He was a newspaper columnist in Chicago. Wrote rather an incendiary column about the gentlemen who protested on the medal stand at the 1968 Olympics. 

 

 

He did the triple crown in Chitown - newspaper, radio and TV (sports anchor for the CBS affiliate).  And yeah, his column from Mexico City wound a lot of people up.

Stay hard, Oakland Raiders....

 

Rumors of their demise may have been exaggerated?

 

Raiders move in doubt as Goldman Sachs mulls involvement following Adelson's exit

 

The Oakland Raiders' bid to relocate to Las Vegas has hit another financial roadblock that could put the team's planned move to the desert in jeopardy, a source told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.

 

With billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson angrily withdrawing from the Raiders' stadium deal on Monday, investment bank Goldman Sachs is also re-evaluating its relationship with the planned deal, a source close to the negotiations told Shelburne.

 

Adelson had previously committed $650 million to get the $1.9 billion project completed but announced the removal of his stake in a statement Monday.

Maybe, maybe not.  It was Goldman Sachs, not Adelson, that was part of the financing when Davis filed his relocation papers.  And Adelson has been making noises about pulling out anyways, because he wanted a piece of the Raiders for his money.  So Adelson's departure was long time in coming, even as Adelson feigns surprise/anger.  I suspect the 'source' is trying to poison the waters.

This past summer, the great Ken Hitchcock announced that he would be retiring after this season.

 

 

This morning the Blues fired him.

Are they that bad?

I may be late, but just had  random thought about Andy Dalton - wondered if there was any chance he was here for the SuperBowl and signing autographs.

 

I still need his sig on my Rose Bowl commemorative football.  I have about 30 signatures on it, but not his.

That's one expensive row boat.

Sources said Fleck's agent Bryan Harlan reached an agreement Wednesday with Western Michigan for the university to transfer rights to the phrase, which was used by Fleck but trademarked by the university.

The trademark, filed by the university in May 2013 and registered in September 2015, will be transferred to Harlan's company, Harlan Sports, sources said. Harlan and Fleck are then expected to allow Minnesota to use the mark as it sees fit, including on merchandise, as long as Fleck is with the school.

In return, Fleck will give Western Michigan at least $50,000 through five payments of $10,000 to endow a scholarship for a football player.
