  • A super Super Bowl

    e from Indiana doesn’t make them a Colts fan anymore than being a cow makes you give milk. 

    It might be likely, but not necessarily a must. That is the way it is with me and the Colts. I was for the Colts, but New Orleans winning didn’t really bother me. If it had been the Steelers, now that would have been a horse of another color. In fact, one good thing about New Orleans winning was that a former Indiana Hoosier player made the big interception and scored the back-breaking points.

  • Cheerleading competition is quite an affair

    The last time I attended a cheerleader competition the boys’ state tournament was still being played in Louisville.  I think it was the year that Jeff Lamp and Lee Raker played for Ballard, which would have been 1977. They both went on to play for the University of Virginia, but that is another story. 

    Anyway, it has been a long time and that was the only competition that I have been to ever.     

    So, the competition Sunday on the Hilltop was something new for me and I found it quite interesting.
