Rio’s Water High Feces Content, Beijing To Host 2022 Olympics, Carlos Gomez Traded To Astros


OlympicsA recent report shows that the water in Rio is highly contaminated and that athletes competing in swimming and boating events could risk getting violently ill from the human feces in the water.  Brazilian officials assured the committee that the water will be safe. Let’s hope this gets resolved for the athletes sake.

And in other Olympic news, Beijing was selected to host the 2022 Winter Olympics. Beijing hosted the summer Olypmpics in 2008 and with this announcement,  will became the first city to host both the winter and summer events.


The postseason push for playoff berths is still underway with a big move from the Houston Astros by acquiring outfielder Carlos Gomez and pitcher Mike Fiers from the the Milwaukee Bucks. The Mets looked like they were going to grab Gomez but the deal fell through at the last minute.
