Throwing a no-no. Going 4-4. Closing a Sectional win. Not a bad week couple weeks for Connor Swain.

So... how'd you finish out your last few weeks of high school? If you're like me, you probably celebrated by toilet-papering someone's house and then headed to the mall.
New Pal Senior Connor Swain threw a no-hitter against #2 ranked Brebeuf on Senior Night (Brebeuf's) May 19th and went 4-4 and pitched a complete game in New Pal's 11-1 victory over Guerin Saturday in the Sectional Semi-final. He then came in and pitched the last 2 outs in New Pal's thrilling Sectional victory over Brebeuf. Oh yeah, he also got straight A's this year plus saved a wounded puppy from drowning. Okay last part made up, but I wouldn't be shocked.

Connor has a 3.67 ERA and 0.00 EGO. If Connor did ever have a chip on his shoulder, his dad - former baseball star in his own right - knocked it off with a 90mph fastball. What's left is one of those dudes who's easy to root for. Unless you're a Lebanon fan, who New Pal will face 2pm Saturday in Regionals.

Keep this up and they may have change the name New Pal to Connorsville.

If only re-doing their team were this easy.

The Jacksonville Jaguars just unveiled their new logo. Taa-daaa! I guess when your team is as bad as the Jags, you might as well improve what you can.

From a design standpoint, the new spots are spot on, (although less would've been better). It's been said the previous versions' spots looked like cheetos. I can't not see that now. The ear, chin and teeth are better.

But I miss the solid, consistent outline around the entire mark from before. The new head looks flat on top with the line weight half the thickness of the bottom. Something doesn't seem right. And I prefer the whiskers from before. I thought they gave it a nice movement that this one lacks. Overall the old logo had a nice, solid shape to it. It just felt like a logo, you know? This one feels more like an illustration.

There's a lot of bad logos out there. Personally, I wouldn't have targeted this one for an update. It just get's an "'eh" from me. In other words, perfect for the Jaguars. The real question is: Will the fans in L.A. like it?

Homeschooled kids school opponents on the court.

Ever heard of the Oetjen boys? If not, you will soon. Word is getting around on these talented young players for Horizon Christian. Horizon is an northeastside school that allows homeschooled kids to play on their team.

Caleb, (middle, or the non-twin) is a 6 foot Senior who averages 24 ppg and who was the 3rd leading scorer in Indiana last year. Caleb's getting a lot of looks from colleges recently.

6' 2" twins Noah and Josiah are in the 9th grade. I'm pretty sure that's Noah on the left, and Josiah on the right. They do for Caleb what the Davis boys (Dale and Antonio) did for Reggie.

These guys are easy to root for on and off the court. They're competitive in everything they do, including ping pong. (For the recored, I've beaten all of them at least once). Read about them in the latest issue of VYPE magazine, page 12.

The best Colt ever finally has some D.

A horse of a different color

If Peyton can't be a colt, at least he's still a horse.

Funny Coke commercial.

It has nothing to do with neither Naptown, nor Sports.

Great time to have the last name "Hansbrough"

First, Tyler scores a career high 27 points in losing effort against the Nuggets.
Second, lil' brother Ben scores 19 to knock off #2 Pitt.
On the flip side - bad time to have the last name "Cutler".
