Happy with Bo Nix for the Broncos. Took the best player available at our most needy position after moving on from Russ (miss u bb enjoy the $39 mil). I think I said 'cautiously optimistic' when we signed Russ but now I actually mean it. We actually can sort out the future with a promising QB, vet coach and a solid squad. Not expecting world beaters but its something.

Avs and Nuggets took care of business in the first round as expected, but interesting challenges ahead. Avs will face one of two recent Stanly Cup participants, one of which were champs. Nugs will face the hottest team in the playoffs on both sides of the ball. The upcoming Jokic vs Gobert wars will be cinema. Not expecting a ring from either this year but if both team make it thought this round its not out of question.

And the Rockies...well best stadium in the league am I right fellas. We go down one pitcher and our season is over. I don't care how good Kris Bryant looks in a cast. he looks good in everything its a given.

Lando Norris won his first ever Formula GP yesterday in Miami. It was cool; I'm genuinely happy for him. Honestly, I'll take ANYONE winning over Max Verstappen these days, but that it was Norris, a kid who'd never done it and came so close so many times, made it extra satisfying.

#2 ranked PGA Championship golfer Xander Schauffele netted his first major win at the Valhalla Golf Course in Kentucky this weekend. Well deserved; he's been in the mix for quite a while, and has finally got that monkey off his back.

BUT, that's not the story of the weekend; the trophy for that honor goes to #1 ranked PGA Championship golfer Scottie Scheffler who got ARRESTED before the start of the 2nd round of the event Friday morning.


Apparently, there'd been a fatal accident on his route to the tournament earlier that morning, and Scheffler tried to drive around police barricades to make it to the golf course. They attempted to stop him, and he ended up dragging an officer a few feet and injuring him. They postponed his arraignment until next month, but oof, he's facing several misdemeanor charges and a FELONY charge for assaulting a police officer. I know little is likely to come of this; the objective letter of the law doesn't necessarily reflect the severity of the crime, and "white, rich, and famous" play by a different set of rules, but I know if my broke, no-name black ass dragged an officer an inch, they'd throw the book at me.

Congrats, Xander. Good luck, Scottie.

Charles LeClerc, a native Monegasque, won the Monaco GP in Formula 1 today!! I'm dumb happy for him. Even happier that Red Bull was no where NEAR a podium today between Perez's crash in the first sector of the first lap, and Verstappen's inability to un-sandwich himself between the Mercedes back in 6th. Fucking MONACO. I can only imagine the celebrations going on right now!! If LeClerc isn't pissy drunk already, he WILL be within the next hour or so.

And my guy Bottas. He ran a hell of a race even if it didn't net him any points. Great start at out lights out picking up 3 places immediately that got negated when Perez and BOTH Haas cars decided they didn't want to race anymore. Got another great start and held a midfield position for most of the race. I was most impressed he managed, on old, hard tyres, to keep Lance Stroll, on new soft tyres at bay for the last few laps, and finish a respectable 13th. Now I just worry about his seat for next year. Hulkenberg as been signed for Audi, and Zhou is a young rookie with promise; where does Bottas slot in? Talking heads are speculating he might go back to Williams (ugh,) but I think with 10 wins under his beat, he deserves better than that and a better car...

Yeah, disappointing. I rarely get excited about boxing anymore (the last time being Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones a few years ago,) and I really wanted to see this one. Hopefully, this is just a postponement and not a cancelation. Tyson is notoriously bloodthirsty; I can't imagine he'd let a little ulcer delay his lust for violence for very long...
Probably just a month or two if it's only due to the ulcer, since he was apparently back to "100%" a day or so later. Idk...if that's the case did his training really get delayed all that much?? There may be more to it but we wouldn't know anytime soon anyways.


*edit* a bit more on that -

New date will be announced on July 7th.

Announced early I guess, because the new date is now November 15.
