10 Things You Probably Missed This Week

In the past week: The NHL trade deadline happened, Rick Nash is a Boston Bruin, Justin Thomas is a certified asshole, James Harden sucked the soul out of Wesley Johnson, Rob Gronkowski is supposedly coming back to the Patriots (maybe?), and Michael Holley left WEEI. Oh, and the NFL combine checks in at #1 on the list of things nobody cares about.

With everything that went on, I’m sure there were some stories that slipped through the cracks. But don’t worry, that’s what I’m here for. I got you.

1. Sean Miller vs. ESPN

The University of Arizona basketball coach got himself in some hot water last weekend when ESPN reported that Miller had offered to pay $100,000 to ensure that star freshman DeAndre Ayton came to Arizona. Ayton is likely to be the first pick in the draft.

Sports Illustrated has since proven the initial story to be incorrect, but ESPN is gonna do what ESPN does best. Lie.

2.NCAA Conference Tournaments

The Big Ten or B1G (whatever the hell you want to call it) conference tournament started yesterday. It brought with it this gem.

She wants a foul.

3. Louisville’s Choke Job

Technically is was 5 points in about 1.4 seconds, but whatever way you cut it, that’s not great for the brand.

4. Gary Bettman is Clueless

I mean….okay?

5. NHL to Seattle?

This seems likely, especially if Seattle gets their NBA team back (which they should). The real question here is why the hell did they tweet this using 720 seconds? Are we too cool to just say 12 minutes?

Bonus props to all the Big Ballers out there that purchased season tickets to something that may never exist.

6. Steph Curry the Golfer

Hey at least Steph has the Chase Mobile App for problems like this, right?

7. This is……Awkward

Weird move.

8. Jon Rahm is a Great Guy

9. Don’t You Dare Run Up The Score Around Jordan Clarkson

The 76ers were up 9 with 11 seconds to go and the shot clock was turned off. Then this happened.

10. Yawkey Way

Tbh I don’t care if the street is named Yawkey Way or not. But holy hell, pick something different than Jersey Street. What a boring ass name. 4 Jersey Street is the new address of Fenway Park. That has a shitty ring.

*Bonus #11. Nick Quaglia 

Our very own Nick Quaglia (@NickQuag) has indirectly banned me from ever watching baseball again. Seems kinda harsh.

The answer here is clearly Nolan Arenado. But hey, maybe Bryant can overtake him this year. Again, I’ve been banned from baseball, so it’s not like I’ll ever know.
