    I think the best thing that can be said about Spencer County High School’s football team is that it works hard. The Bears just finished another winning season, going 6-5 before bowing out of the 4A playoffs Friday night with a 42-26 loss to Nelson County. It was an unceremonious end to an exciting season that began back in the dog days of summer when the boys were sweating it out on the practice field. Actually, it began just a few days after the final game last season when the boys began hitting the weights in preparation for the 2013 campaign.

    The Spencer County Bears saw their season come to a end Friday night with a 42-26 loss at Nelson County in the first round of the 4A playoffs. Costly turnovers doomed the Bears early and an effective passing game by the Cardinals was simply too much to overcome.

    Slugger Museum in Louisville is every bit a match for the over-sized baseball bat standing out front. It has its own hallowed displays, crooks and crannies of memories and glassed-in baseball lore. That’s before you see how bats are made.
    To get a look at Hall of Famer Bill Mazeroski valuables before an auction on Saturday, I went back to visit last week.

  • COLUMN: Rupp's Runt Conley...

    Larry Conley was a newsmaker last week. Pardon the mix of sports cliches, but the popular (my favorite) Rupp’s Runt hit for the cycle at a basketball game.
    •Single. The idea to re-unite players from the 1966 NCAA title game, Texas Western-UK at Maryland’s old Cole Field House, moved Conley to quip, “You better hurry up.”

    •Double. Doing commentary at the Kentucky-Transylvania exhibition, Conley opined that UK fans “sit on the hands because they analyze players the same ways we do.”
