  • SMITH: Is Luck worth it?
    Thursday, June 30, 2016 11:38 PM
    Andrew Luck signed the largest contract in NFL history yesterday, easily making him the highest paid player in the league. The “franchise” as I so kindly refer to him, will make more money than former Super Bowl winning quarterbacks Tom Brady, Eli Manning, Ben Roethlisberger and Russell Wilson.

    What are National Hockey League commissioners Gary Bettman and the Board of Governor’s thinking? I’m sure not many of you saw the news this week, but the NHL announced the expansion of their 31st team to the city of Las Vegas, over the bid of Quebec City.

  • SMITH: Victory, at last
    Thursday, June 16, 2016 10:57 PM
    The Indiana High School baseball season officially comes to a close this weekend with the IHSAA crowning four state champions in baseball in Indianapolis at beautiful Victory Field. There aren’t any local teams still alive in the tournament, but there are teams whose tournament run either came through Montgomery County, or they played a county team or two.

  • SMITH: The passing of another legend
    Friday, June 10, 2016 11:42 PM
    They always say that bad news and deaths come in threes.  Well, nothing could be truer than two of the iconic sports legends that we’ve lost just a week apart. With Muhammad Ali’s passing last Friday another legend passed away Friday in Mr. Hockey, Gordie Howe, who was 88-years young.

  • SMITH: Baseball continues
    Friday, June 03, 2016 10:15 PM
    Who would’ve thought entering into Regional weekend for the IHSAA State baseball tournament that all three county schools would be home?  I was looking forward to a Charger and Athenian championship at North Montgomery Monday evening, however, neither team made it that far.

  • SCOTT SMITH: Its tour of duty is over
    Friday, May 27, 2016 11:40 PM
    The bus that Jack built has finished its tour of duty, this time, in the state where basketball is still king. The bus from the movie “Hoosiers” has been most everywhere in the state where Hoosier Hysteria matters. It’s been to the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame in New Castle, Hoosier Gym in Knightstown and its biggest venue, Bankers Life Fieldhouse, to help the Indiana Pacers celebrate their Hickory days to honor the movie’s 30-year release.

  • Vogel mis-firing
    Friday, May 20, 2016 10:00 PM
    The Pacers firing of Frank Vogel didn’t sit well on the Indianapolis sports talk radio stations and many fans of the organization. I also didn’t like the decision by the Pacers front office to fire a head coach with a .580 regular season winning percentage and a .508 playoff winning percentage.

  • Shout out to Mom’s
    Friday, May 06, 2016 11:33 PM
    Where would be without our mothers? How many times during the day do you catch yourself doing something or saying something that reminds you of one of the most special women in your life? I can say there aren’t many days go by that I don’t do, think, or say something that my mother had once told me.

  • Magical 73
    Friday, April 15, 2016 11:40 PM
    In case you’ve lived under a rock, or were just on vacation last week, the Golden State Warriors surpassed the 1995-1996 Chicago Bulls record setting wins in a season, by finishing 73-9, good enough for an 89 percent winning percentage.
