Achilles Injuries

September 22, 2014
By

Why are there so many Achilles tendon injuries?  I have noticed that Achilles injuries occur at least 2 to 3 times per week in pro sports.  I looked up some information that might explain these injuries. First of all, when a person does a short speed burst, there is ankle pronation (ankle pushes out)...

Television Override

Do you get upset when your favorite night time shows are delayed, or in some cases cancelled, because a sporting event goes long past its allotted time?  I noticed that 60 Minutes on Sunday is now scheduled one half hour later so that NFL Football can have extra time.  They still don’t seem to...

Last weekend Sally and I attended her class reunion in Lawrenceburg.  Two of her high school classmates have made names for themselves in the field of sports.  Denver Kennett was a state high school champion while at Lawrenceburg High School.  Denver cleared 6’6″ in the high jump to claim the state title.  I believe...

This is the time of the year when you never know from week to week what kind of weather you are going to run into.  Two weeks ago it was stifling hot for the Friday night football games, but the next week the temperature was in the 50’s before the games were over. The...

Too Many Penalties

September 15, 2014
By

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
