Miracles aren’t just something reserved for religion. They are a real thing in sports, whether you choose to believe that or not. We might not be talking miracles on the level of Jesus turning water into wine or raising Lazarus from the dead, but miracles are as real as this column in the sports world.

So much is made of being the best athlete. Of being the best scorer, the best quarterback, the best hitter, the best golfer. And look, sports stars are great. They are entertaining to watch because of what they can do in their particular sport.

It’s been maybe 20 years now since I covered a high school baseball championship series in another state. Some of the memories are a blur. Others are lost forever. I’m pretty sure the team I covered won the title, but what I remember for certain is that it was a unique set up in that a best of three format was used to determine a champion.

Politicians could learn a thing or two from sports. And they could learn a thing or two sooner rather than later. In sports, there is no fighting over which party is right or wrong and we don’t ever hear stories of an athlete not being qualified to play a certain position on the field or court because of his or her political affiliation.

Father’s Day hits differently when your dad is no longer with you. I lost my dad last spring, and this will be the second year in a row where I won’t be able to call him, send him a card or take a trip home to see him like I did four years ago, which happened to be the last Father’s Day weekend we spent together.

More basketball courts. That’s what Navarre needs. Not more Dollar Generals. Not more storage units. Not more gas stations. We have enough of those.
