    Within the dog-pound fraternity of the Minnesota Timberwolves 2021-22 roster, the disposition of D’Angelo Russell is a noticeably feline outlier.  The other stars that comprise the Wolves’ Big 3, Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards, are naturally gregarious, effusive to the cusp of sloppiness, expressing their sentiments. Most of the rest of the crew — culture-creator Patrick Beverley, dervishes Jarred Vanderbilt and Josh Okogie, sharpshooter Malik Beasley, rookie Leandro Bolmaro — find their natural rhythm in a barking, cavorting environment.  DLo is different. By nature he is dismissive of the canned back-and-forth of media public relations. He is prim and exacting in his habits, lithe and silky in his movements, and professorial in mien, as if auditioning for the Lawrence Fishburne role in “Higher Learning.” In the tumult of NBA hoops, he is constantly surveying the court with a serene dispatch, gliding from station to station, his expert dribble attaching the ball to his hand like a yo-yo. Ideally it wouldn’t make a sound.  Thus far this season, DLo has been an unlikely difference-maker during one of the most enjoyable stints...
    After a mini-bye weekend, the Chicago Bears returned to Halas Hall on Monday to review film from their 16-14 win over the Detroit Lions and hold a short practice. As he recovers from broken ribs, rookie quarterback Justin Fields worked to the side with other injured players during the portion of practice open to the media, and coach Matt Nagy said Bears medical staff still is working through whether Fields will be cleared this week. Without Fields playing against the Lions, the Bears couldn’t assess the growth of their most important player. But there were still moments that mattered for the Bears future in the unconvincing win against the 0-10-1 Lions. As the Bears move on from last week’s tumult around Nagy’s job status and focus on Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals at Soldier Field, here are five significant things to take from Thursday’s win. 1. Darnell Mooney topped 120 receiving yards for the second straight game and third time this season. Mooney said after the game he wasn’t happy with his performance against the...
    Dallas Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy is out this upcoming Thursday. The team announced Monday morning that McCarthy is out against the Saints this week because of COVID-19 protocols.

    The Giants, who have won 23 of the 74 games they’ve played since the last time they had a winning record, have now decided that the only way to get things going in the right direction again is to fire their offensive coordinator. It reminds you of the old days at Yankee Stadium when George Steinbrenner would fire a pitching coach. But this isn’t about Jason Garrett. From now until the end of the regular season, this is about the head coach, who loses his cover now. He is the one who owns everything that happens on offense for the Giants the rest of the way, good or bad. Judge needs to put some points on the board as much as Daniel Jones does. Maybe the Giants can put it on the Eagles Sunday, one of the teams ahead of them in the NFC East, the way the Bucs put it on the Giants Monday night, before Garrett officially went under the team bus the next day. Or, better yet: The Giants need to put it on the...
    The Chicago Bears will try to move past a strange couple of days and focus on topping the Detroit Lions on Thursday at Ford Field. We’ve got updates all day for the Week 12 game. Injury updates Bears inside linebacker Roquan Smith left the game on the Lions’ first drive of the second quarter, briefly went in the injury tent and then remained on the sideline with his helmet off. The Bears announced he was out with a hamstring injury. Outside linebacker Sam Kamara has been ruled out with a concussion. Lions running back D’Andre Swift also went down in the second quarter with a shoulder injury and is out for the rest of the game.

    KANSAS CITY, MO – SEPTEMBER 26: Head coach Andy Reid of the Kansas City Chiefs argues with a side judge during the fourth quarter against the Los Angeles Chargers at Arrowhead Stadium on September 26, 2021 in Kansas City, Missouri. (Photo by David Eulitt/Getty Images) Week 11 featured game-changing decisions from officials that, right or wrong, impacted the end result for several playoff teams. You thought we were done with taunting? Not in the slightest. As it turns out, the officiating crew doesn’t know where to begin with such an ambiguous rule that’s constantly up to interpretation. The truth of the matter is we don’t know who taunting is supposed to protect. It sure as hell doesn’t help the players. If anything, it limits their freedom of expression. Viewers, meanwhile, constantly complain that taunting takes the fun out of the game, slows down the action and hurts their team when it matters most.

    The Los Angeles Lakers face a difficult hurdle early in the 2021-22 NBA season as LeBron James remains sidelined with an abdominal strain.  LeBron James has already had an up-and-down start to the 2021-22 season, as has his Lakers team. After an embarrassing loss to the 1-6 Oklahoma City Thunder the last time they played on Oct. 27, the 5-3 Lakers will host the Thunder tonight at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles. News emerging out of the Lakers locker room indicates that the Los Angeles team will be without the help of LeBron James for longer than expected. While James has already been ruled out of playing in Thursday’s home game, the abdominal strain James is currently dealing with will apparently keep him off the court for at least another week. According to ESPN NBA reporter Dave McMenamin, “a source familiar with the injury told ESPN that the team’s medical staff ‘wants to take their time’ with James’ recovery.”LeBron James set to miss more time with abdominal strainJames, who turns 37 on Dec. 30, has already missed two of the...
    The favorite TV shows of 80s kids Selling Your Home? Avoid These Mistakes CeeDee Lamb says that Minnesota Vikings safety Harrison Smith choked him on Sunday. Video appears to show that he's right.  The Dallas Cowboys receiver hasn't complained to media about Smith. But sideline video from Sunday's Cowboys victory shows Lamb telling teammates on the bench: "Man was choking the **** out of me while I’m on the sideline.” Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad Game footage seen here shows Smith tackle Lamb out of bounds and maintain what looks like a chokehold on the Cowboys receiver after the play was done. Lamb appears to struggle to escape Smith's grasp and attempt to tap in a scene more familiar to a UFC Octagon than an NFL field.  The incident flew under the radar during Sunday's game that the Cowboys won, 20-16. Smith wasn't penalized, and the incident wasn't a topic of postgame discussion. And to be clear, Lamb isn't calling Smith out in media. He's not spoken about the incident publicly. But if Harrison...
    A new blood test that could change the way cancer is detected and diagnosed is soon to become available in the U.S. The Galleri blood test was developed by GRAIL, a San Francisco, California-based biotechnology company. The test is expected to be able to detect 50 different types of cancer via a blood test such as pancreatic, ovarian and esophageal. Its rollout would be 'game changer', one expert says, and it could potentially save millions of lives through early cancer diagnoses.

Batting practice was wiped out by rain for Game 3 on Friday, and it was a dreary night as the Atlanta Braves beat Houston 2-0.

    OKLAHOMA CITY (CBSLA) — Coming off their overtime win against the San Antonio Spurs and hoping to keep the win streak going, Los Angeles Lakers hoped to rout the winless Oklahoma City Thunder.  However, with star Lebron James sidelined with an ankle injury and the offense struggling in the second half the Lakers dropped their third game of the season, losing to the Thunder 123-115 READ MORE: AA Flight From New York's JFK To John Wayne Airport Diverts To Denver After Flight Attendant Attacked By PassengerWith James out, the offense fell to the hands of power forward Anthony Davis and guard Russell Westbrook.

    Atlanta Braves pitcher Charlie Morton is out for the rest of the World Series after taking a come-backer off the leg from former Astros teammate Yuli Gurriel in Atlanta’s 6-2 win over Houston in game one. Facing his old team with which he won the 2017 World Series, Morton’s start was cut short after 2⅓ scoreless innings. In the bottom of the second as his team led 3-0, he took a hard grounder off his lower right leg from Gurriel. Color commentator John Smoltz had just compared Gurriel’s hitting style to former MLB journeyman Julio Franco. “Similar style hitting,” said Smoltz of the righty. “Can go to right, Julio loved going to right.” Gurriel then smacked a 96 mile per hour fastball back at Morton on one hop, hitting his lower right leg. The ball redirected conveniently toward first baseman Freddie Freeman, who fielded the grounder and stepped on the bag for the out. “Or off the pitcher’s leg for the out” said Joe Buck. “And the Braves hope Morton’s ok. Looks to be.” Morton proceeded to strike out Chas...

While the Astros enter the World Series with a depleted pitching staff due to injuries, they will turn the ball over to their most reliable starter on the hill in Framber Valdez. He is coming off the longest outing of the 2021 postseason when he allowed just one run to the Red Sox over eight innings with three hits, one walk and five strikeouts. The Braves will send out Charlie Morton, who has dominated in the postseason over the past several years, to start Game 1.

    ATLANTA (AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers tapped Walker Buehler to start Game 6 of the NL Championship Series against the Atlanta Braves on Saturday night after scratching Max Scherzer. The right-handed Buehler was coming back on just three days’ rest, with the 106-win Dodgers in a must-win situation. The Braves led the best-of-seven series 3-2. With a full week of rest, Buehler was roughed up by the Braves in his Game 3 start on Tuesday, giving up four runs (two earned) and six hits in just 3 2/3 innings. The Dodgers rallied for a 6-5 victory. Buehler also pitched on short rest in Game 4 of the NL Division Series, going 4 1/3 innings against the San Francisco Giants. He gave up one run and three hits. In three starts during this postseason, Buehler was 0-1 with a 3.77 ERA in 14 1/3 innings. In the regular season, he was one of the NL’s top pitchers with 16-4 record and a 2.47 ERA.

    "And I've had to really dig deep and analyze my values and my morals, and ultimately I need to put them first," she continued. "And the irony in all this is that a lot of these same values and morals that I hold dear are what made me a really good employee, what helped with the success that I'm able to have in my career." Williams pointed out that the Walt Disney Company sent an email to employees in April that recommended workers get the COVID vaccine, "but ultimately, it was a personal decision." However, the Walt Disney Company announced in late July that it would require all salaried and non-union employees to get the COVID-19 vaccine within 60 days. Williams called out her employer, "Their values have clearly changed." "Ultimately, I cannot put a paycheck over principle," she declared. "And I will not sacrifice something that I believe and hold so strongly to maintain a career." "A lot of people have brought up the moral obligation receiving the vaccine is to being a good citizen.

    The SNL Weekend Update anchors throughout the years, ranked 50 Ways To Live the Big Life on a Small Budget Right off the bat, I've got two issues that surfaced on opening night of the NHL season. First, and far less serious, how can the Tampa Bay Lightning just absolutely not show up in their season opener in front of their home fans against a depleted Penguins team. Shoutout to the Penguins who played a great game, but Tampa just never showed up. Thankfully we didn't lay the -250 juice on the moneyline.  Second, and this is a far more serious issue as a hockey bettor, is the handling of the Kraken situation. For those unaware, Seattle played their first NHL game last night and they were expected to be without four players due to COVID protocols. Then, out of nowhere, about an hour before game time, news came out that that three of the players on the COVID list were cleared to play.  Jared McCann and Joonas Donskoi play top-six minutes for the Kraken.

    LOS ANGELES — Walker Buehler was pretty good on three days’ rest. On Thursday we’ll see how the Giants’ offense works on four games of sleep. Only the most distinguished oracle would dare to predict what will happen in Game 5, with the Dodgers and Giants locked in Oracle Park until the winner of this National League Division Series comes out. But San Francisco did not win 107 regular-season games by swinging the bats as inefficiently as this. Now Julio Urias, the Dodgers’ four-leaf clover, is rested and ready for Thursday. “I don’t think we could have any more confidence in anybody than we do in Julio,” Buehler said. Five of the first 10 Dodgers got hits in Game 3, and nine of the first 17 either reached base or launched a run-scoring fly ball. The Dodgers also left five men in scoring position in the first three innings and only led by a nervous 2-0. But Mookie Betts drilled a two-run homer to right field in the fourth inning, and the Giants couldn’t have made...
    Major League Baseball managers aren’t that important. Until October, that is. Then they are vital. The difference, on any given night, between exactly and heartbreak. Giants fans know all about this important distinction. Three World Series flags fly in the outfield as a testament to Bruce Bochy’s lineup and bullpen management. The Giants’ showdown with the Dodgers in the NLDS is Gabe Kapler’s first playoff series as a manager. Going into it, no one knew what to expect. Let the Giants’ pivotal 1-0 win in Game 3 in Los Angeles stand as a testament to Kapler’s aptitude. In a game where the margin couldn’t have been tighter or the stakes higher, the Giants’ second-year manager pulled all the right strings. Yes, folks, he’s got this. From his pregame decision to keep Evan Longoria in the lineup, betting that the veteran third baseman would overcome the terrible slump he’s been mired in for weeks, to his bold but justifiable bullpen decisions, Kapler was an active part of the Giants’ victory. And while...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she “will never be out of the game of politics” Monday during an interview with ABC News. Clinton, who was also the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, noted she has no plans to run for “anything” but said her plans to remain involved stem from the country’s democracy being “at stake.” Clinton cited the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol and disinformation on Facebook as some of the reasons for her ongoing involvement. “I will never be out of the game of politics. I’m not going to be running for anything,” Clinton explained. “I really feel like our democracy is at stake and there’s many reasons for that, some of them we saw on the screen with the insurrection, some of them because the revelations about Facebook that creates a world of disinformation instead of, you know, one that we can agree on what the facts are.” WATCH: Clinton added that she really is “worried about what’s happening at home and around the world” before reiterating her plans to remain “involved.” The...
    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Monday on “ABC’s “Good Morning America” that she will “never be out of the game of politics.” Clinton’s national political career included being first lady, junior senator for New York, Obama administration secretary of state, and two failed presidential runs in 2008 and 2016. Referencing a new novel, ‘State of Terror’ by Clinton and author Louise Penny, co-host Amy Robach asked, “I believe you said it’s up to us to make the plot stays fictional. After writing this, any interest in getting back in the game of politics?” Clinton said, “I will never be out of the game of politics. I’m not going to be running for anything.

    Hillary Clinton has confirmed that while she will not be running for anything in the future, she will “never be out of the game of politics.” Clinton and Canadian writer Louise Penny sat down with Amy Robach on Monday’s edition of Good Morning America, in which the two discussed their upcoming political-mystery novel State of Terror.  “State of Terror follows a novice Secretary of State who has joined the administration of her rival, a president inaugurated after four years of American leadership that shrank from the world stage,” reads the synopsis on Amazon. “A series of terrorist attacks throws the global order into disarray, and the secretary is tasked with assembling a team to unravel the deadly conspiracy, a scheme carefully designed to take advantage of an American government dangerously out of touch and out of power in the places where it counts the most.” Towards the end of the interview, Robach asked Clinton if the book, which largely parallels American politics, has inspired her to jump back into the game. “I will never be out of the game of politics. I’m not going to be running...
    Hillary Clinton said Monday she "will never be out of the game of politics," saying that while she doesn’t have plans to run for "anything," she will be "involved." During an interview with ABC News’ "Good Morning America" Monday, the former 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, former secretary of state, former Democratic senator from New York and former first lady, said she will remain in the political world, even without mounting a bid for public office. HILLARY CLINTON ANNOUNCES NEW BOOK, CALLS IT HER ‘FIRST FORAY INTO FICTION’ "I will never be out of the game of politics," Clinton said, adding "I’m not going to be running for anything," but said she feels "our democracy is at stake." Clinton cited insurrection at the Capitol on Jan. 6; "disinformation" on Facebook, and more. "I really feel our democracy is at stake, and there’s many reasons for that," she said. "Some of them we saw on the screen with the insurrection, some of them because of the revelations about Facebook that creates a world of disinformation instead of, you know, one that we...
    The Tampa Bay Rays were jobbed out of runs in the 13th inning after Kevin Kiermaier’s hit was called a ground-rule double. The last thing that the MLB postseason was confusion, but lo and behold, Game 3 of the ALDS between the Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays delivered just that. And it came at the worst possible time for the reigning AL East champions. In the top of the 12th-inning, Kevin Kiermaier hit a a shot to right-center field. The baseball bounced off the wall, onto the ground and off of outfielder Hunter Renfroe to reach the Red Sox bullpen. It looked as though Yandy Diaz had scored, but the umpires determined that it was a ground rule double.

    Kyrie Irving won’t play Friday in the preseason game against the Milwaukee Bucks. According to Shams Charania, the Brooklyn Nets star is listed as out, and it’s the first game Irving has missed because he’s unvaccinated and isn’t allowed in a large indoor setting because of the vaccine mandate.

Jonathan Isaac had some great words about why he’s remaining unvaccinated, but the decision won’t have a huge impact on him because he plays in Orlando.

    MSNBC host Rachel Maddow has revealed she had to undergo surgery for skin cancer after her partner of 22 years spotted a suspicious mole on her neck that turned out to be cancerous.  The 48-year-old primetime TV host and liberal commentator spoke out about her health scare during her show on Wednesday night, while praising partner Susan Mikula for finding the mole 'in enough time that it was totally treatable'.  According to Maddow - who took three days off from her weeknight show in the wake of the surgery on Friday - artist Susan, 63, made the discovery while the couple were attending a Minor League baseball game this summer, with the on-air host admitting that she initially tried to pass off the mark as a mosquito bite.  'At this particular Minor League game that I went to with Susan where I am sitting on her right and she is sitting on my left, I caught her looking at me... just kind of giving me a squinty eye and I was like, "What? What's wrong?" I'm thinking mustard from the...
    LOS ANGELES — Those who watched the Dodgers, day after endless day, thought Chris Taylor was their most valuable player throughout most of the 2021 regular season. He can be useful in the irregular season, too. The queen on the Dodgers’ chessboard drilled Alex Reyes’ fastball deep to left field, perhaps the only moment in this Wild Card game that wasn’t ambiguous. It was a 2-run shot that rescued the Dodgers, 3-1, in the bottom of the ninth inning, and sent them to San Francisco for a Division Series that, for most of this night, was far from assured. Taylor was always there with a safety net, when Corey Seager was hurt, when Cody Bellinger was stumped, when Mookie Betts’ hip was keeping him sidelined. His eventual reward was a seat on the bench at the beginning of this game, thanks to matchups and other little footnotes on the company printout. But manager Dave Roberts has been around every day, too. He predicted Taylor would have an impact at some point, and he wasn’t a bit surprised...
    Chilling Details About Brittany Murphys Final Days Revealed in New Doc: She Was in So Much Pain 50 Terrible Ways To Try and Save Money BOSTON – After the New York Yankees lost 6-2 at Fenway Park on Tuesday night to ring in the 2021 postseason in front of a jubilant, raucous sellout crowd and, just as quickly, shut the door on yet another frustratingly brief October appearance for their own storied franchise, Gerrit Cole sat on Zoom at a loss for answers that likely don’t exist. The Yankees ace and $324 million man lasted just two innings plus three batters. Which is unique in that it was his shortest outing of the season and tied for the shortest outing of his career, a disaster in a season where he was named an All-Star and could win the AL Cy Young. But it was also the culmination of a pattern for a pitcher who had a 5.13 ERA in September and gave up 15 runs in 17 2/3 innings over his previous three starts. Maybe a tight left hamstring,...

Teammate Didi Richards and the Atlanta Dream's Aari McDonald each earned one vote.  The three were all named to the 2021 All-Rookie team announced by the WNBA. They are joined by No. 1 draft pick Charli Collier of the Dallas Wings and Dana Evans of the Chicago Sky. The Sky are the only of those teams still in the playoffs and could become the first team not seeded Nos. 1-3 to reach the WNBA Finals.  It was a less-productive rookie class than in most years and Onyenwere shot out to the front of the race early.

    New Zealand has finally acknowledged what most other countries realised long ago, that it cannot completely eradicate Covid.  Jacinda Ardern is abandoning her draconian 'Zero Covid' strategy after admitting she cannot stop the spread of the Delta variant with harsh lockdown measures and aggressive contact tracing.  The Pacific nation, which has been slow to move on vaccines with only 40 per cent of the population fully jabbed, managed to eliminate the virus last year and stayed largely free until an outbreak of the Delta variant in August after a traveller returned from Australia. The restrictions have been in place despite only a total of 27 deaths recorded throughout the pandemic.  The prime minister enforced what was meant to be a 'short and sharp' nationwide lockdown in response to the Auckland outbreak of the 'game changer' variant, which now stands at 1,357 cases.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wideout Antonio Brown took a shot at the Steelers after beating the Patriots, even if it wasn’t fully intentional. Sometimes, we just say the wrong thing. It’s a classic case of going on autopilot, which Brown seems to do often at press conferences after a long, grinding football game. AB’s falling out in Pittsburgh has been well-publicized. He forced his way out, blaming Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers organization in the process. Then, he did the same thing in Oakland, only to sign with the Patriots and play *checks the stats* one game in New England. Yet, Brown loved his time with the Patriots so much he opted to shout them out postgame. Antonio Brown, who played one game with the Patriots, just said playing here for New England was the greatest experience of his life. — Greg Auman (@gregauman) October 4, 2021 Steelers: Did Antonio Brown mean to take a shot at Pittsburgh? Probably not, honestly. As much as Brown loves throwing shade, his days in Pittsburgh are long gone, and he’s since formed a bond...
    GARY NEVILLE gave out TWO Man of the Match awards during the Premier League game between Liverpool and Manchester City. The Sky Sports commentator couldn't decide between Reds ace Mohamed Salah and City star Phil Foden... so they shared the accolade. 2Liverpool ace Mo Salah had an outstanding game against Man CityCredit: AFP 2But Gary Neville believes Phil Foden was equally as goodCredit: AFP Both players were worthy recipients of the award after scoring stunning goals in the 2-2 thriller at Anfield on Sunday afternoon. Foden cancelled out Sadio Mane's opener with a sweet left-footed strike before Salah restored Liverpool's lead with a mesmerising run and finish. But the hosts couldn't hold on as Kevin De Bruyne scored nine minutes from time and the points were shared. Discussing Salah during the game, Neville said: "Mo Salah is on a different level." And while chatting about Foden, the Manchester United icon admitted: "What a player he is. Foden is an absolute joy to watch." But fans were not happy with Neville's decision on social media, believing the award shouldn't be shared....
    (CNN)A pill that could potentially treat Covid-19 is a "game-changer," but experts are emphasizing that it's not an alternative to vaccinations -- which remain the most effective path to ending the coronavirus pandemic if enough people get their shots.Yet, the average number of people getting vaccinated -- at 270,531 -- is the lowest it's been since August 15, according to Friday's data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A little over 65% of the eligible population is fully vaccinated, the data shows.At the same time, the US hit a grim milestone Friday by surpassing 700,000 deaths from Covid-19, according to Johns Hopkins University's data. The US tops the world for Covid-19 deaths, followed by Brazil with nearly 600,000 fatalities, according to the data. US surpasses 700,000 Covid-19 deathsThe news from Merck and Ridgeback Biotherapeutics on Friday that they created an antiviral pill that can reduce Covid-19 hospitalization and death by 50% was hailed by health experts, although they cautioned it wasn't a replacement for vaccinations."This can be used in conjunction with the vaccine.

                        U.S. Representative Greg Steube (R-FL-17) on Wednesday hit a rare, out-of-the-park home run during the annual Congressional Baseball Game. The contest, which was played at the home of Major League Baseball’s (MLB) Washington Nationals, allowed lawmakers from both sides of the political aisle to compete in the game. In the bottom of the third inning, Steube, who wore a red, “Save America” hat autographed by former President Donald Trump, launched a pitch from Representative Pete Aguilar (D-CA-31) straight to left field. The blast by Steube cleared the wall of the MLB-size ballpark and allowed the congressman to stroll around the bases. “Well, all the glory goes to God. That’s why I was pointing my finger up. I just like the fact that I did it while the entire stadium and everybody in my own dugout was paying attention to President Biden because he was in the Republican dugout at the time,” Steube told “Fox and Friends.” .@RepGregSteube hits "first out-of-the-park homerun in #CongressionalBaseballGame in more than 40 years...
    Photo via Tori Richman/Tampa Bay BuccaneersIf last week’s game against the Rams was the first big test for the Bucs this season, they pretty much wrote their name at the top and left every answer blank. But fear not. It’s one game. And with the Bucs’ signing of cornerback Richard Sherman this week, at least they aren’t sitting on their hands and letting this awful defense get worse.  This Sunday night the Bucs will have a chance to show the league that they’re still the defending champs, when TB12 will face his former team the New England Patriots for the first time since leaving before last season.  The Bucs should blow the Pats out of the water, 35-17. The Patriots lack the pass rush to disrupt the GOAT, and Brady is probably pretty heated over losing to the Rams in such an embarrassing fashion last week.  However, the big question mark will be how this defense bounces back. They will get an incredibly favorable matchup, as rookie QB Mac Jones is pretty much what you’d get if you took all...
    The most memorable home run hit at Nationals Park this year may not have come from a National. Instead, it may have come from an elected Republican representative. Rep.

    Republican Florida Rep. Greg Steube hit a rare home run at the congressional baseball game Wednesday night. Wednesday’s home run is the first to go over the wall at Nationals Park since the congressional baseball game was moved there in 2008, according to the New York Post. A rare “out of the park home run” by Rep. Greg Steube helped the Republicans to a 13-12 win over the Democrats in what was called “one of the best games in the Congressional Baseball Game history.” https://t.co/GrrvLXNSna — WTOP (@WTOP) September 30, 2021 While President Joe Biden greeted GOP members in the dugout, Steube hit the first pitch in the bottom of the third inning over the rail in the first row of stands, The Post reported.
