Charlie's Inside Corner: When Baseball was King

In the 1940's and 1950's baseball was King in the United States. The NFL had yet to reach the fan base it has today and professional basketball was a curiosity that was dominated by a few eastern cities. Baseball was the attention-getter for those interested in sports and it wasn't just professional baseball because amateur baseball was played in most every city and country town. It was especially true in central and western Kansas.

Charlie's Inside Corner: Hitting Singles

A quick perusal of the PGA Top Ten rankings shows how far Tiger Woods has slipped. You will make note that I used his complete name, not just Tiger. His one-word-name does not call for instant recognition anymore. Mr. Woods is nowhere to be found in the rankings. Rory McIlroy is the leader, followed by Jason Day. About the only other recognizable name to the average duffer is that of Jordan Spieth, the Masters Winner. Otherwise, most would be hard pressed to name a top-ten golfer.

Charlie's Inside Corner: FIFA scandal

For something to be a scandal doesn't it have to be shocking? Doesn't it have to be surprising? That the leaders of FIFA, the governing body of worldwide soccer have been indicted for racketeering and bribery and money laundering certainly doesn't qualify then. There is nothing shocking or surprising about it. In fact, haven't we all said, "Ho hum, what else is new?"
