So tonight is the night that the Indianapolis Colts make exactly the correct choice and add Andrew Luck to their roster via the college draft. But while I am waiting for that to happen around 8 p.m., I have a few other thoughts to share. On Tuesday the NBA suspended Ron Artest for the 14th time in his NBA career. No, the commissioner didn’t suspend Metta World Peace. He suspended Artest who finally turned back into Artest. Also, once again, the worst professional sports commissioner on the planet got it wrong. For Artest’s swinging elbow, the punishment should have been at least 15 games. That way it would have wrapped into at least two playoff series should the Los Angeles Lakers go that far. There is no defense for Artest. He attacked viciously with an elbow that he would up to deliver. Did he intend to do the damage he did? Unimportant. The undeniable fact is that he didn’t care what damage he did when he threw it. The NBA would be a better, more sane place without Artest in it and I wish he would go away. On to the next topic. The Anderson University women’s softball team is not going away – figuratively or any other way. The Ravens have already secured the regular season title in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference and will be hosting the HCAC tournament in a week. This is a remarkable team and everyone in the area who enjoys softball is missing it if they don’t go watch this team play in that tournament next week. They have very good pitching. They have the speed and skill to play small ball. But what excites me even more about this team is its power. The Ravens have hit 35 home runs this season. Bluffton and Rose-Hulman are tied for second with 13, just over a third as many round trippers. Nine different AU sluggers have at least two. Natalie Moorehouse has 8 and Megan Ream 7. Both are juniors. Stephanie Atkins and Yardley Collett have 5 each. Atkins is a senior and Collett is a freshman out of Shenandoah High School. Please try to find time to watch these women in action. It is time well spent. Finally, we are less than a week away from handing out the 2012 Johnny Wilson Awards. I can tell you this group of athletes is again very strong. There are 15 nominees, eight girls and seven boys. Lapel, Elwood, Liberty Christian, Pendleton Heights, Daleville and Madison-Grant have two nominees apiece while Alexandria, Shenandoah and Anderson have one each. Frankton didn’t have a nominee this year, male or female. For those who don’t know, the Johnny Wilson Award is conducted by the Herald Bulletin each year for athletes who played in at least three different sports for at least two years. Sponsors for this endeavor include Anderson University, Madison County Community Foundation and Prairie Farms Dairy. I take great pride in being part of this program and look forward to it next Wednesday.
