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

I feel to protect players from injuries, two exhibition games vs. four would be a better way to go in the NFL. That won’t happen as it is all about the green, the George Washingtons, money, baby!

*Enough already, Colin Kaepernick ?should be given opportunity to return to the NFL.

*Headlines on ?Utah basketball indicated a two-year probation and that would make you think they committed major infractions when they did nothing with any intent to gain an advantage. Coach Larry Krystkowiak won an appeal of a two-game suspension. The NCAA must punish the real cheaters!

*Can’t anyone in tennis reach Nick Kyrgios as his antics are sickening! No doubt he is so talented, but the dude acts like a spoiled five-year old.

*Last week, Mike Trout turned 28 years old. He has a chance to eventually get in the talk as GOAT.

*Is there any doubt that Toronto's Bo Bichette is heading to be a superstar? Teaming with Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Cavan Biggio, this can be a special group.

*No doubt that ?Carmelo Anthony can help an NBA team with his offensive skills in a sixth-man role . Wish someone gives the future Hall of Famer a chance.
