Week of September 26, 2022
Each week I’ll write about the world of sport:
*I am so appreciative of the many words of encouragement in my journey to beat cancer. With all the love and support, I am now cancer free and was so excited about the Dickie V gala as It raised over $11 million this year to benefit the V Foundation. Next year, we will honor John and Patrick McEnroe, David Robinson, Buster Posey and John Saunders Award for courage, Dereck Whittenburg.
*Clemson and Michigan had to really battle to win last weekend. Clemson edge Wake Forest in 2 OT, while the Wolverines were tested by Maryland. Tennessee had a good win over Florida.
*Kansas moved to 4-0 in football for the first time since 2009 with a tough 35- 27 win over
Duke. The Jayhawks are developing a winners mentality under the leadership of Coach Lance Leipold.
*The Dolphins are off to a great start. 3-0 with wins over Buffalo and Baltimore.
*At Texas, there is optimism as Chris Beard is excited about the depth of this years team. They have three new impact players in five-star Diaper Dandy 6’8 DILLON MITCHELL and two impact transfers TYRESE HUNTER (Iowa State) and JABARI RICE (New Mexico State). Dylan Dish
Is healthy and should be a factor inside while Marcus Carr has lost 20 pounds and is in better shape.
*The Tampa Bay Rays have exceeded expectations despite loads of injuries and never made excuses. They just battled will make the playoffs. Yet NO REAL SUPPORT! I don’t expect people to come that can’t afford it, but where are the LOCAL BUSINESSES? This franchise DESERVES BETTER! I feel bad for KEVIN CASH who is the Best manager in baseball.
*Louisville coach Kenny Payne made a super hire in Duke’s Nolan Smith. Cards are heading uptown baby!
