By

Even though Nick did not win the gold medal that everyone in this area hoped he would, he did carry the American banner proudly.  The two athletes ahead of him were both Americans as well, and it will probably be the only event where this will happen.  For a 19-year old in his first...

Do You Remember?

February 17, 2014
By

The older readers might remember this name from golf–Jimmy Demaret!  He was on the pro-tour in the 40’s and 50’s.  What possessed me to write about Jimmy Demaret at this time?  While getting ready for the day, we had a rerun of I Love Lucy on the TV, and Jimmy Demaret was their guest. ...

I wonder if any person under 16 years of age has ever done one of the following things as a kid growing up.  Have you seen your young child jumping rope, playing hopscotch, riding their bike, playing games like tag or hide and seek?  I know the very young might do hide and seek, but...

Senior Burnout

February 11, 2014
By

When you start to read this, you will think that I am just repeating an earlier blog.  However, I thought about this and I think I have a little more insight into what is going on.  I still do not agree with a senior who does not compete in a spring sport that they...

Swimming

February 10, 2014
By

At a recent boys’ basketball game at BHS, the senior swimmers at Batesville High School were recognized.  There were 6 young men and 1 young lady in this group.  It was quite an impressive resume for these swimmers.  I think all but one of the boys has been a state qualifier, and Matt Weiler...

February 7, 2014
By

About 20 or so years ago, sportscasters started to use terms like double double, triple double, and quadruple double in basketball.  A double double refers to the situation where a player has double-figure results in scoring, rebounding and/or assists and/or blocked shots and/or steals.  The triple double moniker puts three of these possibilities together.  The quadruple...
