  • You, too, can become ‘King of the Grill’

    My dad was not always “king of the grill.” My brother and I endured many years of waiting patiently for the coals to turn gray, only to receive the charred remains of a once perfect handmade hamburger. We referred to these masterpieces as “hockey pucks.“ Hot dogs, bratwurst, steaks, all suffered the same fate.

    Apparently several years, and moving to Florida have improved his grill skills. No longer do I hear “Taps” being played in the background when my Dad says dinner is ready.

    They’d gone into a season without some of the key cogs from their Final Four run of 2015. A few had graduated. That’s normal.

    But then a few expected to fill key roles opted to stay off the diamond in 2016. It happens.

    Yet Anderson County began the season ranked as the sixth best team in Kentucky and a heavy favorite to win its third straight Eighth Region championship.

    But the Lady Cats’ sights were much higher.
