I guess it’s safe to say the Spurs are playing the long game. They just drafted three promising first-rounders a week ago. Now we get the blockbusting news that they’ve traded their best player, All-Star guard Dejounte Murray, for three future first round picks in 2023, 2025 and 2027. San Antonio also gets forward Danilo […]


Deshaun Watson’s disciplinary hearing may wrap up today. As a practical matter, this is already a wrap. I’m telling you. While it is still an enormous longshot, the chances that Baker Mayfield will be the Browns’ starting quarterback this season are not zero. Watson will not see the field in 2022, and Jacoby Brissett can’t […]


I checked Deshaun Watson’s horoscope. It said Tuesday is gonna suck. And the lawsuit filed Monday claiming the Texans knew all about this filth—and even aided and enabled it—contains specific and detailed allegations that the franchise will have a hard time refuting.  After NFL Goddess of Discipline Sue Robinson (a former federal judge) sits Watson […]


Deshaun Watson’s NFL disciplinary hearing is set to start Tuesday. I’m convinced that the league’s appointed disciplinary officer, Sue L. Robinson, will recommend either a full-season or an indefinite suspension. Watson will have the right to an appeal. Yes, there is urgency here, with training camps opening next month. Baseball is great when you care […]

Yes, I tend to be conservative about these things, but I’m glad the Spurs played it straight in Round One.  Hey, you got three first round picks, go get three good players. Baylor guard Jeremy Sochan is a defensive demon. Ohio State Buckeye Malaki Branham has a complete game. And shooting guard Blake Wesley showed […]


The NBA Draft is an academic exercise for me. I’m interested informationally, but emotionally detached. Sure, I’ll watch, mostly to see what the Spurs do with those three first-round picks. Another quick Au Jus knockout over A&M, this time sending the Aggies back to the banks of the Brazos. But that was a great year […]


He means it this time. Brady doesn’t get a vote. I’ll miss Gronk. That Big Goof made the game more fun. He was also the most clutch tight end ever. And, yes, I’m familiar with all the other great ones. I’m relieved that he is retiring. He has taken a frightening beating. Pop open a […]


Commanders’ owner Dan Snyder won’t testify Wednesday before the House Oversight Committee as requested. Danny says he will be out of the country on Commanders-related business. So how about testifying virtually, Danno? You know we can do that these days, right? Danny Boy, says, nah, I’m good. I’ll pass on that, too. “Toxic workplace culture” […]


It was golf’s Boston Marathon. And it was excruciating. First it was Scottie Scheffler who made a move, birdying four of his first six holes in Sunday’s final round at The Country Club. But Scheffler faded in his attempt to win his second major championship of the year. Then the day became a painful and […]
