It’s Friday.

 

Mic drop,

The Last Night’s Game Team


NFL (National Football League)

When you let them get the best of you. Last night was the first preseason game of the 2018-2019 season and it was played at in Canton, OH, home of the NFL Hall of Fame. Tomorrow, eight new inductees will be enshrined at the HOF but there will be one notable absence, former player Terrell Owens. He is an inductee but is not attending because he doesn’t like how the media portrayed him during his career nor the fact that his name was on the ballot for three years before he was voted in. He’ll be the first living inductee to miss the ceremony. THAT’LL SHOW THEM

 

Overtime

It may look like NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing) fast tracked to Halloween this weekend at Watkins Glen with drivers wearing skeleton gloves. The gloves, inspired by Dale Earnhardt Jr., will be signed by the drivers after the race and then auctioned off to benefit Nationwide Children’s Hospital. NO BONES ABOUT IT

 

Sideline stat

Court documents revealed that Detroit Pistons’ Blake Griffin (NBA – National Basketball League) has been ordered to pay over $3 million a year in child support for his two children with his ex-fiancée. While that may seem like a lot to us, that equates to 9% of his $35 million in annual earnings. In case you’re wondering, he was also once linked to Kendall Jenner. TAKE A CHECK?

 

Coaches’ corner

Former troubled NFL (National Football League) quarterback Johnny Manziel has a new job and yes it’s playing football, not working undercover. (He once missed a football game due to injury and went to Vegas in a disguise instead of supporting his teammates on the sideline. He was quickly outed). Manziel will make his CFL (Canadian Football League) debut tonight for the Montreal Alouettes, his first regular season game as a professional football player since December 2015. THINGS ARE LOOKING UP

 

What to watch

The NBA is playing its third game in Africa on Sunday (local time). The game, which benefits the Nelson Mandela Foundation, will be played in Pretoria, South Africa and feature Team World vs. Team Africa – players born in Africa or with direct family ties. GAME TIME
