Quick Hits From Over The Weekend

The Main Event
WHAT?
Denny Hamlin won the Daytona 500, beating Martin Truex Jr. by just .010 seconds, in the closest finish since NASCAR introduced electronic scoring in 1993.

WHAT ELSE?
There's no doubt this will go down as one of the best Daytona 500s ever. During the start of the final lap, Hamlin was back in fourth place, but his impressive maneuvering and a quick cut to the inside on Matt Kenseth sealed the deal. His come from behind victory gave Joe Gibbs, the three-time Super Bowl-winning coach with the Washington Redskins, his first Daytona 500 victory since Dale Jarrett way back in 1993, and the first ever for Toyota.

THOUGHTS?
On top of that incredible finish, five yellow caution flags were waved during the day, which means crashes galore. Starting on Lap 19, Chase Elliott, who began the race in pole position, crashed, ending his day. Later, with just 30 laps left to go, Dale Earnhardt Jr., the Las Vegas favorite, joined Elliott as a spectator for the rest of the race. Despite ending their race early, the biggest embarrassment of the day goes to Matt Kenseth, who began the final lap in first place, crumbled under pressure, and finished the race in 14th.

FUNNIEST FIGHT OF THE CENTURY
Kimbo Slice vs. Dada 5000 was the most complete and amazing entertainment event of the year. Before the fight, Kimbo asked Dada 5000 to show him his nuts. During the fight, exhaustion sunk in as these two struggled to fight gravity, leading to the most hilarious finishing punch we've ever seen. After the fight, Dada 5000 was rushed to the hospital where he was placed in critical condition due to extreme dehydration and high levels of potassium, the result of losing 40 lbs for the fight. 5000 is expected to make a full recovery.

DUB FOR BUB
Bubba Watson won his second Northern Trust Open, shooting -15 and beating Adam Scott and Jason Kokrak who both shot a measly -14. Watson began the day on top, but Kokrak stormed back and took a two-shot lead. Bubba nailed consecutive birdies on No. 16 and 17, giving him a one-stroke advantage and ultimately the victory, but we have to believe Watson's more pleased with the passing of his kidney stones earlier this week.

SMELL YA LATER
Former Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle continues to do stupid shit and rightfully get arrested for it. This latest incident was actually a trifecta, as he's being charged with three counts of battery, one count of criminal damage to property, and one count of drug possession. Since 2014 when Randle was caught stealing underwear and cologne (His scent of choice? Gucci Guilty Black.), he's been arrested for possession of marijuana, assaulting a police officer outside of a casino, and for an outstanding warrant, which is the only outstanding thing he's done in a while. We'd bet our weekly allowance you'll never see Randle in an NFL uniform again, but more importantly, we'd bet your weekly allowance on it too. So send your weekly allowance to the address at the bottom of this email and let's get this started!

G.O.A.T. of the Weekend (What is G.O.A.T.?)
Jaromir Jagr. In the second period of Saturday's game against the Winnipeg Jets, the hockey old-timer scored his 741st career goal, tying him with Hall-of-Famer Brett Hull at #3 for most NHL goals of all-time. With 6:24 left in the third period, Jagr struck again, scoring career goal 742, and moving him to the third most goals scored all-time. He now only trails retired players Gordie Howe (801) and father-to-hot-daughter, Wayne Gretzky (894).

Goat of the Weekend (What's a Goat?)
Jae'Sean Tate. Basketball continues to get softer and softer. Gone are the golden days of the Bad Boys, where physical, bruising defense dominated the sport. Nowadays, a foul is expected anytime a player drives to the hoop. Watching Tate slap the floor instead of playing defense is sickening. Unfortunately, his lack of defense didn't stop his Buckeyes from beating the Cornhuskers in Saturday's overtime matchup. Welcome to our shit list, Tate.

Quote of the Weekend
"If I had anyone else he wouldn't play a minute." - Jim Boeheim. After his team's 66-52 loss to Pitt, the Syracuse basketball coach decided to let the world know how he feels about Tyler Robinson's inconsistent play over the season.
