There are too few good sports columns out there. Many (like mine) consist of inane lists that require little thought or insight. One of the few good ones is “Locked on Sports,” by David Locke. He has a talk show weeknights from 7-10pm on Sports Radio 950 KJR-AM in Seattle.
I’ve only listened to his radio show a handful of times, but I read his column in the Seattle PI every Wednesday. In today’s column he does a review of his predictions from the last year. In it he mentions his missteps, (predicting the Sonics would win 20-40 games; they won 52 games and the division) and his truest of statements.
“With that said, there were two things I wrote that I know are right. Bud Selig needs to resign and Notre Dame sold its soul for wins.”
Steroids are a serious problem and if anyone watched Sen. McCain on the news, you know Congress is going to force baseball’s hand.
ND recently gave Charlie Weiss a 10 year contract after beating… nobody. Willingham (I’m glad UW got him) had 8 straight wins against tough teams and he got the boot after three years. Weiss is winning with Willingham’s players but he (CW) is getting all the credit. I just hope that race wasn’t an issue.
