Qualifier Emma Raducanu Wins U.S. Open

We were rooting for Fernandez, but I can't be mad about Raducanu's whole US Open story. I hope these two players can establish a nice rivalry over the next 10 or so years.

That is a hell of a run. Has anything like that ever happened in tennis before? Maybe in the early days? How about since 1960?

It's just the company owned stores that closed for a so-called mental health day for the employees. Without pay, of course, which does wonders for a worker's mental health.

That's a great story, beaver, but this offer sheet is kind of the opposite of being cheap. The Hurricanes offer for the young Finn is a terrible overpayment and if successful, not only will it cost the team the $6 million in salary for the young lad, but it will also cost a 1st and 3rd round draft pick to Montreal next year. The $20 signing bonus is a just another finger in the eye of Montreal's offer sheet to the Hurricanes' young Finn, Sebastian Aho, from a few years ago. Petty? Yes, very petty.

Mom, Dad, Let's Talk About Tackle Football

Scary. Thankfully, my kid has zero interest in sports. Being my offspring already puts her behind the eightball when it comes to the brainial area, so I'm OK with her not wanting to play a sport that tends to give participants a concussion

Everyone's favorite baseball player, Miguel Cabrera, is now only one measly home run away from the magical 500. He's also only 50 hits away from the also magical 3000. If he is able to hit both of those numbers, he would be only the seventh player to hit those two numbers in their career.

Luka Doncic Signs $207 Million, 5-Year Extension

And mortgage interest rates?

Good for Luka. He seems like a good enough player on a team that desperately needs his level of talents, so he was able to parlay that into a nice payday.

May Anze Kopitar, fellow Slovenian, still feel that $10 million per year from the LA Kings is good enough.

How Fear Affects the Mental Health and Physical Safety of Elite Gymnasts

When I was in high school, I did the high jump for our track 'n field team. One day at practice, I ran up to the bar and found that I could no longer do it. It was the oddest thing. I kept at it, though, and one day...I just friggin' gave it up as a lost art.

(In no way am I comparing myself to Simone Biles. I'm just saying that I understand how this can happen.)

So, apparently Bruce Sutter received his final Atlanta Braves check today?

The Braves have been paying Bruce Sutter about $1.2 million per year, every year since 1991. 2021 is the final year of those $1.2 million payments. The Braves will pay Sutter about $9.1 million next year, ending their deferred money responsibility per the contract signed in 1984. That is about $46.3 million in deferred money over 32 years for Sutter, who last threw a MLB pitch in 1988.

Also, today is the day when the Hurricanes finally give Alexander Semin his final paycheck. That will free up $2.3 million dollars on the the team's salary cap.
