There’s a new hotseat in Sports Hell. Welcome to Cotulla, Calvin Ridley.
Zero sympathy. It’s a year, for now. I’d be okay extending it to “all eternity.”
The second week of the MLB season will be cancelled if the owners and players don’t work it out by COB today. Calvin Ridley would bet they don’t get it done.
The NFL salary cap for 2022 will be $208.2 million. That’s not a cap, it’s a sombrero.
Tip of my cap to longtime Colts’ TE Jack Doyle, who is retiring after nine NFL seasons. Google “professional football player” and see a picture of Mr. Doyle. Well done, good sir. Jack is an Indy kid who grew up a huge Colts fan. His is a very cool story.
It’s franchise tag deadline day in the NFL. Remember when guys liked being called a “franchise” player? My guess is that Davante Adams is not gonna like this game of “tag.”
Dang, Rodgers. Just make up your mind. Maybe today?
Yes, Richard Sherman can be a knucklehead. But I do think he’s basically a good person, and I hope his guilty plea to two misdemeanor charges stemming from his July arrest brings him some peace and closure. Richard tried to break into his in-laws’ house. Who the hell breaks INTO their in-laws’ house?
I’ll hold off on writing the sonnet to Pop until he holds the record for most career NBA wins all by himself. But he just tied Don Nelson? THAT Don Nelson? Damn. 1,335 victories is, like, a lot.
I’ve never been a “fan” of fans taunting players. The price of your ticket does not give you permission to be a jackass. That said, toughen up Russell Westbrook. “Westbrick”? It could be way worse. Now that they know it gets under your skin, it’s going to get way worse, not better.
