Karl Lindholm: Noon hoops and howling at the moon

Posted on June 9, 2016 |

I begged my kids to come to Middlebury sporting events with me.

When a dad takes his kids to a game, he’s a good dad. If he goes by himself and leaves the kids at home, he’s borderline selfish.

Karl Lindholm: Travels with Missy: 'While you can still do it'

Karl Lindholm col on Missy Foote - cmyk NZ.jpg

In just my second year at Middlebury College, 1977, I visited old friend Russ Reilly in the field house. Russ was newly arrived to coach basketball at the college.

He introduced me to another new coach, a 24-year-old woman, Carson Lessels, who had come to Middlebury to lead the swimming and women’s basketball teams.

Russ coached basketball for 20 years and served as athletic director for nine more before retiring. Carson went on to coach at Middlebury for 38 years before she retired last spring.

It was just a short putt, about a foot and a half.

“Is that a ‘gimme?’” I asked.

“I’ll give you a gimme,” Chick replied, “if you gimme a gotcha.”

“What’s a gotcha?”

“You don’t want to know,” he said.

There were no gimmes when you played golf with Chick. No mulligans either.

MIDDLEBURY — On Saturday, April 9, more than 400 people gathered in Mead Chapel at Middlebury College to acknowledge the life of Andy McCabe and celebrate his love of family, friends, the outdoors, wine, and soccer in a service at once poignant and hilarious, full of tears and laughter. McCabe died unexpectedly on April 2 at age 54.

Karl Lindholm: Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee

Muhammad Ali was a dancer.

He danced in the ring, light as a feather, sticking and moving, bobbing and weaving, avoiding blows, floating as if on air, stinging his earth-bound plodding adversaries, mere mortals, beating them up, knocking them down and out, in a world of hurt.

Ironic, isn’t it. Such grace of movement, such beauty of physical expression really, in service to violence and pain. Ali wanted to knock you out: his end, his purpose, was your end.

Our young athletes learn more about sports, themselves, and life from playing pond hockey, pick-up basketball or soccer than they ever could from being on an organized team with refs, coaches, uniforms and whistles.

Clippings by Karl Lindholm: Doctor Baseball sings a bedtime song

Boring. Same thing, year after year.

For nearly 10 years, I have offered the same item for the service auction at our church:

Go to a Lake Monsters Game in Burlington with Doctor Baseball”: four people, everything included — a ride to and from the game, tickets, program, hot dog/beer, pretentious inside-baseball conversation.

The minimum bid is $100. The actual value: “Priceless.”

That’s me, “Doctor Baseball.”

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.

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.
