A few things to ramble on about

CORBIN — It’s been a while since I just cut loose with a few random ramblings, so with that said, here goes!

First and foremost, I know the World Series hasn’t been over for long, but I miss baseball already.

It’s always been my favorite sport to watch, so I suppose it’s only natural that as soon as the season is over, I’m the first one to start the countdown to spring training.

You would think that since I’m a Cubs fan and the season is usually over on a competitive level by the end of April, I wouldn’t be so quick to wish for the season to start back so soon.

The fact of the matter is the Cubs are improving and their farm system is as good as it has been in a long time. I know the thought of a positive Cubs future doesn’t help fans as the end of another sorry season has come and gone, but as a Cubs fan I’ve become an eternal optimist.

• Hoops season is almost here

It’s hard to believe, but in just a little less than a month, the high school basketball season will be under way in Kentucky.

How do I know this? Because we’ve been as busy as bees around here getting our basketball preview questionnaires sent out to Tri-County coaches.

As usual, we’ll release our basketball preview right around Thanksgiving so fans can get the inside scoop on our local teams and a rundown of what to expect in the 13th Region.

The most exciting part of this basketball season to me is the fact that the 13th Region Tournament will return to The Arena here in Corbin. If you look on the bright side, at least having some basketball games will knock the dust off the old place when February rolls around.
