Here's what stood out to me with all of these games, and all of these victories. You notice it wasn't simply about getting a trophy. It wasn't about simply being declared a winner. It was about having the chance to EARN IT.
Lockwood is going to have a chance to show off their impressive new high school, and Billings is going to land the business. But I gotta say, I feel bad for our friends in Bozeman who are now losing out on some business, and some great basketball as well.
Vegas isn't happening, so the NFL is having to make big changes to its plans for the NFL Draft in April. It will be a lot quieter this time, and all of the swivel chairs will be at least six feet apart.
It sure doesn't take long to wipe out the benefits of exercise. If the kids spend an hour or two playing a softball game and chase that with a bag of chips and a sugary sports drink, they're probably taking in more calories than they burn.
I've never gotten into collecting sports memorabilia, but I love hearing stories about people who do, especially this story about a guy who bought a game-used Joe DiMaggio baseball bat in 1976 for $147.
Homecoming is a blast. But a whole week of spirit gets to be a little bit much for parents sometimes. Especially when the kids wait till the last minute to let me know they need something for Wacky Hat Day, Tie Dye Tuesday, Decade Day or Twins Day.
