Happy Friday, everyone!
We hope everyone is doing well and having a great ending to the work week.
Any fun plans for the weekend?
We know two local athletes have plans for this weekend – that would Cam Newton and Stephon Gilmore, who will be on the field Sunday when the New England Patriots host the Denver Broncos.
According to the Boston Globe yesterday, Newton’s presence on the practice field seemed to excite his teammates, including Gunner Olszewski, who told Jim McBride that he’s “fun to play with.”
With Newton on the sidelines earlier this month due to testing positive for the coronavirus, the Patriots suffered their second setback of the season to the Kansas City Chiefs, who recently signed Le’Veon Bell, per multiple reports. Yet, with why exactly did the Chiefs sign a player at a position that seems to be “replaceable” this year?
Let’s switch gears to sports betting where Turner Sports has signed some deals with both DraftKings and Fanduel. However, it does seem like DraftKings was the real winner in this big announcement.
Did you watch the end of last night’s American League Championship Series (ALCS) between the Houston Astros and Tampa Bay Rays? Well, in case you did not, the Astros won and might be poised to win the next two games after falling behind, 3-0.
Let’s go back to football for our final story and headline of the day – do you know who Arch Manning is? If not, he’s the nephew of Peyton Manning and is a pretty good high school quarterback!
That’s it for now, but you know we’ll be back for another blog post (or two) later today, so stay tuned!
