There are dozens of reasons to hate the Pats, but they’ve never been more pronounced than the present as it has become clear that the unholy trinity atop the organization — owner Robert Kraft, coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady — are a bunch of Donald Trump fanboys.

Less than 24 hours after the Indiana Hoosiers finished the Big Ten season with a 15-3 record, it was announced that head coach Tom Crean won the Associated Press’ Big Ten coach of the year award.

Some clamored that Wisconsin’s Greg Gard should win the award as he led the Badgers to a 12-6 conference record after the departure of Bo Ryan. However, it was Crean who won, and he deserves every bit of it.

Last year, Indiana fell apart down the stretch as the Hoosiers lost six out of their last 10 regular season games. Add in a few incidents with players off the court over the past year, and it looked as if Crean was losing control over his team.

On Tuesday, Dan Le Batard said on his radio show that Lebron James a “lazier player now than we’ve seen in 10 years.”

The owners of the Chicago Cubs joined Mexicans, Muslims and Megyn Kelly on the lengthening list of things Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump does not care for on Monday.

The voice of America’s increasingly angry hordes of half-literates has taken exception to the fact members of the Ricketts family, which owns the ballclub, are apparently dumping millions of dollars into an anti-Trump super PAC.

 

Like much of what Trump says, the tweet is an accusatory and threatening half-truth.
