>> LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh a package deal? Hmm ….
>> Strasburg an All-Star? Unless the phenom bounces back from two straight losses, not if there’s a veteran out there who has pitched well throughout the first half of the season. There will be plenty of All-Star games for Strasburg in future years.
>> Hey, FIFA … we know you’re resistant to change, but move the ball back a bit on penalty kicks. Do you really want your World Cup matches decided on the equivalent of layups or football extra points? Give the keepers a fighting chance!
>> Attended the Hawaii Athletic Trainers Association seminar on concussions last night. Very informative, and look for much more on this topic in the Star-Advertiser later this summer.
