Chillin' with Dylan— Peyton’s next big NFL move

January 15, 2015

    It was one of the most obvious “passing of the torch” moments in sports history last weekend.
    Peyton Manning walked away from that game against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday having thrown just one touchdown pass on 26-46 attempts for a very human 211 yards against his former team.
    For those fans looking for validation that Andrew Luck was the right move’re welcome.

Chillin' with Dylan— Some holiday gifts for friends

December 23, 2014

    T’was the night before Christmas and all through the school, not an athlete was practicing, nor swimming in the pool.
    That’s what’s going on the next few days for the holidays. Zip. Nada. Nothing.

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.
