This Week in Sports: Brown, World Series, and More


Antonio Brown Lashes Out At NFL

Antonio Brown lashed out against the NFL in a profanity-filled tweet a week before his meeting with investigators. In the tweet, he said he wants the league to clear his name, but will never play for them again. He also said the league treats black players unfairly. Earlier this week, sources said that Brown will meet with the NFL next week concerning accusations of sexually assaulting multiple women.

However, just hours later, Brown took to Twitter to show his frustrations with the league. “Imagine conforming to a system giving it a 100 percent to see them treat me like this is unfairly!” he said on Twitter. “Making money off my sweat and blood F— the @nfl I’ll never play in that s— treat black people the worse! Clear my name and go f— your self.”

Nationals Take World Series

For the first time in franchise history, the Washington Nationals won the World Series. In an eventful game 7, the 40th game 7 in MLB history, the Nats managed to come out on top over the Houston Astros. However, for the first half of the game, it looked like the Astros were going to take the crown.

Then, at the top of the 7th inning, two Nat home runs brought the score up to 3-2. This was then followed by a run in the 8th and two in the 9th. Houston tried to match but didn’t score any other runs in the game. “Resilient, relentless bunch of guys,” Nats manager Dave Martinez said. “They fought all year long.”

Brian Little Hospitalised After Puck Hits Ear

Winnipeg Jets forward Bryan Little stayed in the hospital Wednesday, a day after a puck struck him in the ear. Little was skating behind the net midway through the third period when teammate Nikolaj Ehlers fired a rising slap shot from the point. The puck hit Little on his left side, causing him to fall to the ice, putting his head in his hands as blood dripped.

Ben Simmons Has Sprained AC Joint

76ers guard Ben Simmons sprained his AC joint during Wednesday’s game against the Jazz. He appeared to injure the shoulder in the first quarter when he collided with Jazz forward Royce O’Neale. Next, Simmons passed the ball after the contact and immediately grabbed his shoulder. Overall, he ended up playing 10 minutes. He scored two points with two assists and a rebound.

Kyle Busch To Represent Lexus

NASCAR superstar Kyle Busch will race the Rolex 24 at Daytona in partnerships with Lexus and Toyota. Toyota announced that he will race with the Lexus RC GT3 for AIM Vasser Sullivan. “To have the chance to run in such an iconic race as the Rolex 24 is certainly something I’ve thought about and wanted to do,” Busch said. “My partnership with Toyota and the history we’ve had together has been incredible. I would love to continue that history and maybe get my own Daytona Rolex to add to my trophy collection.”
