WATCH THE VIDEO ABOVE to see today’s piping-hot, fresh-outta-the-oven episode of THE RUSH with Jared Quay! We’ll let you know everything you didn’t know you needed to know about sports. Other stuff too. But mostly sports.
It’s Friday, August 28, 2020 and here’s what Jared’s cooking up:
After boycotts and emotionally charged meetings, the NBA decided to resume play, but with Michael Jordan mediating between the players and owners, the league is exploring how to actively effect social change.
Both the NBA and WNBA postponed their games Thursday, along with the NHL, and seven MLB games were also postponed.
The New York Mets took the field, held a 42-second moment of silence in honor of Jackie Robinson, and then left the field, not returning to play.
Off the field, Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen was caught on camera criticizing commissioner Robert Manfred and his alleged response to players wanting to postpone games.
Nine NFL teams cancelled practice or team activities while the New Orleans Saints did practice, but wore helmets displaying Jacob Blake’s name.
