Over the last couple of months, the sports card market has boomed. Prices are sky-high across all sports, and it has become nearly impossible to find any product at retail price. This level of investment has not been seen since the 1990s and the demand back then caused most of the companies to go into overproduction, making most sports cards almost worthless from that time. Many people speculate that the companies are overproducing once again, but the empty shelves prove otherwise.
The Cincinnati Reds sent Devin Mesoraco to the New York Mets and picked up pitcher Matt Harvey. Harvey is getting a second chance, only this time with a bad team. This trade deal provided a fresh start for the two former All-Stars whose careers have been sidetracked due to injuries. Mesoraco was on the bench for first pitch by Luis Castillo, as he was originally supposed to catch. When he walked into the New York clubhouse, he was still wearing his Cincinnati Reds socks as attendants were sewing his name on the back of his Mets uniform. Mesoraco had described his experience as surreal.

Friday the 13th turned out to be a lucky night for the West Clermont Wolves, as they defeated the Loveland Tigers to extend their win loss record to 5-3! The varsity won 16-8 in a close game against the 1-7 Tigers.
“Winning is always a great reward for the long weeks of the season,” said Head Coach Nick Ayers. “We were disappointed in a few things.”
The Wolves were winning 7-0 through the third quarter after a Chayce Gambrell touchdown. “I thought the game was between two very similar teams,” said Ayers. “Both run a version of the Wing T and run similar defenses.”
The kicker for the Wolves made a season long 37 yard field goal in the 4th quarter to make the score 10-0. “I was very happy for Cameron Null, who made the kick,” added Coach Ayers. “We knew he was right around his range. He hit from 35 (yards) a few times in practice this week.”
Loveland then responded with a touchdown and a 2-point conversion that made the score 10-8. The home crowd booed loudly after the officials gave the Tigers a touchdown call though most in the stands thought their player dropped the ball.
Junior Ryan Cann caught a 49 yard pass to help the Wolves take a 16-8 lead. West Clermont ended up with 332 total yards, and the defense held Loveland to only 182 yards. According to the MaxPreps website, the attendance for the game was more than 5,000!
The Wolves next football game is coming up on October 20th. This is their final home game and senior night. “We are very happy for the kids and seniors to get the win before their senior week,” Ayers said. “The hard work has definitely paid off in close games.”
