Manning best at what he does

Karl Terry

When Denver’s quarterback takes the field in Sunday’s Super Bowl he’ll be jumping around, flailing his arms and slapping his players around like he’s hopped up on Mt. Dew. Nope, it’s just another day in the backfield with Peyton Manning. We had audible plays or check-offs back when I played sandlot football but they were […]

Olympic dreams may be deferred

For some of us who look forward to the Winter Olympics, it could be said, as the opening lines to Tale of Two Cities claim, ” It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” It is the best of times because the games for which we have waited for quite a […]

Let’s talk comfort colors

With all the variety of colors, patterns or prints there are to choose from, many of us will only wear the same pool of colors we are the most comfortable in. For example, my boss wears a black shirt and khaki tan colored pants most days so when he came into work the other day […]

Best to just argue about foul calls

Wendel Sloan

I asked the Rev. Dag Sewell, a noon-time hoops friend and graduate of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, what seminary students are taught about seeming biblical contradictions.
