The Rush: Celebrating Drew Brees’ $5M donation and MLB Fauxpening Day 2020!

Yahoo Sports

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 Friday, March 27, 2020 and here’s what Jared’s cooking up:

  • Drew Brees appears in the Yahoo Sports Good News Tracker as his pledge to donate $5 million will provide over 10,000 meals a day in the state of Louisiana.

  • In an effort to avoid widespread layoffs, the NBA may cut the salaries of some of its highest paid executives by 20%, including that of Commissioner Adam Silver.

  • Yesterday was supposed to be MLB Opening Day, but because of COVID-19, we were left to simulate the action with a video game, thanks to Yahoo Sports writer Chris Cwik . Jared is proud to present the results in the first (and hopefully last) Fauxpening Day Celebration!

THE RUSH will be back Monday. Until then, check out archived episodes here.
