By

When you sit down to broadcast a sporting event, you never know what kind of day it is going to be.  Marty Brennaman is hosting a reunion with some members of the Duke/Kentucky game in the NCAA Tournament where Chris Laettner of Duke sank an impossible winning basket.  I am sure Marty knew it...

Certified Teacher vs. Lay Coach

October 31, 2013
By

With the number of sports that a school offers today and with the limited number of faculty members willing or able to coach, it has become quite common to hire lay coaches.  Many people worry about who a school might hire to coach their child.  In schools the size of Batesville almost all the...

By now everyone has probably heard about the high school football game in Texas that wound up 91-0.  Some parent on the losing team has brought some type of legal action against the coach for “bullying”.  I have not read the legal papers, of course, so the exact nature of the action is speculation on my...

By

Just recently I noticed a blurb on the Cincinnati Sports page that the Reds are thinking about trading Brandon Phillips.  Of course, at this time of the year, everything is pure speculation.  When you take a nose dive in September and your team was supposed to be the “class” of your division, heads must...

NOTE:  This article was written prior to the announcement of Bryan Price as manager of the Reds. There has been a lot of speculation on who the next Reds’ manager will be.  I did not think they would stay with anybody from Dusty’s staff.  However, the pitching coach (Price) is now being mentioned.  There was...

The Misfit

October 23, 2013
By

My wife and I were watching a new sitcom on TV the other day called “Back in the Game”.  It dealt with those kids who are always chosen last in any athletic event.  In fact, these kids weren’t even chosen to be on a Little League Team.  If you have ever coached at any...

October 22, 2013
By

Anybody who has ever coached or taught for any length of time has been involved with some type of fund raiser.  I have already talked about several of the ones that Batesville and other area schools use.  On vacation to visit the grandchildren in Iowa we ran into quite an unusual one.  This particular fund...
