There’s no athlete in an individual sport for whom I have more respect than Roger Federer. Champion. Gentleman. Sportsman. Competitor. Humanitarian.
The 20-time Grand Slam winner is 40. He has scheduled a third surgery on his right knee. Set it down, Good Sir. It’s time. Your legacy is secure and your heart is unquestioned.
A Honus Wagner baseball card just got sold for $6,606,000. Buyer and seller have elected to remain anonymous. I can understand why the buyer wants to lie low. You paid THAT for a cardboard rectangle? But if I were the seller, I’d rent a billboard in Times Square.
Hey, remember the Naval Academy cornerback who got a special exemption to delay his military service so he could go to training camp with the Buccaneers? That caused quite a flap. Never mind, at least for now. Undrafted free agent Cameron Kinley got cut yesterday. No shame. The Bucs’ roster is loaded and set. Young Cam says he’s undaunted, and wants to give it another shot. If no team claims him on waivers, he’ll become an unrestricted free agent.
