    Whenever he can, Kentucky signee Bam Adebayo likes to be in the gym … and not just when he is working out or playing a game.
    "I am in the gym every day. I just love being in the gym. Even if I am just sitting there, and sometimes I do that, I love it," said Adebayo. "I've always been that way."
    Kentucky coach John Calipari has not tried to add his feelings about Adebayo, who was a double-double machine in high school.

  • World of change

    By Gerard Flanagan, Sports Correspondent

    The sports world is full of change. Change can come in the form of a head coach's resignation, a player's retirement, or a sudden injury. Change can either be embraced, rejected, or a mix of both. You first reject it but come to accept it, or vice versa.

    As 2016’s spring turkey season neared its end I was determined to hunt the last weekend hard … real hard!
    I was up at 4:30 a.m., so I could get in my ground blind early. You know, to let the woods “settle down.”
    As the sun was barely cresting the horizon I heard it - a gobble. A few minutes later I heard another, or was it the same one? But the second gobble was closer. Wait a minute; maybe it is the same bird … headed my way!
