The road to the World Series begins on Friday. Major League Baseball has shaken up its postseason to let more teams in and give clubs with a better record a slight advantage. The playoffs begin with four WildCard series. Previously, MLB had a one-game WildCard with two teams from both the American and National Leagues. Now, four teams from each league will play in two best-of-three series for the right to advance to the Divisional Round. The teams with the better record will host all three potential games. The top two division winners in the AL and NL will wait and play next week. The National League WildCard matchups are the Philadelphia Phillies vs. the St. Louis Cardinals and the San Diego Padres against the New York Mets. The Los Angeles Dodgers and Atlanta Braves will play the winners of those matchups. In the American League, The Tampa Bay Rays travel to play the Cleveland Guardians, while the Seattle Mariners go to Canada to face the Toronto Blue Jays. The Houston Astros and New York Yankees have byes into the divisional round. The WildCard matchups can be seen on ESPN/ESPN2 and ABC.
Usually a game that goes into overtime has an excitement level. Not the case on “Thursday Night Football” last night. Denver fans booed their Broncos many times during the game, and neither team scored a touchdown. Here’s Al Michaels and Kirk Herbstreit with a pretty good example of the lack of action with the Colts and Broncos near end of regulation. Final Score: Colts 12, Broncos 9. Yes, the Colts won it with another field goal.
The fan who was taken down by the Rams Bobby Wagner after running onto the field during “Monday Night Football” has now filed a police report over the incident. A rep for the organization, Direct Action Everywhere took credit for the wild scene at Levi’s Stadium and says that the report stems from a “blatant assault” by two Rams players. The two protesters disrupted the game by running on the field and then released two pink smoke bombs to make a statement. One of the protesters, a woman, was taken down before she got on the field. As the guy headed toward the Rams’ sideline, Bobby Wagner along with teammate Takkarist McKinley took him down. Security took over, and the fans were eventually detained, cited, and released. The stunt was to raise awareness for a trial involving the alleged theft of pigs from a factory farm. The organization said the man suffered a burn injury during the incident. After the game, Wagner said he jumped in to help security for safety reasons. “You don’t know what that fan got or what they’re doing,” the star linebacker said. Wagner has not been arrested or charged with any crime. Bobby Wagner’s head coach, Sean McVay, says he’s not concerned with the police report telling the media Wednesday, “We all know where Bobby’s intentions were, and I support Bobby Wagner.”
An NBA G-League game has spawned a superstar…at least by name. On Tuesday, G League Ignite played French team Metropolitans 92. One of the members of Metro 92 is named, wait for it, Steeve Ho You Fat. Steeve is a 34-year-old forward from Cayenne, French Guiana. It’s his second year on the team. The game was broadcast on ESPN2, and fans took notice of the incredible last name. The announcer even said, “[Steeve] Ho You Fat with the three. Yes, I just said that. That is that man’s name. Don’t tweet at me.” Ho You Fat got in on the fun by posting on social media after the game, “Looks like they really want that jersey.”
Antonio Brown is being dragged to court yet again … this time, a man in Florida claims the wideout sold him a bogus Richard Mille watch for $160K, fully knowing it was a phony worth far less. Ryan Kane filed a lawsuit against Brown over it all in Broward County earlier this week … alleging the NFL star ripped him off on the sale back on July 27.
In the suit, Kane says Brown assured him the watch — allegedly an RM 011 model — was real … and said it had a value “in excess of $400,000.” Kane says he bought it based on Brown’s claims — wiring the $160,000 to Brown’s company — but he learned a few weeks later the thing was a fake. Kane says after he asked around, he learned that Brown had bought the fake watch — and three others like it — from a dealer in Dubai earlier this year for less than $500 apiece. Kane is suing Brown for fraud and more … seeking to get his money back plus interest.
Sara Lee — a past winner of WWE’s famous ‘Tough Enough’ show — has sadly died at 30 years old, her mother announced Thursday. No cause of death was revealed. “It is with heavy hearts we wanted to share that our Sara Weston has gone to be with Jesus,” Terri Lee said in a heartbreaking post on social media.
The NBA hasn’t announced plans to expand the league, and LeBron James isn’t done playing — but that hasn’t stopped the superstar from planning for both eventualities. “I would love to bring a team here at some point,” said James at a press conference following an exhibition game in Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena, home to the NHL’s Golden Knights. Addressing NBA commissioner Adam Silver, who was not present, James said, “I want the team here, Adam,” adding the city has “the best fanbase in the world.”
James, 37, has a net worth north of $1 billion, per Forbes. He signed a two-year, $97.1 million extension with the Los Angeles Lakers in August, making him the highest-paid player on a per-season basis in NBA history. As a part-owner of Fenway Sports Group, James has stakes in Liverpool FC, the Boston Red Sox, Roush Fenway Keselowski Racing, and the NESN regional sports network. He is also a part-owner of AC Milan.
Silver has said the 30-team NBA “invariably will expand,” but it is not under active discussion right now. He has called Las Vegas and Seattle “wonderful markets,” and the league is playing preseason games in both cities. A report from September claimed that the league was planning to announce expansion to the two cities at those exhibition games, but separate reports came out shortly after saying that nothing was imminent.
A man is suing the New England Patriots Hall of Fame … claiming it ruined his one-of-a-kind, Tom Brady signed American flag — costing him potentially over $1 MILLION.
The guy’s name is Daniel Vitale … and he says in a new lawsuit, that back in early 2020, he acquired a flag that had been autographed by the GOAT.
In his lawsuit, Vitale says the flag was ultra-rare. It had flown at Foxboro Stadium during a Patriots vs. Dolphins game in 2001 — the same season that Brady first took over as the starter in New England — and was signed by the quarterback a few years later. Vitale said he believed it to be the only American flag known to be signed by TB12 in existence. Vitale says in the suit that in 2021, about a year after he got the piece, he reached out to the Pro Football Hall of Fame to see if it wanted to put it on display. He claims it did, but only after Brady and his former head coach, Bill Belichick, had retired. The HOF, according to Vitale, suggested he reach out to the Patriots Hall of Fame at Gillette Stadium to gauge its interest in the flag in the meantime. Vitale claims in his suit that the Pats HOF wanted it — and officials there promised him it would be “curated to the highest standard.” He handed it over but months later … he was considering asking for it back. He said due to Brady’s potential retirement and the subsequent skyrocketing value of Brady memorabilia, he was thinking about putting it up for auction.
But, that’s when he says he found out that the QB’s autograph had faded due to what he claims is the way the HOF improperly displayed the piece.
In the suit, Vitale said “neither the lighting at [the facility] nor the glass [it] used for case displaying the flag were designed to protect autographed sports memorabilia.”
He added, “there was a significant gap in the glass directly in front of the flag through which unfiltered light and heat could pass.” In the suit, he said due to the Patriots HOF’s mishandling of the flag, the value of it decreased by potentially as much as over $1 million.
He’s asking for damages.
