School Recess Today

May 16, 2014
By

The other day I drove by one of our local schools when the kids were out on what we would have called the playground in my day.  What I saw was not what the fitness experts want to see kids doing.  There were a lot of kids standing around in small groups talking, a...

Frank Robinson

May 15, 2014
By

Frank Robinson today is the executive vice president of baseball development for major league baseball.  In his career he was both a player and a manager.  We know him best as a Cincinnati Red, but he probably was even better as a Baltimore Oriole.  Too bad Marge Schott owned the Reds at the time...

By

Continuing the theme of siblings in sports–Did you know that there were three Manning brothers who played high school football in Louisiana?  Everybody know Peyton and little brother, Eli, but only the true football fan knows their older brother, Cooper.  His career was cut short by spinal stenosis.  This is a debilitating disease, but...

High Jump

May 13, 2014
By

Most of you know that high jumpers today basically “flop” over the bar.  That was not the case when I attended high school.  We used the Western Roll.  The Western Roll is really an apt description of what an athlete did.  He jumped as high as he could and rolled his body full length...

May 9, 2014
By

I hope you enjoyed the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby last Saturday.  California Chrome did not disappoint its many fans.  It was a fairy tale story from the beginning.  The product of two horses that nobody wanted became the first favorite to do well in the Derby in several years.  Most experts do...

The New River Downs

May 8, 2014
By

Belterra Park is the latest racino to open in the tri-state area.  It, of course, replaces River Downs.  Today this entertainment facility starts live thoroughbred racing.  It seems that today to stay in business you have to tie horse racing with some other form of gambling.  Racinos have the video slots that a player...

Coaching High School Athletes Today

May 7, 2014
By

As I observe today’s high school athletes, I realize it is quite a different world from the one I retired from in the late 1990’s.  I still help out with track, so I see some of the things coaches deal with on a day-to-day basis that were non-existent 15 or so years ago.  The...

Pine Tar

May 5, 2014
By

When a Yankee pitcher was recently caught with pine tar on his neck, it really was a chuckle!  Evidently, he is a slow learner because that is the second time he has been caught with pine tar.  At least in the old days pitchers would try to hide all their illegal pitching aids.  Joe...
