I can’t think of a more qualified person for this

Remember Doug Wilson?

The former H-T sports editor left an indelible legacy on the Herald-Times, one of impeccable journalism, uncompromised ethics, a forward-thinking vision (this blog exists because of him and Chris Korman) and a knack for hiring. He was the one, after all, who brought both Korman and I to Bloomington. At least he got the former right.

Doug is still around town, and he’s found a new hobby: writing about the sports bars in Bloomington.

Hand to god, I can’t think of a single person more qualified for this.

In his first series of stories, he wrote about the changing culture at Yogi’s to a place for beer aficionados, the popular Zombie Parade, the deep collection of IU collectibles (Keith Smart’s jersey!) at Hoosier Knights, and also the scene at Applebee’s.

You should visit his new web home. I will.


  1. “I” is a subject, “me” is an object. You should have said “He was the one, after all, who brought both Korman and ME to Bloomington” (emphasis added). It’s basic grammar. You write for a living.

  2. hey, maybe next post you can put the word Tiffany in a couple more times, im not sure what you all sell. Be more specific!

  3. Hello, Hugh. Thanks for the kind words and for helping people know about this difficult new work I’ve tackled that involves hanging out in bars, watching sports and checking out the beer and food selection. You guys are doing a great job.

    I also want to take this opportunity to say hello to all of the readers that I got to know while working at the H-T. I’m glad not to be working the late night and weekend hours anymore that the H-T sports guys do, but I miss the readers – okay maybe not Aaron (see above) – and the people I worked with (yes, Aaron, I did just end that sentence with a preposition – let me have it!).
