World Wide Wildcats — News on UA athletes new and oldby Anthony Gimino on Oct. 29, 2009, under Sports
I hope to make this a semi-regular feature, because, as a freelance writer and man of leisure, I’m spending too much time on the computer and always running across stories about current Arizona Wildcats, would-be Arizona Wildcats and former Arizona Wildcats.
The least I can do is share them all.
Here are five recent stories that might be of interest:
Slam Magazine: A very interesting in-depth article about putting the Portland Trailblazers’ Jerryd Bayless through extensive offseason dribbling routines.
Arizona Republic: Former UA running back Chuck Levy has some legal trouble in the Phoenix area. Levy, an assistant coach at Chandler Basha High School, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs and possessing marijuana.
ESPN.com: Pac-10 blogger Ted Miller examines the difficulty of picking the best quarterback in the league. Could it be Arizona’s Nick Foles? There’s a lot of football to be played.
Washington Post: Gilbert Arenas is back from knee problems. Recapping his fine season debut with the Washington Wizards.
Houston Chronicle: There are now two UA alums managing in the major leagues, as Brad Mills leaves the bench of Boston’s Terry Francona and takes over the Houston Astros. Francona, as classy as they come, has lots of nice things to say about his former college roommate.
