Karl Lindholm: Habits of right living — whither football?

karl lindholm column pic of Milt Lindholm.jpg

This week, I'm not-watching football because... I'm done. The cognitive dissonance it requires to pretend that it's fun to watch awful people having awful things done to their bodies to enrich other awful people is just too much to bear.

That’s a comment made recently by a Facebook friend.

Karl Lindholm: Thoughts on golf and presidents

Posted on September 24, 2014 |
By Karl Lindholm



Word is that our basketball-playing President Obama has fallen in love with golf.

He tries to get out on the golf course once a week. He says that playing golf makes him feel “almost normal; ... it’s the only time I’m outside.”

His critics find this diversion unseemly, charging that he is fiddling while Rome burns. The Tea Party site Obamagolfcounter.com tracks how many rounds he has played while in office. At last view, it registered 192.

Karl Lindholm: A tribute to a Yankee star at the end of the line

Posted on July 30, 2014 |
By Karl Lindholm



Here’s to my favorite Yankee — 40 years old and nearly at the end of the line.

What a fabulous career, over 20 years playing at the highest level of pro baseball, always performing with great skill and consistency, both as a hitter (over 3,000 hits, a lifetime batting average over .300) and in the field (winning Gold Gloves for defensive excellence). He is likely a first ballot Hall of Famer a few years hence.

Karl Lindholm column go cameroon.JPG

Editor’s note: Since last August, our columnist has been filing his stories from Cameroon, West Africa.

At the end of the movie “The Color of Money,” a rejuvenated, if middle-age, “Fast Eddie” Felson (Paul Newman), pronounces triumphantly, “I’m back!”

That’s me, sort of. After 10 months in Africa, I’m here to announce tentatively: “I’m back?”

Editor’s note: Our columnist has been spending this year in Cameroon, West Africa.

I had a good day on Good Friday, last month: I played golf.

I hope to play one more time before I come home to Vermont in late June.

There are four golf courses in all of Cameroon, this in a country of 22.5 million people, covering 183,000 square miles, in an area slightly larger than California.

Karl Lindholm: Hoop in Cameroon Part 2 — The City Game

For the past three weekends, Richard, Valentine, and I have been undertaking a bit of light hoop anthropology, visiting the outdoor basketball courts scattered about the city here in Yaounde.

Editor’s note: Independent sports columnist Karl Lindholm is filing his reports this year from Yaounde, Cameroon, West Africa.

There I was, last Saturday morning, sitting in a small grove at the Rain Forest International School (RFIS), at an all-day girls’ soccer and boys’ basketball tournament. The day was hot and muggy, and I was glad to be in the shade.

Lindholm: I never missed one from the stands

Posted on December 18, 2013 |
By Karl Lindholm



Ted Williams was wrong. Hitting a baseball is not the hardest task in sports. Reffing a basketball game is.

A few years back, I made a foolish decision. I agreed to become a basketball referee — not a real ref, a certified official, but far worse. I agreed to officiate games in the Middlebury Adult Men’s League in which I had played for nearly 15 years.

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.
