Last-Minute Longshot Stuns at Churchill Downs

No one could have predicted the surprise upset at the 2022 Kentucky Derby. The long shot at 80-1, Rich Strike was a last-minute addition to the ticket and not even fully prepared before entering the race. He came from behind to pass the two favorites at the finish, with those horses coming in second and third. The owners and trainers have decided to keep him out of the upcoming Preakness at Pimlico, so a Triple Crown run is not in the cards this year. Are they saving Rich Strike for the Belmont Stakes?

Is LeBron James pushing to be traded from the Lakers? If so, will they keep Russell Westbrook? Could he be the logical facilitator for the younger members of the team?

Has Phil Mickelson been suspended from the PGA tour? What is his connection with the LIV Golf League? What about the PGA Championship, which is separate from the tour – can he defend his title? Will Tiger Woods take the focus off of him during the championship tournament?

Tom Brady has decided to un-retire to rejoin the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Fox Sports has signed him to be its lead analyst for $375M when he finally hangs up his cleats. Will he overshadow the current team of analysts when his turn comes?

Major League Baseball attendance has taken a downward turn in some markets but is up in others. Will the lack of fans in some of the lowest attended arenas cause those teams to consider a move? Is a day at the ballpark too cost-prohibitive for the average fan? And does TV coverage of 162 games per team per season oversaturate the fanbase?
