Too Much Sport

May 23, 2013
By

A couple of days ago, I talked about being a kid and enjoying the month of May. Today kids often do not have the chance to do this. If they are out for a spring sport, I can bet at least one coach is on their back about a fall or winter sport. The...

A Day at the Track

May 22, 2013
By

One of my fun days since I am retired is to take off and spend an afternoon at a horse track. This year it is going to be harder, because my favorite track is shut down for renovation. River Downs is in a multi-million dollar makeover, so it can not only feature live racing...

May

May 21, 2013
By

What a pleasant feeling it is to experience one of those rare May days where the weather is perfect. With a temperature in the 70′s, the fresh smell of the new plants and trees, and the fragrance of the blooming flowers, it is as close to Eden as you can get. This is the...

Hitting

May 20, 2013

Why do some teams struggle so badly with runners in scoring position? One big factor is confidence. Of course, confidence comes with success, so it is one of those never-ending quandaries.

Goals

May 16, 2013
By

Not everyone who ever runs track will be a sectional champion. Very few even become conference champions, so what keeps them going? What are their goals? I am sure all of them start out dreaming of those big wins, but reality sets in so they have to reset their goals. The good coaches need...

Sectional Switching

May 15, 2013
By

I don’t know if you are aware that the IHSAA has rearranged sectionals in most sports for the 2013-14 school year. Locally, one of the differences is the basketball sectional at Greensburg. Batesville will now be in a sectional that is the repeat of their conference with Madison being moved. The other 5 schools...

Indy 500

May 10, 2013
By

The Indianapolis 500 will be run in a couple of weeks, and they will still sell it as the “Greatest Spectacle in Racing”. It is not even close to what it used to be. First of all, the qualifications have been cut back drastically, and there are usually only enough cars to fill the...
