Karl Lindholm: Pete Rose and the Hall: Do it if you must, just get it over with

Posted on May 6, 2015 |
By Karl Lindholm



I am not Pete Rose’s biggest fan.

Actually I can’t stand the man. He’s repulsive.

Go ahead. Reinstate him, put him in the Hall of Fame, and be over with it. Just do it. I’ll get used to it.

Pete was a great player, more or less, and deserves to be in, I guess. He’s not as great as he and his supporters think: his most celebrated attribute was superfluous hustle — sprinting to first on a walk, sliding head-first.

Andy Kirkaldy: Boston Marathoners were inspiring in so many ways

Posted on April 22, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Kirkaldy Klippings_474.jpg

To start with, the Boston Marathon wheelchair racers who whip by first are absolute, astonishing beasts who must train for the event by ripping phone books in half. They couldn’t be more impressive. It’s also hard to imagine they make it 26.2 miles through eight Massachusetts towns without crashing — they ride six or eight inches behind each other, taking turns carving though the air, a practice fans of motor sports know as drafting.

Karl Lindholm: All that dough for a baseball class?

Posted on April 8, 2015 |
By Karl Lindholm



I was sitting in Sama’s, near the rear, with my back to the door, drinking coffee and grading papers, hard-copy, the old-fashioned way.

My neighbor entered, sat down opposite me, and asked me what I was doing.

“Reading student papers. I’m teaching a course this spring,” I explained. “I get to teach one a year in retirement.”

“So,” my neighbor asked, “what course?”

“A baseball class. It’s called, “Segregation in America: Baseball’s Negro Leagues.”

Outdoor column: Grand Canyon and small humans

Dickerson Grand Canyon col6331.JPG

From time to time something happens that puts into perspective not just my own life and achievements, but the scale of human accomplishment in general. Usually the thing that “happens” is nature.

 This past week my wife, Deborah, and I visited the south rim of the Grand Canyon for the first time. It is difficult to describe that first impression, walking down toward the edge and seeing the breathtaking vista begin to open up before us.

Kirkaldy: VPA system needs to be overhauled

Posted on March 25, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Until a few years ago, the Vermont Principals’ Association endorsed a straightforward system for seeding playoff teams in its four divisions.

Teams were awarded more points for winning against teams in higher divisions or on the road, and fewer points for winning against teams in lower divisions or at home.

For instance, if Division II Vergennes won a basketball game at D-I Champlain Valley Union, it would earn six points. The same win at home would earn five.

Matt Dickerson: More than sports played outdoors

Posted on March 19, 2015 |
By Matt Dickerson



“Just what is an outdoor sport, anyway?”

That is the question I am often asked when people discover that I am a famous outdoor sports columnist. Which is to say, if I ever become a famous outdoor sports columnist, I imagine somebody might ask me that question.  Indeed, I spent a great deal of time imagining the questions my devoted fans will one day ask me if I ever have any devoted fans. Do I use steroids? Have I ever blood-doped? How long before I retire?

Therefore, I thought it would be prudent to prepare a few answers. Just in case.

Kirkaldy: VPA alignment system needs to be overhauled

Posted on March 4, 2015 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



In the past 20 years, there are three times teams in what the Vermont Principals’ Association calls its core sports have won Division I titles despite a distinct disadvantage — they were neither among the 13 largest schools in D-I, nor were they private schools who, whether they will admit it or not, recruit athletes.

Those sports are boys’ and girls’ soccer and basketball, baseball and softball. Among those six sports during those 20 years, there were 120 titles up for grabs, one in each sport per year.
