  • Why is football a fall sport if...

    Americans seem to have trouble with their seasons anymore. The calendar is pretty clear as to when the four seasons begin, but we always seem to be in a rush.

    Take summer for instance, the calendar suggests that it always begins in the third week of June. But we Americans start summer on Memorial Day.

    Technically, summer ends in the third week of September, but we Americans close down the pools on or before Labor Day, sometimes three full weeks before the season is really over.

  • UK gets a nod in first season...

    Postcards from the Edge.

    First Lady of Kentucky basketball is going back to college. Ashley Judd has enrolled at Harvard University and will pursue a master’s degree in public administration. The edge? When (not if) Judd earns her new degree, she can one-up NFL czar wanna-be Condoleezza Rice, come back to Kentucky and petition to become czar of UK’s athletic department.

    Stop laughing. Could be a marriage made in intercollegiate athletics heaven.

  • Local 8-year-old wins regionals...

    Lauren Lambdin, 8, traveled to Wisconsin recently with her all-star softball team from Fern Creek to participate in the 8U Regional Softball tournament. The team earned the right to compete by remaining undefeated at the state tournament in Mt. Sterling, Ky.

    While in Wisconsin, the Fern Creek team played against others from Indiana, Wisconsin and Kentucky. Their record in the regional tournament was 4-1, but came out on top after defeating Okolona 5-2 in the championship game. Their overall record for the season was 11-3.

     

  • Lexington to Louisville, Bowling...

    Sports in Kentucky for July’s last week deserved a 21-gun salute. Good news and relief from beer summitry and Sharpton shrill.

    From LEXINGTON Kentucky and Western Kentucky announced a four year football series starting next season. This is outstanding for fan base at both programs . Benefits range from creating a regional series that could save teams and fans travel time and money and rival the Governor’s Cup.

  • Local football player attends...

    Will Edwards, a seventh grader at Spencer County Middle School, recetly had the opportunity to attend Football University's (FBU) "Top Gun" football camp in Orlando.

    during the year, FBU held 32 invitation only camps across the United States. From those camps 80 players were selected at each age level and invited to attend the Top Gun camp in Florida.

  • Kentucky, Western and Louisville...

    Last, last and also-ran.

    Dire predictions for the Commonwealth’s three Division 1 football teams, Kentucky, Western Kentucky and Louisville.

    Media chose Kentucky for the SEC East cellar. Sun Belt coaches picked the Hilltoppers for the basement. And, Louisville expectations in the Big East are less a hot topic than Steve Kragthorpe’s hot seat.

    Low expectation is a blast furnace for fiery motivation speeches to stir pride of strong young men “... to prove those experts wrong.”

    Good news?
