  • Pre-game ceremonies: The great, the good and the ugly

    In the past week I have witnessed the best pre-game ceremony ever, a touching and very appropriate one and one that I would describe as pitiful, disrespectful and just plain uncalled for.
    Being a little under the weather on Saturday, I stayed home, in the house all day except for going out to pick up the paper on the driveway.  
    If there would have been someone to do that I wouldn’t have done that either. I do not get sick often and therefore do not operate well when I do.

  • Fillies, Breds lose at Pendleton Co. on Cancer Awareness Night

    The Fillies and Lady Cats opened the evening with a game that, after a couple of early lead changes, was all Lady Cats.
