KRL has always been a big supporter of local sports teams, and many of us here are hockey fans. Fresno is lucky to have it’s own hockey team, the Fresno Monsters. We took some time to interview their Head Coach/General Manager Bryce Dale.

A loss is a loss, and Reedley College football coach Randy Whited will tell you that as well, but the takeaway truth from Saturday’s 28-24 loss to Hartnell College is that the Tigers are back – back to the level of performance and expectation we haven’t seen in several years.

They’ve teased us with their potential. They’ve frustrated us with several last minute losses. But now I can officially say – the 2014 Reedley College football team is one of the most exciting and talented squads I’ve seen in the past twenty years.

Most football coaches will tell you they don’t believe in moral victories. Reedley College football Coach Randy Whited may or may not be in that particular group, but he has to be somewhat pleased with the way his team fought and fought before finally surrendering to Fresno City College 49-44 Saturday night in Fresno.

I’m not one to complain (don’t ask the editor about that, please), but Reedley College’s football team is getting a bit predictable. For the third straight week, the Tigers fell behind, and then rallied to take a late lead. The difference this last Saturday night was the Tigers snuffed out a late rally by Gavilan and won the game 44-33, to even their season record at 2-2.

One of the fun things about attending a sporting event is not knowing the outcome ahead of time. But Saturday night at Reedley High School Stadium, the fans not only didn’t know the outcome beforehand, they didn’t know the final score on their way out, either, after an inexcusable blunder by the game officials left a black cloud hanging over the entire event.

It’s that time of year again. When the smell of spring is in the air I get all excited waiting to hear those first cracks of the major league baseball bats. The weather might still be a bit unpredictable but rain or shine the baseball season starts the first week in April. There are maybe a dozen major league players that I like to watch, and I cheer the demise of a few teams I consider rivals to my hometown boys, but there’s only one yummy treat I think about when it comes to baseball. Cracker Jacks.
