  • Super Bowl wasn’t all that bad

    After the conclusion of Super Bowl LIII, which the Patriots won over the Rams 13-3, there were two things that I primarily saw on my Twitter feed.

    Tom Brady is the greatest of all time and the game was super boring.

    I’ll get to the latter point in a second, but yes, I do believe Brady is the G.O.A.T. He has more Super Bowl rings than he does fingers on either one of his hands, and he’s got plenty of NFL records that prove he’s more than just someone who plays well in the playoffs.

  • Cornish commits to EKU

    The last time the Anderson County girls’ basketball team played a string of home games, the Lady Bearcats were only nine games into their season and Christmas was still 10 days away.

    Since then Anderson has played 15 of its last 16 games on the road, going 12-4 during that span. With only five games left of the regular season, the Lady Bearcats will now return to a venue that’s familiar and unfamiliar at the same time, that is their home gymnasium.

  • 6th grade Mustangs win conference championship

    NICHOLASVILLE -- Better late than never, as they always say.

    As of Tuesday morning, 50 former Lady Bearcats are signed up to return to Anderson County for Legacy Night to celebrate the past and remind everyone how deep the Lady Bearcats’ program goes. Alums of all ages will be present and all the former Lady Bearcats will be honored during a ceremony at halftime.
