  • Why some names and not others

    When I write the sports news, I am often amused and confused about the nicknames and mascots of high schools and colleges.  
    Most, if not all of you, are aware of the politically correct crowds dabbling in making school mascots completely milk toast and bland so as not to offend the most sensitive whiner in the country.  
    They have failed miserably with this though they did manage to change Marquette University from the Warriors, which is in no way offensive, to the Golden Eagles. Yet, the Golden State NBA team is still the Warriors.

    It looked like the Fillies were going to give a gift to Montgomery County Tuesday night as they entered the seventh inning trailing 15-7.  The visiting Harrison County squad had committed seven errors in the first four innings of the game and allowed the host Lady Indians to score 13 runs with only five of them earned.
