Rapid Fire Sports Review is a review of the sports stories that interested me the most and my brief commentary/opinion on those stories.
The commentary is meant to brief as I don't want to write an entire article on the stories listed here.
Derrick Rose Injures His Ankle
Derrick Rose is at it again with another injury, which forced him out of Friday night's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. This time Rose injured his ankle and while he might not be out for long this time, it still has one wondering how long will Derrick remain injury free.
This isn't my favorite story because I'm happy that Rose was injured. I just found the story interesting.
I don't mean to be a jerk about this but I'm seriously doubting Derrick's ability to remain in the lineup for a prolonged period of time.
Chicago needs Rose to be a contributor to their team. He can't do that when he's not in the lineup.
Chicago to be Joe Maddon's Den
The Chicago Cubs have hired Joe Maddon as their next manager. Joe Maddon will be asked to do something that's nearly impossible to do and that's to turn the Cubs into a winner.
I think that Maddon will go the way of many before him and I don't believe he will be in Chicago for the long term. This isn't meant to be disrespectful to Maddon. I just think that the Cubs are destined to be a perennial loser.
I hope that he's successful. I really do but I don't think that will happen.
Dave Brandon Resigns
Dave Brandon resigned as Michigan's Athletic Director (AD). It's about time that this clown is gone. I wish I was writing about him being fired but that didn't happen.
I won't rehash everything that Brandon did wrong. I will opine that Brandon didn't show the skill or aptitude to be an AD, especially for a big school.
Students have been demanding that Michigan fire Brandon. The school didn't listed to their students and Brandon acted like the back end of a donkey by disrespecting students.
Good riddance to Brandon. Michigan is better without him.
