Pay homage to the count of baseball

Posted on May 12, 2011 |
By Karl Lindholm



 

ONE, TWO balls; ONE, TWO strikes. ONE out. ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE, SIX innings. I love to count!

Just about my favorite Sesame Street puppet was the Count, dressed as he was in his black cape, ticking off numbers in his thick Transylvanian accent. He helped all four of my children learn to count.

I think the Count could also help young baseball players learn the game.

A man with a message: 'play ball'

Posted on April 14, 2011 |
By Karl Lindholm



 

Charlie is the Messenger — and the message is “Play Ball! Have Fun!”

He loves baseball, knows the game, wants to see it played right, enjoys teaching kids the skills required to play the game. He’s effective at explaining the game’s complicated strategy and structure.

Erin go Bragh slide, Kelly, slide

St. Patrick’s Day: I like it when my day to write this column falls on a holiday.

My first wife was born on St. Patrick’s Day, which made it easy for me to remember her birthday (editor’s note: no ex-wife wisecracks). My second wife’s birthday is Valentine’s Day, which I can also remember, but can’t get dinner reservations.

Rhymes with 'Block:' a real student-athlete

Posted on February 17, 2011 |
By Karl Lindholm



His name rhymes with “block” — and that’s what he does.

Andrew Locke is the stalwart 6’10” senior center for the Middlebury College basketball team, which is enjoying great success again this year. The Panthers have won 21 games against a single loss, and have earned a ranking in the top five NCAA Division III teams in the country.

A relic, a shrine, Hoop Heaven: a gym

Posted on January 20, 2011 |
By Karl Lindholm



What a coincidence!

I was in Maine visiting family last Saturday when the Middlebury basketball teams just happened to be in Lewiston to play against Bates College. So I decided to take in the men’s and women’s games (I actually watched Bates play Williams the night before, too).

Bates plays their basketball games in Alumni Gymnasium. Constructed in 1928, it’s the oldest New England college gym still hosting varsity basketball, and indeed one of the oldest such arenas in the country.

What would Jesus do: Perfect Form

Posted on December 23, 2010 |
By Karl Lindholm



 

What indeed would Jesus do?

Jesus Shuttlesworth, that is. That’s the name of the character Ray Allen plays in the Spike Lee movie, “He Got Game.” It’s a compelling film, especially since the protagonist is played by a basketball player, not an actor. (Those with small hoop-crazed children might wait before ordering — it’s rated R.)

Taking a charge: Tales from the Nam

Posted on November 24, 2010 |
By Karl Lindholm



I hadn’t meant to wait so long to read “Tales from the Nam.”
“Tales from the Nam” is a first-hand look at the life of a “grunt” in the Vietnam War. It’s comprehensive and compelling, authentic, well researched, well remembered, and well recounted.
It was written by Dave Nicholson, my friend and basketball teammate from long ago at Middlebury (“Nick” to all who knew him then), and published in 2008.

McKillop: Best ever? Could be

Posted on October 28, 2010 |
By Karl Lindholm



“Watch this quarterback for us. He may be the best ever,” I instructed Jay Shapiro, class of 1977 at Middlebury (father of Melissa ’13), at the Middlebury-Amherst College football game on Parents’ Weekend this fall.
Skeptical, he asked, “Better than Peter Mackey?”
The next week, Jeff Mackay ’65 came through and I said the same thing to him. He replied, “Better than Charlie Brush?” acknowledging the best of his era.
Is Don McKillop, the Panther quarterback for the past four years, the best ever to play this position in over a century of football at the college?

Summer, fall football: Chill is in the air

Posted on September 30, 2010 |
By Karl Lindholm



We talk about the weather all the time in Vermont because we get so much of it.

Today is the last day in September, our best month. We claim it as autumn, but it’s really still summer, at least the first three weeks. Now, it’s officially fall, and has been for the past week.

September is mild, mostly, but there’s a crispness in the air that suggests the austerity to come. The first frost arrives in September. We start the day in fleeces and sweaters but often shed them by midday.

Put some perspective on sports

Just thinking:

Tiger: What will happen to Tiger Woods?

Two weeks ago, he finished 78th in a field of 80 in the Bridgestone Classic, a tournament he had won four years in a row prior to this year. Earlier in August, he tied for 28th place in the PGA Championship, his second worst showing in a major tournament in 12 years. Last weekend was better, a tie for 12th at the Barclay’s Championship. But still ... Tiger Woods: middle of the pack?
