  • COLUMN: Not impartial when it comes to the Reds

    I admit it.

    Sitting in the Sun Deck at Great American Ball Park last Thursday I never really lost hope.  Sure, the Reds were trailing the Milwaukee Brewers 1-0 in the bottom of the ninth inning. Sure, Zack Cozart and Joey Votto had struck out.

    I still had hope.  Call me a Reds fan, if you like. You'd be making the major understatement. I am a huge Reds fanatic. Have been since Jim Maloney was blowing National League batters away and Leo Cardenas was one of baseball's most under-rated shortstops.

  • FOOTBALL: Bearcats favored but Peach 'mortified' about district trip to West Jessamine

    It makes little difference to Mark Peach what the results were the last four times Anderson County has played West Jessamine.

    All the Bearcat football coach can see is 27-21 and 42-21plus what lies ahead for his team.

    For the record, Anderson has dominated the recent meetings with West Jessamine. The Bearcats have pummeled the Colts like a lame workhorse. The last four times the teams have met, Anderson has taken home victories with a combined score of 189-42. That's an average of 47.25-10.5 for those who are counting.)

  • FOOTBALL: No mess (What?) as Bearcats slog past Woodford

    There wasn't much messy about Anderson County's win over Woodford County last Friday night.

    Except, of course, the football field.

    And the Bearcats' and Yellow Jackets' uniforms.

    And the shoes of just about anyone who had to be on the rain-soaked field at Warford Stadium.
