First up in our look around the sports world, Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen paid tribute to the late Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek by wearing these incredible cleats for the Vikings' Monday Night Football matchup against the Chicago Bears. One of the cleats features a picture of Trebek with a halo and the dates 1940-2020. The other cleat reads, "we will miss you, Alex - $19,000", the number choice shows love to Thielen's #19 jersey number.

Next up, the first female general manager in MLB history, Kim Ng was officially introduced by the Miami Marlins. The Marlins posted this video and photo of when Ng first met Marlins chief executive officer Derek Jeter, whom she first met when he was the Yankees’ shortstop in 1998. The video shows them both now, at Ng's formal introduction as general manager.

Lastly, the latest artifacts to arrive at the Pro Football Hall of Fame are Kansas City Chiefs guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif's medical scrubs. Duvernay-Tardif stepped away from the football field this year to join the frontlines fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.
