    Every day, we are surrounded in some way by the leaders of various organizations, clubs, entities and even countries, and we may not even think about it.

  • Be careful - ‘Dumb Thumb...

    Fished Willisburg last Sunday and ended up catching something … not a fish … from John!
    John exhibited symptoms early on but didn’t pay a lot of attention to it. Then, as the day wore on, he got worse.
    About halfway through the tournament, I came down with a mild case!
    No, it wasn’t a heat stroke or anything like that. Heck, that would’ve been easier to take. The affliction we came down with was “Dumb Thumb Syndrome!”

    Before the Blue-White Game reached halftime, some Kentucky fans were complaining on Twitter about the play of junior nose guard Matt Elam.
    Out of shape. Too upright. Not aggressive. Gets pushed out of the way too easy. Lacks intensity.
