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 Thursday, January 13, 2022, and here’s what Jared is cookin’ up:

  • Top-seed Novak Djokovic is set to begin his title defense against ​​Miomir Kecmanovic in the first round of play at the Australian Open next week, but that will ultimately depend on whether or not the Immigration Minister allows him to remain in Australia

  • Prior to the tournament draw, Djokovic released a statement with new admissions, including the fact that he sat for an interview and maskless photoshoot knowing he had Covid without disclosing his status

  • New York Giants owner John Mara told reporters that this past season was the most embarrassing time in his tenure with the organization… and Jared has some thoughts on why this bad season was different from all other bad seasons

  • PLUS: Watch the show to see a hilarious parody of the Novak Djokovic saga, starring tennis greats Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal

THE RUSH will be back tomorrow. Until then, stay safe and don’t forget to check out our previous episodes here.
