Media Event or Sport?

July 22, 2014
By

Last week was the MLB All-Star Game.  It supposedly was to start around 8 p.m.  At 11 p.m. the game was only in the 6th inning.  This meant that they had played 3 hours to complete a little over one half of a ball game. I feel that All-Star Events in professional sports have...

I was recently pleasantly surprised when my wife answered a knock at the front door.  It was 1993 grad, Greg Strobel.  Greg ran for me in cross country and track during his 4-year stint at Batesville High School.

By now I am sure you saw the publicity that followed the Germany National Team win over Brazil in the World Cup semi-finals.  The reason it made headlines is that the score was 7-1.   In World Cup Soccer most world teams can win the title with 7 goals total through the entire tournament.  Scoring 7...

This time of year in MLB you hear announcers say “should the team buy or sell before the trading deadline?”   What they are really saying is “can this team win now or do they need to rebuild the franchise?”  Doing this rebuilding will take a minimum of 4 years.  What you first do is...
