This and That

Week of March 30, 2020


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

*As a season ticket holder for Bucs, I am hoping the Bucs can get a quality back that can catch the ball as Tom Brady has a history of using his backs as receivers.

*Stephen Curry is a superstar who has prepared well for the day that his hoops career is over. He is a fabulous role model for kids, adults and many of the pro athletes of all sports. Our nation needs more like Steph!

*Rick Pitino struck gold in recruiting as he has five commitments who are labeled four-star players by some, but trust me with Pitino?s teaching and motivating talents they will become five-star PTPers. His goal is to make Iona the Gonzaga of the East.

*I met Curly Neal several times and he was a talented showman. Curly put a smile on the face of millions of fans of all ages all over the world. May Curly RIP

*I was thinking about the visit to Dayton at end of the season and the Hoops Hysteria was unreal. This past weekend could?ve and should?ve been so special for OBI TOPPIN and the Flyers.

*No doubt that Anthony Edwards of Georgia will be one of the top three in the NBA Draft. Amazing that he?s only 18 yrs old. This is one of the reasons he is so highly rated.
