This is the time of year, everyone with a pulse puts out a mock NFL draft. Some do more than one. I’ve got to admit, I do a bunch of them myself.
Well, here we are, a week past Easter, and the opening of trout season the day before.
It has probably one of the largest memberships of any sportspersons club in Washington County and is one of the best-kept trout fishing spots for opening day. I should know for I have been a member there since 1960. I am usually found on the grounds at least once a week all year long.
You can expect to see the Steelers back at Saint Vincent College at the end of July. Or at least that’s the hope of the team moving forward.
Defense, pitching and fundamental offensive baseball were the staples of Fran Celaschi’s Charleroi High School program for many seasons.
Occasionally, I discover an article in the Observer-Reporter that attracts special attention. Last week, one such article jumped out at me. It was the article that stated commissioners Diane Irey Vaughan and Nick Sherman were involved in the passage of a bill that would make Washington Count…
This afternoon I was sitting in the kitchen browsing through my Observer-Reporter newspaper when my son-in-law, Mike, walked through. He was on his way to his part time job as caretaker at Camp Agape, the beautiful church camp in Hickory. That’s when he said something that brought joy to my …
Well, that crisis was averted.
Sixty years ago, Fort Cherry did what no other basketball team from Washington County had ever done.
For the most part, the WPIAL’s boys and girls basketball teams have made it to the end of the regular season. There are a few non-section games remaining to be played this week, and some league games tonight could shuffle the standings, but any regular-season game still to be played will hav…
“He was there for the birth of the Bentworth High School wrestling program. He was there when no one else was. He was there when no one else cared. He was there to agonize over all the losses, all the frustration, all the pain. For 15 years, Tom Teagarden was there for – as he would say – th…
It’s been a busy week for the Steelers despite nothing really happening.
I guess you could say that the firearm company I am talking about would fall into the third-place spot among the shooting fraternity. It has consistently held that third place over many years. I am talking today about the Ruger line of guns.
The world lost a great football coach this past week when Marty Schottenheimer died. It lost an even better person.
It’s not unusual for the bull to fly when hunters and anglers get together. Anglers will be arguing the merit of their favorite bass or trout lure while hunters and target shooters will be arguing guns and cartridges
Bound and determined.
With the temporary closing of the Gun Show at Arden and now the closing of the annual sportsman show at the Washington Crown Center, things have been a little depressing around here lately. So that’s why I thought I’d write about something good that has been happening.
Over the course of the season, there have been a lot of doomsday predictions regarding the 2021 NFL salary cap.
This week has been a little boring what with being shut in the house because of Covid-19. It used to be on these cold snowy days that I could still go out and scout for deer or take walks in the fresh snow. But these days it seems I am trapped indoors. Time seems to go faster while I move sl…
Last week, my readers read excerpts from an old article of mine callws “Ronnie’s Dumplings” first published in 1976 in the Pennsylvania Game News. This week I’d like to continue the story telling of what makes hunting such a pleasure to me.
I have heard described as “meat hungry” persons whose whole pleasure supposedly comes from the kill. They’re supposed to be blood thirsty egotists who must prove their superiority over that which they seek. Is that what hunting is all about? I doubt it.
A lot of the focus on the Steelers’ issues over the past month or so have been on the team’s lack of a running game, and certainly that has been part of the problem.
This week was the last week of the regular deer season. Usually after deer season, I start to think about the gun show at Arden, which normally gets me through an otherwise very boring time of the year. Every year the gun show is a big draw in our area. The crowds are unbelievable. People fl…
The Steelers were due for a stinker. I mean a real stinker.
I can’t help but marvel at the beauty of the earth. It’s that time of winter with its bright white snow and crisp air. It is hunting season so for us who hunt, we are outdoors. The opportunity to spend time in nature is always good.
Often, a person gets what he or she deserves. This is true in everyday life and carries over to hunting and fishing.
“We’re not trying to go 16-0. We’re trying to win a Lombardi Trophy.”
Forget the critics, Steelers have chance to match '72 Dolphins
