It’s Friday and that means it’s almost the weekend. It also means you have two days to pick up something for Mother’s Day. We're providing you with weekend conversation starters and life’s reminders.
One stop shop,
The Last Night’s Game Team
MLB (Major League Baseball)
- Into the rafters. The New York Yankees will retire Derek Jeter’s #2 jersey this Sunday. Jeter penned a heartfelt note thanking fans for their support of a young player who came up through the ranks to win five World Series rings during his 20-year career. It seems fitting that his number will be retired on Mother’s Day as Jeter and his wife, swimsuit model Hannah (Davis) Jeter, are expecting their first child.
PGA (Professional Golfers’ Association)
- Big year. First he wins the Masters and now this. Sergio Garcia hit a hole-in-one at the famed 17th hole at the Players Championship yesterday.
- Beer me. Unfortunately for golf fans it wasn’t Brooks Koepka who hit the hole-in-one. Koepka has partnered with Michelob Ultra to give away 95 cases of its beer (95 calories = 95 cases...clever) to fans should he hit a hole-in-one.
- Dedicated fan of Real Housewives and soon-to-be retired NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing) driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. is getting a reality TV show of his own. When he retires at the end of the season, he and his wife, Amy, will restore a historic home as part of their own home renovation show.
- Mitchell Trubisky, the #2 pick in the NFL (National Football League) draft, reported to his first day of Chicago Bears camp yesterday in his 1997 Toyota Camry with 170,000 miles. He promised the Bears’ general manager that he wouldn’t change and would drive his well-loved car that was passed down from his grandma to camp. Trubisky received a $19 million signing bonus but still stuck by his word.
- Just in time for Mother’s Day, East Carolina University’s football coach delivered great news to one of their walk-on players. Instead of delivering it to the athlete, he went straight to his mom with the news that her son, Kiante Anderson, is a recipient of a full ride scholarship to play football. Here’s the precious video.
