Batting Around: When the stars (and leagues) align

Posted on July 29, 2011 | Blog Category:
By Ian Trombulak



Each of the four major professional sports in America — basketball, hockey, football and baseball — uses the same basic format to divide up their leagues: two separate conferences, each divided into divisions based primarily on location.

Weekly Rider: Sunset loop

Posted on July 29, 2011 | Blog Category:
By Andrew Stein



Few Addison County views are more breathtaking than the golden sun dipping down the backs of the Adirondacks at sunset, veiling the rolling farmland and surface of Lake Champlain in a golden cloak of luminescence.

One of my favorite times to head out on a north-south bike loop is during this period. Not only is the air a bit cooler, but you find yourself in the center of numerous sunset vistas as you breeze on by.

This week’s Weekly Rider features a Middlebury to Vergennes loop called sunset loop.

Length: 25.2 miles

Staff Blog: A cure for the technology blues

Posted on July 22, 2011 | Blog Category:
By Andrea Suozzo



You know the feeling when you look at something for so long that you almost stop seeing it?

Sometimes that’s how I look at our website. In the two years I’ve been here, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about how to make the website better and about what services and features to add, but when it comes right down to it, I have no idea how to approach the website as someone who’s not familiar with its every nook and cranny.

Weekly Rider: Triangle de Midd, Cornwall, Weybridge

Posted on July 22, 2011 | Blog Category:
By Andrew Stein



People from across the country consider Addison County a bike Mecca. It’s home to steep climbs, 30-mile rollers and spectacular views. It also presents an extremely varied set of riding options to a wide range of cyclists, from those hammer heads looking to climb multiple mountain gaps to those bikers who haven’t been out in years. One of my favorite shorter rides in the area is what I call the Triangle de Midd, Cornwall, Weybridge.

Length: 10.3 miles

Difficulty: Easy

Batting Around: Juicy

Posted on July 8, 2011 | Blog Category:
By Ian Trombulak



I was eight years old when Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa brought Major League Baseball back to life.

Four years after the 1994 baseball season was cut short by a player strike, America was still trying to rebuild its relationship with its national pastime. But baseball had a lot of work to do — it had, after all, walked out on the country, and you don’t just walk back in and expect everything to be fine again — you have to rebuild trust.

You have to make people believe again.

Batting Around: A bit of perspective will cure your lockout blues

Posted on July 1, 2011 | Blog Category:
By Ian Trombulak



Leave it to the biggest show boaters in professional sports to steal the sports headlines even in their off-season.

The NFL lockout is the most disheartening sports story of the last decade — and possibly the previous one as well. Worse than “(insert star college athlete) receives (insert inappropriate side benefit)” scandals. Worse than officials accepting bribes to tip games. Worse than steroids.

Why? Because it’s never been so blatantly obvious that we, the fans, have been completely forgotten.

Batting Around: Baseball must embrace modern technology

Posted on June 24, 2011 | Blog Category:
By Ian Trombulak



Many professional sports are now openly embracing instant replay technology that allows close calls to be reviewed and, if necessary, corrected. Professional football has even implemented instant replay in the form of a challenge system, which actually adds an element of strategy to the game.
