    Happy Thursday! It was another brilliant day in Tokyo as the Olympics are in full force. The American’s took care of business in a dramatic night of swimming, bolstering their overall medal count lead over China, ROC, and the rest of the field. Speaking of fields, Aaron Rodgers is finally on one, but he’s not done making headlines after holding a very ~honest~ press conference regarding his relationship with the Packers. In the MLB, the Yankees acquired another All-Star in hopes of fueling a second-half run. Lastly, there were big moves made in the NHL as the free-agent whirlwind has begun to turn. We break it all down for you in bite-sized form… let’s bring the juice!

    Aaron Rodgers gave a very candid press conference yesterday explaining his situation in Green Bay but stated he ‘is not a victim’ – we should be in store for a pretty awkward and eventful year in Green Bay

    Lamar Jackson tested positive for Covid-19 and was forced to miss the beginning of Ravens training camp – Jackson recently tested positive last November, but will still be out for at least the next week

    Yankees agreed to a massive trade with the Rangers to acquire OF Joey Gallo – the Yankees offense becomes a lot stronger with the addition of slugger Gallo

    Trevor Bauer will be due in court between Aug. 16-19 regarding a restraining order related to his sexual assault charges – Bauer is on leave from the MLB until Aug. 6th, although that is likely to be extended

    Avalanche have completed a trade to acquire goalie Darcy Kuemper from the Coyotes after their previous starter, Philipp Grubauer, signed with the new Kraken

    Devils have signed defenseman Dougie Hamilton to 7-year, $63M deal – Hamilton was one of the top defensemen in this year’s playoff class

    Top Moments from Yesterday Olympic games

    The most exciting race in swimming lived up to the hype as Caeleb Dressel (USA) set an Olympic record to take the men’s 100m freestyle in epic fashion – Dressel held off a late push from Kyle Chambers (Australia) and Kliment Kolesnikov (ROC) in an awesome finish
    Bobby Finke (USA) had the race of his life in the men’s 800m freestyle, storming back all the way from 5th to 1st in the last 50 meters to take the gold – Fink wasn’t even expected to medal, and it seemed like he wouldn’t at the last turn until suddenly he found a second gear making a legendary final sprint
    The women’s 4x200m freestyle relay was an instant classic as Katie Ledecky (USA) chased down Australia (bronze) and nearly caught China (gold) in an unbelievable anchor leg to earn silver for the Americans in a race where all three medal teams broke the existing world record – Ledecky’s 1:53.76 final leg was easily the best split of the race as China and USA shocked a heavily favorited Australian team
    USA Women’s 3×3 Basketball Team wins gold defeating ROC 18-15 without ever trailing and were led by Stefanie Dolson (7 PTS) and Kelsey Plum (5 PTS) – the team of WNBA stars were dominant throughout the tournament only losing a meaningless game to Japan in the group stage finale
    Fiji Men’s Rugby wins gold beating New Zealand 27-12 making it back-to-back rugby titles for the Flying Fijians – their players were very emotional after the game
    Daiki Hashimoto (Japan) took home the gold in the men’s gymnastics individual all-around final, followed by Xiao Ruoteng (China) finishing second and Nikita Nagornyy (ROC) taking bronze – American’s Brody Malone finished 10th while Sam Mikulak came in 12th for a rather disappointing day… but then again, I can’t even touch my toes so who am I to judge
    Two American favorites reached the semifinals in their respective swimming events as Lilly King had the second-best qualifying time in the 200m breaststroke and Michael Andrew topped the field in the men’s 200m individual medley – medley is a combination of backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly, and freestyle… our favorite race
    Top seed Novak Djokovic (Serbia) advanced to the quarterfinals of the men’s tennis tournament with a 6-3, 6-1 win over Alejandro Davidovich Fokina (Spain) – a gold medal and a U.S. Open win in August would give Novak the “Golden Slam,” the rare feat of winning all four majors and the Olympics in the same year
