Chillin' with Dylan

    Is there anything more disgusting in life than a cheater who prospers? It’s certainly not what Mr. Spock had in mind.
    Yes, of course I’m talking about Alex Rodriguez. Who else in sports today? Lance Armstrong already got his. Or did he?
    Sure he got his medals stripped and his sponsors pulled but he still makes millions on his foundations and appearances.
    What about Tiger?

    Boys will be boys.
    I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard that over the years. At some point, those kids grow up and get jobs. Then they take wives and have kids (perhaps in a different order).
    I’ve had the opportunity to parooz the little league scene this summer taking in the Decatur, Monroe, and Monmouth atmosphere and boy have I accrued some great stories this year.

Hop's Heresy-A dream week, no doubt

July 12, 2013

    Imagine a camp where 1,200 kids, 300 coaches and 90 umpires assemble for one week, and the only real subject is baseball!
    Got some possibilities, huh?
    Then, put the camp in the mountains of upper New York, only a few miles from the National Baseball Hall of Fame, with games slated at 22 well-manicured fields.
    Now you're talking!

    We're nearing the Major League Baseball All-star game and while I don't usually talk too much about the regular season because I think it's entirely too long and drawn out, I am making the exception this week because I've had too many fantastic discussions about the Dodgers' phenomenal rookie, Yasiel Puig.

Alone With J

    U.S. Rep. Marlin Stutzman, who represents Adams County and other Hoosiers in Indiana’s 3rd Congressional District, apparently believes poor people shouldn’t eat. So, too, do other Republican extremists in the House of Representatives.

Digital Views

    Back in the sixties a new sort of character was formed in movies. This was the anti-hero, a person who did the right things but not always for the right reason and who always seemed to do things in the most unorthodox and unapproved ways.
    Where this was usually the odd man out during the time it eventually became the norm rather than the exception. Over the past few years there haven't been that many successful anti-heroes out there. With JACK REACHER that all changes.

Youth alcohol use doubles in June, July

    The rate of youth using alcohol for the first time doubles in the months of June and July, largely due to summer being an unsupervised time when teens are alone or with their peers.

    Happy 4th of July, everyone. I hope the fireworks, family, friends and food was as amazing for you as it was for me.
    It’s not very often that I get to sit in on a professional press conference but the opportunity presented itself last week when Sycamore Hills hosted an event for several media members in the region at their clubhouse in support for the upcoming PGA event in September.

Chillin' with Dylan—A look at the NBA Finals

June 21, 2013

    As the NBA goes, it will never be as popular as the NFL. The Heat and Spurs gave it a good go on Thursday night, however, leaving basketball fans breathless with big shot after big shot ending with LeBron and company’s second straight title.
    If you’re like me and you don’t live in Miami, the outcome of the game probably made you sick to your stomach.
