Hitting the trifecta

When driving to games all I ask for is a good game. A lot of times it doesn’t happen. But lightning struck this weekend — three times.

It was the sportswriters’ equivalent of hitting the jackpot.

 

This was for you, Dr. Naismith

The father of basketball would have been happy to have seen his creation in North Powder.

If you were not one of the 800 to 900 people crammed into the Powder Valley High School gymnasium Friday night, then you missed the game of the season.

You missed the closest re-creation to the movie classic “Hoosiers”.

You missed one of the greatest – almost – comebacks.

You simply missed out...

 

Learning life's lessons

Area athletes learned this fall that life isn’t always fair.

There could be another version of the same story coming later this month.

During the football season the OSAA allotted the Special District Four two playoff spots.

 

A weekend with The Observer

The following column is a somewhat “behind the scenes” look at a normal winter weekend working with The Observer sports department.

I’ll be honest, last weekend was not exactly normal. But, as it was unfolding I knew it would be classic column material.

 

Here’s to a great 2008

By now you have eaten all the ham you could want and then have tried to forget that there is still some in your fridge.

You’ve figured out that sweet potatoes next to green beans on a plate can make for a pretty good mixture in the middle.

And, you have probably been fine with the absence of Christmas movies the past couple of days.

 

Crystal ball bowl selections

It’s the best time of the year: the college football bowl season is here.

You didn’t think I’d say because it’s Christmas did you? No, this is the time where a person can escape from what I like to call “F.F.T.,” or forced family time.

So, get ready to grab your remote, something to drink, a ham sandwich with that leftover holiday ham and find your spot on the couch.

 

Union’s Fiorito leads local field at Enterprise

ENTERPRISE — Mac-Hi took home the Enterprise kickoff Classic team title Saturday.

The Pioneers finished with 263 points.

 

 

Some ideas for college football

Can we please take the letter “C” out of BCS? Because that’s basically what postseason NCAA Division 1 college football is anymore.

As long as this computerized formula is around picking the best football teams at the end of the season there will be problems.

Now, I know I already wrote one column this season on the BCS, but there are so many flaws with the system I could write something on it every week.

 

Powerless in Portland

Well, I guess the story begins with me in Albany for Thanksgiving and leaving Friday afternoon for Hillsboro for the 1A state championships.

I’d just like to say how thankful I am that I live in such a great area. I hate traffic. I hope to never return to the Portland area.
