Sports Speak Up! Tiger, Alford polarize our readers

OH TIMMY, I hope you don’t live in a glass house. Golf fans love Tiger for his golf. We all make mistakes. I’m sure he wishes things had gone differently. It’s not a competition of morality.

RICKY, RICKY, RICKY, I know that Mr. Woods has A huge following. I know he sells. Aside from major victories, Jack Nicklaus and Mr. Woods are not in the same class of gentleman. I have met Jack Nicklaus, I have met Ben Crenshaw and I have met Gary Player, I played 18 with Notah Begay. As for my knowledge about golf, before a serious shoulder injury I was playing to a 5. Some of my golfing buddies called me … the rules Nazi. Play by the rules, on and off the course.

STEVE ALFORD brought UNM and its fan base good players, discipline and toughness, all of which resulted in championships. Along with Alford’s slogan “We are New Mexico,” there were high sales of all types of Lobo gear which UNM fans purchased and proudly wore. With losing basketball, football and baseball teams, not much Lobo gear is seen around town these days. (If Nevada comes) to the Pit this season (maybe with Noodles as an assistant coach?) vs. UNM and Paul Weir (also a former Alford assistant), UNM should at least be guaranteed one sellout game.

CONGRATS TO Steve Alford and sorry to say I will not be repurchasing my current 4 season tickets. I’ll watch as many Lobo games as available on television next year. When Weir is gone I’ll rethink spending $6,000 on tickets. Honestly in 45 years I’ve never seen such poor basketball IQ … All that talent wasted.

GO ALFORD: He’s in for the long haul. … In two years he will be hauling The Golden Egg again. He told them the truth. No problem.

CORRECTION TO This Date in Baseball: The 1st game at Ebbets Field on 4/5/1913 was an exhibition game of the Yankees vs. Dodgers. This is from 2 reliable online sources and a book. (Also Dodgers owner, Charlie Ebbets, forgot the keys. A locksmith was called to get into the park.)
