  1. It's June 22

    It was a sad day...
  2. My initial guess was that if you were looking for the widest range of success/failure between football/basketball, Chatard might provide that Grand Canyonesque type gap...though they won a State Basketball Championship in 2003 and Record 13th State Football Championship in 2013. That said...as a Franklin County guy....it seemed unfair to even consider Chatard in the same sentence in Franklin County who has always been irrelevant in Basketball (which they take GREAT pride in their non-existent success in) and many years ago competitive in Football.
  3. It's June 22

    Sadly, I bantered (a bit aggressively) withTim just a few days before he passed (though I generally always agreed with him). I think he was at the last Center Grove 7 on 7 in 2010 that very weekend. I was there as well...my LAST Center Grove 7 on 7. I had no idea that it was this date....but then, with no kids playing anymore you kind of lose track. Still, may God Bless you Mr. Adams (admittedly a bit hypocritical coming from me). You have added so much for so many. Certainly you have for me.
  4. Some think (people I PAY attention to....since I am a "maroon") that the '03 team was the the greatest team ever at Chatard and could have competed at any level in Indiana HS football. I had the privilege of coaching a couple of future NFL players from 3rd grade to 6th grade at St. Matt's from '01-04 there. Thankfully, they were not influenced by anything I ever had to say. There were like 4-5 Top 50 Indiana HS Football kids (All Classes)during that period as well....most being linemen - most going to Chatard during that period. A ton of All-State players in 3A (Chatard) and 4A (Cathedral) as well. One or two in that mix were HS All-Americans in other sports as well. Talented group. Ironically....they never won City. Coach N - those Chatard kids were competing EVERY year at St. Joe camp to secure starting jobs which they generally would hold season long. It was pretty brutal internally...and probably pretty difficult for any team playing against them at camp. Pads or not, those kids were generally going all out at St. Joe...there was a potential State Champion starting job (and maybe an All-State designation) every play at St. Joe for most all of those kids at stake. St. Joe was some pretty SERIOUS business for those kids. BTW, Kellison was also "2018 City Athlete of the Year (Indianapolis)" as I understand it. Also, another kid that slipped under this radar screen was Eric Deitchman. 2011 City Athlete of the Year and one awfully mean lineman (Top 50 All Classes 2010).
  5. Way too close to home

    Per DT's logic (which he seems to be walking WAAAAAY back....), it would seem to be Obama World as well. That said, Trump simply seemed to stand up for the Constitution (NO Big Trump fan here, btw...for the record). I am kind of, marginally (apparently in the minority), a fan of the Constitution, though. So many on the Left seem seem not to be a fan these days. For the record, those great folks on the Left (USSR and China) have somehow found themselves "missing" of more citizens than anyone in the last 118 years. Literally 100s of millions...Hitler would be jealous. Nobody has the body count of the Left....yet they somehow "love" us and are just trying to do the right thing in slaughtering those who just can"t get along. God bless them. One would think the Gulag or Animal Farm would have made the point... Back to the point, the Second Amendment was about protection from the government as much as self-protection from some stupid robber..been robbed...btw. Actually we were robbed back in 2010 the very day of the Chatard/Hamilton Heights Regional game...my youngest was home sick and was terrorized that day (he hid in a closet)...wished I had a gun (or shotgun) and had trained my Jr. High son how to deal with the robbery. Kid has been scarred by it..to this day. We need to figure out how we can protect schools (believe me). That said, the several 100,000 under 20 year old kids who fought and died for this Constitution and the Second Amendment over the last 200 years...greatly outweigh the tragic news of the day. We lose 33,000 people per year in car accidents...yet we are so anxious to give up a Constitutional right that, although. are tragic (newsmaking) numbers represent a literal a fraction of that. Are we prepared to dump the Constitution for the news of the day? We never were before...but then we didn't have Facebook, Twitter,etc. This is the most important generation ever...just ask them. They won our freedom vs. the Brits (on a videogame) and they beat the NAZIs (also on a videogame). They are just awesome. Truly, they need to run the world.
  6. Way too close to home

    Seriously? So your response above to a post referencing a high school shooting is "Business as usual in TrumpWorld" and then you say in almost the same breathe - "I don't see anyone bashing Trump here". I didn't realize one could compact that much dishonesty in such a short form. I don't own a gun....never have. I have never shot a gun. I certainly don't "love" guns. I do, though, care just as much about the Second Amendment as the First. That apparently, makes me "amoral" according to your great logic or (through some sort of convoluted thinking) distantly responsible for HS shootings. Bear in mind, I also like the First Amendment and have no issue with you using it like a drunken 16 year old behind the wheel of a car.... as you have done above. Does tolerating outright and obvious dishonesty on the written page (per your scribblings above) in defense of the First Amendment also make me "amoral"? Does it make me a co-conspirator in your assault against logic and intellectual honesty?
  7. Way too close to home

    Agreed insofar as this is a subject that should find itself on the OOB page.
  8. Way too close to home

    Its always been amoral. When did you become that naive?
  9. Way too close to home

    Not sure about all the crazy shooters. The only one I know about definitively was the dude that shot up the Republican congressmen...he was a "Resistance" dude (Democrat). It just sounds so "Che Guevaraish" to say 'Resistance"....makes you one of the cool kids. Still, it's all Trump's fault...somehow. Its the upside down world we live in. Nonetheless, an awful thing. I understand the teacher who intervened was an-ex football player from Southern Illinois University.
  10. Miss going to this. No players from my house these days. Fun event! That said, Chatard didn't exactly tear it up back then with their passing game...maybe a bit different these days. Lineman, though, were pretty solid...then and now.
  11. If you add elementary and Jr. high School as well: Zack Martin Nick Martin Ted Karras They all played for St. Matthew's Elementary and Jr. High. Nick and Ted played the same years. Admittedly, Ted played for the cursed Irish in HS and later for the cursed Patriots. Still, love the kid.
  12. Most usually. Hopefully I am not offending you personally.
  13. Yeah...that is basically what I said. I just deferred from the word "stupid". We all know where "Stupid" starts or ends up.....poor as a church mouse. Are you somehow constitutionally disposed to be disagreeable with me for disagreements sake?
  14. Not a gambler. Never bought a lotto. Many years ago, I represented both of the lobbyists (both, likely, retired or dead...its been 25+ years...I was just a kid then) representing the out of state companies who were bidding for the Indiana lotto in finding them locations (should they be chosen). Everything I had read was that the State Lotto was basically a tax on the poor...pretty much evidenced to me to this day when standing in line at the Village Pantry. Ironically, both of those lobbyists were hardcore Democrats (they controlled the appropriate State bodies at the time) and were friends of the poor and downtrodden...excepting when they could make 7 figures to represent the winning State Lotto company profiting on the backs of the poor and downtrodden (Hey, we all have a price, I guess....I think mine was about $8,500 on that deal...which we won). That said, having been involved in the great State money grab and the political hypocrisy, I just don't gamble. Even so, somebody wants to pay me to represent any form of legal gambling, sign me up...I will take the money...like I did years ago. There is a fool born every minute. Doesn't matter much to me whether they are rich or poor.
