This and That

 

Week of July 16th, 2018

 

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

*Congratulations to Wimbledon champions Novak Djokovic and Angelique Kerber. It was a great tourney, especially the men's semifinals.

 *Also a salute to World Cup champion France. They beat Croatia 4-2 in an entertaining final.

 *His haters may not like this, but Grayson Allen is winning over fans of the Jazz. He will be a valuable contributor in the NBA.

*I have great respect for Tim Tebow and his desire to play in the major leagues. He is chasing his dream and is a great example of a person who does not have a fear of failure.

*What are Orioles fans thinking with talent like Manny Machado and Adam Jones. Around 40 games below .500.

*I don't blame the 2013 Louisville basketball team for suing the NCAA over the vacated national championship/ Take away big cash from the school instead of punishing innocent kids. They busted their guts to win that title.

*Thrilled that NBA commissioner Adam Silver wants to get rid of one-and-done rule. He is a smart leader.

*Terrell Owens missing the Hall of Fame ceremony is disappointing. He should have gone to Canton.
