It seems like at least once a year I address the issue of how parents’ involvement in high school and youth sports has crossed the line and often provides a sad commentary on the times we live in. I did not plan on bringing that up today until a co-worker sent me an article which detailed how some of the most successful coaches in central New York have resigned or been forced out by over-the-top parents.
I don’t pretend to me some kind of fashion expert but thanks to my wife and some common sense I have a decent idea of what looks good and what does not, especially when it comes to coordinating colors.
The National Anthem has been front and center more than ever in recent weeks, ever since San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick decided to sit during the playing of it before a pre-season game. The issue has spilled over to college and high school games.
Welcome to the first full week of the season when all 43 football-playing schools in the Shore Conference take the field not only worrying about the team on the other side but things like heat exhaustion, dehydration and muscle cramps.
I was as guilty as anyone who made it sound like Labor Day weekend was the final one of summer. Yes unofficially we consider that the end of the summer “season” as schools are now open and in terms of vacationers or visitors most of them are gone. However as you will feel today summer is still very much here in terms of weather and this time of year is often a favorite of those who live here.
Welcome back to those of you whose listening habits change during the summer when school is not in session. I clearly missed you more than you missed me and I’m glad we’ll be once again sharing this time every morning.
These past few days were not especially good ones for meteorologists like our own Dan Zarrow as the Tropical Storm named Hermine did not live up to what was forecasted for the Jersey Shore.Dan and dozens of others have been the brunt of jokes, ripped on social media and blamed for the cancellation of outdoor plans that could have taken place. It would be easy to pile on but I won’t do that. Well, not exactly.
There is one consolation to the end of summer: the start of football season. Football is by far my favorite sport and while the NFL waits until next week college and high school football get underway this weekend.
