Joe Judge may call plays for Patriots after moving ‘past’ Giants firing

Maybe Joe Judge really wasn’t kidding when he included himself as a possibility to take over offensive play-calling for the Giants after firing coordinator Jason Garrett during the middle of last season. Seven months later, the surprisingly fired former Giants head coach is in line to coach quarterbacks and possibly call plays for the New England Patriots in his role as a nondescript offensive assistant. Mac Jones is entering his pivotal second year of development as the Patriots quarterback. “In terms of who is coaching each position, you’ll see me on the field with the quarterbacks,” Judge told reporters Thursday in his...

Steve Aoki delivers all-time bad first pitch before Red Sox game

Steve Aoki went for the corner and missed. Aoki was on-hand at Fenway Park to throw out the first pitch before the Red Sox faced the Astros, and wound up literally throwing the ball onto the backstop net on Monday. The 44-year-old EDM DJ conjured memories of 50 Cent’s infamously bad first pitch at Citi Field before a Mets game in 2014 that went well wide of the plate. There is a reasonable question to be asked here as to whether Aoki threw this helium balloon of a first pitch for the attention it would likely garner him. There does exist another possibility. When Aoki threw out the first pitch at a Dodgers game in 2015, he skipped the ball to the plate, so perhaps he remembered that ignominy and overcompensated in Boston.

Ben Simmons sells house, selling condo and trying to put the 76ers and Philadelphia in the past

Ben Simmons is trying to put Philadelphia behind him in more ways than one. The former Philadelphia 76ers guard, who was traded to the Brooklyn Nets for James Harden after a disappointing end to his 2021 playoffs, has sold his house in Moorestown, New Jersey, to Philadelphia Phillies right fielder Nick Castellanos. The house, a 10,500 square-foot mansion with six bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms on a 1.78 acre lot, is approximately 40 minutes from Philadelphia. The house had been on the market for six months before the sale. Simmons is still trying to sell a $3 million condo in the City Center area of Philadelphia.

Scary and Bizarre Injury in Boston, as Astros Pitcher Jake Odorizzi Just Goes Down

I don’t think it’s fair to say that non-contact injuries are automatically worse than contact-based injuries. We’ve seen guys miss plenty of time after being hit by a pitch or colliding in the field or whatever. It’s just that non-contact injuries seem so much scarier because they happen when … nothing was happening. They often just look like the player’s own body popped for no particular reason, and that just seems cruel and unfair and unpredictable.
