  • COLUMN: Next big thing: UK...

    Now that Andrew Wiggins has made his choice without fanfare, Rick Pitino has his tattoo, Orb has moved to Pimlico and John Calipari manages to keep his name in the news (inviting Bill Clinton to his fantasy camp), the next big thing in Kentucky has to be Drew Barker.
    Connor High School’s splendid 6-feet-3, 215-pound quarterback is GI Joe clean-cut, tall enough to see over crowds at the mall, has no tattoos that we know about, and is the latest prize grease-penciled onto Mark Stoops’ board in the war room in Lexington.

    A Bullitt East base runner beats a throw to second base that Spencer County shortstop Allie Sharp is fielding as second baseman Elisabeth Huckleberry backs her up on the play. The lady Bears fell 13-0 to the Lady Chargers last Tuesday and are suffering through a 2-20 season so far. The girls were to be back in action Monday, weather permitting, against Collins and will play on Wednesday as they host Bullitt Central at 5:30 p.m. They are set to travel to Christian Academy of Louisville on Thursday at 5 and will play Sacred Heart at Jeffersonville on Friday at 6:30 p.m.

    Our theme for the week.
    • Jarrod Polson, Jon Hood and Twany Beckham received their undergraduate degrees at the University of Kentucky on Sunday. A momentous achievement. Then an Internet site hoisted a photo of Polson and Hood in their robes posing with John Calipari.
    The image prompted one viewer to quip: “What a rare eBay item that is. A picture of graduating basketball players with John Calipari in it.”
    My God, that guy said exactly what I was thinking.

  • 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?

  • PHOTO: Bears win three in a row

    A Henry County runner slides under the tag of Spencer County catcher Brennan Noel during a recent home game. The Spencer County High School baseball team won three in a row last week. The Bears played at home April 15 and defeated Carroll County 14-4. They also defeated Nelson County 10-9 and Iroquois 12-1. The Bears were scheduled to play at Collins on Monday, at home against Bethlehem on Thursday at 5:30 p.m. and at home against Gallatin County on Saturday at 1 p.m.
