A football player arrived for a game in a mask after a household incident. Aaron Rodgers was at MetLife but wasn’t even the second-most interesting person not playing? Sports with two tragic losses, Flames exec Chris Snow and former Red Sox pitcher Tim Wakefield. R.I.P. How did a horse wind up paying four figures to show in the Maritimes? And what special gift did the St. Louis Cardinals give Adam Wainwright and his family as the pitcher retired Sunday.
Let’s get it over with: Taylor Swift brought stars to the Chiefs-Jets game.

Upon even another further review, with Elias realizing the absurdity that it could be a HR, the ruling is a triple again.
So, no 30th HR for Kyle Tucker. https://t.co/hFUhzUHHcY

The Blazers seemed to do okay in their trade.
The final haul from Portland for Lillard:
•2024 first (Boston)
•2029 firsts (Boston, Milwaukee)
•2028, 2030 swaps (Milwaukee)
So, that’s a little better than what we heard the Blazers “had to take” elsewhere.
