Sabrina Ionescu #1 jersey in WNBA and playoffs start tonight with Liberty at the Mercury.Sam Darnold and the 2-0 Panthers at the Texans with Davis Mills starting at QB. No Deshaun Watson sightings. Yanks have 9 games left in the season. Red Sox and Blue Jays on the road and finish up at home vs the Rays. Playoffs or bust.
Lamar Jackson needs to get paid by the Ravens. That was an awesome SNF game last night. Mahomes proved human in September. First loss and INT ever in his NFL career during the month of September. Yankees are 1.5GB in the wildcard. Got outscored by the Cleveland franchise 22-4 in last two games. Mets ended five game losing streak. Not looking good for the home teams. AP Top 25 came out and Iowa is a top five team not Oklahoma. Sorry Rhonda but it's true.
Bama was beatable yesterday. College Football is in for one hell of a season.Love the cleats Stefon Diggs. Bad Boys for Life. Have to represent in Miami.Love the Ravens tonight on SNF over the Chiefs. First home game of the season for the Jets and the Pats are coming to town. Can they pull of the upset? Why not.
Darius Slayton more of an overthrown pass then drop on his part from Danny Dimes. Giants can't rely on five field goals to win a game.Alabama is going to destroy the Gators tomorrow in Gainesville.Yanks 30-37 in the AL East. 11-8 vs Orioles. The Rays are 18-1. Yanks on the outside looking in for the 2021 MLB playoffs.
Got a little loco at Subway Series last night. Francisco Lindor his first three HR game.Fifteen minutes after I finished the show Clay Helton fired by USC.Jameis Winston five TD passes and Saints beat up Aaron Rodgers and the Pack. So I have to pay extra to watch ND barely beat Toledo on Peacock? You can not be serious!!
Opening Night for the NFL. Cowboys will get destroyed by the Bucs.Giants 5-12 and the Jets 4-13 this year. Don't think Daniel Jones is going to have a breakout season. Jets have too many holes this year. Hope Zach Wilson becomes the next Broadway Joe.Congrats Derek Jeter for making it to Cooperstown. How did that one voter not vote him in anyway?
Somerset Patriots stadium took a beating from that storm. And did you see the fans leaving the U.S. Open last night? Gerrit Cole pitched a gem vs the Angels last night. 15K's and zero walks. Leads the MLB with 215K's. Phils down 6-0 today to Nats and come back to win 7-6. Only 1.5GB of Braves in NL East.College football full steam ahead starting today. Can't wait for UNC to start their season. Go Heels!Keith McCants RIP.
I agree with my girlfriend. Let the Paul brothers fight each other. They can use my backyard. I hope Javy Baez finds his earring. What a sweep by the Mets. Down 5-1 in 9th and score 5 and win Game one. Scoring the winning run Javy Baez lost his earring. Still no word if they found it. Six straight days of College football starting tonight. Who's pumped for UAB vs Jacksonville State tonight on ESPN?
Mac Jones era begins in New England. Cam Newton released. He was done last year.La Tech Football what were you thinking with the football player wearing a chain around his neck? Yanks now have lost three in a row. Ohtani with his 42nd HR last night. Now seven games behind the Rays who are on an eight game win streak.
Mets players with the thumbs down. Don't try that crap in the Bronx. Disgraceful even if they said they were joking. They weren't joking. Jake Paul congrats on going eight rounds boxing last night. Tyron Woodley could you have been more aggressive last night. That was definitely a knockdown of Paul. The ropes saved him. But I didn't think it was a split decision. Woodley wasn't active enough in any round. NFL preseason finally over. Get on to the games that count. Hurricane Ida. I want everyone safe down south.
Gavin Weir, South Dakota LLWS star with his 2ND no-hitter of 2021 LLWS. Cole Beasley stick to football. Yanks going for 12 straight tonight in Oakland. Mets are 2-10 last twelve and first time this year four games under .500. Orioles ended their nineteen game losing streak last night vs Angels and going for two in a row today in a matinee at Camden Yards. Ohtani did hit his 41st HR today.
Yanks 10 in a row! Tony Romo comparing Jets Zach Wilson to Mahomes and Marino. Slow your roll. Let him play a regular season game first. Jets haven't had the best luck in starting QB's since Namath.The Alliance with the Big 12, ACC and Big Ten still doesn't compare to the SEC. But should make for some fun matchups in the future.
Carli Lloyd enjoy retirement. One of the greatest to play soccer.Yanks made up 10.5 games on the Red Sox in less than six weeks. The Mets have lost five straight going into the Wednesday matinee vs the SF Giants. They're currently 59-60 and Steven Cohen isn't happy.Jack Morris stick to broadcasting. Stupid and racist attempt at a very bad accent referring to Ohtani.
Not bad for a first start. Diamondbacks pitcher with his dad in the stands Tyler Gilbert thows a no-no vs the Padres.I know it's preseason football and I don't want to get too excited but Justin Fields looked pretty good for the Bears. Sam Ehlinger looked good too for the Colts in the game winning drive vs the Panthers.Can the NFL do their own version of the MLB "Field of Dreams? Why not.
Field of Dreams game. First of many by MLB. Yanks deserved better. I love NBA Summer League having sudden death in second OT. Bring that into the regular season!So you're going to need to be vaccinated or a negative Covid-19 test to go to a Saints game and Tulane Football. Don't mess with the Big Easy.
Yankees have another player go on Covid list. Have had 12 players sidelined this season for a variety of injuries and Covid-19. Playing 7 games straight right now and 11-4 going into today. Sox are 2-10 in last 12. Good time to get hot.NFL preseason starts tomorrow but don't expect to see a lot of starters playing. Love hearing that Jets QB Zach Wilson saying he's ok making mistakes during practice. That is the place to try out things.New book about Giannis shows Jason Kidd in what people are saying not in a good light when he was coach of the Bucks. He was one of the greatest NBA players. He hasn't done great as a head coach. He gets another shot with the Mavs. Let's see what he can do with Luka. Baylor football gets off with probation. NCAA really does a good job disciplining schools. Sorry that was sarcasm. Dennis Schroder bet on himself and lost. But good luck with the Celtics this year.
Congrats to the USA 2020 Olympic Team who trained and excelled at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic games. A pandemic couldn't stop them. From the Women's Volleyball team winning their first gold. the Wrestling team winning 9 medals, basketball Men and Women winning Gold, Simone Biles and the swimming team. So many stories. Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi won their 5th Gold Medal. Allyson Felix won her record 11th medal in Track and Field surpassing the great Carl Lewis. All of them are winners. Thank you for all the joy you brought me these past two weeks. I love this pic of Peyton, TB12 and Vinatieri, Had to post it.
Lionel Messi end of an era with Barcelona. Where will he end up?Yanks season high 9 games over .500 and Mets lead in NL East has shrunk to one game. Not a great year for NYC MLB baseball.USA Basketball going to play France again for Gold. Props to USA Baseball will be playing Japan again for Gold and USA Women basketball has the semifinals against Serbia. USWNT gets bronze beating Australia 4-3.
Mets 20-26 last 46 games their lead in NL East has shrunk to 1.5 games. No bueño.Sydney McLaughlin won the 400m hurdles and set a new world record. Love the Olympics.Brawl at Giants practice yesterday. Shit happens but peacemaker Daniel Jones ended up at bottom of pile. No bueño.
The fastest man in the world is an ITALIAN. Congrats to Lamont Marcell Jacobs. Won the Gold in the 100M at Tokyo 2020 Olympic games.Hey Novak pardon my french but the grow the fuck up. You're a 20 time Major winner. Stop your temper tantrums and throwing your racket in the stands. Enough!Anthony Rizzo has homered in both games as a Yankee. Now if only they could play the Marlins the rest of the season. Evander Kane hope you didn't bet against your Sharks this season while you were playing. That would be very bad.
Westbrook to the Lakers. Lebron, AD and Russ only have one ball. Max Scherzer to Dodgers. The rich get richer.Trevor Lawrence to Tim Tebow for a training camp touchdown. Could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Love the Olympics. Gold isn't the only medal that matters. Respect the journey. Congrats to USWNT won on PK's over Netherlands today. Bring on Canada!
Congrats to US Women's Basketball 3X3 winning the Gold Medal today. Loved watching the game. Simone Biles get better soon. Proud of the women stepping up and getting Silver in the Gymnastics competition.Aaron Rodgers is playing in GB in 2021. 2022 is a totally different story.
I love Kristian Blummenfelt of Norway. Won Olympic Triathlon yesterday. He trains eight hours a day. I want to spend a day with him.Yanks find new ways to lose every day. No hitter thru 7 and up 4-0 and lose 5-4 to Sox yesterday. Lost 3 of 4 over the weekend at Fenway. Nine games back now. US Men's Basketball first opening game loss since 2004. Argentina won gold that year. And yesterday Luka Doncic in his Olympic debut puts up 48 and they beat Argentina 118-100. You can't put a team together and have a two week training camp and expect instant chemistry.
Giannis has a game for the ages. 50/14R and 5 blocks. Bucks win first NBA title in 50 years and he's only 26. USWNT first loss in 44 matches and couldn't come at a worse time in the opening match of 2021 Tokyo Olympics. Next up New Zealand. Yanks have won 3 straight. Mets take 2 of 3 from Reds in Cincy behind one hitter by Marcus Stroman today.Big Ben reported to Steelers camp today for 18th season. TB12 played all last season with torn MCL. He has superpowers.
Richard Sherman what's going on man?Would you consider the Nets season a success? I don't think so.Vlad Jr. showed love for this dad with his glove last night at the All-Star Game. HR is his debut and the youngest MVP of the classic EVER.Saquon Barkley wants to be paid for his endorsements going forward in bitcoin. Focus on the field and less on your brand.
Back to back HR Derby wins for Pete Alonso.Ohtani will bat leadoff and also be the starting pitcher tonight for AL team tonight in MLB All-Star game. AL has won seven straight classics. And glad they got rid of the home field advantage to the winner. Good riddance. MLB's Rob Manfred another great sports commissioner says the 7 inning doubleheader is gone next year and the man on second in extra innings could be gone in 2022 too. Great move. USA Men's basketball lost their second straight exhibition game last night to Australia. Haven't happened since the professionals started playing for the national team in 1992.
I loathe PK's to decide soccer matches. Sudden death is the only way to decide a championship. English fans are disgusting for their racism toward their own players. Love Ohtani in the HR derby and starting pitcher for the AL then heading out to the field so he can hit and field. Stephen A. Smith doesn't like that he uses a translator. $12M a year for his thoughts. Only in America.Messi wins first major championship for Argentina. Mazel Tov. 20 majors for Djokovic. One more and wins all four majors this year.
So Japan has a BIG COVID problem but the Olympics must go on. Money, money, money! No fans though. But we do have NBC to bring us all the events.England in first European Final ever. First final in 55 years when they won the 1966 World Cup. Lightning win back to back Stanley Cups. Champabay!!!!
Suns get Game One but Giannis had one hell of a block. Just want a good series but can't see Chris Paul losing after getting to his first NBA Finals in his 16th season. Jacob deGrom is human. Fastest to 1500 K's but gave up two HR's today vs Brewers. Adam Gase is going to be offensive coordinator at Lincoln High School in his hometown of Ypsilanti, Michigan. That's what he should be coaching.
Soul cap aquadynamic advantage? Hell no. Shohei Ohtani first all-star hitter and pitcher in the same season. Hitting yes but pitching not by his last appearance in the Bronx. But definitely will bring more eyeballs to the All Star game. Yanks 42-41 after losing 2 out of 3 to Mets at Yankee Stadium.Rachel Nichols said Maria Taylor got job due to race instead of merit. Taylor's contract is up at end of 2021 NBA Finals. I have the Suns in 5.
Weed is not a performance enhancing drug. It enhances a lot of things but athletic performance is not one of them. Sha'Carri Richardson made a mistake and took responsibility for her actions. She lost her birth mother. A terrible situation. Time for WADA to get into the 21st century. Subway Series first game today and Yanks are getting beat up badly by the Mets. Watching Aaron Boone on the dugout steps looks like a man who has lost his way.England beating up Ukraine 4-0 in the Euro 2020 quarters. Look very strong. A dad's love for her son. Vlad Jr. is having an amazing season for the Blue Jays. Leading vote getter for the 2021 All-Star Game.
How cool was it for Gwen Goldman 60 years after her letter to become a bat girl for the Yankees came true last night. Yanks lost their fourth straight. 40-38.Serena Williams withdrew from her first round match at Wimbledon today due to injuries. Is this the end of an era?Paul George 41 a playoff career high last night and kept the Clips alive vs the Suns. Now down 3-2. Ty Lue is now 10-2 in elimination games. Can they win the next two and without Kawhi? We shall see. Tonight is Game 4 Bucks @ Hawks. Ice Trae needs to have a huge night. Giannis and Middleton had huge Game 3's. Can it continue tonight?
Carl Nassib I look forward to the day when your news is no longer news. Good luck next season with the Raiders.Becky Hammon should be the new Trail Blazers coach. First transgender athlete in Olympics. Good luck to New Zealand weightlifter Laurel Hubbard.
Ben Simmons work on your game this summer. A lot. Take a page from Kobe. Yanks won five of last six and triple play yesterday to end game vs A's. I'm going to the game on Wednesday.Islanders huge Game 5 tonight vs Lightning. Huge OT win for Vegas last night in Montreal. Love the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Game 7 for Nets-Bucks tomorrow night. Still can't believe that the Sixers blew game 5 at home to the Hawks but props to said Hawks for never giving up. Ben Simmons I know what you need to work on a LOT this summer. Props to Paul George for carrying the Clippers to a huge game 5 win at Utah. No Kawhi no problem.
KD a game for the ages last night. 49 points and a triple double to boot. James Harden played but was a non-factor. Game 6 next in Milwaukee. Giannis and the Bucks with their backs to the wall. Love the USWNT's new jersey. Kawhi Leonard could be out the rest of the playoffs. Record number of all-stars hurt this postseason. Lebron tweeted about it today. Not enough of an offseason. Hey NFL players and coaches, no vaccine and it's going to be a bumpy upcoming season for you all.
Chris Paul first playoff sweep in his career. Led Suns with 37. Reigning MVP Jokic got ejected. Nuggets heading home. Suns wait for Clippers-Jazz winner. Nets could be in big trouble without Harden and now Kyrie in Game 5 vs the Bucks. KD needs help going forward or this could be over quickly.Yanks 5-13 last 18. Mets host Cubs for four games starting today. Mets have best record in MLB at home, 17-6. Just took 2 of 3 from the Padres at Citi Field. Golden Knights four wins from the Stanley Cup Finals. Islanders only three wins away after taking home ice advantage from the Lightning yesterday 2-1.
Novak Djokovic wins 19th Grand Slam title after being down two sets. 2 wins away from winning all four majors in one season.I need to go to the Negro League Museum in Kansas City. Nets and Islanders play today at 3pm today. Harden still out. Islanders looking to pay back the Lightning for beating them last year.
NCAA will "consider" the use of March Madness marketing and branding for the Women's basketball tournament. Consider? Time to step up and give the women all the same benefits as the men.Congrats Golden Knights. Now eight straight years the President Trophy winner has failed to make the Stanley Cup Finals. Avalanche sent packing. Next up for Vegas, Montreal. Lightning and Islanders have a rematch from last year. Nothing beats the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Need to watch "The Kings" on Showtime. About the careers of Hagler, Leonard, Duran and Hearns. Fantastic documentary.
Knick Fans how do you feel about Donovan Mitchell going for 45 last night for the Jazz in ther win over the Clippers? That has to sting.CFP playoff talking going from 4 to 12 teams but could lead to teams playing 16 or 17 games. It's all about money and not the health of the athletes.I called it sticky stuff but this Spider Tack is being used by MLB pitchers and not sure what to believe now about Gerrit Cole. He didn't really answer the question. We don't want another steroid scandal situation in MLB.
Did Floyd hold up Logan from being knocked out? Floyd threw 13 punches a round and Logan landed 13% of his punches. Floyd says, "work smarter, not harder." He made $1M before leaving the lockerroom. Sounds smarter to me but for a boxing enthusiast it was a bad night for boxing. Yanks got a bad call on Odor. That pitch in the 9th was way outside. But right now the Yanks are 31-29 and the Red Sox got their first sweep at Yankee Stadium since 2011. Had lost the last 11 series there. Not good at all. Nick Saban just got an extension at Alabama that will take him to his 77th birthday. Joe Paterno was coaching til he was 84. Saban is going into his 15th year at Bama. How many more titles does he have in him? The sky's the limit.
It's finally here. Chad Ochocinco's boxing debut. His buddy Channing Crowder says he's wearing PJ's because it's "night night" for Chad. And of course Logan Paul with over 30 pounds on Floyd Mayweather tonight too. I know it's all about the money but this stuff is getting absolutely ridiculous. Julio Jones to the Titans. Yawn. Ryan Tannehill is no Matty Ice. Luca Doncic had 29 in the first half today for the Mavs and they were still down eight to Clippers in Game 7. And the Clippers are currently on a 21-2 run and up 14 at the end of the third. Can they trade the rest of the team? Well keep Tim Hardaway Jr. But Porzingis is no longer a unicorn. Was he ever one to begin with come to think of it? Sixteen year old goalie Taya Currie first female player to be chosen in Ontario Hockey League Draft. Best of luck.
Lebron loses his first ever first round playoff series. Devin Booker 33 at the half, 47 for the game in the Suns first series win since 2010. Love the new blood in the NBA playoffs. Floyd please retire the Great White Hype Logan Paul. Fernando Tatis 17 HR's in 40 games this year. Padres on the way to a special season.
Dame was on fire last night and still wasn't enough. 55 points. Dame is NEVER getting a ring in Portland. Giovani Bernard those are some serious quads. I need to do more squats.Love WNBA getting more coverage. Kia Nurse hit a GW buzzer beating last night for Mercury.
