Hondo S. Carpenter, Sr.
Thanks again for taking the time to read Spartan Nation.Â
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Donâ€™t forget to join me each weeknight for Mid-Michiganâ€™s most sports at 6:15 p.m. Monday thru Friday on ABC 53.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â I am really excited.Â Friday my special guest on Hondoâ€™s House is MSU head hockey coach Rick Comley.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Zach Randolph will be back with his teammates today after being suspended for one game.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â On Monday I will be posting my fourth annual mock draft.Â This year will be like no other.Â There is so much stirring around the league with the possibility of trades.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Last year I was the ONLY person that I am aware of that even mentioned the Lions interest in Mike Williams, let alone who predicted it.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â The MSU vs. Notre Dame game this year at Spartan Stadium will be under the lights in a nationally televised game.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â In something that you first saw here after my visit on Sunday with some of the Knick players and media, Larry Brown will be out possibly for the rest of the season.Â The total perception is that he is a quitter.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Chris â€œred popâ€ Shelton got his 9th jack yesterday against Cleveland!
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Sid Crosby becomes the youngest player to reach 100 points.Â The kidâ€™ got game people.Â If you have not seen him live get to your closest NHL arena.Â Watch what he does without the puck to see what makes him great.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Albert Pujols, the man that I believe is the best in the game today hit his 9th jack yesterday also, but amazingly it was his 4th in 4 straight at bats.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â My sources in Minnesota tell me that the Vikings are offering their first round pick to the Falcons for Matt Schaub.Â I just donâ€™t see that.Â I think he would be a good QB but with Brad Johnson in the house, and so many wholes, that would be stupid.Â
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â The Jets are very interested in Matt Leinart and Jay Cutler, but have showed zero interest in Vince Young.Â That could be a ploy, we all understand how the NFL works, but one person close to Young told me moments ago:Â â€œwe just donâ€™t see the Jets thing happening.â€
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â The Cowboys are really coveting Mike Huff.Â Yes that Mike Huff, the Lions third rated player that many feel that they will get.Â Many see Huff being a sure Lion if Hawk and Williams are gone, and no one sees him getting past the Rams.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â It is only 5 months and 19 days until the MSU vs. UM football game!
See youÂ Friday on Hondoâ€™s House at 7:30 if youâ€™re in the Mid Michigan market.
Thanks everyone, hug your loved ones and remind them that you love them!Â Peace! -H
