This and That

 

Week of July 17th, 2017 

*Congrats to Wimbledon champion Roger Federer, who showed why he is the greatest of all-time, winning his 19th major championship and eighth gentleman's singles crown, both records. He beat Marin Cilic in straight sets in the finals. At age 35, he showed why he is so special. Last year, he was sidelined with a knee injury and his future looked bleak. Now he has won two of the three Grand Slam events so far this year. He beat Cilic, Milos Raonic, Thomas Berdych and Gregor Dimitrov en route to the title, four highly-ranked, talented players.

*Smart decision by MLB to take away the World Series home advantage to the winner of the all -star game.

*With the second half underway, we will separate the Contenders from the pretenders in baseball!

*Good news for Longhorn hoop fans. The NCAA concluded Texas signee Mo Bamba did not violate rules

*Say what you want,  I applaud the guts of Tim Tebow for not having a fear of failure!

*The Warriors acquired a draft day steal by getting Jordan Bell.
