MY HEART goes out to Al Unser Jr. and his family. Alcoholism and similar afflictions are so misunderstood as diseases. Kudos to the Journal for eschewing front page coverage.

WITH BLUE TROPHIES on the line for the state high school baseball and softball championships, the NMAA should waive the politically correct “mercy rule” with the games being stopped after 5 or 6 innings. Let the players get their cuts in for the full 7 innings. Per the late Yogi Berra: “It ain’t over till it’s over.” Possibly the NMAA could also explain why the boys tournament is single elimination and the girls tournament is double elimination. The Cobre softball team played 5 games in a little over a 24 hour period. Now that’s the definition of absurdity.

I KNOW Brooks Koepka is young and may not remember; but when Tiger started, he, too, came across as arrogant rather than just self-confident. Fans appreciated his brilliance at playing golf but oftentimes found him unlikable. Fans want their “guys” to be excited about the Major Tournaments and not hear it’s just another day to play golf. The polite applause he received was a message from which I hope he learns a little humility.
IN ALL THEIR wisdom New Mexico’s Congressional representatives Ben Luján, Xochitl Torres Small and Debra Haaland voted for the “Equality Act” that will devastate women’s sports by letting any male who “self-identifies” as female compete in woman’s sports. Don’t be surprised at next years State Track Meet if the women’s high jump winner has a mustache.
