Sports get in touch! Isotopes’ ‘Breaking Bad’ home run celebration is angering some readers
May 26 – I, for one, am outraged that the Isotopes are glamorizing a meth production celebration for the hit home run. Where is the adult here? Coach? chief executive? For those of you who have lost loved ones to this illegal drug epidemic, I really hope Topes management will recognize what a bad idea this is. For those of you who take small, impressionable children to play, cover your eyes! Look away, children!

I followed Michael Block for 18 holes in the opening round of the PGA Championship qualifier in Santa Ana. Walking alongside him down the fairway, little did I know at the time that he would finish in the top 15 in the PGA and be the only club pro to do it. Quite a celebrity!

All of the extensive media coverage of the New Mexico state fiasco over the past few months and no one associated with the NMSU basketball program are being criminally charged in the events leading up from the Aggies boarding the bus in Las Cruces to the happened to the bus returning from Albuquerque ? The signal there is that no accountability is required of any aggie player, coach or administrator. The person driving the infamous yellow Camaro has not even been found. And the sports director even received a long-term contract extension. Well, they don’t call it the Wild West for nothing.
