MLB All-Star Game

July 12, 2016
By

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you know that I am not a big fan of All-Star games.  I will probably check the score of the game occasionally, but I know I will not spend 3-4 hours watching it.  To me, All-Star games are never what they are hyped up to...

Last week a true legend in the field of basketball passed away.  Pat Summit of Tennessee died at the age of 64 from the effects of dementia.  As you see, I did not specify women’s basketball, because the men consider her just as much an icon as the men’s coaches.  After all, she won...

It is the birthday of our nation.  Traditionally, this has always been a day to enjoy picnics and watch baseball.  Thank heavens some things still follow tradition.  Although if you find anyone playing a double header today, it will be because of necessity and not a planned event. With million dollar contracts and agents,...

We are very near the halfway point in major league baseball.  Since we live in southeastern Indiana, most of us root for the National League.  At this time, the San Francisco Giants, the Washington Nationals, and the Chicago Cubs are on top in their respective divisions.  We will have to wait 3 months to...
