I enjoy women’s college basketball, and enthusiastically celebrate the growth of that sport. I’ll be glued to that semifinal game between South Carolina and Iowa. South Carolina is trying to become just the tenth team to complete a perfect season. Iowa has Caitlin Clark. That’s appointment viewing.
Two things are really messed up in the NFL right now. One is the way the Jets and Packers continue to stumble their way through the Aaron Rodgers trade.
The other is Lamar Jackson. Yeesh.
Ravens Coach John Harbaugh remains the ultimate optimist. He must have said, “I love Lamar” two dozen times. I heard all 27 minutes of Harbaugh’s Monday press conference, in which he smilingly answered 32 questions. John is like that little kid who doesn’t mind mucking out a stall every morning, because he figures there’s gotta be a pony in there somewhere.
You think the Browns upset the contract-slotting apple cart when they gave Deshaun Watson that 230-million dollar guaranteed contract.? Wait till you see the mayhem that will ensue if the Colts make a serious play for Lamar.
I admire 49er G.M. John Lynch for his candor. Lynch told reporters yesterday at the league meetings in Phoenix that if Brock Purdy is good to go at training came following his recovery from elbow surgery he’ll be the starter in front of former first-rounder Trey Lance. Lynch said Purdy has earned that. I concur, but I’m maybe a little (pleasantly) surprised that he said that.
