Reminiscing:

It was not so much a lonely existence as it was solitary.

During the week, I was surrounded by people, co-workers in the factory, Italians mostly, though we were in the German part of Switzerland in the town of Brugg, 25 kilometers from Zurich, and I could speak neither Italian nor Swiss-German.

I quickly learned the standard greeting, “Gruezi-vol!” and the universal valediction, “Ciao.”

So, on her way to a graduate degree in Music Performance, she got waylaid ... and became a coach instead. She traded in her violin for a whistle:

And now Katharine Perry Delorenzo is Middlebury College’s virtuoso field hockey coach, and her athletes play beautiful music on Kohn Field in the fall.

Karl Lindholm: A legend who 'lifted us all up'

Beams 2 .jpg

An All-American in lacrosse in his senior year at Middlebury College in 1966, Fred Beams was selected to play that year in the North-South Senior Lacrosse All-Star game in Baltimore.

He won the opening faceoff, dashed down the field, unleashed his wicked underhand shot, and scored ... three seconds into the game!

Last Saturday, Fred was inducted into the Middlebury College Hall of Fame with six other Middlebury stalwarts. This ceremony was only the fourth such celebration, as the Panther Hall of Fame was founded in 2014.

Karl Lindholm: Meditations on postseason baseball

Posted on October 25, 2017 |
By Karl Lindholm



Karl Lindholm col russ & karl.jpg

Don’t you just love this time of year — baseball’s post-season: the best teams playing for high stakes, win or go home, big noisy crowds, performances for the ages.

Don’t you just hate the post-season — all that hoopla, the regular season devalued, mere excellence tantamount to failure, the endless rounds of playoffs extending the season interminably.

If not a love/hate relationship to the postseason in sports, I have a powerful ambivalence, almost always overcome by the games themselves.

Karl Lindholm: 'Thank you for your service'

A golf story, more or less:

On the way down to the 13th hole, Buzzell poked me and said, “Watch this. Let’s have some fun. Play along.”

We had been dispatched by the Caddy Master to “relieve” a foursome estimated to be about at the 13th in their round, judging from when their group had teed off.

This was the way it worked. At noon, boys who were available relieved those out on the course for a few holes so they could get some lunch at the “zoo,” the employee dining hall.

Karl Lindholm: Celebrating my reverse bucket list

I was able to check off one of the items on my Sports Bucket List this summer:

I played golf on the Poland Spring Golf Course in Maine with my close childhood friend Johnny Mauro, whom I hadn’t seen in years — and with Gary and Bill who I last saw in high school long ago.

“That’s it?” I can hear you saying to yourself. “Golf in Maine with old buddies? What’s so special about that?”

Karl Lindholm: Spot Poles — great name, great player, great time

Ever hear of Spottswood Poles?

An arresting name, to be sure — and a terrific baseball player in the first half of the game’s segregated era, although hardly a household name among fans of baseball history. 

Known as the “Black Ty Cobb,” Spot Poles played on black teams in the 19-teens and ’20s, the same years that Cobb played in the white major leagues.

Karl Lindholm: Living in John Bower's House

Posted on July 6, 2017 |
By Karl Lindholm



Karl Lindholm col John Bower.jpg

John Bower, generally acknowledged as the greatest American Nordic skier, died on June 6 at age 76. He attended Middlebury College from 1959-63 and coached skiing at Middlebury from 1967-75. When Middlebury decided to honor its athletes with a Hall of Fame, Bower was inducted in the very first class of five alumni in 2013. We reprise today a column about John from 2002 that celebrates his remarkable career in skiing and my serendipitous connection to him. KL
