Good Morning! With the Border Country Sports Blog, I'm Keith Harrington.
First, I just want to give you all a heads up that there will be no blog tomorrow or Sunday as I will be taking time off to spend Christmas with my family. I will be back on Monday with the "Monday Morning Hot List" and the Border Country Sports Bennington Martens Players of the Week for this week.
I just want to take a moment to wish all of our Border Country Sports readers a a very Merry Christmas. Istarted this blog a little over a year ago to fill a void in the Lakes Region after the local radio station was sold and shut down. It is truly a labor of love. I write this blog every mornng simply to promote our local student-athletes and give them the recognition they deserve.
Thank you so much for your support of this venture. It is literally growing every day. I hope in the future to pick up some sponsors and take it from being a hobby to being an actual business. Hopefully one day I am able to make that happen!
