  • EXTRA INNINGS: Olympics, outdoor games hurt NHL

    THERE’S A REASON why professional hockey is again only the sixth most popular sport in this year’s survey of the annual Harris Poll that asks fans ages 18 and over about their favorite sport.
    The NFL leads (35 percent), followed by major-league baseball (14), college football, (11) auto racing (7), and the NBA (6). Hockey comes in at five percent, just two percent ahead of college basketball.
    Although hockey’s “playoffs” began last Wednesday, the playoffs are, in reality, the start of the “regular season,” which drags on for two intolerable months in which more than half of the teams participate.

  • THE CHECKERED FLAG: April should bring welcome return of local racing

    MOTHER NATURE’S last stronghold on winter may slowly be releasing her grip as the calendar changes to April and racing begins to get under way throughout the region. 
    Locally, nothing has happened yet, but that may soon be changing. Mercer had to postpone their “Chiller Thriller” to this Saturday (April 5), weather permitting, featuring the NDRL Northeast Super Late Models, NDRL E-Mods, Crate Late Models, and Stock Cars. Mercer’s regular season opener featuring their weekly divisions of “410” Sprints, “358” Modifieds, “305” Sprints, Stock Cars, Mod Lites, and Mini Stocks has now been pushed back to April 12.
