Buccaneers fan got loot for Tom Brady’s 600th TD ball
Considering he only made his debut this season, it was easy to forget how much we missed ESPN2’s âManningCastâ on âMonday Night Footballâ.
Eli Manning and his brother Peyton were back on Monday for the Saints-Seahawks game after a month-long hiatus, and they had a guest list.
The first was Marshawn Lynch, the former Seahawks running back.
Eli Manning asked Lynch about something he said last December: Lynch’s pre-game ritual was to drink Hennessy.
On Monday, Lynch said she took three pictures of Hennessy before the broadcast. âSo I feel really good,â Lynch noted.
Eli Manning then said he was taking a photo, much to Lynch’s delight.
Lynch later dropped an F bomb on air. It all happened in the first quarter.
In the second quarter, Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady joined the show and spoke about using the ball for his 600th career touchdown pass by a fan.
The fan got an autographed Brady helmet and jersey, a signed Mike Evans jersey and crampons used for the game, a $ 1,000 team store credit and two memberships for the remainder of the season and beyond. .
Later, Manning noted that Brady was stealing his NFL records and working with former Manning coaches “like a single white female stage 1 stalker hanging in here, mate.”
And these are just a few of the highlights. Good product.
A rebirth of the bulls?
DeMar DeRozan scored 26 points for the Da Bulls as they won 111-108 in Toronto and improved to 4-0 this season.
It was the first time the Bulls started a 4-0 season since the 1996-97 championship team with Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman.
On Monday, the Bulls saw a 20-point lead reduced to seven in the fourth quarter, but DeRozan scored 11 points and made his five free throw attempts.
âPart of the reason they wanted me to come here was my experience, being in these moments, figuring out how to handle these moments,â DeRozan told the Chicago Sun-Times. “It’s a learning experience, me just teaching other guys.
Dunk of the night
The Cleveland The Cavaliers won 99-87 in Denver Monday, giving the Nuggets their first loss of the season.
Lauri Markkanen scored 12 points for the Cavs, including two to come this huge dunk on Nikola JokiÄ.
Move over Gretzky
Alex Ovechkin scored twice as the Washington Capitals beat the Senators 7-5 in Ottawa on Tuesday. It was Ovechkin’s 84th career multi-goal road game, which broken a tie with “The Great One”, Wayne Gretzky.
Retiree helps World Series
Mike Swanson retired at the end of the regular season as the Royals Vice President of Communications and Broadcasting, but he has one last job to do.
This one is for Major League Baseball, and it’s something familiar to him.
Swanson is back at the World Series to help MLB coordinate media needs. He tweeted a houston photo, where the Fall Classic between the Braves and the Astros begins Tuesday night.
Two of those World Series assignments were with the Royals in 2014-15.
