Buddy Ryan

A sad day for those of us that love defensive football. Buddy Ryan the creator of the legendary 46 defense passed away at the age of 82. He was the defensive coordinator of the Chicago Bears 1985 Super Bowl team that set so many defensive records that still stand today. They averaged 4 1/2 sacks a game for a total of 72 that year and 31 years later it still stands. Remember it was a running league at that time so I can only imagine what they could have done against these pass happy fools. He will be missed!

NBA free agency starts on July 1st. Look for a bunch of millionaires to become multi-millionaires and you can remember that when you have to finance your tickets!

I was reading about Walter Cronkite today. Many people probably don't remember what a professional journalist is anymore because certain channels really don't care of integrity as they have an agenda to fill. Anyway, Cronkite trained himself to speak at a 124 word clip per minute so people could really focus on what he was saying. Most of us speak anywhere from 165-200 words a minute and people miss half of what we say.

The solar plane flew over the Atlantic Ocean in 71 hours going at a steady 50 mph pace. No fanfare like Lindbergh but someday people will look back and realize what a major event this really is!
