TOM KELLY THE 5 decade long announcer for USC athletics died on Monday. He was a Trojan Homer, no doubt, and his announcing was the style USC liked – play up Troy at all costs. He cut many a phrase during his 50 years calling the shots – one was
“Oh Mercy Nurse!”. RIP Mr. Kelly
THE RIO OLYMPICS has the potential to be a disaster for Brazil. Forget that the county is a political mess – Athletes are opting out of participating for health concerns. Zika Virus is a major concern. Events like Rowing are plagued (see what I did there?) with pollution. The water is so bad that if an athlete ingests the water they could be become violently sick.
The US team will wear an Anti-Microbial Suit that is intended to keep out most micro-polluting sicknesses… but it doesn’t cover the athletes mouth…so…. yeah.
Not Really. To offer but one example of what a dolt he is – he once took classes to be a racehorse jockey. Buss is around 6ft and 200lbs.
Insiders have ridiculed his “smarts” for years, and although he promised to quit – he still hasn’t.
THE WARRIORS likely set a record for most wins that will never be broken – racing through the play-offs only to upended and bested for the Championship. 73… all for naught – and useless.
TECHNICALLY… that’s true. Ethically… meh….
Pat Haden and his family were running a non-profit and they collected over 2.4 Million in “salary and compensation”. His Sister worked part time. Her comp was pretty sweet with hundreds of thousands going into her pocket – all while the Foundation’s scholarships were reduced. See ya later Tricky Pat.
CURRY’S Under Armour Shoe iteration are pretty ugly. But… on the bright side, retirees in Florida will be buy them on the secondary market (after the flame out at full retail) 120 clams for ugly shoes is a steep price for… ugly shoes.
LeBron James finally decided to stop whining and play. When he puts in a “Michael Jordan-Like” effort, he’s kinda hard to stop. Curry and Co. had a chance to close it out and they gave it away.
