This and That

Week of August 7, 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 recent Dickie V gala as It raised over $11 million 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.
*I’m convinced that the “INDEPENDENT ACCOUNTABILITY RESOLUTION PROCESS”has created a nightmare for the NCAA. They never realized that they would take multiple years to rule on cases. I said it once and I will say it again, the time it is taking for decisions is PATHETIC!
*I’m so happy that Bryant Young, the former star at Notre Dame and the 49ers was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He ranks as one of the greatest defensive linemen in NFL history.
*Get the Cy Young award made now for ⁦Astros pitcher Justin Verlander. He has been awesome baby for his first place team.
*Dana Altman had to be smiling. Oregon got Mr Versatility in 6-10 Keane Evans, an inside-outside talent with size.
*I hope that the nine-year sentence imposed by a Russian judge should accelerate negotiations to get Brittney Griner back to the USA.

Quote of the Week

“One of the most scrutinized positions in college sports is Notre Dame QB. It comes with a lot of pressure."
