Chillin' with Dylan — Into the cold we go...

November 27, 2014

    While I’m thrilled for the Starfires football and their raucous drive to the semi-state game, it has put a wrinkle in my Winter Sports Preview plans.
    This is a good problem to have, I suppose. It’s much better than being on time with every preview because all of our fall teams have been awful. We have, for school size purposes, one of the most blessed counties in Indiana at large in every season.

Just a Thought — Old Glory: Long may she wave

September 29, 2014

After what has been a long, long hiatus — during which I was unable to share my stimulating opinion on any number of matters — things are beginning to settle down here at the DDD, affording me the time needed to mesmerize our readers with my thoughts.
All joking aside, there have been several times in the past few months I found myself wishing for the time to write a column about one thing or another. And while most of those topics have come and gone, one is still hovering in the recesses of my often-clouded mind.

Chillin' with Dylan— The state of the NFL name

September 16, 2014

    Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson, and a slew of other NFL athletes have been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons in the last few weeks and with so much confusion and chaos surrounding the circumstances, I think it’s time the NFL puts a few things into perspective.

Chillin' with Dylan— Bellmont, AC...a rivalry game

August 21, 2014

    I wasn’t even thought of in 1978. In fact, all my future mother and father were concerned with was how they would fit in the next year when they started high school.
    Apparently, however, that marked the last time that Bellmont and Adams Central played football against each other.

Chillin' with Dylan—The state of baseball today

July 31, 2014

    It took a long time to get here for me.
    I love baseball. It’s been my favorite sport to play since I was a wee-lad but a far cry from my favorite sport to watch.
    One could make an exception about going to an actual game but that goes for any sport. I would go watch the Olympics for the atmosphere but to sit in my living room and consider myself “glued” to the Curling finals is asking a lot.
    Baseball is in trouble.

Chillin' with Dylan— Tough golf at Sycamore Hills

July 17, 2014

    Last year I did not take up the offer to golf at Sycamore Hills when the Hotel Fitness Championship held their first media day.
    The tournament is entering its second year out of a three-year contract with the Fort Wayne golf club at Sycamore Hills and once again I attended to see what the shenanigans were all about.

Chillin' with Dylan—Soccer: America’s new fave?

July 9, 2014

    There seems to be a shifting tide in sports happening right before our eyes.
    Think about what you were watching on sports television last year around this time. I can’t tell you how many times I got tired of hearing about football and who was holding out on their contracts or getting arrested in the pre-season.

Chillin' with Dylan—Why the NBA is relevant still

June 26, 2014

    The NBA draft is tonight starting at 7 p.m. and it got me thinking just how far the Association has come in rivaling football.
    The marketing of both sports have really set the bar when it comes to a 12-month schedule of sports and how much we think about them. When the football season is over, fans revel in the aftermath of the Super Bowl and the celebrations/parades that go on with that.
