The Cartel Known as the NCAA has been busted. And the Earth is still spinning on its axis.
An active NFL player has chosen to disclose that he’s gay. And as far as I know we’re still going to play football.
The NCAA’s very structure can be reasonably and honestly described as organized crime. The “final score” in yesterday’s SCOTUS game was 9-0. Those nine folks generally could never unanimously decide what toppings to put on a pizza.
Raiders defensive end Carl Nassib delivered a very measured “Oh, by the way” message yesterday. He was cool about it. Everybody else should be cool about it, too. So far, so good.
Here’s what’s not cool. Chiefs DE Frank Clark got pulled over in L.A. Police found an Uzi in “plain sight” in his vehicle. That’s not exactly “oozing” brains.
Here’s what else is not cool. Vikings rookie DE Jaylen Twyman was one of several victims in a shooting yesterday in D.C. Twyman was shot four times. All four bullets exited his body cleanly, without causing vital damage. Twyman is not only going to be ok. He’s not even going to need surgery.
Was Monday “Defensive End Day” in the NFL?
One More Thing (OMT). Wishing the best for the Sixers’ Ben Simmons. Man, that was painful to watch. All of us as humans can have no more brutal company that our own minds. I’m pulling for him.
