:10—Simply put, that’s how we roll in the “Foot Hills” AKA Penn Hills. I thought 100 percent sure Aaron Donald, the superior two-time defensive player out of Indian Country by way of Pitt, would lead the LA Rams to Lombardi Gold by doing the one and only thing that can stop the Patriots and that’s…take out Brady! And, it almost was done…I guess almost isn’t good enough. I guess the Rams just weren’t good enough…

I wonder what “The Heck” the NBA has been thinking all these years not inducting Mr. Chuck Cooper in the NBA Hall of Fame! Are you kidding me? The Jackie Robinson of basketball is not in the NBA Hall of Fame. And I bet you didn’t know that. Well, that may change this year. Stay tuned. I’ll keep you posted the next couple weeks.
:05—A.B. who? If they can trade Babe Ruth they can trade A.B.…who?
