Just as every Patriot fan was so mad about all the craziness about Tom Brady missing the first 4 games of the season, that the Patriots will be 0-4 to start out. And everyone else was ready to show the Patriots that they can lose. But, something that will change everything happened. Tom Brady was released from his 4 game suspension. That will make all Patriots fans happy. And that will make everyone else not so happy. But, next time the Patriots try cheating, something bad is going to happen, either being fined $1 Million dollars or taking away your star quarterback for a while.
The Washington Capitals had a 3-2 lead over the New York Rangers in the Stanley Cup Playoffs Semi-Finals. That would mean that the Capitals would have an advantage, right? That was not what happened. The Rangers took a 2-0 lead after the first period, including a goal with 0.3 seconds. Both goals were by Chris Krieder. Then, the Rangers get pushed over a little for room for a Capitals goal. In the third, 4-3, and Alexander Ovechkin had a great shot that looked like it had a clear goal but Henrik Lundquvist didn't allow it as he made a great save. That would be it and the Rangers will challenge the Capitals on Wednesday in Game 7.
Entering May 8th's game versus the Baltimore Orioles, A-Rod was tied with Wille Mays on the homer list. They both were in fourth place and A-Rod was fighting his way to get to own fourth place. On May 8th, A-Rod had a shot out to right field and Delmon Young jumped and robbed A-Rod of the fourth place home run! But the next at-bat, A-Rod launched a ball to left-center field and this was not robbed. Alex Rodriguez will now be in fourth place on the home run list by himself.

Remember the Deflategate? Those deflated balls in the AFC Championship? Well, that topic has come back as Tom Brady is thought to be lying about not knowing about all of the deflated footballs. A cheater like that deserves some penalty, right? The NFL will be suspending Tom Brady from at least the first two games of the NFL season. After that, do you think Tom Brady can be trusted? Obviously, no.

BYU Men's basketball was favored to win over Ole Miss Men's basketball. It totally looked like that in the beginning, when BYU ended a 13 point lead first half. This game was 99.9% going to BYU at the time. But then, with 7:47 left in the game, Stefan Moody made a three-pointer, which led Ole Miss to a big win that would send Ole Miss into the second round in the NCAA Tournament against Xavier, a number 6 ranked seed.

In their 9th game in the season, which was against Montana State, Kentucky won 86-28, a 58 point game! They were for sure going in the right direction and when they came back from 9 points against Georgia, they were going to win because they were just that good, even if it was near the start of the 2nd half. They deserved that 30-0 season because they kept doing the best job they could.
