Quick Hits
  • A Fingerfall. Despite Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Trevor Bauer leaving the game after throwing only 21 pitches due to his finger gushing blood (10 stitches stemming from Drone accident), they were able to defeat the Toronto Blue Jays 4-2. They'll be looking to lock up their bid to the World Series in Game 4 today.
  • QB Troubles. The New York Jets looked more like a prop plane last night, mustering 3 points against the Arizona Cardinals and letting RB David Johnson rush for 111 yards along with three touchdowns. Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was benched, and replacement Geno Smith promptly threw an interception in relief. Somebody get Joe "The Drunk Kiss Machine" Namath out of retirement.
  • Heavy Lifting. Powerlifter Roy Williams became the first human to squat over 1,000 pounds, and it looked easier for him than when we squat down to sit on the toilet.

The Main Event
Australian tennis douchebag Nick Kyrgios has been banned eight weeks and fined $25,000 for tanking a game during the Shanghai Rolex Masters, that is if you call this tanking. Or even this. And this- well, that's just a nice play on his part.

And just like that, the eight-week ban has been magically reduced. Kyrgios took the ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) up on their offer to reduce the ban by five weeks if he agreed to see a sports psychologist.

This isn't the first time the friend of Mr. Steal Your Girl has made news for being a dickhead. Since we're short on time we'll be brief, but there was the time the hypocrite answered his phone on the court, then yelled at a fan for being on theirs, and he decided to smash not one (see photo above), not two, but three rackets.

You can tell by Kyrgios' beautifully crafted apology that he's become a master of disaster, and getting people to not hate him.

Keepin' It Light
The Arizona Cardinals definitively have the most pre-game fun of any NFL team. Losers of pre-game drills have to run on the field and embarrass themselves, and star DB Patrick Peterson had to pay the piper last night, dressing up in an inflatable T. Rex costume. Past favorites include: the little hula girl, Raggedy Ann, towel man, undies and jacket man, and the cutoff shirt boy wonder.

Bad Sport
Dan Snyder Loves Company
An Ontario judge stopped an attempt to prevent the Cleveland Indians from using their team name and Chief Wahoo during Game 3 of the ALCS, which took place in Toronto. Somewhere, Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder is pleasuring himself to Chief Wahoo while watching Major League, because for once, someone else is being called a racist.
