DON’T COMPARE Cheater Brady to an Olympic gold-medal gymnast. NFL quarterback head injuries are minor with lineman protecting them. Gymnasts’ head injuries are likely to be fatal!
WHY ARE KNICKERS in a twist over Simone Biles’ “twisties”? Rather than live vicariously through the talents of Simone and others, Brian and Joel from TX (Sports Speak Up, 7/30/21) might do well to climb out of the BarcaLounger and confront their mediocrity head-on. The “twisties” by the way is an unpredictable affliction with mind and body out of sync during a gymnastic routine; and it is dangerous. Mind and mouth out of sync is, well, mostly annoying.
I KNEW THERE would be negative backlash from Simone Biles’ decision to withdraw from Olympic individual all-around and team gymnastics finals. While I think she made the right decision, given the circumstances, it is most unfortunate that this may be her legacy rather than being the number one female gymnast of all time.

BRIAN (RIDGECREST AREA)/Joel from TX = unmitigated fatheads who couldn’t somersault their way out of a paper bag — let alone do any of the complex skills Biles routinely performs. Brian/Joel — petty little babies who can only make their sad, pathetic selves feel better by kicking Biles when she’s down.

SUNI LEE AND Simone Biles are now household names, while most of the players in this year’s NBA Draft I’ve never heard of. Huh? Remember when the NBA-bound stars of college basketball were household names? Remember hating Christian Laettner, Danny Ainge and UNLV’s entire powerhouse starting 5? One and Done? No, we need Stay and Play, so college basketball regains name recognition of its great players. Ugh!

I’D RATHER GO to a Ricky Romero wrestling match at the Civic Auditorium than watch a 0-0 United soccer game in a $70 million dollar stadium.
