Chillin' with Dylan

    With the Olympics looming, baseball in full swing, and football on the horizon, the one sign that NBA basketball is relevant again for the first time since Jordan? Sports fans are still talking about it…
    I’m sure that once the dust settles on the free agency, we’ll all be focused on the torch finally making it to Olympic Stadium on July 27, day 70. It seems like it takes longer and longer for the runners to make their way to their final destination every four years…
    I digress.

    I took a stab at coaching baseball this little league season and I saw a lot of things that amazed me, some that brought back memories, and some things that my group of guys did that was just plain silly this summer. I really loved the chance to get to educate some kids on America's past time and I look forward to coaching again next season.

    While thinking about what I would write for this week's Chillin, I saw a lot of great fireworks and that got me to thinking...
    What comes to mind when I think about Independence Day is a lot of explosions and fire. I took a look in the sports history archives to try and find some "Independence Day-esque" sports performances...
EXPLOSIONS!

    Bouncing around some thoughts while wondering whatever happened to Noah and the ark:
    • As Dwayne Skaggs is finally doing some work on his sweeper shop in Bluffton, officials in Decatur are hoping to get a new contractor to take down his former sweeper shop here.
    The process has been slowed by the fact that the first person who won the contract with a low bid later backed out. So new bids are scheduled to be taken next Tuesday by the city, which now owns the building.

    Okay, while it ultimately won’t crack the Top Gazillion list of stupid things said by a sitting president, I think we can all agree that President Obama’s pronouncement last week that the “private sector is doing fine” probably were words best left unsaid.

    There are many who would have been stunned when they heard that a silent movie won for best picture in 2012 at the Oscars. Okay, I admit I was one of those people. But after having had the chance to see the film it made me think that perhaps Hollywood granted the award for two reasons: one, because it is a great film and, two, because it is a love note to the Golden Age of Hollywood.

        I’ve long been of the belief that “it takes a village to raise a child” is little more than a warm and fuzzy catch-phrase that gives some degree of credence to well-meaning civic activists attempting to dabble in social interaction and to cure social ills that are often well outside their individual and collective areas of expertise.

    For a perfect example of the huge problems that can be created by lawmakers blindly following the party line, look no further than the South Bend-Fort Wayne Diocese's recent attempt to purchase an empty Monroeville school building.

    There are tons of movies released every year and the fact is all of them can't be the most stupendous movie ever made. But there are many that fall into the category of fun movies that offer no redeeming value whatsoever and yet are filled with fun and energy. THIS IS WAR is one of those movies, a film that's fun to watch and may be worth watching again and yet it offers no social redeeming value. So what? It's a movie, kids!
