The Last of Bosh?

Fun Fact of the Day:  Last night, the Chicago Cubs collected their 100th win of the season against the Pittsburgh Pirates. It is their first 100-win season since 1935.


Today’s Rundown

NFL 

Atlanta Falcons beat the New Orleans Saints (45-32).  The Saints are off to a dismal 0-3 to start the season. New Orleans locals were hoping for a big win on the 10-year anniversary of the iconic Louisiana Superdome game, where the Saints made their triumphant return to the stadium following Hurricane Katrina.  Unfortunately, the Saints’ depleted defense struggled against the Falcons' running backs, and Saints QB Drew Brees threw his first interception in nearly 7 games. Before the game, both teams stood in a circle holding hands as a sign of unity following the recent police shootings in Tulsa, OK and Charlotte, NC.

 

MLB

In remembrance. The entire Miami Marlins team wore jerseys with ace Jose Fernandez’ No. 16, during last night’s emotional 7-3 win against the New York Mets. Afterwards, Fernandez’s number was retired. Fernandez and 2 companions died over the weekend after their boat hit a jetty at full speed. At only 24-years-old, his life and promising career were cut all too short. Fernandez was a 2x All-Star and 2013 NL Rookie of the Year. He leaves behind his girlfriend, who is pregnant with their daughter. 


Seen and Heard

NBA

Training day.  After a restful summer vacation, NBA training camps got kicked off yesterday with a big, old fashioned media blitz. Reporters were finally able to get answers to the questions they’ve been dying to ask all summer long. Here are the 2 biggest stories you should know coming out of Media Day:

 

NFL

And the perfect attendance award goes to… Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has never missed a start in his 5-year NFL career, but that impressive streak might come to an end this week. Wilson tore his MCL during last Sunday’s win against the San Francisco 49ers. Even though coach Pete Carroll said that Russell’s “feeling great” and “unbelievably OK,” they aren’t sure if he’ll be able play in this week’s game against the N.Y. Jets.

Rock bottom.  Former NFL defensive end Greg Hardy was arrested on cocaine possession charges yesterday. You may remember him from his time playing for the Carolina Panthers or Dallas Cowboys, but more likely you remember him for being accused of abusing his ex-girlfriend and throwing her on a futon covered in assault rifles.
