Lots of dead time in July

 I struggle this time of year. I really do. It’s not from a lack of sleep, or a lack of things to do. It’s not from a lack of sunshine, the vitamin D getting into my system, or whatever.
No, I struggle because right now there’s not a lot of sports out there that I pay attention to.
I barely watched the College World Series for the first time ever. Coastal who? I’m not into NASCAR. I can’t stand to watch golf or tennis. And don’t get me started on soccer. A bunch of guys or gals running back and forth on my TV screen I can do without.
There are the occasional K.C. Royals innings that I watch, but again, I won’t sit through an entire ball game. Where’s Johnny Queto when you need him?
I know it’s only early July, but I’m ready for NFL training camps to open. I’m ready to leave work a little early and head to Husker volleyball matches, and I’m ready to go watch year two of Riley’s Huskers.

Reliving the glory days of pole vaulting

I couldn’t tell if it was 2016 or 1996 on Saturday during the A’ROR’N Days Street Vault in the courthouse parking lot.
For those who were in attendnce, they received a blast from the past that was surely one of the highlights of the weekend, at least it was for me.

Seniors win, lose by narrow margin

The Aurora Seniors Legion either win by a run, or lose by a run. Either way, you’ll never be bored at a Seniors game.
“We have had seven one-run games, including the last four leading into this week’s schedule,” Seniors coach Rick Kissack commented.

Let the kid be an athlete

We oftentimes get too wrapped up in the good or the bad in sports. Especially when it’s your hometown team or favorite athlete, things can easily be blown out of proportion, whether it’s a winning streak or an injury.
Austin Allen, arguably Nebraska’s most famous high school athlete right now, suffered a setback to his athletic career over a week ago, tearing his meniscus in the right knee, an injury that required surgery in Lincoln Thursday night.
For those of you I just broke the news to, Allen hurt his knee coming down for a rebound in a Aurora team camp basketball game against Beatrice.
