Milan Museum

first_imgA couple from Indianapolis traveled to Milan in hopes of seeing the gymnasium in which the ’54 Indians played their games.  They were quickly informed that the old gymnasium had been razed.  However, they were directed to the museum.  Since they had traveled to Milan specifically to see remnants of the ’54 Indians, they thought “why not”.  While at the museum they were amazed at the items that are now on display.The museum has obtained the complete 1954 tournament bracket depicting Milan’s trip to the state championship.  They visited some of the old lockers, watched a film of the game, and they were amazed that Bobby Plump and his teammates actually held the ball  for 4 minutes.Younger kids do not understand what holding the ball meant in that era of basketball.  They are familiar with teams only being able to hold the ball until a shot clock goes off.  The game today has lower scoring for other reasons that do not include simply standing and holding the ball.  We already have discussed that in other Huddle Ups.Just like this couple from Indianapolis, you will be amazed at what has been gathered in this museum on Carr Street.  It would definitely be worth your while to stop in and see it some time.last_img read more

Shelbyville Graduate

first_imgDaniel Kuhn graduated from Shelbyville High School and planned to play baseball for Trine University.  Andrew Poore of IU knew that Kuhn had won the IHSAA’s state track 800m run in 1’50.9″ last year.  He convinced Kuhn to sign a letter of intent to run track for the Hoosiers.  Kuhn has now dropped his 800m time under 1’50” and his 400m time to 47″.  This is pretty good for a baseball player!You might ask why I am writing this article for a Huddle Up in Batesville.  Daniel Kuhn is the nephew of Batesville’s Larry Montgomery.  In a recent  conversation with Ted Hartshorn, Ted relayed this information to me.  Larry’s daughter, Gina, ran track and cross country for me while at Batesville High School as did her husband, Chuck Brinkman.  Evidently, the running genes are in the Montgomery family heritage.Larry was a former running pal of Ted Hartshorn.last_img read more

Read More7 Things That Actually Ruin Your Phone Tammy Abraham has revealed the moral dilemma facing Premier League ­players. The Chelsea striker admitted he is desperate to get his season up and running again, but watching the news and his own family’s health fears leaves him wondering. Loading… Chelsea players ­had their own group chat on Thursday about the latest Project Restart plans to resume the season. And Abraham said: “We are humans. We do have feelings as well. It’s tough. I’m watching Sky News every day, waiting for Boris Johnson to make an ­announcement. “We’re following what’s going on in the world and trying to see if it’s safe or not to go back to football. The most important thing is for everyone to stay well and healthy. “Everyone wants to come back to football. I love football. I was having a great season and I would love it to continue, but when it’s safe to do so. “The most ­important thing is to make sure the world is getting better for football to come back. If football can come back in a safe world, then by all means…” Chelsea players have been training remotely by video link but also having group chats about the prospect of going back. English football is weeks behind Germany but is facing big decisions in the coming days, with finances and livelihoods at stake. “We had a chat in a live ­session about a week ago, about coming back to football, and there were a lot of people for it and a lot of people against. Tammy Abraham admits asthma-suffering dad has left him fearing Premier League return“I feel it will always be that way. I just want to be safe and healthy,” he said. “I don’t feel like it’s ­rushing. Germany have planned it out well. The coronavirus has not been as big as it’s been in England. I feel they’re going the right way. “Whatever ­decisions they make are for a good cause. If they bring back the ­Premier League then it’s clearly safe enough to do so. If they don’t then it’s clearly not. “As players, we’ve just got to be patient and keep waiting for the clubs, the Premier League, the Government and everyone to come to an agreement.” Abraham has admitted his concerns for his dad Anthony – an asthma sufferer – but even that has brought its own mixed feelings. Government confirm the Premier League can return in June – and call for free-to-air matches. They have been watching the Netflix ­documentary series The Last Dance, about Michael Jordan’s final season at the Chicago Bulls, and his dad used that as the reason to return. He said: “I’ve got his full ­support for going back. He’s one of my biggest fans. “My parents are always there, and he spoke to me at breakfast and said: ‘You watched the ­Jordan thing, I know you’re ­motivated to go back to football, when you are ready just go out there and do the best you can.’” Abraham has been keeping fit with a ‘tech table’ playing against his brother Timmy – on loan at Bristol Rovers – as well as ­enjoying his mum’s cooking as the family are in lockdown. He has not had the virus but had to self-isolate after Callum Hudson-Odoi tested positive. But that Netflix series has kept the 22-year-old entertained – and inspired. He added: “It’s ­incredible, just to see how sportsmen can be so motivated and be so driven to be the best.

Watching this just motivates me. “There’s one thing that caught my mind. He lost a game and made up things in his head of what someone said to him, and found out that person didn’t ­actually say it! But he used it to go out into the next game, to drive him into being the best.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 last_img read more
