:08 Do-Not-Worry-About-The-Pitt-Basketball- Team…They’re in a slump. It happens. New conference, young players and road trips can take a toll. They’ll do damage in the ACC Tournament. Take it to the bank!
:07 Speaking of Pitt…and I was…Lamar Patterson will go to an NBA camp and he will play on Sundays. Take that to the same bank!
:06 And speaking of basketball, and I was, the Duquesne Dukes may not have a great record, but they’ve got a good team, and very entertaining to watch. With this coach and incoming talent, the next two years will produce results.
:05 The Winter Olympics are over. Canada won the gold in men’s hockey and the U.S. women went to sleep in the last five minutes of their gold medal round. That’s all I got. Now shut up about it.
:04 Can we all please try to find a way to bring peace to our community. On and off the field. The abuse must stop and please God, can we stop this shooting and killing!!!
:03 Jason Collins is gay…Jason Collins is 6’11,” Jason Collins is Black, Jason Collins plays in the NBA, Jason Collins can run-shoot-dribble-pass-jump-dunk-block shots…okay, that’s it…Back up and go home people. Nothing else to see here. What is wrong with you people? Let it go!!!
