Columns

  • A night to relax

    So in Josh's column last week, he made a statement that I would miss standing on the sidelines of Knights football games. Just to clarify, he meant for this season. I think some people who read the column or maybe just skimmed parts of it, thought that Josh and I were quitting our job as sports correspondents for the Enterprise. However, that is not the case. We are eager to begin covering our third season of basketball and swimming, the winter sports whose regular season games and meets start at the end of this month.

  • Changing of the guard

    Jessica and I attended the last game of the 2012 football season Friday night. I have to admit, I'm going to miss making those road trips to the away games, and I know Jessica will miss standing on those sometimes frigid sidelines when it's drizzling rain and taking photographs. OK, so maybe I am kidding about that last part, but I know that she's a football fan at heart, and will miss watching the Knights compete on the football field.

  • Big cool down

    Well, since the last time that I wrote a column, three different Marion County sports teams have seen their season come to a close.
    Both soccer teams lost their first round 5th Region tournament games, the girls team to Bardstown and the boys team to Central Hardin. The volleyball team, after winning their first round game of the regional tournament against LaRue County, fell to a Central Hardin team that went on to win the 5th Region tournament.  

  • Football ban? Not so fast

    The game of football has been around for a long time. There are even reports that early settlers at Jamestown, Va., played a game similar to football with inflated balls in the early 17th century. Now, in the several hundred years since that time, the game has changed in nearly every way. The rules are different, the equipment is different, and the players are different. In its early days, football used to be a very violent sport with some games being stopped because of varieties of very serious injuries.

  • Three for three

    Well, last week was a good week in sports for Marion County High School. Three different sports teams came out with a district tournament championship title and were able to advance to their respective regional tournaments. These three teams were volleyball and boys and girls soccer. I had the pleasure of watching all three of those championship games, and each team played extremely well to win their crowns.

  • Judgment call lets 'Wild Card' be just that

    I've always been one to watch a few baseball games throughout the season, but I must admit that I am not the biggest fan of professional baseball. Don't get me wrong, I love the sport of baseball, but for the most part Major League games can seem to drag on and on. Now that the Wild Card round is complete, and we are in the midst of the Divisional Series, I find myself watching the games.

  • More postseason talk

  • Postseason push

    It may seem like a strange time of year to be talking about the postseason.  After all, it is still September. The NFL season has just begun and won't be heading into the postseason until after the turn of the New Year. College football is in the same boat, and basketball seasons haven't started yet. The closest sport preparing to head into postseason is Major League Baseball, but that is not the sport I'm talking about.

  • Good things

    In my last column, I wrote about switching teams and how I have now become a Denver Broncos fan because Peyton Manning is now wearing the navy and orange. I talked about how I love his passion for the game and how I couldn't wait to watch him play again finally since having to see Manning on the sideline all last year due to a neck injury.

  • My point of view

    While writing game reports and stories about the variety of sporting events we cover, I am supposed to remain objective and report on facts alone. At times that can be difficult. When I am at games and I feel that our team or a member of our team has been on the receiving end of anything that I don't think is right, I am upset. At least I am upset on the inside, but on the outside I try my best to keep my emotions to myself.
