Continuing education

If you enjoy sports, you would have had a pretty good time at Muirfield Village today with fellow Courier sportswriter Mark Heiman and me at the Ohio Associated Press Sports Writer’s Workshop.

It’s especially true if you like any of the professional teams in Ohio or The Ohio State University. The guys that cover them on a daily basis, Cleveland’s Tom Withers, Cincinnati’s Joe Kay and Ohio AP sports editor Rusty Miller, who covers the Buckeyes and Blue Jackets each told interesting stories about their experiences covering their beats in the past year.

I have some hope for my Brownies. I looked Tom straight in the eye and said, “Tom is it time I finally give up my Browns season tickets?” He looked at me and said, “Jamie, they are not as bad as you think.”

It wasn’t a ringing endorsement. But it wasn’t gloom and doom either and he should know since he covers the team on a daily basis.

One of the more entertaining speakers was an area native. Tom Archdeacon is a columnist for the Dayton Daily News. Arch is a native of Ottoville and is considered one of the top columnists in the country. I will try and link some of his more interesting columns when they come online and share them with you.

It’s 8:37 p.m. and raining cats and dogs in Findlay right now. Hopefully they’ll be able to get tomorrow’s sectional golf tournaments in.

On tap for tomorrow…football picks will be posted in the morning and Week 6 football notes will be posted before I leave the office tomorrow night.
