Sports column by Karl Lindholm: Dancing in the streets

Posted on November 20, 2013 |
By Karl Lindholm



The Lions are in!

On Sunday, the Indomitable Lions, Cameroon’s national football team, defeated Tunisia 4-1 in a knockout game at Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo, here in Yaounde. So Cameroon will be going to the Really Big Dance in Brazil next June, la Coupe du Monde.

They were dancing in the streets in Yaounde. The World Cup is a very big deal here, and just about everywhere else in the world too.

Sports column by Andy Kirkaldy: Championship teams blend chemistry and talent

Posted on November 7, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



In the past two weeks I’ve heard and read a lot about team character and chemistry. It’s always struck me as an athlete and an observer the intangibles matter, and for sure three recent teams have done nothing to change my mind.

Sports column by Karl Lindholm: Johnny America meets the Internet

Posted on October 23, 2013 |
By Karl Lindholm



The summer of my 21st year, a long time ago, I worked in a machine factory in a small town in Switzerland, about 20 miles from Zurich.

I had worked the previous eight summers at a golf course in Maine, and I was ready for a change, an adventure, something independent.

My co-workers at the factory accepted me as a curiosity. We all wore the same blue common-laborer jumpsuit. For many, I was the first American they had ever known.

Sports column by Matt Dickerson: Fishing and fall foliage

Posted on October 17, 2013 |
By Matt Dickerson



I have often thought — and said aloud — that a bad autumn for Vermont foliage is better than a great autumn anywhere else. Which is another way of saying that there is no such thing as bad foliage here. Even on those Octobers when we spoiled Vermonters complain that “the colors are dull this year,” our wooded hillsides are still quite beautiful.

The same might be said about fishing. Some say “a bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work.” I say simply that there is no such thing as a bad day of fishing.

Sports column by Andy Kirkaldy: No matter what's next, Red Sox have done plenty

Posted on October 10, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



I will readily admit to being grumpy when Jose Lobaton’s home run sailed over the fence in Tampa Bay’s miserable excuse for a baseball park on Monday night.

It would have been great to see the Boston Red Sox sweep the Rays and get plenty of rest before the American League Championship Series, or ALCS (an abbreviation that sounds uncomfortably like a disease).

But it wasn’t meant to be, and I just clicked off the TV before Lobaton lumbered all the way around the bases, and I went to bed.

Outdoor column by Matt Dickerson: Glacier blues and maple reds

Dickerson sports col bw Banff.jpg

I first visited Banff National Park in 1985. I was 22, traveling with my parents, an older brother and his wife and two-year-old daughter, and one younger brother. We were working our way down the Rockies from a family reunion in British Columbia to the wedding in Boulder, Colo., of our other brother.

Sports column by Karl Lindholm: Impossible Dream II – Red Sox surprise fans everywhere

Posted on September 26, 2013 |
By Karl Lindholm



It happened once before, a long time ago.

In the summer of 1966, the Red Sox were a bad team. They finished in ninth place with 72 wins and 90 losses, 26 games behind Baltimore, who won the AL pennant and then swept the Dodgers in the Series.

The following year, as many will recall, was the so-called “Impossible Dream” season. With new manager Dick Williams barking orders and Carl Yastrzemski playing out of his mind, the Red Sox were 92-70, won the AL pennant, and took the Cards to seven games in the World Series.

Sports column by Matt Dickerson: The life of a Vermont game warden

Posted on September 19, 2013 |
By Matt Dickerson



When New Haven native Wes Butler graduated in 2010 from Paul Smith’s College, he had no intention of becoming a game warden. He earned a bachelor’s degree in fish and wildlife science in order to become a wildlife biologist. He concentrated on the wildlife half rather than the fisheries half for fear that a career in fisheries might spoil his lifelong passion for angling. But the most important thing was to be on the biology side of management, and not on the law enforcement side.
