Hello folks!

Thanks again for taking the time to read Spartan Nation.Â

·       Don’t forget to join me each weeknight for Mid-Michigan’s most sports at 6:15 p.m. Monday thru Friday on ABC 53.

·       On Hondo’s House Monday night, you can meet the Lions #1 draft pick. Stay tuned!

·       Yes I know that being here in Milwaukee for game three of the playoffs is such a difficult assignment, but hey somebody has to do it. Make sure you tune in on Monday to hear from Charlie Bell and the guys.

·       I have a team led by Eric Fish and Mike Kociolek down at the Joe; you will get to hear from your Wings, also on Monday.

·       Lot’s of speculation from the draft in New York. I am going to give you my draft blog early in the morning for all the inside scoops on what happened on the inside and what people thought and are thinking.

·       Curt Schilling the Red Sox pitcher is going to retire “AFTER” next season. That is a big loss; I got it from a source very close to Schilling very early this morning.

·       There is an honest to goodness real battle going on between the coaching staff in Tennessee and the management. Owner Bud “The worst owner in football” Adams may step in and make the call. If the team has a choice between Leinart and Young, here is how it plays out. If Leinart is picked look for that to be a real sign of ownerships to the staff. If Young is picked the writing is on the wall for the staff.

·       LenDale White, the USC RB has tested positive in an NFL pre-draft drug test according to a source this morning. I was told: “that is why he is falling.” On very influential NFL coach told me this morning: “he was high on our board, but we have to many issues there.”

·       Steve Howe, who was suspended multiple times for drugs died in a car wreck yesterday.  RIP.

·       Honorary Spartan Nation member John Smoltz lost yesterday. John is a great guy and a Mid Michigan product, as well as a great person you gotta love Johnny.

·       LeBron dropped 41 last night…OUCH!

·       Did anyone see Steve Nash and the defendant last night? As much as I dislike the defendant he is playing some great buckets here in the playoffs as he now remembers he has team mates

·       The Tigers are 14-9 and riding high. Way to go Tigers!

·       It is only 5 months and 8 days until the MSU vs. UM football game!
