Mbappe, Ronaldo and other soccer stars mourn Pelé I The Rush
Tributes poured in from around the globe when Brazilian soccer icon Pelé died at age 82, the Dallas Cowboys beat the Josh Dobbs-led Tennessee Titans and former professional kickboxer Andrew Tate scores the worst own goal in the history of own goals after trolling climate activist Greta Thunberg takes a dark and unexpected turn.
MINTY BETS: Brazilian soccer great Pelé died on Thursday, at age 82. The three-time World Cup champion is universally recognized as the most important player in the history of the beautiful game. A great example of Pele's influence came in 1969, when both sides of the Nigerian Civil War agreed to a 48-hour ceasefire to watch Pelé and Santos take on the Nigerian National Team in an exhibition game in Lagos.
Decades after his playing career ended, tributes poured in from all over the world, when news broke that Pelé had died from cancer complications. From Ronaldo, to Neymar, to Lloyd, the present-day greats paid their respects. One of the last tweets from Pelé's account was words of thanks and encouragement for Kylian Mbappé, during this year's World Cup. The French superstar posted a moving photo of him and Pelé, writing, "The King of football has left us, but his legacy will never be forgotten."
In the United States, a different kind of football took center stage on Thursday night, as the Cowboys took on the Titans. Dallas debuted a dope new helmet for the game in Nashville. Meanwhile, the Titans debuted a new quarterback. Ryan Tannehill is injured, so enter Josh Dobbs.
- Just Dobbs?
MINTY BETS: He has practically no NFL playing experience, but dude broke football records at Tennessee, where he had a 4.0 GPA in aerospace engineering. That's got to be harder than football, right? Well, Pro Football is hard too, as Dobbs found out in the Titans loss to the Cowboys.
Now, nobody on any playing field lost as hard as Andrew Tate, on Thursday. This is our last "Rush" episode of 2022, and we're going out with a bang, with one of the wildest stories of the year. Yesterday we told you how former professional kickboxer turned hateful media personality Andrew Tate trolled climate activist Greta Thunberg, on Twitter, only to be KO'd by the 19-year-old with this devastating reply.
Tate was all up in his feelings after taking that digital roundhouse. So he lashed out at Greta, in a video. Which featured a box of Jerry's Pizza in Romania.
Apparently, Tate and his brother were wanted by Romanian law enforcement, and the pizza box tipped off authorities, who arrested the brothers at their Bucharest home on suspicion of human trafficking and organized crime. Oh my God. First of all, those rumors of Tate fighting Jake Paul next year can be put to rest right this minute. And second, dude scored the worst own goal in the history of own goals. If you come for Queen Greta, you best not miss. See you all in 2023.
