Looks like they have saved the baseball season

https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/33470321/sources-mlb-union-reach-tentative-agreement-new-cba-salvage-162-game-season

Major League Baseball and the MLB Players Association reached a tentative agreement on a new collective-bargaining agreement Thursday, ending the league's 99-day lockout of the players and salvaging a 162-game season, sources familiar with the situation told ESPN.
MLB had pushed for expanding the postseason to 12 teams -- a plan to which the MLBPA agreed. Additionally, player uniforms will feature advertising for the first time, with patches on jerseys and decals on batting helmets.

Other elements of the deal include:

A 45-day window for MLB to implement rules changes -- among them a pitch clock, ban on shifts and larger bases in the 2023 season
The National League adopting the designated hitter
A draft lottery implemented with the intent of discouraging tanking
Draft-pick inducements to discourage service-time manipulation
Limiting the number of times a player can be optioned to the minor leagues in one season

Brady has seen how terrible the NFC looks in 2022 and decided to give it another go.

I'll believe it when he's not there WK1 in September.

Inevitable.

NBA playoffs heating up nicely.

Booker out for the Sun's kinda levels the playing field. Seems wide open right now. Warriors have Curry, Thompson, and Poole going off but Memphis and Morant should not be dismissed. Jazz have a well rounded team but yet find themselves 2-1 down to the Mac's with no Doncic

The East is wide open...Nets 2 down, Milwaukee have Middleton out, Heat looking good but the 6ers have Embid and Harden

Most open I can remember (in my 8 year experience).

The NFL draft is on tonight. Who will go number 1? The favourite to go number one is Walker the defensive end from Georgia. Not my choice.
