The best part of Monday Night Football’s matchup was Tom Brady. With three touchdowns and 406 yards, Brady didn’t let up and led the Pats to a 30-23 victory over the Baltimore Ravens. Everyone, including Ravens’ coach John Harbaugh, knew Brady was the key to the Pats win and, at the end of the 4th quarter the crowd at Gillette Stadium started shouting “Brady”!
After the Atlanta Falcons destroyed the Los Angles Rams last weekend in yet another devastating loss, the Rams took action and fired head coach Jeff Fisher for “a performance-related issue.” With the loss, Fisher tied the NFL record for most career losses (165).
Major League Baseball has banned rookie hazing including, “requiring, coercing or encouraging players from dressing up as women or wearing costumes that may be offensive to individuals based on their race, sex, nationality, age, sexual orientation, gender identify or other characteristic.” Teams have had a tradition of annual dress up days for their rookies as a form of bonding. As an example, the Cubs had their team dress as Disney Princesses, and the Mets had their rookies go to Starbucks dressed as characters from the movie “A League of their Own”.
