(NICHOLASVILLE, Ky.) – Competing with a major championship across the pond is no small feat. You would think that with the British Open being played simultaneously at Carnoustie’s Championship Course in Scotland, the Barbasol Championship — played in little old Nicholasville, Kentucky — would be struggling to attract big name talent. That certainly has not been the case. Continue reading McDaniel “Chips” in at Barbasol Debut—By John Huang→

(NICHOLASVILLE, Ky) – Anyone who has ever tried to play the game of golf knows that it really is a good walk spoiled. Unless you’re the Golden Bear, or the Great White Shark, or the Big Easy, or the Walrus, or the King, you’ve undoubtedly been repeatedly traumatized by the ever-lurking water hazards, sand traps, and narrow fairways lining the links. Just like you, I’ve been there and done that. What I haven’t done yet is to cover a professional golf tournament—and all that’s about to change as the fourth annual Barbasol Championship rolls into Keene Trace Golf Club. It’ll be the first PGA TOUR tournament (excluding majors) to be held in Kentucky since the Kentucky Derby Open was played in Louisville from 1957-59. For those keeping score, that’s a long time ago—over a decade and a half before Tiger Woods was even born. Continue reading PGA Golf Returns to Kentucky—By John Huang→
(JACKSON, Ky.) – In the annals of UK Sports history, Adolph Rupp sits indisputably at the kingdom throne of the Big Blue Nation. The Baron of the Bluegrass, with his recognizable balding pate and heralded nasal twang, was instrumental in the coronation of the Kentucky program as the greatest tradition in the history of college basketball. Life-long Wildcat fans, together with future die-hard generations to come, owe much of their current and ensuing glory to the basketball genius of the man in the brown suit.

The one great thing about minor league baseball is that every opening day truly signals a new beginning. It’s out with the old and in with the new. Nowhere does this apply more than with the Lexington Legends. The hometown affiliate of the Kansas City Royals stunk up the league last year finishing in next to last place in the Southern Division with a disappointing 62-75 record. In fact, they’ve been fairly putrid for the past several years, so I’m always looking for signs of change–morsels of hope that things have finally turned around and success is just around the corner.Continue reading Lexington Legends – A Legendary Start—By John Huang→

(CINCINNATI, Oh.) – For the 2017 regular season finale in Paul Brown Stadium, Detroit came in like a lion and went out like a lamb. Cincinnati’s surprise 26-17 upset victory was small consolation to a train wreck of a Bengals campaign that started with high hopes but ended with sordid dismay. Not only do the Bengals miss the playoffs for the second consecutive year, they end up with potentially only six wins while alienating most of their fan base with disappointingly lackluster play. The Marvin Lewis era has mercifully run its course in the Queen City, and providentially, I was on hand to witness his likely swan song. That didn’t stop Marvin from being markedly upbeat.Continue reading Out Like a Lamb—By John Huang→

(CINCINNATI, Oh.) — Last Monday night’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers was like a punch to the Bengals’ solar plexus. As Chris Boswell’s 43-yard field goal sailed through the uprights, a discernably audible gasp could be heard circulating throughout the environs of Paul Brown Stadium and beyond. Not only did the Bengals lose, they lost in spectacularly sordid fashion—blowing a 17-0 lead by committing a franchise record of 173 yards in penalties. Although not mathematically eliminated from playoff consideration, the gasp you heard was the Bengals’ hopes for post-season play escaping from the soul of their perennially disheartened fan base.
