Sports this 'n' that

 Let's give the Jets' 1st round pick, quarterback Zach Wilson of Brigham Young, some credit. He gets it.

Interviewed on Saturday, Wilson said that the starting job has to be earned, just like at any other level of football, be it high school, college, semi-pro, whatever. Wilson earned his spot at BYU, and awaits a competition come training camp in late July.
Mets ace Jacob deGrom left his start today vs. Arizona when he experienced some tightness in his side again, the same malady that forced him to miss a start vs. St. Louis last Monday.

Unfortunately for the Arizona Diamondbacks, they couldn't take advantage, as the Mets completed a 3 game sweep, 4-2, running their current winning streak to 5 in a row. If Philadelphia loses to Atlanta tonight (that game is underway as I write), the Mets will have sole possession of first place in the NL Least, heading into a 2 game interleague series with Baltimore and former Met Matt Harvey, starting on Tuesday.
Eight days ago, Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert had saddled his 7th Kentucky Derby winner when Medina Spirit crossed the finish line.

Today, there's a possibility that Medina Spirit could be retroactively disqualified after it was reported that the horse failed a drug test. Churchill Downs has hit Baffert with an indefinite suspension as a result, but Baffert plans on appealing.

The suspension would also be honored at Pimlico, site of next Saturday's Preakness Stakes, and by the New York Racing Association, ahead of next month's Belmont Stakes.

Unfortunately, someone with no interest in the Triple Crown just had to weigh in and whine. Ladies & gentlemen, Donald Trump:

"WAAAHH!! That horse is a drug junkie! WAAAHHH!"

Of course, Citizen Pampers had to piggyback on the news to push his scam that he was cheated out of the election 6 months ago. Let me offer this for Mr. Trump, since most of America would like him to go away:

                          S.      T.      F.     U.!
Well, we found out who the "golfer" is hitting a no-look putt to Michael Jordan's bemusement in that Gatorade ad. It's former soccer star Mia Hamm. Should've figured that given the pairing of more recent soccer star Abby Wambach with Usain Bolt.
