  • BLOG: Cobb deserving of such an incredible start

    I have to admit that I missed seeing much of Randall Cobb's NFL debut live on Thursday night. That is what a long day after a Wednesday night with about two hours of sleep will do, you know.

    After watching Cobb dive into the end zone and then take his first Lambeau Leap, I figured my only real choice was whether Mr. Sandman was going to take me out sitting up or lying down.
    I chose the latter and hit the sack.

    Just when you think Cobb could not already top what he had done in his first quarter of real pro football, he does. As in a 108-yard kickoff return. As in tying an NFL record.

  • THURSDAY SPORTS UPDATE: Lady Bearcat soccer gets easy win


    Girls' soccer routs Owen County

  • Sports Blog: Wednesday sports update

    Wednesday sports update

    Not a lot going on right now locally, so it might be a good time to look around the area at some things happening.
    First, in high school football, no one predicted Anderson County would have an easy time winning a district title for the second consecutive season. The Bearcats were realigned into a district that includes East Jessamine, which has had a solid program for some time, and Franklin County, which has enough speed that the Flyers are a threat to beat anyone.
    Everyone who follows Kentucky high school football knew those two teams would be good.

  • Have you truly sacrificed for God?

    The power.
    The power to destroy all of your enemies.
    The power to be the most important.
    The power to show the world you are the ruler of all.
    Hollywood often portrays powerful, vengeful people as heroes and winners. When you contemplate that Jesus had the power to destroy the world and all of his enemies, to end the lives of the men torturing and spitting on and mocking him, remember this: he didn’t retaliate.
    As the old hymn says, “He could have called 10,000 angels to destroy the world, but he died alone, for you and me.”
