A year ago Arizona State cornerback Omar Bolden didn’t know what where his football career was headed. Today there is still uncertainty, but his future looks brighter than it did last spring when the All-Pac-10 selection was diagnosed with a tore ACL in his left knee ending his senior season before it ever started.
There was really no “off” in Larry Fitzgerald’s off-season. Following a season where he caught 80 passes for 1,411 and eight touchdowns while enduring a rotating door at quarterback, Fitz has taken traveling to another level the past three months. His schedule has included stops in Australia, Europe, South America and Africa twice.
There’s no place like home. You don’t have to tell the Phoenix Suns, whose happy homecoming included a 125-107 pasting of the short-handed Portland Trail Blazers Monday night at U.S. Airways Center. Portland was without the services of LaMarcus Aldridge, Raymond Felton and Nicolas Batum who did not play due to injuries.
