Nothing better than small-town sports

October 29, 2014

There’s just something magical about being from a small town.
When I was growing up, I really didn’t care for it much because everyone knew everyone and there were very few surprises. But once I left and lived in more populated areas, I came to realize how important the small town atmosphere is.
Nowhere is that more evident than in the realm of sports. There are six schools in this area, and all of them are known for their sports teams.
If you are out and about in this state and you mention you are from Malvern, you will inevitably have someone ask you about the Leopards.

The role of the band in sports

October 29, 2014

A band can be one of the most important aspects in home field advantage for a football team — when it is done right.
As anyone who has attended a big-time game can attest to, the band is crucial for keeping the spirits of the home crowd up during the slower moments of the game, such as time outs and quarter breaks (not to mention the long halftimes).
In my years covering sports, I have seen all sorts of bands, at both football and basketball games. I’ve seen them perform well, and I’ve seen some bands that left me wondering why they were even there.
