Dec. 9, 2013
Each week I'll talk about the world of sports:
*Nelson Mandela was a true genuine legend. May he RIP.
*The Yankees sent a major message by signing Jacoby Ellsbury to a seven-year deal worth $153 million. They also signed Carlos Beltran, Hiroki Kuroda, Kelly Johnson and previously added Brian McCann. It is a busy time in the Bronx.
*It is obvious that Willie Meggs felt that there was no way that the state could prosecute Jameis Winston and get a conviction.
*Something tells me USC hit a grand slam in its football hire of Steve Sarkisian. He brings passion, pride and lots of energy!
*Never close the book on the New England Patriots until the final 0:00 on the clock. The Browns learned that the hard way.
*Congrats to Matt Prater of Denver on his record-breaking 64-yard field goal.
*The Knicks are on a rollercoaster. After two big wins, New York lost at home by 41 to the Celtics.
