WGN

June 9, 2014
By

The Chicago Cubs are ending a nearly 90-year commitment to WGN Radio at the end of this baseball season.  WGN, 720AM, started broadcasting Cubs games on April 14, 1925.  When asked why they were leaving WGN, the Cubs replied “WGN said they were losing money because of declining listeners attributed to the Cubs losing seasons.”  The...

Flopping in Pro Basketball

June 5, 2014
By

I am really not a fan of pro basketball.   Lately, a lot of pro players have been called for “flopping” during a playoff game and they are fined heavily by the league office.  “Flopping” is called when a defensive player tries to get a charge called on an offensive player.  Pro basketball is a very physical game,...

Baseball Instant Replay

June 4, 2014
By

If you are the Cincinnati Reds, you probably wish that MLB would go back to letting umpires make the final decision on all plays on the field without doing instant replay.  It seems that every time they ask for a replay they lose, even though all their TV replays seem to show that they...

Lately I have been running into a lot of old friends and acquaintances from my years as a high school coach.  At several track meets this past season two starters who were working when I was a head track coach are still in the business of starting track meets.  Rodney King does a lot...

Last week I ran into an old friend, Andy Decker.  If you recall, Andy worked for WRBI in its early days as a DJ.  However, he is remembered more as a sports announcer.  Andy and I did many football and basketball games together in the 80′s.  Andy continued to work in the radio field...

Spring Sports

May 29, 2014
By

Yesterday I reported on the track program at Batesville High School for this spring.  Of course, track and field is near and dear to my heart since I have been involved with it for over 50 years.  Most of the other spring sports at BHS are doing quite well, also.  Tennis, under the direction of...

High School Track

By

Even though the EIAC expanded to 8 teams this year, all the prizes went to East Central and Batesville in track.  The Batesville Boys and Girls teams finished 2nd to EC in the conference, but the two schools split the sectional titles.  The EC girls pulled out a close victory over Batesville who was...

Indy 500 2014

May 28, 2014
By

This year’s Indy 500 appeared to be on its way to a caution-free race until they reached the mid 140 lap segment.  Once the wrecks started, they came fast and furious in the last 50 laps.  The final wreck at lap 192 actually stopped the race for about 15 minutes.  With Hunter-Raey leading on...

Bill Staley

May 27, 2014

Few of us remember that Bill Staley of Utah State was the second overall pick by the Cincinnati Bengals in their inaugural NFL draft in 1968.  Bob Johnson of Tennessee was their first pick.  Johnson became a Bengal regular but Bill Staley’s career was a medical disaster.  He came to the Bengals with a...
