Manny Fils: "Throw them all out" voting was not right

Seriously, what were the voters for the Baseball Hall of Fame thinking? There are some people who I feel should never be allowed to be in Cooperstown unless they pay an admission fee. A few of those include Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire. Then there are

Other than Hank Aaron, there is probably not a bigger name for the Atlanta Braves than Chipper Jones. After all, he's been with the team since he got drafted in 1990.

Manny Fils: WHAT summer break?

I'm amazed at the dedication some of our local high school athletes have for their craft. While the rest of the student population will either be working, sleeping late in bed then moving to the sofa in front of the big screen, these athletes are out there practicing for hours to get better.

Manny Fils: Oh what a year it was

I can't believe that another year of high school sports is over. There's one thing for sure: I've seen a lot of excitement, as well as a lot of disappointment.. Even though Eastside's cross country team didn't win at state, they experienced the excitement of sending both squads to state
