New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara (41) is tackled by Green Bay Packers linebacker Ty Summers (44) in the first half of an NFL football game in New Orleans, Sunday, Sept. 27, 2020.


The stats suggest Green Bay Packers linebacker Ty Summers did just fine Sunday, especially for his first time playing defense in an NFL regular-season game.

Summers argues otherwise.

The 2019 seventh-round pick from TCU made a team-high nine tackles in a 37-30 victory at New Orleans after a shoulder injury knocked out starter Christian Kirksey. But after studying the tape, Summers gave his performance mixed reviews.

“I have high expectations for myself, so, I would say, not great,” Summers said. “Thank goodness it was enough to help get a win and so at the end of the day. That’s all that matters. But I’m just going to take things that I did right

Packers coach Matt LaFleur complimented Summers’ communication skills while noting the second-year pro still has plenty of room to improve.

“He did a great job of relaying the calls to the other 10 guys on the field and helping guys get adjusted,” LaFleur said. “So, I thought that was really good. He made some really good plays and then, like every player, there’s always a couple plays here and there that you’ve got to get cleaned up.’’

Summers was one of five Packers to miss a tackle when Kamara caught a pass behind the line of scrimmage and turned it into a 52-yard touchdown. Kamara was only a few yards beyond the line of scrimmage when Summers dove at him, but couldn’t bring him down.

“I had the chance to make a couple tackles that I thought were pretty good,” Summers said. “Looking at it, I was proud of myself

ORLANDO — As the Celtics reflected on their blown opportunity, their chance to reach the NBA Finals as the highest seed left in the Eastern Conference, Glenn Frey’s “The Heat is On” blared through the cozy AdventHealth Arena as the Miami Heat celebrated their return to elite status.

A steady dose of Miami’s Bam Adebayo doomed the Celtics to defeat.

The Celtics could have been on the floor celebrating, drowning in confetti and sharing deep hugs, but they just weren’t tough enough. They lacked the killer instinct. They panicked in crunch time. They were exposed for their lack of a true center.

They just weren’t good enough.

The Celtics will, however long this offseason lasts, lament this series. They gave away the first two games — or rather they were taken away from them — and when they needed to be perfect, they weren’t.

  • Tech stocks’ time in the spotlight is over, and investors should begin shifts to value stocks and cyclical sectors, James Paulsen, chief investment strategist at The Leuthold Group, said in a recent note.
  • The S&P 500’s brief Thursday correction marks “an opportunity to ‘broaden your bets'” before valuations rebound, Paulsen said.
  • Money supply growth surged in recent months on the back of Federal Reserve easing and the CARES Act. That trend has preceded economic expansions by 12 months in all eight recessions since 1960, according to the strategist.
  • The cyclical sectors that avoided bankruptcy during coronavirus lockdowns “may currently be positioned with the greatest upside profit leverage,” Paulsen said.
  • Still, investors should hold on to some growth positions as their fundamentals remain healthy, he added.

As remote work continues to gain popularity due to the pandemic, one thing we all have more of is family time. Traditional mindsets might view that as an obstacle to your business given all the distractions, but the truth is, like most things in life, your biggest disadvantage can become your biggest advantage if leveraged properly.

Bounce ideas off of family members. 

Nothing like your 7-year-old daughter to tell you that your startup idea is the dumbest thing she has ever heard. The last thing any entrepreneur wants to be surrounded by are “Yes men” and you can always count on family to be brutally honest and give you the hard truth to your face. 

Derive inspiration from children.  

I can tell you from my own experience that my children are some
