Tom Brady trolls doubters after Super Bowl 2021 win

Tom Brady has a message for his haters.

The newly crowned seven-time Super Bowl champion posted a video compilation to Twitter on Wednesday that included headlines, voiceovers and tweets from those who doubted him when he left the Patriots for the Buccaneers.

In the background of the video are highlight clips from the 43-year-old’s first season in Tampa Bay, in which he posted a 65.7 completion percentage, 40 touchdowns – the most he’s thrown since 2015 – and 401 complete passes, which is also his best his 2015.

“I love talk radio…” Brady captioned the post, which concluded with a shot of him holding the Lombardi Trophy up after the Buccaneers’ Super Bowl 2021 win earlier this month.

Brady, who had wobbly legs after the Bucs’ Super Bowl boat parade, has said he’ll be returning to the Buccaneers for the 2021 NFL season.

Harry Kane tells Tottenham he wants to leave amid Man United, Man City, Chelsea rumors

Harry Kane tells Tottenham he wants to leave amid Man United, Man City, Chelsea rumors

Harry Kane has reiterated his stance that he wants to leave Tottenham this summer.

The 27-year-old has grown frustrated over the club’s inability to compete at the highest level, having seen his side fall out of contention to secure Champions League football for next season.

Spurs have long been reluctant to entertain bids for their talisman but the England captain is hoping that they will soften their stance after his long service to the club.

State of play for Kane’s future

Daniel Levy will demand a huge fee for Kane – who prefers a move within the Premier League – as he is on a long-term deal until 2024.

Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea are potentially viable destinations, although it is still unclear as to whether a move will materialise.

All three of the aforementioned Premier League giants have significant financial might and are looking for attacking signings, even with the coronavirus pandemic causing monetary problems. 

In Man Utd’s case, however, they have renewed Edinson Cavani’s contract after a good run of form and are thought to have switched focus to signing a right-winger – potentially Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho.

Kane is keen to resolve his situation ahead of the European Championship but it is likely to rumble on throughout the summer.

What has Kane actually said?

In a host of recent interviews, Kane hasn’t sought to sugar-coat his unhappiness in north London and vocalise his desire to represent a club that challenges for major honours.

“Individual awards are great, they are fantastic achievements,” the striker said . “When I look back at the end of my career, I will go over it and take in a little bit more. The goal right now as a player is to win team trophies.

“As much as this [London Footballer of the Year award] is great, I want to be winning the biggest prizes that there is to offer as a team, and we are not quite doing that.

“It is one of those [situations], it is bittersweet. I would rather be winning team trophies than this award. It is what it is. I am proud to win it. It means it has been a good season on the pitch, so I have just got to try and continue what I am doing.”

What have Tottenham said?

In a brief statement released to various media outlets, Spurs’ commented: “Our focus is on finishing the season as strongly as possible. That’s what everyone should be focused on.”

Kane’s stats this season

With 22 Premier League goals, Kane is level with Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah in the race for the golden boot. 

Furthermore, he has 32 goals and 16 assists in 47 games in all competitions, ranking him among the world’s best strikers.

Jordan Binnington restrained from nearly starting goalie fight at end of Blues vs. Avalanche

Jordan Binnington restrained from nearly starting goalie fight at end of Blues vs. Avalanche

The Blues and Avalanche already have some bad blood brewing in the first round of their 2021 Stanley Cup Playoffs matchup.

In the aftermath of the Avalanche’s 4-1 series-opening win, several scrums broke out between the two sides, including one in front of the net between Blues forward Kyle Clifford and Avalanche defenseman Patrik Nemeth. 

But when Colorado goalie Philipp Grubauer got in on that battle, that prompted a response from St. Louis’ netminder Jordan Binnington.

Binnington made his way down the ice and had to be restrained from going after Grubauer, as you can see below via SportsNet.

The referees got to Binnington well before he could engage with Grubauer and escorted him off the ice. That prevented the goalie fight, a rare spectacle, from happening.

Nonetheless, Binnington’s willingness to get involved in the late-game physicality must have been appreciated by his teammates. After all, Binnington had a terrific Game 1 for St. Louis, making a whopping 46 saves on 49 attempts, and did everything he could to give his team a chance to win.

Perhaps Binnington’s effort in all facets of the game will provide his teammates with a much-needed spark as they look to even the series with the Avalanche in Game 2.

Braves’ Huascar Ynoa picks fight with bench, loses, breaks hand

Braves' Huascar Ynoa picks fight with bench, loses, breaks hand

Huascar Ynoa has broken a bat or two in his career, and now the wood is fighting back. 

Dugout frustration is part of baseball. Hundreds of Gatorade coolers have been demolished, gloves have been thrown across zip codes. It happens.

But when you’re a pitcher, you may want to think twice about what you do with your pitching hand, and Braves starter Ynoa found that out the hard way over the weekend.

Ynoa landed on the 10-day injured list Monday after punching a dugout bench following his exit from Sunday’s forgettable start vs. the Brewers and breaking a bone in his pitching hand.

What’s especially brutal is that Ynoa is off to the best start of his career: Through nine games (eight starts) he’s pitched to a 3.02 ERA (3.72 FIP) with a 144 ERA+ in 44 2/3 innings.

Ynoa’s frustration is understandable, as he was pulled from his worst start of the season to Milwaukee on Sunday: He allowed five runs on nine hits through 4 1/3 innings in the loss.

Maybe somewhat luckily for Ynoa, it’s not the most unfortunate injury for a pitcher this season. That dishonor belongs to A’s pitcher Jesus Luzardo, who broke his finger in an unfortunate video gaming moment.

Let this be a lesson, kiddos: Don’t pick fights with inanimate objects. They will win most of the time.
