  • Mike’s Minute: Spoiled athletes...

    Seth Greenberg of ESPN went on a rampage the other afternoon about how spoiled and selfish college basketball players have become.  
    Greenberg was speaking specifically about the University of Kentucky’s freshman-loaded team but could have and should have been including many more.  
    Greenberg, who was a head coach at Long Beach State, South Florida, and Virginia Tech, should not have been surprised about what he considered players being spoiled.  He also should have painted with a broader brush to include more than only Kentucky’s youth.

    The Harrison County Fillies played the third-rated Campbell County Lady Camels close for a little more than a quarter, before falling, 70-43 Monday, in Alexandria.
    The constant defensive pressure from the Campbell County defense was too much for the Fillies as they committed 24 turnovers on the night.  23 of those miscues came in the first three quarters before Campbell County took their starters out for the final eight minutes.

  • Tough time for writing

    The past few weeks each year are always a hard time for me to write an article, but it has been especially hard this year.
    My NFL boycott has robbed me of my Sunday afternoon past time and I will not write about pro games that I have not seen. Too much opinion versus facts in others writings and musings about games.
    There are few people that just tell it like it is and do not add personal prejudices into their dialogue. The NFL is not the only distraction this year during the time right after Christmas.
