BANGOR – Seven years, seven championship games.

That’s the legacy of the Downtown with Rich Kimball team in the annual Wayne’s Wiffle for a Wish wiffleball tournament. The event – created and organized by Wayne Harvey as a fundraiser for the Make A Wish Foundation – marked its 10th year on Aug. 18. It’s a wonderful event that has raised nearly $100,000 for a remarkable cause over the past decade.

But we’re here to talk about the legendary run of Downtown.

The Sports Edge The most wonderful time

The recent cool, damp weekend was a friendly reminder that the dog days of summer will soon be making way for fall and everything that goes with that in Maine. Some tend to view the autumn as a harbinger of what follows; I prefer to take a deep breath of that chilly morning air and celebrate what I think of as the best our state has to offer.

The Sports Edge - Waning Moments

It's too easy to take potshots at this year's incarnation of the Olympics Games. The Zika, the air and water pollution, the body parts washing up on shore - the punchlines are there to be had for even the worst late-night staff writer. And I have long held the opinion that the Olympics are the longest running and most boring reality television series in the history.

Say it ain't so, Tom

The Tom Brady saga appears to finally be over, ending not with a bang but with a whimper.

The future Hall of Famer opted to take his four game vacation and move on with his life, perhaps understanding that as time went on, this case became less about him and more about the ongoing power struggle between the commissioner's office and the NFL Players Association.

Sports as a microcosm of society at age 9

Several weeks ago, I shared some memories of summers in the days before youth sports exploded into a nearly mandatory way of life and I had a great response from people who remembered, as the great sports fan Barbra Streisand sang, 'the way we were.'

The G.O.A.T.

It has been several days since the man known as 'The Greatest of All Time' shuffled off this mortal coil, when his broken body finally gave out in an Arizona hospital. As we've seen in the worldwide reaction, that physical end did nothing to kill the spirit of the larger-than-life phenomenon that was Muhammad Ali.
