Letter to the Sports Editor (May 8)

The more things change, the more they stay the same

I was at the Trump rally and Rex Ryan, who introduced Trump, told a funny story. When he was an assistant coach of the New Jersey Generals, he called a play to give the ball to another back near the goal line instead of the great Herschel Walker. This resulted in a loss on the play.

Suddenly the phone rang and Rex was summoned to answer it on the sideline. It was Donald Trump, who stated “the next time you don’t give the ball to Herschel near the goal, you are fired.”

Fast forward to the present and Rex is still making the same mistakes but this time on defense.
