First off, congratulations to the Golden State Warriors on their 2022 NBA Title. They were on top of the game, were stricken with major injuries and then fought their way back to the top. We could see another champion crowned this week as the Stanley Cup Finals moves forward. This upcoming week will be baseball heavy with the College World Series in full swing in addition to the MLB schedule. As we get closer to closing the door on June, the football talking season is heating up in preparation for NFL Training Camps and college football media days in July.
NFL / COLLEGE FOOTBALL:
Almost no activity this week now that most mini-camps have concluded. Keep on eye on the Browns as the Watson and Mayfield situations continue to unfold. In regards to the college game, summer workouts and conditioning are underway all across the nation.
