Pick up any sports section or read any blog or article online and you’re bound to come to a simple conclusion: Sports is a business.
And what are businesses about? Money. So if sports are a business and business is about money then it could be said that sports are about money.

Despite loss, US should be proud

World Cup
samr@lakevillejournal.com

In professional sports, winning is everything. Teams like the Yankees put forth expectations for themselves that attribute any season that ends in something less than a championship as a complete failure. Winning is the only yardstick by which professional teams are measured by fans, the media and the teams themselves. As a sports fan, I completely agreed with this notion. That is until the 2014 World Cup.

A cub reporter meets his hero, Pedro Martinez, at Cooperstown

This is the second part of an article that began in the June 26 Millerton News about the reporter’s visit to Cooperstown and the Baseball Hall of Fame. There, he had the opportunity to interview one of his baseball heroes.
As I walked into the interview room, I began to rethink my being there. What could I possibly ask these players? I’m a brand-new sports reporter, I’ve never interviewed a professional athlete and the last thing I wanted was to get laughed at by someone I’d revered my entire life for asking a stupid question.

Dreams actually do come true at Cooperstown

Memorial Day weekend marked the unofficial start of summer. After nearly six months of being cooped up inside, people were breaking out the grills and coolers, and heading to the beach, lake or backyard to enjoy being outside with family and friends.
This Memorial Day weekend presented a unique and amazing opportunity for me. Instead of lazing on a boat in the middle of the lake for three days, I had the opportunity to travel to Coopers­town, N.Y., to the Baseball Hall of Fame (BHOF).

Dreams come true at Cooperstown

samr@lakevillejournal.com

This Memorial Day weekend presented a unique and amazing opportunity for me. I traveled to Coopers­town, N.Y., to the Baseball Hall of Fame (BHOF).
For the sixth consecutive year, the BHOF was holding its Cooperstown Memorial Day Classic, an exhibition home-run derby and baseball game featuring retired players from each Major League team. As a journalist, I was able to get media credentials for the event; I jumped at the chance to experience baseball history.

At Animal Swap and Bake Sale, no lamb cakes but plenty of poultry

cynthiah@lakevillejournal.com

AMENIA — How could I — a city girl who now lives in the country — resist the opportunity to go to an Animal Swap and Bake Sale at the Tractor Supply at Freshtown Plaza on Route 22?
I got there nice and early on Saturday morning, June 8, thinking the parking lot would be like a Middle Eastern bazaar, overflowing with baby lambs, baby goats, bunnies, chickens, perhaps a horse or donkey — and, of course, muffins, cookies and brownies. Perhaps there would even be a lamb cake, like the ones my mother used to make, baked in a copper mold.
