This and That


Week of July 9th, 2018


Each week I'll write about the world of sports:

*This FBI soap opera rolls on. Now Maryland ⁦is part of the investigation, but do not rush to judgement until all the facts are in. Remember, no one on Terps staff indicted or arrested a la four other schools accused. 

*It will be interested to see how LaVar Ball handles the fact of the Lakers⁩ adding LeBron James and Rajon Rondo. What will all this mean when his son ⁦Lonzo⁩ returns from his meniscus surgery.

*Sad to hear of the passing of college basketball legend Jim O’Connell.H e was as good a MAN  as anyone can be,  a beautiful person. Man he LOVED college hoops. GOD BLESS his family & friends. Jim RIP. Also sorry to hear of the passing of former college star Clifford Rozier of a heart attack at age 45.

*It is embarrassing what Connecticut⁩ is doing in the firing of Kevin Ollie. Move on. He brought pride to the Huskies ⁦⁩when he guided them to the NCAA title. The pettiness is sad!

*There were so many upsets in week one of Wimbledon. Nine of the top 10 women’s seeds failed to make week two.No surprise that Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams made it to the second week.

*Congrats to the Final Four of the World Cup: Belgium, France, England and Croatia.
