Roots of the Rose Bowl

December 29, 2018 @ 2:53 PM

You can trace its roots back to 1888 when a congregation of outdoors “people” founded the Pasadena Valley Hunt Club for both men and women. In 1900 the first Rose Parade was presented with a myriad of horse and carriages amid a décor of beautiful flowers prancing through downtown PAS. Fans numbering 2,500 viewed chariot races being held in 1904. We were privy to games played in 1913 by Ostriches, and a race between elephants and camels; the big guys won. In 1922 the Rose Bowl was built for the colossal sum of $272,198. The first College Football game held in the Rose Bowl was in 1923 as the Home Team, USC beat Penn State 14-2. Tons of exciting games and events were held ever since, including the score of Rose Bowl Parades.........

The Effect of Athletes on Us and Our Country

December 4, 2018 @ 8:46 PM

As I was reading about Joe Lewis and his victorious title bout against heavyweight boxing champion Jersey Joe back on this day in sports history, I realized how valued athletes are to this country. They are so huge in our minds we don’t realize it most of the time.

Case in point; in 1935 when Benito Mussolini was the powerful dictator over Fascist Italy, Louis fought former heavyweight champion Primo Carnera who was viewed as Mussolini’s ambassador. In reality this fight had nothing to do with the USA battling Fascist Italy, but in the minds of boxing fans, and frankly even those who weren’t fans of boxing, this was US against them, it was about Joe Lewis, the American battling Carnera and his evil empire.

November 1, 2018 @ 8:27 AM

vote no on 13As many of you may already know, Amendment 13: Voter Control of Gambling in Florida is going to be introduced on the general election ballot come November.

And why is it being introduced now?

The amendment would require anybody who wants to open a casino within the state of Florida to obtain hundreds of thousands of signatures from residents, so that it gets on the ballot and .........

The Georgia Peach

October 4, 2018 @ 1:31 PM

Detroit Tiger Outfielder Tyrus (Ty) Cobb AKA the Georgia Peach collected 12 batting titles in his 24-year career in Major League Baseball. Not know as a home run hitter, Cobbs thinking was getting singles when they drove in runs, or leading off an inning was the better strategy and made the game of baseball much more interesting than a home run hitter. It not clear which he despised more; the end of the Dead Ball era, or the home run slugger Babe Ruth who he felt lowered the standard of the game.

To prove to sports writer that if he so desired he too could belt out the ball he made this prediction to sports editors Sid Keener of St. Louis and Detroit News Sports Editor Harry Salsinger. He told them for the next two days he would only .........

The Old Yankees

April 27, 2018 @ 8:16 PM

new yoru highlandersDid the New York Yankees evolve from the Baltimore Orioles franchise, or did the NY Yanks begin their franchise as the NY Highlanders; both may be true as there are two schools of thought on this. For years I thought the NY Yankees, or the” Yanks” began in 1901 in Baltimore, a precursor if you will to the Baltimore Orioles of today, but now, halleluiah I see the lite.

The Baltimore Orioles of today actually began as the Original Milwaukee Brewers in the Western League which eventually became the American League. They played in Milwaukee from 1894-1901 after which they packed up and moved South- West before the 1902 season to St. Louis and became the Browns. Moving once more they traveled North-East to Baltimore and became the .........

Basketball: From High School to College

College Basketball March Madness

From High School to College

In the Beginning

He was born in Ontario, Canada, designed the football helmet, has the basketball hall of fame named after him and he was a fan at the first College Basketball March Madness Championship, which was played in Northwestern’s Evanston in 1939. Eight months later Dr. James Naismith passed on, but not after inventing the game of basketball. He penned his 13 rules of the game on Dec. 21, 1891 and I heard the original document of basketball rules he dictated to his secretary sold for over two million dollars several years ago.
