Sports Speak Up! Antipathy toward Astros, public supported stadium for United

NEW MEXICO UNITED created much excitement with their inaugural season and are apparently attempting to get $30 million from the New Mexico State Legislature to put toward a soccer only complex. Too soon for a start-up operation. The legislature just this year upped their paltry $3 million for UNM athletics to $4 million, which still makes UNM a bottom-feeder compared to other Mountain West Conference schools. If the legislature decides to let some of that oil money flow, the state’s flagship university needs to be at the top of the food chain for that amount of lettuce.

WHOSE BAD IDEA was it to stop replaying the coaches comments at the end of the radio broadcast? We certainly will not get on social media to hear the interview. Part of the price of season tickets should include hearing the interview. Maybe the interview should be conducted at the end of the broadcast so the attending fans can hear it driving home. We support the team by going to the game and Bradbury should acknowledge this by making sure we hear his response to the game. …

PLAYING SPORTS as I get older presents different challenges like when I do squats now my knees sound like a goat chewing on an aluminum can stuffed with celery.
