Monday Afterschool Special: Make it Stop!

Deflategate? Still? Really?

Just when you thought it was safe to forget all about Deflategate, Deflategate is back! Earlier today, a federal appeals court ruled to uphold the NFL’s four-game suspension on Tom Brady. The decision comes six months (!!) after a U.S. district court judge said in September that Brady didn’t have to serve the suspension. And that came four months after the NFL issued a report into the Deflategate “scandal.” So, for everyone keeping track at home, we’ve been talking about under inflated footballs since January 18, 2015. We’ve been dealing with this for more than a year — and we might be in store for more, depending on whether or not the Patriots want to appeal today’s ruling to the Supreme Court, which is the last place this case can go now. I think this Brady gif speaks for all of us:

Hero-Making Double-OT Elimination Goal

Number-seven seed New York Islanders entered the 2016 NHL postseason having not won a playoff series since 1993. But all that changed Sunday thanks to captain John Tavares, whose third-period tying goal and double-overtime series clincher turned him into an instant Islanders legend.
