Sports column by Andy Kirkaldy: Extra thoughts on Sunday's super broadcast

Posted on February 7, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Call this the Super Bowl leftovers column. I don’t mean the quesadillas and guacamole I pulled out of the Kenmore for Monday lunch, but a few random afterthoughts about the game and broadcast. If I find my writing momentum stalling, I’ll go into a dark room for half an hour and try to regroup.

Outdoor column by Matt Dickerson: Pursuit of trout in a surprising spot

Posted on January 31, 2013 |
By Matt Dickerson



DickersonIMGP3365.JPG

If I had been asked a few months ago to name the state with the largest chapter of Trout Unlimited, my first few guesses would have been the classic fly-fishing and trout states of Montana, Idaho or Wyoming. If I had been reminded of the low population densities of those states, I might have instead guessed Colorado (and some river in the Denver area) or Michigan (with its famous trout streams not too far north of Detroit) or even California or Oregon. Or perhaps Maine. Or New York.

Indeed, there are many other states I would have guessed before I landed on Texas.

Sports Column: Acts and lies – It’s not about the bike

Posted on January 24, 2013 |
By David Lindholm



David Lindholm at work.jpg

Note from Karl Lindholm, whose column normally appears in this space: I intended to write this month about Lance Armstrong and his disgrace, exploring the issues of sin, confession, forgiveness, and redemption. My son David was a great admirer of Armstrong some years ago, so I wrote to him and asked for a comment I could use in my column.

Some comment. Here’s what he wrote back to me.

Outdoors column by Matt Dickerson: On delight and being outdoors

Posted on January 17, 2013 |
By Matt Dickerson



My wife and I love the way that certain animals play. She is especially fond of ravens, and delights to read accounts or watch videos of their frolicking. They have been known to sled on their bellies and wings down snowy hills, or repeatedly fly over big chimneys in the winter and tumble head-over-wing in the updraft. They seem also to like playing tricks on people, even when the trick has no practical advantage to them.

Sports Column by Andy Kirkaldy: Authority figures show bad side of pro sports

Posted on January 10, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Every now and then the stupid side of sports is fully displayed.

This past weekend was such a time, and in more ways than one.

Let’s start with first things first. Word broke late on Friday that the National Hockey League owners and players had resolved their labor dispute after 113 days, and by Sunday it was confirmed.

It’s not that the resolution was unwelcome news, it’s that the words “labor dispute” are used kindly. It was all the owners and commissioner Gary Bettman’s fault.

Sports Column: Wishing coaches the best of three out of four greats

Posted on December 27, 2012 |
By Karl Lindolm



Before every season, Middlebury Union High School Activities Director Sean Farrell asks all boys and girls aspiring to be on teams that season and their parents and coaches to attend an organizational meeting at the high school.

We meet first as a group in the gym and then in individual team meetings. Coaches introduce themselves and their athletic philosophy and address relevant practical concerns.

I have two children at MUHS who enjoy sports so I have attended 11 of these meetings so far, and likely have five more coming up.

Dickerson outdoor column: Of hobbits, the outdoors and love of Christmas

Posted on December 20, 2012 |
By Matt Dickerson



This past weekend I watched Peter Jackson’s latest spectacle, “The Hobbit.” Though the film revels in violent action, and in that way is very different from Tolkien’s classic book of the same name, the book and film do have a few things in common.
