🏈NFL: The NFL Draft finished on Saturday after seven rounds, 259 picks, and setting some cool new records: Eight quarterbacks were selected in the first three rounds for the first time ever; Alabama tied a record with six first-round picks; and a record seven offensive players were selected consecutively to start the draft. Check out the full draft list to see how your team did.

⚾MLB: One of our favorite parts of the baseball season, besides jaw-dropping home runs, is hearing about the ridiculous ways players injure themselves off the field. Enter Oakland A’s Jesus Luzardo. The left-handed pitcher broke his left pinkie this weekend playing video games. Can we get a facepalm emoji?

🤨WTF: Former Olympian Caitlyn Jenner is running for governor of California her mouth. When asked about recent state legislation banning transgender kids from playing on sports teams that match their gender identities, the one-time track & field star, who is trans, said that she supports the bills, because “we need to protect girls’ sports in our schools.” 

We don’t have to tell you how disgusted and disappointed we are with that statement, but we do want to give more context about these awful new bills popping up across North America, in this week’s episode of The GIST of It, coming at you Wednesday.
