This and That

Week of September 23, 2019

 

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

*We need our best to win the Gold medal at the Olympics. The US got good news as Steph Curry announced his intention to play!

*The question I have to all of you football lovers: is ELI MANNING a Hall of Famer? If I am voting, I say YES!

*If Colin Kaepernick wants a job back in the NFL and is ready to play, this is the time for it to happen. With all the QB problems teams are facing, he should get the opportunity now. If it doesn’t happen soon for Colin, it will NEVER happen.

*Players like Antonio Brown, who are constantly a problem, need to learn that football and the NFL are bigger than them.

*UCLA rallied from a 49-17 deficit to surprise Washington State, 67-63. Anthony Gordon threw nine TD passes and lost!

*Yes Georgia won the game, but Notre Dame earned a lot of respect. The Irish will not lose another game this season.

*The Lions are a surprise team at 2-0-1. Winning at Philadelphia is a confidence-booster.
