The Rush: Dr. Fauci lets facts dictate sports return, and right now the facts aren’t good

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 Wednesday, July 1, 2020 and here’s what Jared’s cooking up:

  • In Washington DC, science-skeptic Senator Rand Paul questioned infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci over whether the return of sports is safe.

  • COVID-19 continued to muddy the NBA’s return as the Denver Nuggets closed their practice facility, and two more Brooklyn Nets tested positive.

  • Marco Gonzalez of Toronto FC posted a picture of his lunch in the MLS Disney bubble that reminded Twitter of the infamous Fyre Fest cheese sandwich.

  • PLUS: 2K21 reveals its cover athlete is a Video Dame, Tim Tebow can’t catch a break, and UCLA gets an offer that it can and absolutely will refuse.


THE RUSH will be back tomorrow! Until then, stay safe and check out all of our previous episodes here.
