Moss to Buffalo

Even though it's the heart of summer and Kosmo has enjoyed chilling in his cave, he does have a little breaking news to report. Troy point guard Karin Moss, who will no doubt be one of the top seniors in the county this upcoming girls basketball season, has verbally committed to play in college at the University of Buffalo.
Congrats to Moss, a supreme ballhandler who is poised to have a big senior season for the Colts.

Michigan can produce good baseball players

Kosmo isn't all of a sudden going to proclaim anything nonsensical, such as Michigan is all of a sudden America's hotbed for producing Major League baseball talent.
As long as there are such things as snow and ice, that'll never be the case.
However, recent proof has been given that you can't completely ignore our state in terms of baseball talent.
Former Brother Rice standout D.J. LeMahieu, who was the Mr. Baseball Award winner in 2007, was called up to play for the Cubs in June, completing a fast rise to the majors after success in the minors.
Kosmo still remembers hearing about all the monster numbers LeMahieu was putting up at Brother Rice, so to see him shine at LSU and now in the majors is quite something.
In addition, Arizona has a pitcher from the state named Josh Collmenter. He was a member of those national powerhouse teams from Homer in the middle of last decade that not only put that tiny little community in the national spotlight, but also the state as well.
These two examples go to show that no matter how much snow, ice and cold there is, Michigan can still be home to some fine baseball players.

Unofficial practices in name only

In just over a month, the high school football season will begin with the official start of practice.
However, you could've fooled Kosmo, because given what he's been seeing, football practice has already started.
While spending time driving around the area in the Kozmobile, your seer has happened to pass by several high schools.
Of course, what has he seen while going past these schools?
Football players in helmets (no pads) practicing.
Call it "camps" or "voluntary workouts" if you will. It's all practice to the K-Man, which means the high school football season has "officially" begun if you ask Kosmo.
— Kosmo wishes to give a hearty congratulations to Birmingham Seaholm sophomore Francesco Ruffino, who was named Mr. Golf in the state of Michigan last week. It's definitely and an honor for anyone of any grade to be named Mr. Golf, let alone a sophomore.
