This and That

Week of August 2nd, 2021

 
Each week I’ll write about the world of sports:
  • A great story as she was terrific! She was awesome baby as American Suni Lee wins all-around gold!
  • Congrats to the athletic Cade Cunningham on going first in the NBA Draft. He will help the Pistons.
  • USA basketball is ready to chase the gold as they move to quarterfinals with a brilliant second half vs. the Czech Republic. Jayson Tatum and Kevin Durant led the way in a 119-84 win. Now the competition gets much tougher. Defense as a team is a must if they are to win the Gold!
  • What a wild MLB trade deadline. A total of 10 players in the all-star game were dealt. Names like Max Scherzer, Kris Brant, Anthony Russo, Jay Baez, Joey Gallo and Craig Kimbel were dealt.
  • Wow, Novak Djokovic is human as ⁦he lost his second consecutive match at the Olympics. Now that is NEWS in the world of tennis! There is lots of hope for the competition in the upcoming US Open.
  • The Knicks got a guard who had lots of success in Quentin Grimes from Clippers at 25. Grimes played in a defensive system that should help him with the Knicks.
  • Yes, I agree that as a late second round choice, Luka Garza is a steal! The Pistons made a good choice in the second round.

Quote of the Week

“What a start for Seby Zavala of the White Sox. Three homers in his first game!"
