What is up with this sudden competence in the Jets’ front office? That was impressive.
I said two months ago that Pete Carroll might be comfortable going into 2022 with Geno Smith as his starting quarterback. Hmmm. Oh, and the Seahawks also quietly did a very nice job in the draft.
So I was watching video highlights of Packers draft pick Christian Watson, the WR from North Dakota State. Dang, he looks and moves just like Jordy Nelson!
Some things just seem natural. The Saints are close to signing free agent safety Tyrann Mathieu. That’s good for everybody. I hope they get it done.
It can be very relaxing to not have a dog in the fight. I really like both the Warriors and the Grizzlies. Not only do I hope their battle goes seven, I wish they could play a best of eleven series. That’s good stuff.
The Celtics got cooled off by the Bucks Sunday in Game One of their second round series in Boston. If the Celts’ offense can’t get something going in the paint, this could be a short series.
I was relieved when Boston’s Marcus Smart was able to return to the game after what proved to be a shoulder stinger. Smart initially looked like a candidate for amputation. Going forward in the series, it appears Smart’s injured quad is a bigger problem than his shoulder.
Wuddya think? Is the NBA overdoing the whole replay challenge thing?
That got a little hairy for Jon Rahm on 18 yesterday in Mexico, didn’t it? But he got it done, and he will be a very tough out in the PGA three weeks from now.
I respect Rafael Nadal tremendously. I have little to no respect for Novak Djokovic. But they are both wrong in criticizing Wimbledon for banning Russian and Belarusian players from this year’s tournament. No. Hell no. State sponsored genocide and war crimes have consequences across the board.
Oh, one more thing. Dammit, Astros!
