  • COLUMN: American Club Ball ‘sure...

    The kid standing at the front door was nervous. Big blue eyes shining out from under a shock of ginger hair, he stepped forward. He was 12 years old, maybe.
    “Excuse me, suh,” he said gripping his hat in both hands, “Can ye come out ‘n play, maybe?”
    His name was Richard. His words were dipped in good East Anglian treacle, and the way he said them with such fresh innocence was endearing to a fellow twice his age.
    Could I what? Come out and play?

  • COLUMN: In Kentucky, basketball...

    We live in the mecca of college basketball. Any doubt of that has been erased over the last two years as both the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville have claimed Division I NCAA titles and both teams look poised to compete for the same crown next year. On top of that, the Indiana Hoosiers have returned to making this region second to none for college hoops.

    Vicky Rego seemed a bit nervous, but even more determined as she stood at the line of a firing range with a black .22 pistol in her hand and prepared to fire a gun for the first time in her life.

  • COLUMN: The ‘dream game’ is no...

    College basketball. The black, er, green board is erased. New slate, new script, new players, new dream game, new everything, right?
    Wrong.
    Never mind block-charge complaints or a maddening flurry of fouls in the last two minutes, our game has been hijacked.
    What highlights do you remember from season that just ended? Anything come to mind?
