One day after Alex Brown’s mom died of breast cancer (she fought it for 15 years) he took to the field & had 8 T.D’s. His high school team won 58-34. Tom Brady texted & congratulated him. Alex will be going to Bucknell to play football. (11-14-2021)

The Lions waited nine games to win half a game. After losing eight straight they tied in Pittsburgh 16-16. Nelly Korda, won a four person playoff in Belleair, Florida to win the Pelican Open Championship. The K.C.Chief’s beat Oakland 41-14. Patrick Mahomes was 35/50, 406 yards, and 5 T.D.’s. M.S.U. came to Columbus with a 9-1 record & a coach looking to sign a $ 95 Million dollar contract. This did not end well. Ohio State killed them in the first half with six C.J. Stroud touchdowns. It was 49-0 at the half & ended up 56-7. Ohio State took the starters out at half time. Michigan beat Maryland 59-18 & they now go into Columbus at 10 & 1.

A kid’s flag football team in Texas outscored other teams 100 to 6, so they kicked them out of the Tournament. STUPID WOKE AMERICA. LeBron James took a swing at Piston Isaiah Stewart in a game. Then he stood behind four players so he would not get hit. What a “Wuss’. Oscar Tshiebwe (born in the Congo) at Kentucky is a big time Christian. Enes ‘Freedom” Kanter (Turkish American is now an American Citizen) who plays for Boston Celtics and has come out to tell about the abuses happening in China. Members of his family have been put in prison because he speaks the truth. Le Bron has his shoes made in China, James is a total Un-American hypocrite, as is the NBA.

Michigan beat Ohio State 42-27. No easy task considering Michigan lost to them 8 straight times & Ohio State beat Big Ten teams 26 straight times. The stars of the game: Aidan Hutchinson was every- where on defense driving them nuts (Or Buckeye nuts). On offense Hassan Haskins-28 carries, 169 yards, & Five TD’S with the help from his offense line.

MORE SPORTS DEATHS: Lee Elder (87)-1St black golfer to play in the Masters. He won Four PGA Events. Lou Angotti-Flyers Captain (83), Howie Glover-Red Wing (86), Art Ditmar Pitcher (92),Mike Marshall-First Relief Pitcher to win the Cy Young (78) ,Del Crandall-Braves Catcher (91), &  Ralph Backstrom Montreal-6 Cups (83). 11/30/2021-Tiger Woods retired.  Coach Brian Kelly left Notre Dame for LSU & $95 Million. Michigan ran over Iowa 42-3 (Aidan Hutchinson was the M.V.P.) to finish #2 in the College Football Poll, Georgia was # 3, Alabama #1 and Cincinnati #4.

New to the Baseball HOF: Gil Hodges: 1921 Hits, 370 HRS, .273 BA, & 1274 hits. Minnie Minoso: 2110 Hits, 195 HRS, .299 BA, & was a great fielder. Jim Katt: 283 wins, 3.34 ERA, 2461 K’S. Tony Oliva: 1917 hits, 220 HRS, .304 BA, 947 RBI’S. “Buck” O’Neil: Negro League star & was the very best on the Ken Burns special. Kenneth Walker III (MSU) won the College Football Player of the Year (Walter Camp Award) & the Doak Walker Running Back of the Year Award.  He is just a Junior.

Jim Harbaugh was the AP Football Coach of the Year. Mel Tucker was the Big Ten Football Coach of the Year. Michigan’s Aidan Hutchinson was 2nd in the Heisman vote (He also won the Academiic Player of the Year), Bama’s QB Bryce Young won the Heisman. Bryce is one nice kid & a Christ believer.

Transgender swimmer Lia Thomas at Penn is breaking every women’s swim record by miles - It is wrong and stupid.  How could he (or she) enjoy this?  NFL Sideline Reporter (Michele Tafoya) was fired for a Kaepernick comment on the “View”. All she said: “If he were good enough, he would be playing.” Freedom of speech is gone on ESPN.   

LOOK BACK:  Bob Marinellis Lions were 0-16 in 2008.  Lions QB’S that year: Dan Oriovsky, Jon Kitna, Daunte Culpepper, Drew Stanton, & Drew Henson (THEY ALL SUCKED). This year at an Islanders game-the fans gave a tribute to Robin Lehner, goalie of the Vegas Knights who has fought depression in this life. It brought him to tears. One great movie: “American Underdog;-Kurt Warner’s life.

THE NHL declined the 2022 Olympics in China (loved the move).  

1/06/2022: Jim Harbaugh may leave Michigan for Pro Football. 1/02/2022: With Tampa trailing the N.Y. Jets 24-21 the Bucs stopped them on a 4th down try @ the 7- yard line. With only 2 minutes to go Tom Brady did his magic.  He marched his team down the field & finished with a 33-yard T.D. @ the 15 second mark to win the game. The pass went to Cyril Grayson (He never played College Football-he was a track star at L.S.U.  (YOU CAN’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP).

Before that play Antonio Brown disrobed and left the game in disgust, because the coach wanted him to play through an injury. SEE YA DOPE. Antonio Brown played his College Football at CMU for 3 years. He totaled 3199 yards & 22 TD’S. His QB was Dan Le’Fevour (12,905 yards & 102 TD,S)  After the Buc game Antonio was seen at the Nets basketball game-setting of course in the front row. Pro football world lost John Madden at age 85. John was the face of the NFL. John won a Super Bowl (XI) with the Oakland Raiders. His NFL record: 103-32-7 (.750). One fun guy with no ego. 4 teams played for the National Title: Alabama ran over Cincinnati 27-6. Michigan got killed by Georgia 34-11. Bulldog QB Stetson Bennett went 21/31,310 YRDS, & 3 TDS. Michigan’s Aidan Hutchinson had ZERO sacks. A week before this game Michigan won the Joe Moore Award for College’s Best Offensive Line. Not against the SEC.   

Novak Djokovic (2021 Australian Open Champion) was kicked out of Australia this year because he refused his COVID-19 shot.  Yes, Australia is nuts. Tiffany Coyne (Age 39) who is a star on “Let’s Make a Deal” show, once was a Utah Jazz NBA dancer from 2000 to 2002. I could see that being true. The NFL now has 17 teams with male cheerleaders mixed in. This is so dog stupid. Flaming gay men dancing like idiots. They look like a stink bug amongst butterflies. Dallas & Miami said “Hell No.”  On a different note, The Tampa Bucs played their first playoff game at home in 17 years & beat the Eagles 31-15. Tom Brady was 29/37, 271 YRDs, & 2 TDS.

Malik Mc Dowell (MSU & Browns-6’6’ 290 pounds) was arrested in Deerfield Beach for running naked & for punching a policeman in the face. Years back in Oakland County he was jailed for resisting arrest. This dope is a slow learner. 8 NFL coach’s fired, Jon Gruden & Urban Meyer the most notable. 31 NFL players arrested in 2021 & 2022. N.Y. Islander Captain Clark Gillies passed at age 67. Four crazy NFL Playoff games: 49’ers 13 Packers 10-won with a field goal, Rams 30 Bucs 27, Brady scored 14 points late, Matt Stafford threw two bombs & won late with a field goal, Bengals 19 Titans 16, won with a field goal, Chiefs 42 Bills 36: Mahomes 33/44, 378 YRDs, & 3 TD’s.

In 1972 Richard Nixon made it possible for girls to get scholarship money for sports. Skating hottie: Russia’s Alina Zagitova (Won Olympic Gold in 2018). Two more Russians skaters to add: Anna Shcherbakova & Alena Kostornaia. LPGA Hottie Nelly Korda still way hot #1. American Eileen Feng Gu (Sounds like an Asian appetizer) is skiing in the Olympic X-Games.  

Rafael Nadal won the 2022 Australian Open over Daniil Medvedev 2-6,6-7,6-4,6-4,7-5 (5 ½ Hours). It was Nadal’s 21st Grand Slam. Matt Stafford who was 74-90-1 lifetime with the Lions, went to the LA Rams & took them to the Super Bowl by beating the 49’ERS 20-17. He was 31/45,337 YRDS, 2 TD’S, & 1 IT. Mahomes & KC lost to Cinn 27-24 in OT on a field goal.

NFL’s Pro Bowl should play flag football - no one hits anyone. Got a new T-Shirt: “MAKE FOOTBALL VIOLENT AGAIN.” Aaron Rogers was the NFL MVP & WHY? Should have been Brady or Stafford.  Kirk Gibson & Rick Leach (Both future Tigers) played against each other in the Michigan/MSU game of 1978-MSU won 24-15.

Midland High beat Heritage in double overtime - 1st win over Heritage in 10 years of High School Hockey. Coach K has retired at age 75. He won 1196 games (.766 Winning %), Won 5 National Titles with Duke. He went to 12 final 4’s. He is the best College Coach of all-time.  Coach K’s run is over: 1202 wins & 5 National Titles. North Carolina 81 Duke 77/Kansas 81 Nova 65. Women’s: South Carolina & U Conn. Coach K: “In the end-you’re either crying for joy or crying for sorrow - that means you put everything into it.” .

M.S.U. named a new hockey coach: Adam Nightingale. “Rich Strike” won the Derby at 84 to1. That is unreal. A $1.00 bet paid $973.00.. The Lions signed Aidan Hutchinson for $35 Million (4 YRS). The most ever was Sam Bradford as a rookie for $76 Million. M.S.U. basketball star Adreian Payne shot & killed at age 31. Piston Bob Lanier passed at age 73 - I once had his game shoe’s: they we’e huge. 6 Phillies have died of brain cancer: David West 57, Ken Brett 55, Tug McGraw 59, Johnny Oates 58, John Vukovich 59, & Darren Dalton 55. 

Justin Thomas won his 2nd PGA in O.T. Tiger Woods withdrew after a plus 8. John Daly missed the cut In John’s last round he had 20 cigs, 12 diet cokes, 6 pack of M & M’s, & zero waters. “Voting Early” won the Preakness - there was only 8 horses.

One of the very first two sport pros was Frank Baumholtz (basketball and baseball). He is 102 years old. In baseball he had a .290 BA for 10 years. He played for the Cleveland Rebels in 1946 and 1947 and averaged 14 points a game.

Brooke Henderson won the “evian” in France and $1 million. She dropped and eight-foot putt to win by one. Past note: Golfer Billy Casper had 11 children. “Dickey V” (Vitale) beat cancer twice. He is one very nice man and a great basketball announcer. Ashleigh Buhai won the Women’s Open in four OT holes. It was her first major at 33 years old. The Tigers retired Loui Whitaker’s #1. He belongs in the HOF.

The Great Lakes Loons have 92 former players in the Major Leagues. Corey Seager makes $7.6 million a year/Joc Pederson $6 million/Clayton Kershaw $31 million a year. The Fed X Champ this year is Rory McIlroy who took home $18 million. The ladies LPGA in Ottawa: Pauala Reto won the first the first time in 157 starts.

In the US Open, Serena Williams won her first match 6-3/6-3 over Danka Kovinic.  Mickey Mantle’s rookie card sold for $12.6 million (Yes, that’s nuts.) Aidan Hutchinson’s sister Aria won the Miss Michigan USA.

Soccer kills: After an Indonesia team lost a game, the fans rushed the field. The result, 125 dead fans. In 1964 320 soccer fans died and 1,000 hurt after a Peru-Argentina game. Lions lost a game to the Seahawks 48-45. The fans expected it.

The Saginaw Spirit won their first game 10-6. Michael Misa scored twice. Aaron Judge got his 62nd home run (Yankee and American League record). A fan from Dallas caught it and will keep it. $$$$$$$$$ He already has a $2 million offer. Roger Maris Jr said it should be the single season record, as the ones before him all used steroids.   Saginaw County Club Golf Pro John Nowosatka set a course record with a 63 beating Ben Hogan’s 64.

Tom Brady is getting a divorce from Gisele Bundchen - both have $400 million in the bank. Tom's game against Atlanta he won 21-15. He was 35/52,351 yards, and earned one T.D. North Dakota State has a 49-year-old football lineman. Yankee pitcher Gerrit Cole makes $36 Million a year (this is nuts). More nuts - Max Scherzer makes $ 43.3 Million a year.

Astros beat the Phillies in 6 games to win the 2022 World Series. No one beats the Astros Bull-Pin. M.V.P.: Jeremy Pena hit .400 for the Series & Yordan Alvarez hit a 3-run bomb (450 plus feet) to put the game away. 

Michigan football was down 17-14 at the half-then scored 38 in the second half to beat Rutgers 52-17. (Unreal).  Bucs beat the Rams 16-13. Tom Brady was 36/58 & 280 yards with one T.D. He now has 100,000 passing yards in 374 NFL games. I was at the game. The Lions beat Green Bay and its cry baby Aaron Rogers 15-9. Aaron was 23/43-291 yards. He sucked in the Red Zone.

"Mattress MacK' McIngvale won $ 75 Million In Vegas betting on the Astros to win the World Series. Not a bad pay day. Michigan beat Nebraska 34 to 3. This team plays great defense.
