Sports Speak Up! makes its return

BRYSON DECHAMBEAU and Brooks Koepka should be paired together in the final round of the US Open Sunday … they deserve each other.

PED SUPT. STEWART should show some common sense and remove the asinine mask requirement for HS students athletes in record breaking heat endangering our kids. Obvious he has no administrative experience in an actual school setting and extremely limited knowledge of athletics. Perhaps he should study Greek Philosophy. Finance does not appear to be his strong suit either as NM lost out on 37 million dollars because of his incompetence. Certainly we can do better. Don’t see NM United or the Topes masking up.

AS UNM AWAITS any crumbs to be sent their way from the Albuquerque connected Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates and Warren Buffett, philanthropist MacKenzie Scott continues to deliver the cash, announcing another $2.74 billion bonanza, which brings her to $8.5 billion given away in less than a year on her quest to give away most all of her fortune. At least 15 colleges were on the latest list. Has anyone at UNM approached Ms. Scott? Cal State Fullerton, which inflicted the worst day on UNM athletics in the school’s history in 1978, received an unrestricted $40 million. Now that’s one bitter pill to swallow.
