Teeing Off: Baseball is a game of firsts
Halloween came early at the Clarkston apartment. While everybody was sleeping early Tuesday morning, Gizmo trick-or-treated the garbage can. I didn’t see how generous the garbage can was, but his mom did. I got a full report, via text message, when I woke up hours after she discovered the mess. Turns out the garbage can was handing out spaghetti squash seeds, and Gizmo loved it. I caught him going back for seconds...

Teeing Off: Half of the World Series is set
The “Amazin” Mets are back in the World Series. The last time New York played in the big show was in 2000. Benny Agbayani was on that team. Why do I bring that up? Agbayani played at Hawaii Pacific University, and I was a freshman at HPU in 2000. I don’t remember the university making a big deal about it, but I don’t remember many things from college. The Mets swept the Chicago Cubs in the National League Champion...

TEEING OFF: Soaking up the playoffs
The 2015 Major League Baseball playoffs have been thoroughly entertaining. So much so that getting work done has been nearly impossible. I got absolutely nothing accomplished during a 53-minute window Wednesday afternoon. Game 5 of the American League Divisional Series between Toronto and Texas was the best non-Seattle baseball game I have seen. Of course, the best game that I have ever seen goes to the 1995 ALDS ...

Jacalyn Gross didn’t hear about the KMXT-FM Run the Rock event until Friday evening. And there she was, a day later, at the Bear Valley Golf Course obliterating the women’s 5-kilometer course record. Gross finished with the speedy time of 17 minutes, 56 seconds, crushing Jaymi Bethea’s 2010 record by 55 seconds. “I missed my workout this week, so I decided I would do the 5K,” said Gross, who was the only lady to f...
