Happy Monday, Memphis! For those so inclined, get out your John Calipari hate towels because he will be featured in an ESPN 30 for 30 documentary this week.

19. Last Word: The Catechism of 1968, Downtown Hotels and Earth Day on Auto Row -

What happened 49 years ago this week in our city began long before the first sanitation worker walked off the job or the first “I Am A Man” sign was made. Maybe it was that long arc that explains the timing of what happened here in late March into the first week of April of 1968. For just about half a century now we have thought and thought again about that chronology, reviewed the details. And what we have is a sort of catechism of moments that if they had happened differently, we can’t help thinking, might have produced a different result.

Spring is in the air, which can only mean one thing – the Overton Park Greensward controversy is back on.

29. Last Word: Calipari's Return, Moss, McDowell & Stewart and Unemployment Up -

So John Calipari could be coming to town with his Kentucky Wildcats for the NCAA Southern Regional March 24 and 26 at the Forum. Aside from that local reminder of the long memory sports slights can have in our city, the regional in Memphis looks to be a big concentration of great college basketball in a city that hasn’t had a whole lot to cheer about recently on that front or the professional front.

30. New AD Bad News for Struggling Vol Coaches -

The hiring of John Currie as the University of Tennessee’s athletics director conveys a number of messages. One of them: Butch Jones is officially on the clock.

35. Getting To Know Dallas -

Once upon a time, I called Dallas home. But as many Memphians can attest when admitting to never visiting Graceland, as a Dallasite I didn’t hit many of the tourist attractions.

I’ve returned to Dallas off and on since moving away in 2000, mainly to attend sporting events. But in October we visited for a longer stretch, enough time to hit some of the city’s highlights. We simplified things and used a CityPASS ticket to lead our decisions.

40. The Press Box: Men’s Pro Tennis Needs a Slice of Apple Pie -

53. New Year, New Resolutions for Legislators -

If Tennessee football coach Butch Jones thought last Saturday night was bad in Columbia, South Carolina, he had no idea what was waiting when he got back to Knoxville.

65. Cubs’ World Series Victory The Start of a New Narrative -

You can buy into the goat, into the black cat that walked in front of Ron Santo in 1969, into infamous Steve Bartman and, well, into the whole notion that the Cubs were cursed for 108 years, if you wish.

68. State Rep. Feels Heat From Staffer’s Firing -

Like sands through the hour glass, these are the days of our Legislature’s lives.

As an NFL quarterback, Sunday is show time for Marcus Mariota. That’s when he suits up and does everything in his power to help the Tennessee Titans win football games.

81. Aggies DE Garrett: Talented And ‘Low Maintenance’ -

He’s a first-team All-American, possibly could be the first pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, and his head coach has called him “low maintenance.”

86. A Summer of Ingestion, Part 2 -

It’s been a summer of ingestion – not indigestion. I’ve read, I’ve watched. Last week I wrote about movies. This week the topic is books.

Not long ago I reviewed Chris Bachelder’s “The Throwback Special” (2015). So, you know I liked that novel about 22 guys meeting annually to re-enact one football play.
