Second Thoughts: Rebuilding the Flyers will take some time

Posted: 9 days ago

The Cavaliers are bad, Ric Flair is sad and Jerry Jones is mad. I’m glad that we’re in that awesome part of the sports calendar where we get huge college football games and great made-for-TV nonconference college basketball matchups. Enjoy. The Dayton Flyers are in rebuilding mode — on the court and at UD Arena. It&rsquo...
Second Thoughts: Series shows why you can’t put baseball on the clock

Posted: 23 days ago

Might have to break down and turn on the furnace. We always try to make it to Halloween before cranking up the thermostat, but my fingers are about frozen as I type this sentence. The heat coming off the TV during the Ohio State-Penn State game did help, though. My kids were delighted that Game 1 of the World Series whizzed by faster than...
Second Thoughts: Don’t look now, but the NBA season is starting

10:37 PM Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017

As football players get more acrobatic, I’m struggling with what’s a touchdown and what isn’t. Why is it a touchdown if the football, held by a guy diving out of bounds, barely brushes the inside of the pylon? The pylon is out of bounds. Somebody get Mike Pereira on the phone. The NBA tips off this week, earlier than usual...
Second Thoughts: Is there another eclipse? Bengals and Browns both win
 A record 6,104 home runs were hit this baseball season and MLB pitchers are keeping their shrinks busy. It should come as no surprise, then, that the Twins hit two homers in the top of the first inning in the very first playoff game. And lost. The Bengals and Browns both are at home Sunday, and I predict both Ohio teams will win. No, I didn&rsquo...

Taking a knee during anthem isn’t the answer for NFL players

4:00 AM Saturday, Sep. 30, 2017

Peyton Manning has set a record for most TV commercials by a sports celebrity. That’s by my unofficial count. The current Nationwide spot he does with Brad Paisley is hilarious. “Almost there. Almost.” I’m trying to keep an open mind about kneeling knuckleheads who have decided to make spectacles of themselves during...
The Bengals will score a touchdown … probably
 Apple has rolled out the red carpet for its new iPhone, which costs about a thousand dollars. This “phone” reportedly has a bunch of amazing features. I wouldn’t know since I use a sleek iPhone 5c. Unless this new model can spit out a great cheeseburger, I’m not interested. I tuned in a few minutes late for the Bengals-Texans...

Second Thoughts: Bengals, Browns will fight for last in AFC North
 I’m on Day 4 of my five-day Football’s Back celebration, which I’ll top off with Tennessee-Georgia Tech on Monday night. Heck, I’m feeling so good that I might even look for a replay of the Fairmont-Alter game. Bring it on. Let’s see: Bengals bad boy Vontaze Burfict is suspended. Check. The Browns have a new...

Second Thoughts: Buckeyes begin march to the big trophy
 I stopped at Kroger to pick up a few items, including coffee — always coffee, Jill lectures — and I did a double-take. They have Halloween junk all over the place. A check of my iPhone confirmed that it is August. When’s the Thanksgiving stuff come out? Halloween, Thanksgiving … well this week is Christmas. College...

Second Thoughts: Votto acting like an MVP, on and off the field
 About this eclipse … I don’t need any of you staring at the sun like it’s Erin Andrews working the sidelines at a play-in game at UD Arena. You know what I’m talking about. I need your eyes intact so you can keep reading this column. College tuition isn’t getting cheaper! I’ve been a critic of Joey Votto...

Second Thoughts: Will Elliott answer NFL’s wakeup call?
 Football is back. High school teams take to the fields Friday night for their preseason scrimmages. To you boys lucky enough to play on natural grass in late August and early September, thank your athletic directors and school boards for not buying into the Field Turf hype. I believe Roger Goodell figures a four-game suspension for Ezekiel...

Second Thoughts: Another disgusting chapter in the life of Pete Rose
 I took Jill to the Celtic Festival last week. It was a nice event in downtown Dayton. There was good music, tasty food and overpriced draft beer. Had a great time. Didn’t see any Lakers fans, though. Pete Rose will never get a bronze plaque in Cooperstown, but he has secured his spot in the Sleaze Hall of Fame. First ballot all the...

NFL players compete in the ultimate risk-reward game

7:16 PM Saturday, Jul. 29, 2017

I wrote a couple weeks ago that the future looked promising for the Reds. That is why I don’t bet on sports (unless I happen to be in Las Vegas). I am so sorry for getting your hopes up, Reds fans. Hey, smile, football is almost here. John Urschel retired from football last week at age 26. His decision, in the wake of the latest CTE...
Second Thoughts: Baseball isn’t speed dating, so sit back and relax

7:51 PM Saturday, Jul. 15, 2017

We ate lunch Friday at a place north of Columbus called Average Joe’s Taphouse. Unfortunately, the food was, well, average. More disappointing was the fact that the place didn’t offer dodge ball. I was looking forward to reliving my elementary school P.E. glory days. I don’t understand the hand-wringing over the length of...
Second Thoughts: Home Run Derby steals All-Star spotlight

8:31 PM Saturday, Jul. 08, 2017

I had two tasty Nathan’s hot dogs for lunch Saturday. I resisted the urge to dip the buns in water and demand that Jill put 70 more dogs on the grill. Obviously, I’ve got some work to do to catch up to Joey Chestnut. What is with that guy? He’s not even fat. The Home Run Derby is sure to set ratings records Monday night...
Second Thoughts: Go after Pitino, but Louisville’s banner should stay
 Happy Father’s Day to all you dads. Grace, my youngest, said Friday that she was “making” my present. The kid’s a great cook, so I enjoyed a piece of coconut cream pie. Today, I’m going to grill a steak, watch some of the U.S. Open and have a cold beverage on the back porch. Perfect. The NCAA is right to hammer...

Second Thoughts: Wright State athletics should get chance to prosper
 I’m in West Palm Beach this weekend, watching my son play baseball and hanging out at Mar-a-Lago. Well, I’m watching baseball. I’ll tweet out something if I see the president or any FBI guys. It has rained a lot down here so I won’t be chasing foul balls. Lots of standing water, which in my mind means one thing: alligators...

Second Thoughts: NBA Finals look like another playoff air ball

3:28 PM Saturday, Jun. 03, 2017

Dat Dude BP looks strange in a Braves uniform. Too bad Brandon Phillips couldn’t play out his career in Cincinnati, where the fans adored him. He tried to give back in his return to GABP on Friday, going 0-for-5. Nice of him to try to help his old team. We can try to talk ourselves into believing the NBA Finals will be competitive....
Second Thoughts: LeBron needs to get physical in quest for immortality

7:32 PM Saturday, May. 27, 2017

The Memorial Day forecast is looking good, so enjoy the holiday and pause to think about why you don’t have to go to work on Monday. I also suggest a trip to the meat counter at Dot’s Market. That is the recipe to a great cookout. I’m already sick of the LeBron vs. MJ debate. The NBA Finals haven’t even tipped off...
Second Thoughts: At UD Arena, it’s out with the old, in with the new

8:32 PM Saturday, May. 13, 2017

I did some shopping at Dick’s Sporting Goods at the Dayton Mall last week. Saw a guy in the car next to mine get busted. A police officer approached him politely, asked for ID, then said, “I smell weed.” Not sure what the guy said, but it wasn’t, “Hey, I’m here to use this coupon for athletic socks.&rdquo...
Second Thoughts: Why stop at Hamilton vs. Ross?
 The dozens of fans who braved Friday’s late-night Reds-Giants game looked miserable. I don’t think I would’ve gone even if someone had offered me a pair of Big Baller basketball shoes and a kayak to use on that new downtown river feature. Billy Hamilton vs. John Ross. A race between these two speedsters is the kind of entertainment...
