CHICAGO - Magic Johnson joked about his involvement in the controversy surrounding Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling on Sunday while delivering the keynote address at the National Restaurant Association Show. Air Max 95 Outlet Australia . Johnsons remarks focused on his restaurant and food services businesses, but he did briefly mention the Sterling situation at the start of his 50-minute talk. "These last two weeks, I dont know," he said. "I thought I should go back to the food service industry because these last two weeks have been unbelievable. "But Im glad to be here and even with that said, I still have a big smile on my face." Johnson, the NBA Hall of Famer turned entrepreneur, was thrust into the news because part of Sterlings racist rant on the audio released by TMZ last month focused on him. Sterling complained that his female friend, V. Stiviano, had posed for a picture with Johnson and posted it on Instagram. Within days of the tape being released, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver announced that Sterling was banned from the league for life and he was fined $2.5 million. Silver also announced he would ask the other NBA owners to force Sterling to sell. Sterling made no public comments for a week before agreeing to do a lengthy sit-down interview with CNN. He apologized during the interview, but then veered into an attack of Johnson, saying he wasnt a good role model for the children of Los Angeles because he was promiscuous and developed HIV. Sterling also questioned what Johnson has done for minorities. "Man, I didnt know that taking a picture with someone would mean ." Johnson said Sunday. "Im not going to stop taking pictures, so I just hope it doesnt happen anymore. But theres no room in our society for racism." That was all Johnson had to say about the matter during his talk. He didnt stop to take questions from reporters after the event and none of the questions asked by the audience during the address concerned his controversy or his possible interest in buying the Clippers.

The Colts still came up short. Andrew Luck threw for 282 yards and one touchdown, Robert Mathis won the NFL sacks title and Adam Vinatieri became the seventh member of the NFLs 2,000-point club Sunday as the Colts routed Jacksonville 30-10 before watching their longshot hope of earning a first-round playoff bye vanish. Not that the Colts cared much about what was going on with the Bengals or Patriots. "Were in the playoffs and thats what matters," Luck said before knowing next weekends pairings. "We get to play at home, so it will be fun to not have to wait around to play." That will have to suffice for now after Indy handed the Jaguars (4-12) their third straight loss.

"I have no idea, unless you guys have any updates, but we know we have a home game. So well wait to see what happens." Indy (11-5) is now playing its best football of the year. After alternating wins and losses for six straight weeks, the Colts rebounded with three straight routs.

Donald Brown scored on a leaping 1-yard TD run, Trent Richardson followed that with a 2-yard TD run and Vinatieri booted a 23-yard field goal to make it 17-0 after one. Jacksonville looked like it would get back into the game after a 37-yard field goal and Henne got them into scoring position late in the first half. But Henne was picked off by Antoine Bethea, which set up Vinatieris milestone field goal. Luck opened the second half with a 7-yard TD pass to former college teammate Griff Whalen. That was good enough for the Colts. "Im glad were playing decent football going into the post-season," Luck said. "We know the post-seasons a whole different ball game and one-and-done. But to finish the regular season strong with these wins has been good."
