Karl Lindholm: Don & Jerry, Curt Gowdy, 'Balee Baloo,' and my Mom

Posted on September 10, 2015 |
By Karl Lindholm



karl lindholm.jpg

My mother almost ruined me for sports.

When I was just a kid, eight or ten or so, I was listening to a Red Sox game on the radio at home, and the Red Sox unloaded on an opposing pitcher, scoring a bunch of runs, and driving the poor guy from the game.

I exulted, casting aspersions no doubt on the other team and its woeful pitcher: “Hit the showers, you bum!” I said, or some other such churlish comment.

Sports Column: Post from Alaska part 4 - Trout, tundra and the arctic

Posted on September 3, 2015 |
By Matt Dickerson



Dickerson.png

It was late evening. I’d been in leaky waders all day and didn’t want to put them on again. So I was standing barefoot, knee-deep in the icy waters of an arctic river flowing across tundra toward the Chukchi Sea. My shins and ankles ached. My feet were numb. But at the moment, I was not aware of the pain. My heart was pumping with adrenaline because I’d just seen that the big fish at the end of my fly line was not another chum salmon, but my first ever sea-run Dolly Varden trout.

Karl Lindholm: It was old – and then it was new

Posted on August 13, 2015 |
By Karl Lindholm



Lindholms at game.jpg

I had forgotten just how much fun it is to go to a professional baseball game in Burlington. I used to go all the time, but age, obligation, and habit combined to change my summer routines. I became less keen to drive up Route 7 to Centennial Field (and back!) night after night.

The first few years the Expos were here (they arrived in 1994), we had season tickets and came to as many games as we could, giving away our tickets to Middlebury friends when we were otherwise obliged.

Another thought or two on soccer and the Red Sox

Posted on July 30, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



A few thoughts on soccer and the sorry state of the Sox, left behind in Vermont while the author lounges on the beaches of southern New England (or in movie theaters, depending on the weather).

First, one last visit to the women’s soccer World Cup. A lot of credit for the U.S. team’s late surge was given to the tactical switch in the formation that allowed Carli Lloyd more offensive freedom, and no doubt that played a role in the successful Cup run.

Matt Dickerson provides posts from Alaska Part 1: The Yurts

Dickerson Yurt column9773.jpg

“I want to stay in a yurt.”

That’s what my wife Deborah told me. The comment did not come out of the blue. Two years ago I went on a research trip to Alaska. It was the summer of the graduation of my oldest son, Thomas, from Saint Michael’s College. So I added a week to the end of my research trip, and took Thomas with me as his graduation present. We backpacked, fished, biked, and saw Dahl’s sheep. We also went on a three-night sea-kayaking trip in Kachemak Bay near Homer, and stayed in a yurt at Right Beach.

Karl Lindholm: Ubiquitous announcer-man: Dave Sears

Posted on July 15, 2015 |
By Karl Lindholm



Editor’s note: Local sports figure Dave Sears died on Saturday at the age of 56 (see obituary on Page 6A). In February 2007, sports columnist Karl Lindholm offered this perspective on Dave’s generous, gregarious nature, and his powerful engagement in the community.

Every time I turn around I bump into Dave Sears. The man is everywhere. I think there must be three or four of him.

Matt Dickerson: Fishing brings people together

Posted on July 2, 2015 |
By Matt Dickerson



I am often amazed at the connections that happen through fishing.  Indeed, “connections” is too sterile a word. They can be profoundly serendipitous, community-building, and often lifelong. 

Fishing is about connections. The most obvious one is between human and fish.

A classic blessing among anglers is “tight lines”—a quick way of saying, “may you often find yourself connected to a fish.”
