  • Stepping out into the world
    When Jordan Brewer and Anthony Myrks look up into the stands or over at the bench during their basketball games this coming winter, it’ll be a whole new feeling for the recent Bardstown High School grads. No longer will their father, Tiger head coach James “Boo” Brewer, be on the sidelines barking out instructions to them, and no longer will mother Debbie Brewer and other family members be there in the bleachers cheering them on.

  • RINGSIDE SEAT: Judge Ford explains his decision on Pacquiao-Bradley
    Duane Ford, a boxing judge with more than 30 years in the business, explained to HBO’s Jim Lampley during his show “The Fight Game” how and why he scored the way he did on June 9. What Ford said was disturbing and shows exactly why he needs to step away from the game. Ford, who scored the contest 115-113 for Bradley, led off his remarks by saying that Pacquiao “clearly won the first six rounds.” By that logic alone, this fight should have been, at worst, a 114-114 draw for Pacquiao in a 12-round championship fight.
