Most sports fans get hyped over big events. Championship games. Drafts. Ya know, the important stuff.
But do you know what gets me going??
A random Tuesday in April!!
Yesterday was filled with more breaking news and highlights than I know what to do with. But I’ll try….
Didi Vs. Stanton
Didi Gregorius and Giancarlo Stanton couldn’t have had more polar opposite days:
Didi: 4 for 4 with 2 home runs and 8 rbis (most rbis in a Yankees’ home opener)
Stanton: 0 for 5 with 5 strikeouts
The New York Yankees beat the Tampa Bay Rays 11-4 in their home opener. Didi singlehandedly won this game for the Yankees and was cheered appropriately (and showered with gifts). Stanton on the other hand, was booed. Yes, booed. The same Yankees’ fans who jumped up and down when Stanton hit 2 home runs in their season opener, and proclaimed Stanton could hit 100 home runs this season, are the same morons who booed him yesterday.
Most people are stupid, reactionary creatures, who can’t think more than 2 seconds ahead of their own face. It’s an embarrassing day to be a Yankees’ fan.
Canelo Withdraws From GGG Rematch
Speaking of embarrassing, Canelo Alvarez has withdrawn from his Cinco de Mayo rematch against GGG. Canelo is in the midst of an investigation by the Nevada Boxing Commission due to not 1, but 2, failed drug tests. The Commission has temporarily suspended Canelo, as they determine the ramifications from Canelo’s positive urine samples (clenbuterol) from February 17th and 20th.
The funny part is Canelo continues to claim his innocence. He says he’s always been a clean fighter. However, he’s also ready to accept whatever punishment comes his way. Yeah, that’s NOT HOW THIS WORKS!! If you’re being punished for something you didn’t do, you don’t just lay down and take it. You stand up and scream from here to kingdom come until your name is cleared.
This is a shame. I liked Canelo.
If you haven’t seen Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal from his Champion’s League match against Juventus yet, watch it immediately.
After you watch it 17 times, and pick your jaw up from the floor, come back….
Watch until the end of the video. Zinedine Zidane and Gianluigi Buffon’s reactions are priceless!!
There are no words to explain the beauty, and difficulty, of that shot….
Patriots Complete Curious Trade
The New England Patriots have made the Los Angeles Rams really good. At the same time, they did something slightly unprecedented; they stockpiled draft picks:
New England Patriots Receive: 2018 1st round pick (23) and a 6th round pick
Los Angeles Rams Receive: WR Brandin Cooks and a 4th round pick
From the Patriots’ perspective, they got more in return for Cooks than it took to get him. He was originally traded to New England for the 32nd pick in the draft. Plus, Cooks is entering his contract year. It’s still an odd trade by the Patriots, as they don’t generally build through the draft. Now equipped with two 1st round picks, two 2nd round picks, and two 3rd round picks, it’ll be interesting to see what the Patriots do come April 26th.
Was that the most exciting Tuesday you can remember?? If not, tell me about it in the comment section below.
