The LuLac Edition #3391, December 28th, 2016
5. LOCAL SPORTS FIGURES PASS….This year we lost George Curry longtime Berwick Football coach, NFL Kicker Lou Michaels and NBA star Gene Guarillia.
4. LOCAL TEAM EXCELS…..The Wilkes Barre Scranton Rail Riders won the Championship in 2016.
3. PEYTON GETS SECOND RING…..Peyton Manning walked away from his storied football career with another Super Bowl ring as the Broncos prevailed over the Carolina Panthers.
2. CAVS RESCUE CLEVELAND.......LeBron James returned to Cleveland and promised them a championship. It was the first for the city since the 1964 Bill Wade (See Moving On feature, Dec. 26th, 2016) team beat the New York Giants. The Cavs were down 3 games to one and came back.
1. THE CUBS WIN…………The Cubs, like the Cavs were down 3 games to one but we must always remember the Chicago team was playing the Indians. First time since 1908 for the Cubs, Joe Madon from Hazleton was the manager…..all that stuff took the sting out of it for me.
