It's been a while, and I'm tired of talking about my health...
My Kansas City Royals are off to pretty good start. Perhaps they can stay relevant for a while this season?
I'm fairly unimpressed with OSU's hiring of Travis Ford as new men's basketball coach. Don't get me wrong - I want him to succeed. I just don't think he was the home run hire needed after forcing the Sutton family out the door. The coach hasn't even won a single NCAA tournament game! I don't question Mike Holder's loyalty to OSU. I just question his judgment.
I'm excited about NBA basketball coming back to Oklahoma. We always had a blast going to the Hornets games. In my previous employment, we did a decent amount of business with Clay Bennett, Aubrey McClendon, and some of the others that are a part of that ownership team. I think very highly of them - they were always first class businessmen in my dealings with them. They have proven to be generous philanthropists in Oklahoma City for years. Unfortunately, this Seattle Sonics deal has seemed cursed from day 1. Every move they have made has seemed to be the wrong one in the eyes of public perception (well, especially in Seattle...). That's too bad. They are good men trying to build up Oklahoma City. I wish the road would have been smoother for them. (For another perspective, and a good place to discuss sports, check out John's blog)
Happy Saturday, everyone. May OSU beat Texas in baseball again today to take the series!
