Chillin' with Dylan

    With all of the no-hitters and perfect games this season, it has become clear to some that pitching is on the rise but reading between the lines, steroids are on the down.
    There will be no race for 70 homeruns this season and certainly no controversy to follow. A few seasons back the MLB and its front office frowned at Toronto Blue Jays heavy-hitter Jose Bautista for hitting 54 homeruns in 2010, tops in the bigs and most since A-Rod had 54 in 2007.

ELLSWORTH AND THE NBA FINALS

    It's the stuff that excites movie producers; that books are written about; that dreams are made of. "Hoosiers" in a softball uniform. The team that never wins the title, the team that's always a bridesmaid, the team that can't get out of its own way is suddenly — almost unexplicably — rolling along like some gigantic snowball, gaining more momentum along the way.

    If you're like me you grew up watching horror films made by Hammer Studios. These were not your run-of-the-mill horror films but classily-made films that featured some of the classic horror icons like Dracula and Frankenstein, but in more of a gothic location.

That the newspaper industry is going through some difficult times, with print versions indeed likely headed for the way of the dodo bird and 8-track cassettes, is fairly common knowledge. This historic shift from newsprint to electronic forms of information distribution is seen by many as little more than the a natural evolution of technology and day-to-day life in the 21st century. Nonetheless, it is more than a little disconcerting to an aging journalist — one still a handful of years shy of retirement age — who is desperately clinging to a dying industry.

    Bob Adams says the different teams didn't begin to look alike after awhile, but, "I'll tell you, I sure was tired of talking."
    Adams was talking a bunch on Memorial Day; a big bunch. And traveling, too.
    In a period of roughly 12 and a half hours, 10 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., he broadcast not one, not two, but three baseball games for WZBD. And traveled 90 or so miles when not sitting in front of a mike.

    As long as Adams Central’s Lady Jets and Bellmont’s Braves continue to win, I will continue to have something incredible to talk about in June.
    I think that it’s been understated just how impressive AC has been. It started out as a first when the Jets won their first sectional ever over Bishop Luers. After the one-run victory, it seemed that they were fortunate just to be moving on.
    Then they won again.

Sectionals and beyond...

    I’m a big fan of movies. Not new movies; I haven’t been to a theater in a decade — in part because I’m too cheap to shell out $10 for what will probably be a lousy flick anyway.
    But give me an old movie any day, any time, and I’ll be a happy camper. I’ll gladly watch Casablanca or Cool Hand Luke for the umpteenth time. Same goes for anything Bogey and Bacall (To Have and Have Not and Key Largo are particular favorites). Or almost anything Alfred Hitchcock ever directed.
