 2015
By

Over the last several years, the attendance at college football games keeps going up.  However, student attendance keeps going down.  In fact, I think it is down as much as 7% in the major 5 conferences.  What are the reasons for this?  First of all, most colleges do not include sports attendance vouchers in...

How About This?

October 5, 2015
By

In a September 3 game in which the Washington Nationals won 15-1 over Atlanta, Bryce Harper had quite a statistical line for this game.  He did not have an official at bat.  He walked 4 times and drove in a run.  He was the first one in the modern era of baseball to accomplish...

Earlier Trade Deadline

October 2, 2015
By

Joe Sheehan, in a Sports Illustrated article, suggested that the trade deadline should be moved up to June 1 rather than July 31.  His reason was that after the first third of the season you know what your team needs to be able to compete.  If you can trade for those players at this...

Wild Card

October 1, 2015
By

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...

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[...]
