    Hey, these Celtics are fun to watch — and so is Kentucky

    The best thing about basketball season being over is I get to catch up on the things that I’ve missed for the last two weeks. Like basketball. Specifically, the Boston Celtics and the Kentucky Wildcats. I watched the Celtics lose to the Golden State Warriors on Sunday and they were virtually unrecognizable from the Celtics that I last watched in early February. And I’m not just pointing out the obvious […]

    Dyer’s Look Back: Time to show hockey some love

    Some random thoughts as the winter season (thankfully) winds down…. Shine the spotlight on hockey: Since it doesn’t take very long, I would like to somehow see the high school hockey tournament stand out — from beginning to end — on its own after the basketball tournament ends. Some playoff hockey games have to be played on the same day as a playoff basketball game, which for some schools means […]

    Dyer’s gym do’s and don’ts

    I turn 30 later this year. That in itself is a life milestone. But this summer will mark the 15th year I first set foot in a weight room at Massabesic High School in Waterboro. I’ve been working out at gyms for half my life. The first eight years was for high school and college football. The past seven years have been for health and, admittedly, vanity. Through the years, […]

    Ranking the top five high school sports tournaments

    The high school basketball tournament began Tuesday night, although some would say it doesn’t officially tip off until Friday, when teams take the floor in the state’s biggest arenas for the quarterfinals. Regardless, this is the best time of year to be a high school sports fan. Honestly, there is never a bad time to be a high school sports fan. Just some times are better than others. So I’m […]

    Horrific Super Bowl injury causes flashbacks

    On Monday morning, I saw two photos of Seattle Seahawks cornerback Jeremy Lane. Each highlighted his very broken left arm. In one, Lane’s arm is bent between the elbow and wrist, as if there’s an extra elbow in there. In the other photo, Lane’s arm looks elongated and pulled out of place, like an old Stretch Armstrong. If you have a weak stomach or are easily grossed out, I recommend […]

    Dyer’s Look Back: Super Bowl XLIX was one for the ages

    Super Bowl XLIX reminded me why I truly love football. It’s a microcosm of the American dream. That through hard work, perseverance and a little bit of luck, any of us can manage the highest success in some walk of life, no matter where we come from. The New England Patriots defeated the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday night to win its fourth Super Bowl title in the last 15 years. […]

    Leftover thoughts from unified basketball and sled hockey

    • While the players were clearly the most excited ones in the gym for last Friday’s inaugural MPA unified basketball game between Cony and Oceanside, Rams coach Paul Vachon was easily a close second. A 2014 inductee into the Maine Basketball Hall of Fame, it was Vachon’s first time back on the sidelines in seven years. “I couldn’t sleep last night, I’ll be honest with you,” Vachon said after the […]

    Gov. Paul LePage out of depth with comments on DeflateGate

    Maine Gov. Paul LePage has officially stuck his foot in his mouth once again. While it certainly doesn’t carry the weight of the governor’s previous comments, including “The Vaseline” comment, or “I’ll tell Obama to go to hell,” or the “kiss my butt” lines that attracted national attention in the past, he found a new way to once again alienate his own people. He took on the region’s favorite football […]

    ‘Has the whole world gone crazy?!’

    ‘The Big Lebowski’ has long been an all-time favorite movie for me, one of those cult classics full of subtle humor that only gets better each time you watch it. Given the recent ‘outrage’ that has emerged in light of the report that the New England Patriots used underinflated footballs in their game against the Indianapolis Colts — which the Pats won 45-7, by the way — I’m reminded of […]
