Yahoo Sports Videos

WATCH THE VIDEO ABOVE to see today’s piping-hot, fresh-outta-the-oven episode of THE RUSH with Jared Quay! We’ll let you know everything you didn’t know you needed to know about sports. Other stuff too. But mostly sports.

It’s Monday, February 11, 2019, and here’s what Jared’s cooking up:

  • One positive wrinkle in the AAF’s presentation that the NFL would do well to imitate is broadcasting their replay officials discussing a call in real time. The Rush imagines what a typical conversation between zebras might sound like.


  • In honor of the Grammys, Jared hands out a Grushy to commemorate the best comeback of the weekend. The Clippers, the Thunder and the Utah Utes all had great come from behind victories…but an unexpected nominee steals the award.


THE RUSH with Jared Quay will be back tomorrow. In the meantime, check out all archived episodes of The Rush here, plus Yahoo Sports’ other Rush program:
