Update: ESPN contacted the Heisman Trust and that Bush report is false. No decision on Bush has been reached and trust won't meet again for a bout a month..11:03 am

The Heisman Trophy Trust is expected to strip  the New Orleans Saints and former USC running back Reggie Bush of his 2005 Heisman Trophy and leave the award vacant, Yahoo Sports reported.

Two sources close to the trust said the organization is completing an investigation and will agree with the NCAA's finding that Bush accepted improper  benefits while at USC and was ineligible during the 2005 season, according to the report.


Bush would become the first player in the 75-year history of the Heisman Trophy to have the awards taken away.

Bush is expected to play this Thursday as the New Orleans Saints play the Minnesota Vikings in the Superdome.  The game is pitted as the NFC championship game, which the Saints won earlier this year enroute to the Super Bowl.

It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
