This and That

Week of September 27th, 2021

 

Each week I’ll write about the world of sports:
  • Ben Simmons has decided he will not show up to Sixers camp. How does this hoops soap opera ultimately end?
  • I wish JJ Redick all the best in his future as I loved covering him at Duke. He went on to a solid NBA career. I admired his mental toughness as he played hard and had a strong will too. Redick had a winner’s mentality and was one of the best shooters I ever covered.
  • Having kids humiliated, physically and emotionally whipped for a payday is sickening. Yes, Miami-Florida whipped Central Connecticut State as the Hurricanes must feel great as they won 69-0 ! How does this help anybody but the cash register?
  • No doubt Notre Dame’s Brian Kelly will ultimately receive the highest honor in his profession and be inducted into the NATIONAL COLLEGE HALL OF FAME! He passed Knute Rockne to become the winningest coach in Irish history.
  • The Rams sent a message loud and clear by beating the Bucs. Matthew Stafford is off to a great start with the Rams.
  • It has been a tough start for Clemson. The Tigers lost to Georgia earlier, then there was shock city vs. NC State. Dabo Swinney will have his team prepared for the rest of the season.
  • Great job by St. John’s University as they are helping kids vs. cancer. Any other SID’s want their school to be part of The V Foundation’s DRIBBLE FOR VICTORY OVER CANCER simply call 941-350-0580 for info.
