Goodbye To One Of Our Own
The Opening Tip
Hello & Happy Almost Weekend - It's the Corner Three!
Oh Yeah, The Sixers
1. Little over 2 weeks till the start of camp, what's got you excited?
It may feel like we've talked about it at length, but we really haven't talked enough about just how different and dangerous a team this can and will be with a healthy/healthier than last year James Harden. I'm excited to see how refreshed he actually is and how the many newcomers acclimate to playing with Joel Embiid.
2. Will you be a regular season or playoff guy this year?
I want to be a playoff guy so bad but I hold so true to the idea that the regular season is where you can begin to experiment and more importantly, start toying with lineups.
3. How did you cope this summer?
This summer was honestly a piece of cake, the Kawhi shot then Jimmy leaving was so much tougher and impactful, probably because I wholeheartedly resigned to the fact that that team had it in them to at least make it to the finals.
4. Birds home opener Monday. Official prediction?
27-20 Birds, Haason Reddick game saving sack loading
Rest In Peace, Mike DiTore
About a year ago, Ricky-guy Mike was diagnosed with brain cancer. The above photo was after he'd completed his first round of radiation (with wife Rebecca).
We lost Mike this week after he lost the battle with cancer. Mike was 30 years old, and leaves behind his wife Rebecca and his two sons Dante and Dominic. Mike was loved by many.
We at the Ricky send our love to Mike's friends and family. There is a GoFundMe set up for his wife and sons. You can donate here.
GET THIS SHIRT! Just join the Bark In The Park team and raise at least $50.
We're raising money for Providence Animal Center so they can save homeless pets.
The goal is $16,000 raised and 100 team members. We're up to $6,900 and 51 so far.
Thanks to our sponsors MortgageCS, Draft Kings, LL Pavorsky, Body Bio and Briggs Auction.
LL Pavorsky... the first L stands for 'love' and the second L stands for... actually no idea what it stands for. Luxury? Loose? Lazy? Whatever it is, if you need an engagement ring, LL is the only place to go. Just shoot him a note and set up an appointment at firstname.lastname@example.org. LL of course is a sponsor of our Bark In The Bark team for Providence Animal Center.
Speaking of Bark In The Park sponsors, Mortgage CS stepped up! They're not only a sponsor of our run team, but the first ever Spike & Rebel Food Truck Festival at Bark In The Park, featuring some plant based food trucks (for the first time ever). If you're in the market for a house, or maybe some debt consolidation, Mortgage CS should be your first stop. Just go to mortgagecs.com/ricky and you'll get VIP treatment.
Peace, Love and Process
