weekend wrap up

Start Your Engines

Fired up for a new week with lots to talk about.

 

Rev up the small talk,

The Last Night’s Game


NBA (NATIONAL BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION)

When your temper gets the best of you. LeBron James’ home debut with the Los Angeles Lakers didn’t have a Hollywood ending. Not only did the Lakers lose to the Houston Rockets but toward the end of the game a fight erupted, punches were thrown, players were ejected and yesterday the league handed out some serious suspensions. HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SHOT


OVERTIME

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are on their first international trip as a married couple and as part of the trip they attended the Invictus Games in Sydney. The Games were started by Prince Harry to “inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect for wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women.” Over 500 competitors from 18 different nations are competing in this year’s event, which runs through October 27. A COMPETITION FIT FOR A KING


SIDELINE STAT

Houston Texans (NFL – National Football League) quarterback Deshaun Watson was too injured to fly, but not too injured to play. But how? Watson is suffering from a bruised lung and sore ribs that forced him to skip the team flight and take a 12-hour bus ride to Jacksonville, where he led his team to a victory. BUT WAS IT A GREYHOUND BUS? 


COACHES’ CORNER

UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) fighter Conor McGregor is on a promotional tour for his Proper 12 whiskey. During the tour, he handed out 10 World Series tickets to Boston firefighters. In case you need an excuse to hit the liquor store, $5 from each case of his whiskey goes to first responder charities. A PROPER DEED

The World Series begins on Tuesday with the Boston Red Sox taking on the Los Angeles Dodgers. Stay tuned for this week’s five things to know where we’ll fill you in on everything you never knew about the series. BATTER UP


WHAT TO WATCH

Tackling prices on The Price Is Right is nothing for former Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Devin Goda. He is the newest addition to the show’s team of models. A NEW CAR!
