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 On Hondoâ€™s House Monday night, you can meet the Lions #1 draft pick.Â Stay tuned!
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â 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.Â Make sure you tune in on Monday to hear from Charlie Bell and the guys.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â 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.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Lotâ€™s of speculation from the draft in New York.Â 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.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Curt Schilling the Red Sox pitcher is going to retire â€œAFTERâ€ next season.Â That is a big loss; I got it from a source very close to Schilling very early this morning.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â There is an honest to goodness real battle going on between the coaching staff in Tennessee and the management.Â Owner Bud â€œThe worst owner in footballâ€ Adams may step in and make the call.Â 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.Â If Young is picked the writing is on the wall for the staff.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â LenDale White, the USC RB has tested positive in an NFL pre-draft drug test according to a source this morning.Â I was told:Â â€œthat is why he is falling.â€Â On very influential NFL coach told me this morning:Â â€œhe was high on our board, but we have to many issues there.â€
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Steve Howe, who was suspended multiple times for drugs died in a car wreck yesterday. Â RIP.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Honorary Spartan Nation member John Smoltz lost yesterday.Â John is a great guy and a Mid Michigan product, as well as a great person you gotta love Johnny.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â LeBron dropped 41 last nightâ€¦OUCH!
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Did anyone see Steve Nash and the defendant last night?Â 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
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â The Tigers are 14-9 and riding high.Â Way to go Tigers!
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â It is only 5 months and 8 days until the MSU vs. UM football game!
See you Monday on Hondoâ€™s House at 7:30 if youâ€™re in the Mid Michigan market.Â
Thanks everyone, hug your loved ones and remind them that you love them!Â Peace! -H
