This and That

Week of January 11th, 2021

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

  • So heartbroken learning about the passing of Tommy Lasorda of ⁦Dodgers fame. Being in his company was a trip and I never tired of his stories. I shared time with him at my home, my Gala at dinner and they are great memories. Please RIP.
  • Congrats to Alabama’s DeVonta Smith on winning the Heisman Trophy. He is the first wide receiver to win since Desmond Howard.
  • He wants to get it done at his Alma mater. I am not surprised as Jim Harbaugh reaches extension to stay at Michigan
  • Wishing a speedy recovery from Covid -19 to HOLLY ROWE. She has beaten bigger battles and Covid has no shot vs. her courageous heart.
  • Wish the NCAA in some situations would just use PURE COMMON SENSE. An ex-Bethune Cookman shut their program down due to Covid- 19, Joe French transferred and asked for waiver & DID NOT GET ONE to be eligible second semester for Florida Atlantic . PLEASE HELP KIDS!
  • Tom Brady has been warming up. He threw for 381 yards against Washington. Two more wins and its a Super Bowl in Tampa.
