Indy 500

By

This weekend is the annual Indianapolis 500.  Unless you like Indy car racing, I would be willing to bet that you can’t name 10 drivers in this years field.  It sure wasn’t that way 30 years ago.  In those days, the whole month of May this race was the focus of most sports programs...

Unless you are a true high school basketball fan, you probably don’t remember Virgil Sweet.  He was the basketball coach at Valparaiso High School in the 1960’s.  He is best known for the way his teams shot their free throws.  They all shot exactly the same way, and they all hit them.

Reds’ Demise

May 25, 2016
By

When I wrote this article, the Reds were in an extended losing streak.  Who is responsible?  The first person who usually gets blamed is the manager, which in the Reds case is Bryan Price.  Although Price has proven not to be a winner in his stay with the Reds, he certainly is not the...

In 1965 a relatively unknown high school sprinter from Brebeuf High School in Indianapolis set the state 100-yard dash record.  He ran it that day in 9.5 seconds which astounded everyone at the state meet including his coach.  Since we no longer run races in yards, it still stands as a state record.  That...

Victory Field

By

When the Indianapolis Indians opened their baseball season this spring, it was the 20th year for the new downtown Victory Field.  Victory Field has the reputation of being one of the most fan-friendly ball parks in minor league baseball.  A lot of people enjoy sitting beyond the outfield wall on the grass with their...

Tiger Woods

May 18, 2016

It is hard to pick up a newspaper or magazine without seeing some article debating when or if Tiger Woods will ever get back to playing competitive golf.  I am sure there are several factors that have lead to some of his demise. First of all, like many star athletes, his faithfulness to his...

While reading Sports Illustrated, I saw a blurb stating that Dale Earnhardt, Jr., is going to donate his brain to medical research when he passes away.  He wants it to be used for the study of the effects of brain concussions on human health.  Most of you probably remember that Dale’s dad passed away...
