WATER COOLER TALK
🏎 Lewis Hamilton had quite a weekend at the Brazilian Grand Prix, overcoming two separate penalties to win the race and cutting Max Verstappen’s F1 lead to 14 points with three races remaining.
Hamilton started in last place for Saturday’s qualifier after a technical infringement on Friday. He qualified fifth but then received a five-place penalty ahead of race day for an engine change.
Starting 10th on Sunday, Hamilton blitzed through the field to win the race by a full 10 seconds. One of the best drives you'll see.
⚽️ The US Men’s National Team defeated Mexico for the third time this year, jumping into 1st place in CONCACAF’s World Cup qualifying.
The US played with some extra fire after Mexico goalkeeper Memo Ochoa said “Mexico is the mirror in which the US wants to see itself.” The USMNT took it so personally, star Christian Pulisic wrote it on his shirt and let everyone know after he scored.
🥇 There’s patience, then there’s US high jumper Eric Kanard who was awarded the 2012 Olympic gold medal in the men’s high jump nine years after the event.
Originally winning silver, Kanard was awarded the gold after the original gold medalist had the title stripped as a part of the Russian doping scandal… nine years later.
🏈 Former Raider coach Jon Gruden is suing the NFL and commissioner Roger Goodell for “selectively leaking” his private emails in an attempt to torpedo his career.
Several of Gruden’s emails, which contained racist and misogynistic language, were leaked during the NFL’s probe into the Washington Football Team’s ownership.
Based on the language used, Gruden's issue isn't that his emails were leaked but moreso that only his emails were leaked.
Of over 650,000 emails collected during the investigation, Gruden's emails were the only ones made public.
🏏 Australia topped New Zealand by a commanding eight wickets in the T20 Cricket World Cup finals to take home their first-ever T20 World Cup trophy.
We also do not understand the concept of a wicket, but have been told this is a massive win for the Aussies.
Over the last three weeks, the NFL decided to turn itself on its head:
1-5 Jets beat the 5-2 Bengals
1-6 Jaguars beat the 5-2 Bills
2-7 Dolphins beat the 6-2 Ravens
And it continued this week:
(2-6) Washington Football Team 29vs. (6-2) Tampa Bay Buccaneers 19
Brady entered the game first in the NFL in passing yards and touchdowns, but looked sluggish coming off the bye en route to 220 yards, 2 TDs, but 2 INTs.
Look, all we know about econ is if the Fed keeps printing $120 billion every month, our tailgates are going to cost quite a bit more. And that kinda sucks.
Even intern Karl knows that hard assets, like art, are the key to hedging against solar-powered money printers. His thesis: when inflation is at least 3% (aka this very minute), the S&P 500 threw up a 3.8% average real return vs 23.2% for Contemporary Art.
Don’t worry. We got you covered. There’s a little-known, yet incredibly smart way for the rest of us to add art to our portfoliowithout insider trading or NFT monkeys.
Early adopters like Karl already saw a 32% net return from their sole Banksy exit. That’s pretty freaking good. The best part?
Stat:36. Steph Curry has the most games with 9+ three-pointers made in NBA history with 36. That’s 27 more than the next closest player, James Harden.
Quote: "We want Spencer."
-- During Saturday's 14-27 loss to Baylor, Oklahoma fans struggled to make up their mind who they want at quarterback. Eventually, Caleb Williams was benched for Spencer Rattler but the game was out of hand.
Baylor rushed for 300 yards on the Sooners.
Highlight:Texas Tech kicker Jonathan Garibay drilled a walk-off 62-yard field goal to give the Red Raiders the win over Iowa State. They’re bowl-eligible for the first time since 2017.
It’s the third-longest college field goal in 25 years.
