Tom Brady had some super helpers in James White’s converted a 2-point conversion in the fourth quarter and struggled into the end zone with the winning TD on the day. Brady completed 43 of 62 passes for a record-setting 466-yards and a pair of TDs.

Julian Edelman came up the catch of the game which Tom Brady called the greatest catch he has ever seen. Edelman finished with five catches for 87-yards,

Major League’s Hot Stove TV Show pays tribute to some of the greatest black players ever to play games in the majors.

Naturally, Jackie Robinson, the man who broke the color line in 1947 with the then Brooklyn Dodgers.

  1. Following the parade of blacks to MLB include Willie Mays, Willie McCovey, Ernie Banks, Roy Campanella, Hank Aaron, Bobby Bonds, Barry Bonds, Frank Robinson, Monty Irvin, Tommy Davis, Dusty Baker and the list goes on and on.

And the beat continues!

With LeBron James fouling out after he tied the game with seconds to go, that doesn’t mean the game is over. Not as long as Kyrie Irving has 17 points in his tank and Kevin Love can produce 32 points the Cavaliers can still win 140-135 in overtime. The Cavs are 35-15 at the moment.

Why is Paul George of the Indiana Pacers a happy man and playing like he should? George explains shortly before the Pacers left for London: “I had a night of prayer and a morning of refreshment. I’m doing ...what I love to do, and am blessed to play this game. That’s honestly what changed it—just being happy in the moment I’m in and enjoying it.”

And the beat continues!

The L.A. Clippers’ Raymond Felton says: “It’s all about mental strength and just letting it be. I deal with afterward. I’m not really worried about the pain. I can tolerate it, but I’m not just really worried about it,”

That’s it! That’s the end!
