We are living in a post Super Bowl/current NBA All-Star Weekend era, which makes SSM a little more of a wild card these days.
A very special birthday, happened on Friday A guy who played a little ball while in the NBA Baseball not so much, but brave enough to try Michael Jordan’s 60, makes me want to cry
Tiger made a cut this week, the Genesis Open He won’t win the event though, dry spell won’t be broken Was able to walk all four days, a good physical sign Maybe a few more tournaments to get things back in line
Arizona/Florida, batting cages pop Pitchers running to first base, off the mound they hop Hope springs eternal, everybody has a chance Spring Training has started, baseball fans will dance
Speaking of Spring Training, Jacob deGrom is back Hurt after about an hour, got right back on track When the guy is healthy he’s as good as it gets But if he breathes a certain way his body’s on the fritz
Rough week for Purdue, on the basketball floor Former number one has lost three of their last four Top ranking in college hoops seems to be a curse Crimson Tide lost this week too, put the top dogs in a hearse

If it is not one thing, it’s always another Lindor and deGrom, why do the Mets even bother? To say they have bad luck, would be and understatement at the least Even with all the injuries, Mets first in the NL East
Speaking of New York, Yankees what the hell? COVID outbreak last week, six positive players fell Aaron Judge the biggest name, will be out at least 10 days Will miss some time against the Phillies, Red Sox, and the Rays
We’ve reached the end of a week that was chalked full of sports. We review in this week’s Sunday State of Mind.
Another gorgeous weekend at Augusta National The best golf weekend of the year, not irrational Hideki Matsuyama is your first time Masters winner He wins the green jacket and will host next year’s champions dinner
We had our first no-hitter this week against the Texas Rangers Joe Musgrove made opposing hitters his baby, put them in the manger It was the first no hitter thrown in Padres history Musgrove moved to 2-0 this year, great second victory
Another sad chapter in the Jacob DeGrom story The NY Post crushed the Mets and their chronic purgatory Fourteen K’s, one mistake, and zero run support Yet another hard loss to swallow, for one of the best in the sport
