Today's Sports

  • Pageantry in Philly to Poythress...

    Across the map, Christmas spirit.
    Demonstrations in American cities aside, there was joy in the land last Saturday. A trifecta of bring-out-the-best-in-us sporting events.
    • IN PHILADELPHIA, they came from Annapolis, Maryland and West Point, New York, marched together, cheered mightily against one another, then, at the end, sang together.
    Army-Navy is the essence of us: My fellow man first, no-I-in-team, no look-at-ME show-off and no place for “show me the money” either.

  • The NFL stands more for PC these...

    We know the NFL stands for the National Football League, but the joke has long been that it also stands for the No Fun League. The Commissioner’s office has been notorious for its heavy-handed approach and control about the image presented by the teams, the players and everyone involved.
    So much of it is about the money. Companies spend millions to be officially licensed with the NFL, and the league is Orwellian in its big brother approach to controlling what is worn by players. Any player caught out of ‘Nike’ apparel can find himself in some hot water.

  • Lady Bears nip Campbellsville to...

     

  • Bears beat Danville 60-41

     

  • Marksbury named district coach...

    Spencer County Bears Head Football Coach Mike Marksbury was named the Class 4A District 3 Coach of the Year by the Kentucky Football Coaches Association
    “To have my fellow coaches recognize the work that we have put into this program is a really nice thing,” said Marksbury. He was quick to deflect sole credit, sharing it instead with members of his staff and the players.
    “It is a team effort and it takes all the coaches and players to buy in for a common goal.”

  • Bears dominate Evangel 89-34

     

  • Young Lady Bears team gets first...

    A young Lady Bears team got their first victory of the new season with a 65-17 victory over Evangel Christian on Saturday evening at home.
    Spencer County jumped ahead 14-0 and never looked back as they took advantage of turnovers and dominated on both ends of the floor. They led 44-13 at the half and the score allowed first-year coach Brandy Scott to get some valuable playing time for everyone on the bench.

  • Spencer County youth compete in...
  • Another football season gives...

    Well this past weekend marked the end of the regular season for college football. I for one am a bit saddened that yet another college football season is behind us, but I am looking forward to getting involved in both high school and college basketball here in Kentucky.

  • Live sporting events trump dead...

    I read a report a couple of weeks ago regarding a survey revealing more young American males watch a television series about zombies than professional football on Sunday nights. What has happened to our nation?
    No, I don’t get the fascination with slow-walking dead people seeking out live victims. Just as I didn’t get the vampire fad American teens sank their teeth into a few years ago. I’m a traditionalist. Fads come and go like the wind, but traditions can become institutions and sports is definitively an American institution.
