Since the day the Knicks ran Latvian unicorn Kristaps Porzingis out of town in February, long-suffering fans have clung to hope that the team might somehow not bungle all the cap room it created for the anticipated NBA free-agent frenzy now very much underway.

Ernest F. "Fritz" Hollings, the silver-haired Democrat who helped shepherd South Carolina through desegregation as governor and went on to serve six terms in the U.S. Senate, has died. He was 97. Family spokesman Andy Brack, who also served at times for Hollings as spokesman during his Senate career, said Hollings died early Saturday, The Associated Press reported. In a statement posted on Facebook, Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg called Hollings "truly a man in full – a history-making governor, a titan of the US Senate, and a peerless friend to all who were fortunate enough to know him.""Our state and nation have lost a real giant," he said. Hollings, whose long and colorful political career included an unsuccessful bid for the Democratic presidential nomination, retired from the Senate in 2005, one of the last of the larger-than-life Democrats who once dominated politics in the South.

While not much may appear to have happened since our celebrated return to Bloomfield Road two weeks ago, behind the scenes there have been two positive developments. It was almost inevitable that Owen Oyston was going to file an application to appeal against the receivership. It has been confirmed this week that his appeal has been unsuccessful and he has no further recourse to challenge the court’s ruling. It has also been confirmed that the submission by Blackpool Supporters’ Trust to have the ACV (Asset of Community Value) status of Bloomfield Road renewed for another five years has been approved by Blackpool Council.
