|This and That|
Week of May 16th, 2016
Each week I will write about the world of sports:
*Thanks to everybody involved in this year's Dick Vitale gala, raising money for the Jimmy V Foundation for cancer research. Urban Meyer, Robin Roberts and Bo Ryan were our honorees. Sarasota was the sports capital of the world with names from the sports world coming to the event. Names like Jim Harbaugh, Archie Griffin, Lloyd Carr, Jon Gruden, Nick Bollettieri, Chris Fowler, John Saunders, Dan Shulman and many college basketball coaches helped support the event.
*I like the Cavaliers to beat the Raptors in five games in the Eastern conference finals.
*I like the Tampa Bay Lightning to defeat the Pittsburgh Penguins to advance to the Stanley Cup finals.
*Stephen Curry is simply unstoppable. Congrats on being an unanimous selection as NBA MVP. He was super as the Warriors knocked out the Blazers.
*Several great golfers missed the cut at The Players Championship. Jordan Spieth, Phil Mickelson and Masters champ Danny Willett failed to make it to the third day. That is a tough tournament.
*Chris Sale continues to dominate. The White Sox lefty remained unbeaten with a win over the Yankees. He has been so impressive this season.
