Cleaning Up Press Conferences

July 24, 2015
By

I have learned through the years that you don’t ask certain questions after a team loses unless you are prepared for what might come out of their mouth.  I still remember a young radio partner of mine asking to do the post-game interview after a tough Batesville basketball loss.  His first statement was “I...

Jordon Spieth will either still have 2 majors when this article comes out or, if he wins the British Open, it will be 3 majors.  According to an article I read in Sports Illustrated, he was asked where all the athletic ability came from.  He said the athletics primarily came from is mom who...

Umpiring Baseball

July 20, 2015
By

The other day I was watching a Youth League baseball championship game.  It was a great contest between two very good young baseball teams.  Unfortunately, the game ended on a sour note. I have umpired many ball games in the past and know how tough it is to make calls on the field.  One...

July 14, 2015
By

I am certainly not an expert on soccer, but it was great to watch the United States Women dismantle Japan in the World Cup Final.  The USA team scored 4 goals in 16 minutes which is unheard of in professional soccer.  The 5-2 final is also a rarity in a final match. Carli Lloyd...
