Too Many Penalties

September 15, 2014

I was watching the pro game on TV last Thursday.  There were at least 5 personal foul calls in the short time I had the game on.  I know there is a tremendous effort to cut down on injuries, especially concussions, but I think they have gone overboard in the name of safety. Four...

Football Etiquette

September 12, 2014

What does a coach do in the second half when his team is up big at halftime?   A lot of coaches have a gentlemen’s agreement to allow second stringers get some playing time in the second half.  This practice usually leads the fans believing that their team is slacking off. Most coaches with that kind of...

OA Football

September 11, 2014

The Oldenburg Academy football team is in its second season.  Wes Gillman and his staff already have two wins to their credit since the program began.  Though this might seem to be a low number, this is quite an accomplishment when you are beginning a new program in a 1A school.  Add to this...

Fall Sports

September 10, 2014

Yesterday I talked about attending local high school and college football games.  If you do not enjoy football, there are many other fall sports going on that would certainly enjoy your attendance.  Most schools now have boys tennis, boys and girls cross country, boys and girls soccer, volleyball, and girls golf.  You can enjoy these...

September 9, 2014

We are still technically in summer, but since we are past Labor Day everyone considers us to be in Fall.  Very few people like the fact that another summer has ended, but there are a lot of activities to enjoy in the Fall.  No matter who your favorite college team is, most people who attend...

Reds 2015

September 8, 2014

Even if the Reds go on a winning streak in September, there is little chance that they can move out of 4th place.  In fact, right now they are struggling to stay ahead of the Cubs.  A lot of questions need to be answered during the off season. Will they sign all of their...

Khris Negron

September 5, 2014

The feel good story of the year for the Reds is the emergence of Khris Negron as a major leaguer.  This is his first shot as a regular player for the Reds.  He got his chance because of all of the Reds’ injuries this season.  The infielder/outfielder can play almost any position on the...

Cincinnati Reds

September 4, 2014

We still have most of the month of September left in the major league baseball season, and the Reds are still close enough that they could possibly make the playoffs.  It became obvious last Sunday that the Reds’ brain trust doesn’t really think this is going to happen. When you have many high salaried...

Big and Little

September 3, 2014

Another high school football season is already in its third week.  The largest and smallest schools playing football locally are East Central and Milan.  After two weeks, the Indians are 1-1 and East Central is 0-2, but that is not the story. Even though Milan has a new coach, they are off to another...

College Football

September 2, 2014

Another college football season got underway last week.  My alma mater, Purdue, looks like they might be able to score this year, but they still have no defense.  Oh, well, they are making progress in one area anyway. It is always interesting to see the first pre-season football ratings and then watch as the first...
