- Left side base hit. Here comes Gurriel. He'll score. Going to third with nobody there is Siri, he pops up, comes to the plate, two-run score. 4-1, Astros on top.

JARED QUAY: The Houston Astros beat the Braves in game two of the World Series last night, evening things out at one game apiece.

- Score a run and safe.

JARED QUAY: Right here on The Rush is probably the first you're seeing it. The television ratings for game one on Monday were the lowest ever for a World Series opener on a non-neutral site. I love baseball but, let's be honest, I'm not excited about watching the cheating "Trashtros," our derogatory tomahawk chop every night. And it's all good because there was more than enough drama in the sports world for everyone to be entertained.

- Word?

JARED QUAY: Nothing in sports is more dramatic than the NFL right now and I'm not even talking about the games.

- Go on.

JARED QUAY: The annual owners meeting is going down in New York City and these dudes are wildin' more than Real Housewives at a Bravo reunion.

- No, no, no. No! No! No!

JARED QUAY: You've got Deshaun Watson trade talk, owners being mad at Rams boss Stan Kroenke over relocating fees, and Bills owner Terry Pegula leaving meetings after being exposed to someone with COVID. Whew. But the craziest of them all, as always, is the Washington Football Team.

- What? What now?

JARED QUAY: Former WFT employees crashed the event demanding to see a written report of the NFL's investigations into the team's misconduct. And Raiders owner Mark Davis joined the chorus as the only owner to publicly state that he wants to see the investigation in writing. And you know Davis is thinking, how did the only team truly impacted by the investigation to Washington end up being the Raiders? Not to toot our own horn or anything--


JARED QUAY: --but you got to reach at least Manza Young's column on the Washington debacle. It is straight fire. There is some good news coming out of the NFL though.

- Are you sure?

JARED QUAY: Yep. My guy Mark Ingram is being traded from the Texans to the Saints. Ingram was on the Saints for years, racking up 6,007 rushing yards and 50 touchdowns. As of today, he only needs 89 yards to become the all-time leading rusher in New Orleans history. Might be tough to snatch the record when you're playing behind Alvin Kamara, who is apparently thrilled to have his old teammate back. But really, anything beats better than being on the toxic Texas right now. I mean, they won one game against the Jaguars and then it's like they don't even want to win. So Mark, congratulations. Welcome back to the playoffs, my friend.
