This and That

Week of January 23, 2023

 
Each week I’ll write about the world of sport:

*I am so appreciative of the many words of encouragement in my journey to beat cancer. With all the love and support, I am now cancer free and was so excited about the Dickie V gala as It raised over $11 million this year to benefit the V Foundation. Next year, we will honor John and Patrick McEnroe, David Robinson, Buster Posey and John Saunders Award for courage, Dereck Whittenburg.
*The Chiefs got a big sack, until return and penalty to get the game-winning field goal.
*When you are # 2 in the nation a la Alabama, you are going to get everybody’s total commitment as they did from Mississippi State. Bama was able to escape with a win. Then the Tide faced Oklahoma and the Sooners rolled.
*OLIVIER NKAMHOUA of TENNESSEE was dominant on the interior vs. top 10 Texas. He led the Vols to an impressive win. His 27 points and eight rebounds were vital to the big victory for the Vols. I had a terrific time with the Tennessee fans there.
*Missouri got a big plus for their resume, blowing out Iowa State. Dennis Gates has done a good job in his first season there.
*Thanks to many of you that have sent me messages about the documentary on my life. if you haven’t seen my story “Dickie V” it is streaming on
