Yep, it was a good football weekend here at Casselbloggy HQ. Michigan won the Big Ten championship and a spot in the College Football Playoff, matched up against Georgia. And the Detroit Lions won their first game of the 2021 season. So that led off our WISE Sports Radio segment.
That’s probably fortunate because there’s not much baseball news to discuss with team owners locking out the players after Major League Baseball’s collective bargaining agreement expired, other than some good news from the Baseball Hall of Fame. (Pardon the audio briefly dropping out at the 6:45 mark.)
We kind of hijacked the segment with Michigan and Lions football talk — and some thoughts on the high school shooting in Oxford, Michigan — but thankfully got to chat about Buck O’Neil and his baseball legacy which is now where it’s long belonged, in the Baseball Hall of Fame. The only shame of it all is that Buck isn’t here to see his induction into Cooperstown.
