Announcer preparing for last hurrah

Posted on September 16, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



The Middlebury Union High School football team will play its home opener against Mount Mansfield on Friday night, but the 2-0 Tigers will also close an era.

It’s no secret that longtime announcer Dick Bullock is seriously ill with cancer, to the point he has a checklist of things he would like to accomplish before he checks out.

Bullock has done play-by-play or color work for Tiger football for 33 years in all, many with former partner Ziggy Livingston before Ziggy reached the end zone a few years back.

Watching for trout, actively

Posted on September 9, 2010 |
By Matt Dickerson



I have always been an active angler. I don’t like passive fishing. I like to move when I fish. I like walking or wading, casting and retrieving, going after the fish and not waiting for them to come after me. I like to cover lots of water. I don’t like to just stand around and watch.

That’s one reason I prefer fishing rivers and streams to fishing lakes. It’s also why I prefer fly-fishing and spin fishing to trolling or bait fishing. The first two of these require regular, at times constant, activity: frequent steady motions of the shoulders, arms, hands, legs, eyes.

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?

Vt. angler tests Montana waters

Posted on August 26, 2010 |
By Matt Dickerson



The second thing I noticed about the river was the incredible color of the stones beneath my feet. Though the dominant hues were various — dark and light shades of lavender, violet and magenta — there were also hues of green, blue, gray, yellow, red and brown. Most of the stones were solid colors, ranging in size from a pea or marble to the palm of my hand to a men’s size 15 workboot. But there were striped, mottled and speckled rocks as well.

U.S. soccer upgrade must start in back

Posted on August 19, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



Ah, defense. No, it’s not the Breakfast of Champions, but it’s the essence of champions, the sine qua non, which loosely translates as without it you hit the golf courses early.

We remember Michael Jordan, scoring champion, dunker, unstoppable offensive force.

Too often we forget Michael Jordan, six-time All-NBA First-Team All-Defense, one-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year, the guy who clinched one title by stripping the ball from Karl Malone.

Vermonter tries his luck in Oregon

Posted on August 12, 2010 |
By Matt Dickerson



Marshall Curler was waiting for me at the Portland (Ore.) International Airport when my flight arrived at 11:15 p.m. on the last Thursday of July. We waited the usual time for my luggage. Much as I prefer to travel without checked bags, it’s tough to take a weeklong fishing trip with only carry-on. Waders and wading shoes alone would fill a little rolling duffle. Then I need rods and reels; on a long trip, I travel with two of each in case one breaks. Plus flies and a vest and sleeping bag. And clothes are nice too.

Nats' phenom: Best young pitcher ever?

Posted on August 5, 2010 |
By Karl Lindholm



Twenty-two-year-old Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg is a genuine phenom, whose arrival in baseball has come this summer with unmatched ballyhoo.

His highly anticipated first game this year in the majors on June 8 at Nationals Stadium was a debut beyond expectation: Strasburg struck out 14 batters in seven innings before a sell-out crowd of 40,315, leading the Nats to a 5-2 win over the Pirates.

Lessons for the young outdoor enthusiast

Posted on July 29, 2010 |
By Matt Dickerson



I recently went to a fly-tying workshop at Bristol’s Lawrence Memorial Library. Getting a lesson in tying flies from David Henderson and Bob Reynolds was not only highly enjoyable, it also reminded me of two important outdoor sporting lessons I learned when I was young.

The first was that outdoor sports can be expensive and dangerous. The second, and more important lesson, related to the first, had to do with which of my parents to go to for money and which to go to for permission.

Club makes Long Trail a Vermont gem

Posted on July 22, 2010 |
By Matt Dickerson



One of my favorite summer outdoor pastimes is hiking to the various alpine ponds along Vermont’s Long Trail. These overnight trips combine my enjoyment of backpacking and my passion for fishing, while providing almost enough exercise to burn off the copious quantities of trail food I consume on the hike.

Use of replays limits errors, improves play

Posted on July 15, 2010 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



As the old saying goes, to err is human, to forgive, divine.

But England’s football team probably didn’t feel too divine on the way back from the World Cup after officials botched a call in the Brits’ match vs. Germany, a ruling that denied England a tying goal in a game they would go on to lose.

Lack of divinity was on display when Mexico and Argentina’s footballers nearly came to blows at halftime after Argentina was unfairly allowed to score from an offside position directly in front of Mexico’s net.
