Tom's Take on Sports


A day or random Halloween thoughts...

As I write is Halloween-- trick or treating evening... otherwise known as the holiday that keeps dentists in business.  It has not been a "Thriller" of a football season for Knox County teams, but basketball is not far behind.  But in honor of Michael Jackson's top selling of all time ode to Halloween... I will use some MJ titles to give some random thoughts...

"Remember the Time"... The last time the Boston Red Sox won a World Series at Fenway Park was in 1918.  Babe Ruth was pitching for the Sox in the "dead ball" era when they won that title.  The Black Sox scandal was a year away, and Fenway Park was only six years old... not a gracefully aging 101 as it is now. 

"Don't Stop Til You Get Enough"-- That is the Colts' mantra.  They have created quite the resume this year, with wins over the Seahawks, Broncos, and 49ers, among others.  They get into NFC South territory this Sunday, when the Houston Texans are on the menu.  The Colts hope a lot of skill... and a little Luck... will lead to victory...

"Off the Wall"-- My psyche.  The teams I broadcast it seems get the worst tournament draw luck...

"P.Y.T."-- Girls' sports across the area.  A good year for many teams-- the North Knox volleyballers win their first title since 2000; another great year for Rivet girls' golf; and back to volleyball, good years (again) for Loogootee and Barr-Reeve...

"Thriller"-- The North Knox-Perry Central game last Friday at NKHS.  The Warriors lost the game-- but it was a classic... a close game between two high quality teams.  Like the team I broadcast, I don't like going out in the first round, but the game lived up to expectations-- and exceeded them.

And Finally....

"Dangerous"-- all four Knox County basketball teams look to be decently strong this year.  This could be a great basketball season this year...

                                                             That's my take...I'm Tom Lee.
