Sports Column by Andy Kirkaldy: Panthers, locals excel at exciting sport with sticks

Posted on November 25, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



It’s funny, field hockey has a reputation as a sport that is constantly being interrupted by whistles.

I thought of that on Sunday afternoon while I sat in front of my computer and watched the Middlebury College team battle Bowdoin for the NCAA Division III title and win, 1-0.  

Many more were probably glued to televisions watching a sport in which every play begins and ends with a whistle, and the athletes have to gather for a committee meeting before they decide what to do next. Yes, that would be football.

Sports Column by Matt Dickerson: Appreciating our autumn harvest

Posted on November 19, 2015 |
By Matt Dickerson



I was at a dinner event this week with about 20 people. We gathered around a large table. As often happens, there were several conversations going on during the meal, and then again after the meal as we mingled in different groups as guests slowly rose and prepared to depart. Two of the conversations I took part in were prompted by very different topics and involved different people, but took an interesting turn toward a common theme.

Karl Lindholm: Baseball in Cuba: More than a sport

Posted on November 11, 2015 |
By Karl Lindholm



Linholm Matanzas stadium color.jpg

Editor’s note: This is the second of a two-part series. Read part one here.

“It could be a train wreck,” was Oscar’s apprehensive assessment.

We were having a late night impromptu discussion of the future of Cuban baseball in Kit Krieger’s 17th-floor room in the Habana Libre Hotel. We had just returned from watching Industriales of Havana defeat Camaguey, 7-1, at Estadio Latinamericano.

Karl Lindholm: Oscar and me and the Cubaballistas

Editor’s note: This is the first of two parts.

I followed Oscar.

He gestured subtly and said, “Come with me.”

We had just been entertained by Victor Mesa, the manager of the Matanzas Cocodrilos, in the clubhouse just a half-hour before his game against Ciego de Avila.

Sports column: A promising ending to the trout season

Posted on October 29, 2015 |
By Matt Dickerson



I stepped through the brush down from the bank into the stream. Though it had been a favorite spot many years earlier, I had not fished this particular stretch of water in a couple years. The long deep pool that used to swirl past boulders was gone, slowly filled in, or shifted by the annual spring scouring. Or perhaps wiped out in a single big flood. But I eyed a decent-looking new run 20 yards upstream of where I stood. I paused a moment, taking in the changes to the stream’s course while I blew on my hands to warm them. Then I waded up the streambed and took a cast.

Sports Column by Matt Dickerson: Fishing for trout in the high desert

Posted on October 15, 2015 |

When I think of Oregon and the Pacific Northwest, I usually have in mind more coastal areas. All but one of my previous visits to Washington or Oregon have been to the western side of the Cascade Mountains: to Seattle, Portland, the Willamette Valley, or to some little city along the Oregon coast.

Sports column by Karl Lindholm: Red Sox season ends; wait'll next year!

Posted on October 8, 2015 |
By Karl Lindholm



Sunday, October 4, last day of baseball’s regular season:

“It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone.” — A. Bartlett Giamatti

Sports column by Matt Dickerson: Dangers of fishing (in the lower 48)

Posted on October 1, 2015 |
By Matt Dickerson



My good friend Dave was recently hit by a flying boat while walleye fishing in South Dakota.

Getting hit by a flying boat was probably not on Dave’s list of dangers to avoid while fishing. He and I spent the summer teaching and traveling together in Alaska. As the adults responsible for the safety of nine college students, we had a long list of potential dangers associated with fishing and spending time on the waters of Alaska. We worked hard to minimize and mitigate them. But we were aware of them.

Sports column by Andy Kirkaldy: Fall schedule posing challenge to Independent

Posted on September 23, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



So, please be patient with photographer Trent Campbell and me.

We are doing our best to show up at your team’s games this fall, really. But it’s been difficult.

To start with, many local high school sports teams have opened on the road. For example, two teams we haven’t seen yet, Mount Abraham and Middlebury field hockey, played four of their first five and five of their first six games, respectively, away from their home turf.

Those other two games? Wednesdays.

Sports column by Mattthew Dickerson: Finding water

Posted on September 17, 2015 |
By Matthew Dickerson



My wife and I have been celebrating milestones lately — by which I mean opportunities to be more aware of my increasing age. Two summers ago our oldest son graduated from college, got engaged and declared his fiscal independence. Last summer we hit the point where we had been married for half our lives. This summer our oldest son got married, our middle son spent his first summer away from home, our youngest graduated from high school, and we crossed the barrier of having lived in Vermont for half of our lives.
