Carlos Correa of the Houston Astros led off the bottom of the 11th inning last night with a walk-off home run to tie the A.L.C.S. with the New York Yankees at 1.
Minute Maid Park was rocking all night long.
While rounding the bases after his blast, between third and home plate, Correa was coming down the line and witnessed his teammates waiting for him at the plate. Correa pulled up, stopped on a dime and removed his helmet. He then proceeded to do his best Eric Gordon impression by shooting a sweet looking jumper…with his batting helmet as the ball. Correa has serious rise on his jay. The Ponce, Puerto Rico native might have played ball back in the day with my main man Raul Orta?
Game 3 is Tuesday afternoon at 4:00 in the Boogie Down.
I thought I saw Russell Westbrook sitting behind home plate? Dude would have made for an outstanding baseball player.
This past weekend was the annual BCAM (Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan) Coaches Clinic at Oakland University. It’s an outstanding event. I usually attend but missed it this year. As usual, there were a few outstanding speakers sharing valuable information.
Dan Young has taken over as Executive Director for BCAM, he’s a great guy who wants the best for coaches.
Tom Izzo, Nate Oats, Phil Martelli, Brian Morehouse, Porter Moser, Saddi Washington, Fred Castro and Ryan Cottingham all were fantastic.
Nate is in his first season at Alabama – he’s going to do great. Roll Tide…
“We didn’t get good at offensive transition until we became a better defensive team,” Oats told the crowd.
So true. Your defense makes your offense.
Martelli is in his first year as an assistant coach at the University of Michigan – Phil is a Philadelphia guy and he talked about getting a good slice of pizza in Michigan. I texted him and told him try NYPD in Ann Arbor. Buddy’s is another decent joint. How great is this? He gave out his cell phone number. His phone is probably blowing up.
Cottingham, from Spring Arbor, check that, National Champion Spring Arbor brought a ton of energy and passion. He’s one of the best in the State.
Clinics are a great way to improve as a coach and most important network with others in the profession.

“I just think that if Kyrie would have stayed, I don’t know if it would have worked. There would have had to be some major changes as far as players, because it was just clear that the group that we had just wasn’t going to be able to coexist.”
Lots of talk about the NBA and China. I prefer not to comment on it publicly mainly because I do not know enough about the subject. By now you should know what’s been going on. Last night I watched “60 Minutes” and they did a special on the action in Hong Kong. Must watch TV – I learned a little bit more about the situation.
Share the ball. Sprint back on defense. And always be an outstanding teammate!
