Aaron Judge hit a historic 62nd home run, catapulting the Yankees superstar into sole possession of the American League single-season home run record. Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady and supermodel Gisele Bündchen are reportedly hiring divorce lawyers after publicly discussing their marital problems over the past few years. Plus, we are learning more about the fan who caught Aaron Judge’s historic 62nd home run ball.
MINTY BETS: In the second to last game of the regular season, Aaron Judge finally hit home run number 62.
- High fly ball, deep left. There it goes, soaring into history! He's done it! He has done it, 62!
MINTY BETS: And how great is the reaction of Judge's Yankees teammates jumping out of the dugout to celebrate? I bet they're not as happy as this guy. Since he caught the 62 ball in the stands, he could probably buy the entire Rangers organization for the price of that ball. Yankees manager Aaron Boone pulled Judge from the game in the bottom of the second inning for a well-deserved break, following 55 consecutive starts.
- That's a lot.
MINTY BETS: After surpassing Roger Maris' famed record, Judge stands alone as Major League Baseball's single season home run King.
- Well, not exactly.
MINTY BETS: OK, so known cheaters Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire, and Sammy Sosa have hit more dingers. But in my book, they've got asterisks by their names.
- What about Judge?
MINTY BETS: I don't administer his pee test, so I can't say for certain. But I sure as hell hope he's clean. Can't we have nice, genuine moments in sports anymore?
- It's complicated.
MINTY BETS: You know what else is complicated? Marriage.
- You hated me.
- You hated me.
TOM BRADY: She didn't feel like I was doing my part for the family. She felt like I would play football all season and she would take care of the house. And then all of a sudden, when that season ended, I'd be like, great, let me get into all my other business activities. And she's sitting there, going, well, when are you going to do things for the house? She wasn't satisfied with our marriage.
MINTY BETS: Back in April of 2020, Tom Brady told Howard Stern that his supermodel wife, Gisele Bundchen, was unhappy in their marriage, because the quarterback seemed to commit more time to football than to their family. Here we are, just over two years later, and the New York Post is reporting that the couple has hired divorce lawyers.
- Come on, no one could have seen this coming.
MINTY BETS: This is how The Rush covered Brady's retirement announcement back in March.
- 41 days is how long it took Tom Brady to realize how much harder it is to be a stay at home dad than an NFL quarterback.
MINTY BETS: Pulling a fast one on your wife like that--
- Big mistake, big, huge.
MINTY BETS: To be honest, though, I'm surprised this didn't happen earlier, like when Tom let Antonio Brown move in, yikes.
