  • RIVER RAT: Youthful memories, plus NFL picks

    My childhood sports memories started with watching and listening to the Reds as much as I could.

    When Cincinnati was on West Coast trips, I often got busted by Mom with that single-earplug off the transistor radio listening to Marty and Joe’s calls on WLW. (The Steelers thing came soon after.) I knew my Reds players well, and tried to learn as much as I could about the guys on the teams that Cincinnati would play each week. I still hate the Dodgers.

  • GIRLS' BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Cardinals, Tigers pick up Tuesday district wins

    SPRINGFIELD — With a schedule sprinkled with several of the top teams in the state, there have not been many relaxing moments for the Nelson County basketball team when they’ve stepped onto the floor.

    That’s why Tuesday night coaches David Simpson and Jamie Hodges, subbing for head coach Troy Lee Thomas, who was ill, wanted the girls to go out and have fun against a 3-10 Washington County team they had smashed 71-14 earlier in the season.

    And have fun they did.

    Bardstown and Bethlehem’s boys met up Tuesday, with the winner still holding some hope at a shot at the top seed in the district, as both teams came in with one loss.

    But after leading most of the game, and by as many as 13 points in the third quarter, Bethlehem couldn’t withstand Bardstown’s late rally in falling, 57-53.

    “Team play — everybody was feeding in,” said Bardstown junior Trey Riney. “We got our mindset right and kept going, and kept going at them.”

    Nelson County athletic director Bill Broaddus said Brooks is making “a career change” and plans to join the military. Brooks was not able to be reached for comment.
