  • Let’s hear it for Cleveland

    Most people think that when the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Golden State Warriors Sunday that this win broke the “curse’ which has plagued the city on Lake Erie since 1964.  
    1964 was the year that the Browns of the NFL had given the city its last championship of any of the professional franchises. That year the Browns, led by Jim Brown and Kentucky’s Lou “The Toe” Groza, beat the Baltimore Colts 27-0 to win the title.

    Fishing for many species slows in the daytime hours during the heat of summer, but smallmouth bass who inhabit Kentucky streams bite willingly even on the hottest days.
    Kentuckians who enjoy canoeing or kayaking are lucky to live in a state with bountiful amounts of cool, flowing water that hold smallmouth bass. It is hard to beat a summer day spent paddling a tree canopied Kentucky stream, navigating stream drops and catching smallmouth after smallmouth.

  • Summer time blues

    Sports is difficult to write during the summer.  
    Thankfully, Lee Kendall is writing for me this week while I vacation in hot-as-heck South Carolina.  
    The information is more difficult to make interesting in the summer because the sports are generally involving the very young or high school sports that are AAU or some camp sports, which are not really to the general interest.

    Six Harrison County football players, three HCHS assistant coaches and Breds head coach Neil Furnish joined head coach Ray Graham for an all star football contest last weekend in Morehead.
    Graham, who was forced out as head coach at Rowan County after this past season, was back on the gridiron last week preparing for the contest, along with his former players, who were now serving as assistant coaches.
