We have forgotten who was best -

When it comes to Sectionals Week, all that you think about is basketball. That and movies. They had the Oscars last night, so of course you're gonna think about Leonardo DiCaprio and Cate Blanchett, probably not in that order.
When it comes to movies,
I like a good one.
The bad ones? You can just
give 'em the shit can.
You don't know how many times I've tried to tell the story of Sectionals Week. It's when a whole lotta people in Indiana on really cold nights turn their attention to gymnasiums all over the state. Here, we'll have a couple of really good sectionals - class 4A at East Chicago and class 3A at the Hammond Civic Center. Sometimes, I announce all six or seven games of the East Chicago sectional. That's the plan this week.
Alexis and I got a little taste of East Chicago today. Of the three or four of you who read this blog about My American, Radio Life, maybe one of you knew Dennis Koliboski. He died a few days ago and his brothers held a little get-together after the funeral today at The Goodfellas Club in East Chicago. You come out after a couple of hours of drinking really cold beer in the dark to an oil tank farm and a Super Taco sign. Lock your doors while you're in there. Remember why you're here.
Dennis died at 57. It's just sad. Above is a picture of his golf clubs. Note the Woodman Country Club sign. Rest in Peace, Dennis, in what very well could be that perfectly-manicured fairway in the sky.
You thought I was dead, but I
stunned ya', I stunned ya'
