PROVIDENCE â€“ If youâ€™re nit-picking in a 19-point win, things are going well.
For the Coventry boys basketball team, they couldnâ€™t be going any better.
The Oakers got off to a great start against Central, the depleted defending state champions, and while the second half wasnâ€™t A-plus basketball, Coventry didnâ€™t let the Knights complete a comeback that would have had coach Tom Campbell pulling the figurative hairs off his shiny scalp in a 77-58 win Friday night at the Providence Career and Technical Academy.
During this holy season of Advent, in which we celebrate the birth of the baby Jesus, I find myself contemplating the role of the humble donkey in the two most significant events in Christianity.
A donkey was there in the beginning, carrying Mary to a stable in Bethlehem; another was present at the end, bearing Christ triumphantly into Jerusalem the week before his crucifixion.
