Travel Softball

An interesting aspect of summer ball when crossing state lines into Iowa. Our granddaughter plays for a team from Washington and this was their first game. There are two Quad City teams in this tourney. Rules are if you have at least 3 girls from Iowa on your team, you are allowed to be Iowa based, ...

A lot of hype over Luke Little. Resembles Randy Johnson and has a timed fastball at 105 mph.

Re: State Finals

I really felt the the IHSA would move boys back to Champaign when they released the new format, making a complete changeover. However, when the virus canceled everything, leaving Peoria with a large financial hit. I believe that it gave Peoria another chance. Slugger has the ideal place to host the ...

Sorry Blue, but when I referred to the Governor’s guidelines, it states that in the first line of the edict.

Now this really really good stuff. I was telling my son this story as we passed the billboard when we were headed to a Bama game. Now we are frequent visitors at the 17th Street BBQ in Benton. A great diversion!!!

Re: Highschool Sports

The IHSA is following the strict guidelines set by our Governor. Meanwhile I still should not play catch with my grandson, and kids are going out of state just to play summer sports. Be sure to stay six feet apart, but you can be arm in arm if you want to protest. I never thought I would see our soc...

Meanwhile all of the neighboring states sports get the green light. We won’t start here until Chicago is given the ok, which will probably be never. Sad day for Illinois sports.

Drew Brees and the apologies

I want to ask why? In essence he said that he supports the American Flag and would never disrespect it by kneeling. I served my country and consider using the flag for airing grievances is offensive. So once again, even though I miss sports, I don’t need the NFL.

Hey squirrel, who is Richard Keene? A BU grad? I watched the video of his son and he is a quicker version of Nate Kennel and a lot of potential to grow. A good fit if BW can recruit Texas.

Jim MacDonald at Deemack was approached after he retired to name the football field after him. He declined as he felt it was too early and he Also felt that his dad needed the honor before him. I believe his dad received that honor at Rock Falls shortly after. Mac knew his day would come and it a co...

Pennsylvania Governor not ready to tell NASCAR whether they can race in late June. My advice to NASCAR, tell Governor we will move forward without Pocono. Chicago couldn’t make a decision either and lost out. Although I would much rather see fans, at least it is a sport that could sustain without fa...

Re: California State Universities to remain closed through Fall semester

While I have no basis except for gut feelings, there will be NCAA football and basketball with fans this fall. Colleges can ill afford to stay open without students and income from sports. It’s a risk that most will take.

I see no baseball this year. Players do not want to compromise salaries, and owners can’t make any money without fans.And no one will ever be able to compromise on a testing program.

WIU will now have an AAU pipeline, but will the players ever find Macomb on a state map?! After untold trips to Macomb for music contests, we told our daughter that she could go college anywhere she wanted within reason, except WIU.You guessed it,,’ she chose Western!

Boss Hog has to sign off for MLB to play in Illinois. Can’t get a haircut, but they want us to support MLB? I’m sure he will bow down to the MLB and crap on small businesses again.

Bears still haven’t drafted an OL. If there is no one to protect Foles or Mitch, they can’t throw laying on the ground.

Re: Chicago Bears 2020

So the Bears don’t get an OL to protect the qb, but another TE (11 on the roster) and a defense back who has had three shoulder surgeries. Really!!
