This Week in Fort Thomas Sports (plus notes)
Van Damme it's Friday.
A few quick notes before getting to the sports post.
-Obviously Sept. 21 has come and gone and still no Kroger fuel center. Bummer.
- Merchants and Music Festival is tomorrow. See you there. First one to spot me and tell me they read the blog, gets a beer on Fort Thomas Matters.
- It's the first day of fall and the weather obviously knows it. Call Birkley Services at 781-5500 to schedule your annual maintenance on your furnace before the weather gets too cold.
- Fort Thomas' crowned jewel and friend of the blog, Tricia Macke talked to Bill Cunningham about his new national talk show, which debuted this past week. The interview took place while shooting baskets and ended with our girl challenging Willie to a three point contest.
-Another friend of the blog, Will Chambers put a package together for Kentucky Sports TV on CN2, about the emergence of Highlands Quarterback and UK commit, Patrick Towles. Still don't know how Chambers didn't win the KSTV contest.
-Oh the Bengals. I am embarrassed to say my family still has our season tickets and I am once again vested into the hope of a winning season. Unfortunately they keep getting in trouble. WR Jerome Simpson had 2.5 pounds of marijuana delivered to his Villa Hills home. Upon searching the premises, police found packing material and an additional 6 pounds of pot.
This has Fort Thomas ramifications because backup WR and Fort Thomas resident, Andre Caldwell will step into the spotlight in Simpson's absence. Good luck to him.
- The Reds wrapped up a frustrating season last week. Not a whole lot of Fort Thomas intertwined in this story. Just thought some would like to comment on the season.
