Other Sports Catch-All

Is this where we talk NHL?

Now that we've gotten cracking on having our own team here in SEA, I'm going to have to start following the sport.

Novak Djokovic tossed from the US Open after hitting line judge with the ball. If this wasn't 2020, this would be the single biggest sports scandal of the late summer.

Between this and his Covid tourney earlier this year, Joker is on pace to hit for the cycle in 2020-ness. Too bad the season ends after the US Open or he'd have a legit shot to take home "Peak 2020 Sports Figure."

As it stands, he's in the running with:

Urlacher
Kirk Cousins
Rudy Gobert
Dana White
Vince Mcmahon
Kyrie Irving
Curt Schilling (!)
Zach Plesac
Lou Williams

But Joker is all out of season and CFB hasn't gotten going with the craziest crazies yet and neither has the NFL.

My money is on any Trumper who still has lots of visibility to go:

Mike Leach
Jerry Jones
Bob Kraft
Brady

Who knows what they'll say/do in the next 90 days?!

Oof. Victoria Azarenka upsets Serena Williams. I guess the upside is that if Naomi Osaka wins in the finals, she's not going to get booed.

Hey there! I'm looking for cycling help. Is there a GWJ group for this?

Thanks!

Michael Jordan and Denny Hamlin starting a NASCAR team with Bubba Wallace as their driver. In this case, if the ceiling is the roof, the car's probably mangled to sh*t.

Bubba...don't get in that car!

They shoulda piped in boos for Bettman.

Thanks for everything Henrik.

Sorry we couldn't get you a cup. Now I have to kind of hope you get one with the Caps. Eugh.

I love this. Due to the vagaries of how Gymnastics is scored (I believe), Simone basically can't lose with this trick, because she can land it, and the difficulty score is so high that even if she doesn't land it well, no-one can get a score anywhere close.

Also, as they note, it is absurd that the main concern for this trick is "will you be able to get enough air" and she f*cking over-rotates it.

Hopefully this doesn't end up being known as "In Before the IOC Bans It Because a Black American Woman Can Do It."

Oh, the Figure skating model.

Well, she was a black French woman, but still…

What a f*ckin' day of sports.

50FR (men's) US Olympic Trials tonight.

Nathan Adrian.
Michael Andrew.
Caeleb Dressel.

Dressel's tat game on point.

War Adrian.

Am I the only one hoping that Sha'Carri Richardson is indeed the second coming of Flo Jo?

You're not wrong.

But where them nails at?

Since this covers all college sports, I'll put this here: Supreme Court rules against NCAA caps on student athlete education-related gifts and benefits. Yeah, this Supreme Court unanimously ruled against the NCAA.
