As strange as it sounds, I think North Carolina will feel “jet-lagged” after Saturday night and will have a bit of a letdown. Kansas will win.
On the women’s side, South Carolina rules. That wasn’t close. And can you believe that it has now been six years since UConn’s last national championship?
If it’s possible for a sure-fire first ballot HOFer to have flown under the radar for 16 years, Frank Gore has done it. 16,000 rushing yards. Nine 1,000-yard rushing seasons. 100 TDs. Played RB in the NFL to the age of 37. Mr. Gore says he will now sign a one-day contract with the 49ers (for whom he played the first ten years of his career) before retiring. He will do so as the NFL’s #3 all-time career rusher, trailing only Emmitt Smith and Walter Payton. Mensch.
Are you “offended” that NBA coaches Steve Kerr and Alvin Gentry spoke out against gun violence before last night’s Warriors-Kings game in Sacramento? If so, that’s a “you” problem. Should Kerr and Gentry “stick to basketball”?
Wow, that big fella is on a roll. I’m talking about Kareen Abdul-Jabbar. His analysis of the Will Smith-Chris Rock travesty was spot on. And now KAJ is essentially saying that Lebron James needs to stop being a pub-thirsty, waffling jackass. Keep speaking and writing, Good Sir.
LBJ should soon have time to reflect. The Lakers have lost six straight and now trail the Spurs by two games in the race for the final play-in spot with four games remaining. And San Antonio holds the tie-breaker edge. Let that sink in. The 2021-22 Spurs are almost certainly going to make the postseason, regardless of how tricked up this “postseason” format is. Will those “play-in” games start with a runner at second base?
Tiger says he’ll be a “game-time decision.” I hope the light is green. Finally, some Qatari businessman named Nasser Al-Khelaifi says his soccer Champions League Final should be “bigger than the Super Bowl. That’s cute.
