Teeing Off: Gizmo likes the Hawks
Tuesday was my birthday. I spent most of the day celebrating on the couch with Gizmo. Believe it or not, the pooch has a very comforting face when you are down and out with a cough. After watching a few episodes of “Seinfeld,” Gizzy insisted I turn the channel. Who knew he wasn’t a Cosmo Kramer fan. It didn’t take us long to settle on the NFL Network, where a Game Rewind Seattle marathon was airing. For those not ...

Colony, Kodiak top NLC
A slew of Northern Lights Conference teams participated in tournaments across Alaska. Three-day festivals were held in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Palmer and Kodiak, and I can almost guarantee you the loudest fans were here on the island. I was especially amazed at the fans that attended Saturday’s Joe Floyd/Ravn Alaska Winter Classic Basketball Tournament, but I guess I shouldn’t have been, since I know how much Kodiak...

Bears tip off at Airline Classic
By DEREK CLARKSTON Mirror Writer Before the season, Kodiak boys basketball coach David Anderson predicted three wins in his team’s first 12 games. Kodiak has three games left to get one more W. The Bears enter Alaska’s premier tournament — the Alaska Airlines Classic — with a 2-7 record. It won’t be an easy task for Kodiak to emerge with a win at the tournament dubbed “the high school version of the Great Alaska S...

KHS alumni roundup: Horn returns to Germany
After spending Christmas in Kodiak, Alysa Horn is back on the hardwood in Germany. The former Kodiak High School and University of Alaska star scored a team-high 13 points, but it wasn’t enough as Osnabruck fell to Opladen, 58-55, in a Bundelisga second division women’s professional basketball game Sunday in Germany. Horn hit five of her 11 field goal attempts in 31 minutes. She added five rebounds and one steal. ...

Teeing Off: The Floyd getting in the way of the Hawks
The Joe Floyd/Ravn Alaska Winter Classic Basketball Tournament is a mouth full to say, and write. I’ll simply shorten it to The Floyd. The Floyd has been a holiday tradition in Kodiak since 1972, making it the longest-running high school hoops tournament in the state. This marks my ninth time covering the Emerald Island’s biggest sporting event. I was overwhelmed at first. Try putting together a 16-page program as...

Teeing Off: Johnson should go in as a Mariner
To me, Randy Johnson is the greatest baseball player ever to wear a Seattle Mariners uniform. Yes, there was Ken Griffey Jr., Edgar Martinez, Jay Buhner and Ichiro. But, nobody sported a better mullet than the Big Unit. That is why he gets my vote. There must have been nothing scarier to a hitter than a 6-foot-10 pitcher, with hair flowing from the cap, starring you down. Just ask John Kruk, who got a look at John...

Teeing Off: Gizmo takes aim at playoff predictions
The NFL’s second season starts Saturday with Wild Card Weekend. It also gives Gizmo a chance to redeem himself from a horrible Week 17 performance. The canine must have not been feeling well, as he incorrectly picked all three of his games last week. That dropped his season record to 18-21. Thanks Santa. Gizmo was bouncing with enthusiasm when I laid down the picks in front of him Thursday. Maybe it was just the s...
