Sports this 'n' that

 Sometimes, peer pressure can be a good thing, if applied correctly.

The Buffalo Bills are hoping that's the case as training camp opens next week.

Receiver Cole Beasley has been very anti-vaccine when it comes to COVID-19. However, fellow receivers Stefon Diggs & Emmanuel Sanders are trying to convince him to get over himself and take the vaccine before camp opens. The NFL has made it clear that any COVID outbreaks during the 2021 season will result in team forfeitures, and, possibly, additional penalties.

Beasley, who came over from Dallas a couple of years back, just doesn't get it. Now is not the time to be selfish. And that goes for other NFL players who have the same mentality. Stay tuned.
A Minnesota race track announcer, filling in at a stock car track in Iowa, was booted from the latter gig for a racist rant prior to a recent program. His primary employers in Minnesota are planning to salute him when he returns to their track.

The ignorance of these idiots is just ridiculous. Nothing like this ever happens at Lebanon Valley.
As part of the opening ceremonies at the Olympics in Tokyo, the People's Movie Star, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, whose next film, "Jungle Cruise", opens next week, made a video saluting the competitors.

Need we add the games are airing on NBC, home of Young Rock?
While the Washington "Football Team" is delaying a formal name change until next year, the Cleveland Indians didn't waste much time making a change.

Come 2022, the team will be known as the Cleveland Guardians. The team rolled out a press conference, complete with a video, narrated by 2-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks, explaining the decision.

The name refers to the city's rich history, but there are some folks who are a little salty over the decision. Including a certain geriatric brat.....

"WAAAAHHH! They shouldn't change it! WAAAAHHH!"

America's Oldest Baby just had to complain so he could make another headline.

Conversely, some folks on social media made references to the "Guardians of The Galaxy" movie series, including director James Gunn, whose next film, "The Suicide Squad", opens in two weeks.

Your move, Daniel Snyder.
