I have found myself in a rare position during district tournament week -- listening to the games on the radio.
A bout of the flu combined with strep throat has pretty much wiped me out at a bad time for a sports broadcaster -- district tournament week. By my count, it's only the second Fifth District Tournament I've missed since 1985 and the first since 1992 when I worked in Hopkinsville.
The basketball teams that are successful this time of year are the ones who buy into the team concept. The same holds true in the radio business.
My thanks to Bill Booth and Ronnie Sadler who have stepped in this week and called the district tournament after being given about five hours notice that I was going to be on the shelf.
I hate to add work to anyone's already busy plate. So my thanks goes to Bill this week for his work at the district tournament.
