  • 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.

    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.
