With the passing of Tennessee Women’s head coach Pat Summitt this week, former players have been telling fantastic stories and paying tribute to the late coach. Players like Candace Parker who is considered by many to be one if not the best players to ever come out of Tennessee.
Buddy Ryan, former NFL head coach, architect of the infamous ’85 Chicago Bears defense and father to current Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan passed away on the same day as Summitt. Ryan created the ’46’ defense which was actually named after the strong safety. It was explained in Tim Layden’s book ‘Blood, Sweat and Chalk’.
Serena didn’t like that racket.
Then later in the week American Sam Querrey defeated world #1 Novak Djokovic.
How Not To Celebrate
The Al’s have fined the receiver and the CFL is set to leave punishment Monday or Tuesday. It will be tough for the Al’s since they lost their other top receiver SJ Green for the season during the same game.
This Week in Baseball
Troy Tulowitzki returned to Coors Field on Monday to a standing ovation. He then struck out looking.
The next night the Blue Jays and Rockies were delayed for some three hours due to a hail storm that passed through the Denver metro area.
Chicago Cubs superstar Kris Bryant had a helluva game this week. How is 5-for-5 with three homers and two doubles sound?
While the British people voted to exit from the European Union, the men’s national team did their own version of a Brexit from the EURO 2016. They were knocked out of the tournament by Iceland in a match that was never close. The most entertaining part was ESPN announcers Ian Darke and Steve McManaman absolutely ripping the England side. Manager Roy Hodgson resigned after the match.
