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 Thursday, December 3, 2020, and Yankees legend Bernie Williams joins Jared to discuss:

  • Whether he might have opted out of a MLB season played during a pandemic.

  • The recent challenges the NFL has faced battling COVID-19 during the season, such as the Ravens - Steelers game getting rescheduled a few times.

  • Why the Bronx Cheer can bring out both the best and the worst in an athlete.

  • How earning a BA in music after retiring from baseball humbled him.

  • PLUS: Be sure to watch Beyond Breathless, a documentary that draws awareness to idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), a devastating lung disease that took the life of Bernie Williams’ own father. The film premieres on A&E at December 5 at 12ET. For more information on IFP, visit
