I don’t know if Dan Snyder decided on his own not to rebrand with Native imagery or the league and fellow owners forced it on him. It doesn’t matter. It’s a great day in the nation’s capital when Native people are no longer someone’s mascot for the local NFL team anymore.

When George Floyd’s daughter grows up, she is going to learn in detail all the monuments and symbols to racism her father’s death brought down and eliminated. Thinking about it now, it’s still surreal.

Perfect. Joe Pesci and Ray Liotta would be honored

Spare me a letter signed by intellectuals and prominent folks of all races, professions and backgrounds about the need for civil discourse. This is a curt lecture that should have been sent to Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey & the entire Silicon Valley six.

Every time I hear Billy Joel’s “Allentown” now I think of American newspapers, which are dying this millennium like Pennsylvania iron and steel plants in the 1980s. We have a chance to save one today, my friend @jimducibella ’s @virginianpilot . Let’s do it.

True story: Cavs cheerleader came up to me during ‘96 Knicks game. Said, “Are you Mike Wise from The NY Times? OMG, I read everything you write.” I went to talk to her after game and she blew me off. I walked into locker room. Patrick Ewing looked up and smiled: “April Fools.”

Charles Oakley once ordered a Big Mac at Burger King, and they got him one.

Cavs locker room has a strong reefer aroma to it tonight. Hey, it's Cali. You're down 2-0 and it's all about pain control. #NBAFinals 

This is the scene of the largest ever physical gathering against the Wash. NFL team. #ChangetheMascot  #changethename

Penn State doesn’t get to decide JoePa’s legacy: I know

Gene Hackman was 56 years old when “Hoosiers” was released in 1986. Today he turns 90. Happy Birthday, Coach Norman Dale. All right you Hoosier hysteria hoopheads, best scene or line from the movie?

If I'm Ayesha, I say I got hacked by Riley.

Congrats to @ladygaga , who will be the featured halftime act at the New England-Carolina Super Bowl in February.

Penn St. doesn’t get to decide JoePa’s legacy; survivors do. Thanks @TheUndefeated  & @espn  family for love & support
