Steve Hanlon Column
FRANKLIN | Don't you get tired of turning on ESPN's SportsCenter a lot? The same old police blotter updates from spoiled, overpaid athletes who treat the average Joe like dirt and belittle those in the stands.
INDIANAPOLIS | It was January. It was cold outside. It was even frostier inside the home of Portage's Lauren Murray. Deep pain and doubts about the future were one thing.
PORTAGE | In looking at the 2013 state softball media package, there is something different, trending among the eight programs that will fight for state championships today.
CEDAR LAKE | Larry McMillen is like the absent-minded professor of region softball. His resume is like bin Laden, hard to find, perhaps hidden in some cave somewhere.
Lonnie Johnson had a tough decision in middle school. He felt like his future hung in the balance. His choice could determine it all.
In recent years I've made bold, cocky predictions about how the region softball teams would do in the postseason. I've picked three or four teams getting to Indianapolis in the past, and I've been right.
This weekend, while many of us are in long lines looking to purchase chocolate hearts, candied roses and cards written by some stranger in the Philippines, or we stand in line for three hours on Sunday to have an hour-long lunch, Diane and Morgan Cavinder will be doing Mother's Day weekend o…
MUNSTER | I am not a politician. Nor do I play one on television.
In 1977 Lisa Sanchez walked into East Chicago Washington as a semi-lost ninth-grader. The 5-foot-1 youngster had never before dribbled or shot a basketball.
For all you knuckle-draggers crawling out of your caves, here is a sentence for you. And for all you Nike-wearing troglodytes, this applies to you, too.
About 11 or 12 years ago, when I was writing for the Indianapolis Star, I got a call that got my blood boiling.
All good things must come to an end, a famous philosopher once said. And rightly so, I must add.
INDIANAPOLIS | It's not like the complaints and harsh words about Bowman Academy's boys basketball program have been stated in a vacuum.
GARY | It's like Michelangelo doing graffiti on an old wall at a Gary gas station that went out of business six years ago. Or Bob Dylan singing a remake of a Katy Perry ditty.
HUNTINGTON | It's a question that's been asked for the past 103 years. Philosophy and Hoosier Hysteria have gone hand-in-hand since the high school tournament began.
There's something special, even loveable, about Hoosier Hysteria. This craziness has been selling tickets for 103 years. Many people have timed their lives by this tourney.
It shouldn't be a shock that there is a strong connection between the best basketball players in Northwest Indiana. Summer hoops has been bringing people together for a long time.
UNION TWP. | It's been going on for 103 years. A century-plus of the same thing.
GARY | The legacy of high school basketball in Gary doesn't have a close second.
KOUTS | Here's hoping my GPS is right on this one.
