  • Summer isn’t what it used to be

    On Saturday morning, Larry Kendall and Kim Furnish stopped by the radio station to join Jim Swinford and me for the Let’s Talk Sports program.  
    They talked about the amazing number of games that the Fillies and Breds have played this summer while on summer vacation from school.  
    I say amazing number not because the number of games is more than many other high school teams play in the summer, but when I compare to my summers as a youth it is staggering.

  • Hosts Kentucky Sliders and...

    The Kentucky Thunder 9 and under team and the Kentucky Sliders 8 and under team played host to an 11-team tournament at River Road Park last weekend.  
    The 11 teams played a combined 21 games in two days with the Thunder playing four times and the Sliders battling in six games.  
    The 8u Sliders opened the tournament at 9 a.m. Saturday with a tough 12-11 loss to Scott County.  
    They came back at 2:30 p.m. to hammer Southwest Lexington, 9-2, to even their tournament record.

    The description of always in contention but has never won no longer can be used to describe Rus Whalen.  
    Whalen led from an opening birdie on the first hole to the end of the tournament to win the 51st annual Joe Mooney Invitational held at the Cynthiana Country Club last weekend.

    Saturday night the third class of the Cynthiana- Harrison County Baseball Hall of Fame was honored at an induction ceremony at the Cynthiana Elks Lodge.  
    The ceremony was preceded by a pulled pork meal made in the Elks kitchen with the barbeque made by David Turner.  
    Approximately 150 people attended the event to honor the nine inductees.  
    After a welcome by the president of the Alumni Hall of Fame Committee, Jim Fuller, Buddy Renaker blessed the food and the meal was served.  

  • Why the NBA is hard for me to...

    I found myself listening and reading more about the NBA in the weeks before the draft than I really wanted to, but circumstances caused me to do it.  
    The circumstances were long drives in my car with a satellite radio and the Lexington Herald Leader.  
    ESPN radio was devoted almost solely to the draft in the past two weeks and I had to be in Ohio, Indiana and North Carolina. I was a captive audience.
