Collegian’s rare act could teach Serena Williams a thing or two

So far he has escaped all punishment. No suspension or disciplinary action of any kind. He might even get away with it.

The criminal’s name is Patrick McMorris. He’s a top San Diego state official who specializes in criminal justice, of all things. What he did Saturday against Arizona State, by current standards, remains scandalous: a shameless act of human compassion in broad daylight.

As seen briefly on CBS, McMorris, after helping manipulate wide receiver Jacob Cowing, unabashedly extended an arm to lift Cowing to his feet in blatant disregard for Street Cred Code on the last day. Even with the officials there, no flag was ever thrown!

This old sportsmanship was ignored by CBS, which renewed television’s empty habit of offering replays, often in slow motion, to players in demonstrations of self-aggrandizement, regardless of the outcome.

To that end—focus on the finish—the next day LSU defensive linear star Mason Smith became the latest in a string of needlessly handicapped. He lost this season, rupturing his ACL as he jumped to celebrate the intervention against Florida State.

But the entire week seemed like a sprint back. At the conclusion of another week of racing back, McMorris represented the actors greatly underrepresented.

Here in New York, populated by those who have been flattered to be the world’s most sophisticated sports and media fanatic, 40-year-old Serena Williams–the most ruthless, ruthless, lukewarm, self-deserving, vulgar rebel in the history of women’s tennis– He was ordained by the media and collected “tennis fans” As peerless players and nobles.

Having piles of solid evidence to the contrary of the indisputable latter has not only been ignored by ESPN experts and seasoned commentators, but has backed their blind bubbling and poured in with broad, unsupported testimonies of its overarching virtue.

And if the media were nauseating, so were the legions present whose sense of tennis unabashedly rejoiced when their three opponents made mistakes, including double ones.

What did they say to the young and vulnerable in their lives when they got home? “We tried to make things miserable and impossible for Serena’s opponent! We acted like obnoxious 12-year-olds! We acted like we were crawling!”

What did we know about her opponents? Good people? Bad people? Have they ever threatened the Assistant Referee, “I swear to God, I will take this King’s Ball and throw it down your throat!” Who do you know? Who cares?

It’s the best thing that ever happened to women’s tennis!

What happened to sports in our sports? Why now hit women’s sports?

In July, US soccer captain Megan Rapinoe, the attention-hungry, bragging and bullying – Those who chose the stages of the World Cup to be clearly anti-American Received the nation’s highest civilian honor, the Medal of Freedom, from President Biden.

Williams remained faithful to her spoiled and loser-professional persona to the end, delivering a quick and insincere handshake to the winner, Agla Tomljanovic – who displayed exceptional grace, patience and talent despite being marred by the uncivilized, unappreciative and hostile treasure throughout. the match.

During the on-court interview after the game with Williams, Tomlajanovic stood idly by while Williams thanked her entourage, but according to her true professional personality unlike the fabricated media lie, she made only a faint half-sentence confession. winner.

Williams’ three matches last week were the ugliest hours in US Open women’s tennis history. Playing their matches at Arthur Ashe Stadium – named after a hero, athlete and gentleman – means nothing damned.

Tuesday, while smashing rackets and screaming vulgar tennis, tennis star Nick Kyrgios lost – at Arthur Ashe Court.

And so Patrick McMorris of San Diego, to help his opponent get back on his feet, as shown on national television, survived so far out of disgrace. He was lucky.

It’s okay for Kai to summon players, but Boon needs cash too

Yankee Josh Donaldson probably thought he’d miss Labor Day.

That he didn’t initially sprint hard toward first base before being easily thrown into second on a ball of the wall on Monday inspired inexplicable smiles, but he didn’t break any ice between the YES video crew nor Michael Kay. On Show & Tell, Donaldson was revealed as the newest Yankee who ended up at a base below where he belongs.

Kay’s enhanced goodwill lies in the fact that he no longer pretends that viewers are so boring that they don’t see and therefore know better. Where he shrugged off the Yankees’ lethargy, from Robinson Kano to Gary Sanchez, he now talks about the untenable minimum of play.

However, the one thing he didn’t say and probably couldn’t speak was in hints. The Yankees, regardless of their WL record, play “Aaron Boone Baseball” – the least he can do is good enough.

Imagine if the Yankees, new and returning, showed up every season knowing that Boone doesn’t suffer the unforgivable.

Perhaps, after five seasons of Boone’s supervision, it’s time for YES’s Meredith Marakovic, in one of her relaxed affair with Boone, to ask why.


Rutgers Radio’s Football Voice Chris Carlin, Saturday on WFAN vs Boston College, took a leave of absence from “Go RU!” Hysteria to read a promotional advertisement for the “Official Rutgers Football Steakhouse”.

Since it was recently revealed that RU footballers spent $450,000 over 14 months delivering food to schools and taxpayers despite a $73 million sports department deficit, I thought the official steakhouse was DoorDash.

It’s time to get rid of PSL debt

Live and Learn: This week at YES Graphics, we read that Yankees shooters, including Jonathan Loasiga, throw “submersibles” anywhere from 97 to 100 mph. Given that snorkeling was (was?) a form of pitch-breaking, I didn’t know one could toss at 100mph.


At the start of Arizona-San Diego, CBS did not evade the ongoing investigation of three SDSU soccer players accused of the gang rape of a 17-year-old. CBS has provided a powerful and wise account.

At the Oregon-Georgia TV Summit on Saturday, ABC/ESPN’s Sean McDonough seemed oddly excited to report that Oregon’s new coach, Dan Lanning, “brought 21 transfers!” Given the current NCAA Division I scene, did he mean transfers or free agents?


The Losers NFL Survivor Rally should start soon. I didn’t see more underdogs in the house on opening day. Makes lean 1 week selections.


As we saw Saturday on ESPN’s ACC, Syracuse wide receiver Devon Cooper, a 2016 high school graduate from Los Angeles, formerly of Arizona and University of Texas El Paso, is a seventh-year student. The climate must have finally gravitated toward Syracuse.


Reader Dave Leigh, according to my recent lament over mother’s discarded baseball cards and the $12.6 million sale of an entry-level Mickey Mantle card, noted that his mother had donated “everything to Catholic charities.” Thus, Lee suspected, “Somewhere in the Peruvian Andes is a shrine to the two kidneys of Boer.”
