  • Border War: Knights win thriller...

    On Friday, Oct. 28, reality ceased to exist.
    What was once thought to be impossible was now possible.
    The game is over.
    The season is over.
    The losing streak is over.
    It tastes so sweet for the Knights.
    The Marion County Knights overcame deficits of 21-0 and 34-21 and snuffed out a two-point conversion attempt with 2:56 left to win 41-40 in a wild, frenetic classic against the Washington County Commanders Friday night at John J. Boswell Field.

  • Unique

    Call me Gerard Flanagan.
    That's my name, and that's who I am. And I am unique, just like you. I have triumphs, tragedies, a story, mistakes, and other things that make me, well, me. They set me apart from the other seven billion players on this planet. The trials, tribulations, successes, lessons, and memories of which I have been apart have laid bricks in my life that have led me to where I am today.

  • Woods and Waters: Fishing isn’t...

    As our fishing season ended for 2016, I reflected back on a few things. Specifically, unanswered questions. Ya see, while the rest of our crew was busy actually catching fish, John and I concentrated on the important matters in life. We managed to answer the most pressing problems but still - after months of contemplation - we are still stuck on one question: In the USA we steer cars from the left side, but we steer boats from the right (starboard) side. Our question is “Why?” If you have the answer let one of us know, it’s important!

    By Larry Vaught

    Isaiah Briscoe certainly has earned the respect not only of Southeastern Conference coaches, but also SEC players.
    "He is a tough defender and player and underrated playmaker. Really he was an underrated player for them last year. He makes the game easier for others," said Georgia guard J.J. Frazier, a preseason all-SEC pick just like Briscoe. "They had Tyler Ulis and Jamal Murray last year, but he was that piece that made them go.

  • Knights fall to Cards

    It took 71 years, but it happened.
    It took 11,309 baseball games for this team, but it happened, and it took only nine innings Saturday night to make it become a reality.
