Cohen’s Bid For Mets, Loss Of Tom Seaver, Trump Weighs In On Big 10, Bucs Sign Fournette, Season Tkts At Buffalo Wild Wings, Rockets Vs Lakers


Hedge fund manager Steve Cohen appears to be in final talks to purchase the NY Mets. According to reports, his final bid values the team at $2.35 billion (down $250 million from when he first tried to buy the franchise in February). The other high profile bidders, Josh Harris-David Blitzer group and Jennifer Lopez-Alex Rodrigues, have apparently dropped out.

The baseball world lost one of the greats this week. Tom Seaver, a Hall of Famer who led the Mets from last place to a world championship in his first three seasons with the franchise, passed away at the age of 75 from Lewy body dementia and COVID-19 complications. The Mets released the following statement:  “Tom was nicknamed ‘The Franchise’ and ‘Tom Terrific’ because of how valuable he truly was to our organization and our loudspeakers fans, as his #41 was the first player number retired by the organization in 1988. He was simply the greatest Mets player of all-time, and among the best to ever play the game which culminated with his near unanimous induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1992.”


The drama around the Big Ten having a football season continues. The White House has even weighed in with President Trump calling conference commissioner Kevin Warren to discuss the league’s status. After the call, Trump tweeted: Had a very productive conversation with Kevin Warren, Commissioner of the Big Ten Conference, about immediately starting up Big Ten football. Would be good (great!) for everyone – Players, Fans, Country. On the one yard line!”

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed running back Leonard Fournette just days after the Jacksonville Jaguars released him.

In other NFL news, Buffalo Wild Wings is trying to recreate a stadium experience for Cleveland Browns fans and is offering season ticket packages to the restaurant.


With a huge block from James Harden, the Houston Rockets held off the Oklahoma City Thunder to win Game 7. They will now take on the LA Lakers in round 2 of the playoffs.
