Visions from the NHL’s future as a Vladimir Putin rival
Marchand was also instrumental in this past negotiation that canceled the 2020-21 season, his union now allowing 67 percent of players’ paychecks to go into escrow while the contracts are no longer guaranteed. With 21 percent of the players turning out to vote on the new deal, it passed easily.
But when Colbert challenged him to eat a strawberry – which Brady claimed he had never done before – he did so, with an uncomfortable look and reaction to go along with it.
Brady appeared on National Public Radio’s Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me quiz program this week, and described for the host what it was actually like to eat his first strawberry.
Like s***, was what TB12 said, to much laughter within the studio audience. He went onto explain why it tasted that way, thanks to childhood smells emanating from his kitchen refrigerator and the smell of strawberries in the fridge just being too much for him to stomach at the time.

Uh oh, Tom. That’s bound to end up on someone’s bulletin board next fall. And be ready for strawberry-scented jerseys, too.
The question now is whom will the Jets target at No. 3? This move does not mean they are focused on one of the top quarterbacks. It likely means they have three all rated near each other and feel like now they can come away with one. If they stayed at No. 6, they would have gotten the fourth-best quarterback at best.
The Jets may view this draft as having three top quarterbacks — like the 2004 quarterback draft with Eli Manning, Philip Rivers and Ben Roethlisberger.
There are four quarterbacks considered the top of this class — Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Josh Rosen and Baker Mayfield. The Jets spent considerable time last season scouting all of them, when there was an expectation the Jets could wind up with one of the top picks. Instead, the team went 5-11 and ended up with the No. 6 pick.
