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.

A boy of summer

We're still in that part of spring where it's as likely to be a raw, windy 38 degrees as it is to be sunny and 70 but it won't be long until summer is here, offering youngsters of our state the days of leisure they've been dreaming about for months.

Thanks for the presents

It's the week before Christmas and writers everywhere are busily putting together the most hackneyed of columns. You know it, right? The one where they list what their favorite teams, players and coaches might want for Christmas? Not that I'm above clichd writing, but I thought I would at least attempt to go a different route.

Instead, I'd like to celebrate the gifts we Maine sports fans have already been given. We're pretty lucky to live in an area that has a passion for sports, both local and regional, and our interest has been rewarded with an abundance of great teams, memorable players and talented coaches. This week we say thanks for just a few:

Days of Turkey Bowls past

I've always been a fan of Thanksgiving, perhaps even secretly thinking of it as my favorite, though putting it ahead of Christmas might be considered blasphemous in a country where stores put wreaths up in late September. Part of my love of the day has always been the relatively low-stress nature of this particular celebration. No lists of presents to buy, no wrapping, no crowded stores - and best of all, no Thanksgiving music.

Fans or phantoms?

Let me start by telling you that I am completely biased regarding my subject this week. This is a column about University of Maine football, and I am the play-by-play broadcaster for that team and have been for over 15 years. During that run of over 175 games, I've seen some of the greatest moments in team history. As a matter of fact, among the recently-compiled list of 'Top Ten Maine Football Moments,' I've been behind the microphone for seven of them. I've also witnessed some colossal low points, from heartbreaking losses to jaw-dropping blunders. The point is, I've got a dog in this fight, but I also feel eminently qualified to talk about Maine football, being one of an incredibly small group of people (me, color analyst Bob Lucy, equipment manager Steve Jones and Coach Jack Cosgrove) to have seen every game since 1997.
