No one is really fond of winter, but one thing to be excited about is the sports that come with it. What I mean by that is, there’s always an athletic event on TV, such as football, basketball, swimming or the Winter X-Games.
Have you ever heard of the movie “Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story?” It’s about a bunch of “nobodies” that get together to win a dodgeball tournament. We’ve all heard of underdogs, and you probably know that they’re usually not the best. But what about when they win, especially when they beat a top ranked team?
Some say hunting isn’t a sport and some say it is. Even though it’s not an “all-around-contact athletic event,” it’s still a sport to 12.5 million people, including1.2 million women. That’s 16 percent and the percentage keeps rising, according to womenanglers.us (http://goo.gl/RyKsw1).
When I made my way to Rockcastle County for the first and only game of the Marion County Knights’ postseason on Nov. 7, I had a feeling it would be their only night in the postseason. Though the team’s records were the same, the Rockets had a better district and region record. The feeling that Marion County was going to lose got worse when the Rockcastle County Rockets scored within the opening moments of the game.
