    Sports writing has often been referred to as the toy department of journalism. For most Americans who are merely fans or spectators, sports is simply entertainment. Aside from the reckless gambler, the outcome of a sporting event rarely has the ability to greatly impact the quality of anyone’s life.

    Career weekend (and not) in America, this one. If professional baseball is your passion then reserve clause a time slot in front of the TV – Major League Baseball’s annual draft, Thursday through Saturday.

    Spencer County’s Weston Pittman takes a big hack but pulled the ball foul in a recent game for the Bears. The boys finished their regular season last week on a positive note with two wins. Following a 7-1 loss to North Oldham, they took a 5-2 victory over Kentucky Country Day and then scored an 8-3 win over Trimble County on Friday. The Bears were to open postseason play on Monday against 8th Region favorite Collins at Anderson County. The Bears finished the regular season with a 9-20 record.

    Post Kentucky Derby - lean news time in the Toy Department, right? Maybe.
    First, a stop in the nut ball and section.
    Assaulted within an inch of his sanity by media’s self-righteous, Los Angeles Clippers’ owner Donald Sterling forfeited all hope of being a media martyr last week. How? Opened his mouth. Stepped into the confessional with, of all people, CNN’s self-anointed pope, Anderson Cooper.
    California Chrome is this close to the Triple Crown. How close? One nasal strip.

    Last week I discussed a few of the multi-sport athletes, most of whom excelled at one sport while struggling with a second. That got me pondering an interesting made-for-TV scenario that would pit professional athletes of one sport into an event where they would try their hands at the other major sports. I’d call it the Play In My Shoes League.

    Spencer County infielder Shelbie Goodwin scoops up a ball and makes the throw to first during a recent contest for the Lady Bears. The girls are 8-15 on the season and dropped two of three games last week. They opened the week with a 9-6 victory at North Bullitt, but then fell 9-4 at Western Hills and 15-7 at home to Henry County. The girls were to be back on the diamond Tuesday to host Shelby County.
