In the midst of what has been described by multiple media mavens as the NFL’s “worst week,” the league finally reached agreement with its union to start testing for Human Growth Hormone (HGH).
A couple of weeks ago, my daughter asked if I had heard that the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge had started with an afflicted Red Sox fan in front of the Green Monster at Fenway Park. Unfortunately, I told her, I knew all too well.
As I walked out of the Munster locker room in the aftermath of the Mustangs’ victory over Chesterton on Friday night, I overheard Times sportswriter Jim Peters interviewing Mustang running back Dom Lucito by the door. As I passed by, Lucito was explaining he first entered the line-up in 2013…
For the past year or so, local television stations nationwide — two in Indianapolis — have featured news stories about the supposedly scandalous state of football helmets in high schools and junior highs in their coverage areas.
With the school year about to start or already having done so, large numbers of youngsters will be in close proximity. And with that, the chances increase dramatically for the spread of infectious disease.
