I’m all in on the Indiana Pacers..I’ve never watched a Pacer team play with better ball movement a total lack of ego and not sure anyone on the planet is as hot as TJ Warren..don’t believe me, ask Vic.

As I’ve said on my show, there is no group of fans more moronic than Miami Heat fans, no media more blinded by homerism than Miami Heat media. I actually had a Miami media member tell me how their Head Coach Spolstra was worthy of a “1st round pick”….I actually agree if Anthony Bennett and Darko Milicic are the example.
Can’t wait for a Heat Pacers playoff..I’m gonna be obnoxious and hateful.
Last summer some old broken down ex-Heat assistant came at me with nonsense on Twitter ..I’d post it but I can’t remember the fools name.
QUICK NOTE…HEY INDY HOW BOUT WE STOP KILLING

Absolutely love what Clemson football stud Trevor Lawrence is doing.
Let’s work together to create a situation where we can play the game that all of us love. Not divide and argue. There is a way forward
— Trevor Lawrence (@Trevorlawrencee) August 9, 2020
While politicians continue to embarrass all of us with the constant bitching, whining, and arguing, college kids like Lawrence continue to show leadership that our elected folks can’t comprehend.
I’ve said for years on my show, look at our politicians…most are nonsensical goofs that somehow got elected and have people idolizing and paying attention to them for the first time.
The problem is we elected a bunch of dorks into most positions of power, then act surprised that they can’t lead and are cowards to public opinion. 🤷🏼♀️

No way they can handle it..thus the stupidity and gutlessness. Guys like Lawrence have been dealing with the spotlight for years. He’s comfortable in his skin and has been for a long time thus he has courage and leadership that few, if any, of those elected have.
Having said that, colleges are clearly in a tough spot as the world is only looking for those to blame and have college athletic departments clearly in their sights.
Liability is a mutha, nobody wants any part of a COVID lawsuit. My guess? College football is done until maybe possibly the spring.
College Hoops? Anyone’s guess but damn does this set up to be a fun year..
Let’s Think Happy Thoughts…
This week, my wife the Lovely Leigh Ross and I gave away bikes #68-70 in our bike giveaway..look at this happiness.
BEST DAY EVER!!!! pic.twitter.com/96BDIrWf5n

I challenge college football and basketball coaches to start something, anything in the inner city closest to them. College football, basketball head and assistant coaches make an obscene amount of money yet how many participate or lead in programs designed to help kids in need? Not sure the answer but it sure doesn’t seem like many.
Coaches Miller, Painter, Allen, Brohm, and their assistants make millions in Indiana yet is there anyone leading in the communities that they recruit?
Don’t give me nonsense about NCAA rules…coaches setting up programs like Dakich Cycles isn’t against any NCAA rules.. LETS GO COACHES

Love what MLB Commish Rob Manfred is doing…he’s leading during difficult times.
You may agree or disagree with how baseball is handling this pandemic, but Manfred is using science and common sense to lead his sport. He’s been masterful and I’m guessing moving forward you will see the players following protocol more closely and baseball will have an amazing year. I love strong leadership.
Been watching a bunch of Cubs baseball ..starting to really like Ian Happ…bullpen will decide the success of the Cubs season, but Happ’s been dynamite and that’s good to see as he was a huge prospect that has started slow.
David Ross, on Ian Happ who had 3 hits in a scrimmage today and has a 1.031 OPS in the early going:
"He's the real deal."

People in sports talk radio call Mike Francesa “The Godfather” with this tweet I’ll let you decide what to call him.
Horace Clarke was the symbol of the Yankees' fall from grace post 1964. He was mediocre just like the Bombers '65 through '74. RIP.
— Mike Francesa (@MikeFrancesa) August 8, 2020
Horace Clarke was a good player and by all accounts a great man…Francesa is a man that couldn’t play a damn thing. What’s wrong with people?
Grigson got screwed being attached to Pagano.
