This and That

Week of October 21, 2019

 

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

*Jose Altuve is pound-for-pound, inch-for-inch the best player in baseball. What a dramatic end to the ALCS.

*A Super move by the Angels, hiring Joe Maddon as manager. He is familiar with the organization and a quality choice.

*Where are all the critics of Minnesota’s Kirk Cousins? Have they seen him the last three weeks? The critics are awfully quiet as he has looked like All Pro.

*It seems that Antonio Brown wants back in the NFL with the Patriots. My gut tells me he will join the ALL COULDA SHOULDA WOULDA TEAM! Sad that he is wasting all that fantastic talent and skills he possesses because he is unable to make good decisions in the GAME OF LIFE!

*Penn State looks like a contender. The Nittany Lions got a huge win over Michigan.

*Lets tip the hat hat to ⁦

Juwan Howard for getting his first five-star recruit for ⁦Michigan. it will not be his last.
