1. This is a pretty easy one to start off with. Ronaldo scored three goals yesterday. Not one, not two, but yes, three beeping goals. From 2006 to 2014 he only had three in all world cup appearances. The best is Spain fined him 21 million dollars. Well from my point of view, each one of those goals should pay back 7 million and the rest he scores in the world cup, the country should pay him 5 million a piece because he is the driving force in their economy. I’m kidding I don’t really know, but Ronaldo put on a show yesterday for everyone. I was at the gym.. no I don’t gym. Instead I tan and laundry like everyone else from New Jersey, but he caught the attention of every single person in that place.
2. In some baseball news, the Red Sox somehow lost after putting up 6 runs against James Paxton, who looks to be one of the next great pitchers in this league. Fun fact, the Seattle Mariners have three of the four pitchers in recent years to throw a no-no against American League opponents. Random fact, but I think it’s pretty cool and hey, now you learned something today. You’ll feel better about yourself and it’s a nice conversation starter. The Yankees won, which I think keeps them tied with the Boston Red Sox in what will be pivotal AL east race this entire year because both teams are stacked. The emergence of Gleyber Torres is going to make him the AL rookie of the year. Somehow the Blue Jays beat the Nationals, but I couldn’t even name a player on the Blue Jays since the late great Roy “Doc” Halladay. The Cubs and Brewers both scored 13 runs in their wins yesterday, so is that a good thing or a bad thing? Yeah a win is great, but if you score 13 runs are you unlucky for the next 13 games? Ross Strippling is the only Los Angeles Dodgers starter to compete in six innings or more since May 28th. I saw this on twitter so i guess that means he’s doing well. Keep up the good work Ross.
3. Now let’s go to this Kobe and Shaq debate, who feel they could have beat any team in NBA history. I talked a little about this on my podcast. I don’t think that is true at all. The Warriors today would run all over them. Yes Shaq would score 50 points a game down low, but we know when the Warriors go to the Hampton five lineup of Steph, Klay, Durant, Draymond and Iggy, there is no way Shaq could stay on the floor unless the Lakers went into a zone. Then the Warriors would murder it by driving and kicking out for a three. I can’t see that Lakers team in a series beating them. I’d say the Warriors win in five games and honestly that Miami Heat team of the “Big Three” of James, Wade and Bosh would give that Lakers team a big run for their money.
