🏈NFL: The Jets leveraged last year’s terrible 2-14 record to bring in a phenomenal draft class, including BYU quarterback (QB) Zach Wilson and USC offensive lineman Alijah Vera-Tucker. 

  • New head coach Robert Saleh is hoping Wilson will become the face of the franchise after a very, very messy breakup with former QB and exciting Jets draft pick Sam Darnold. 
  • Meanwhile, the Giants miraculously pulled out a reasonably good draft after falling victim to treachery from their divisional rival, the Philadelphia Eagles. The G-Men used the 20th overall pick to snap up Florida wide receiver Kadarius Toney, an offensive powerhouse.

🏀NBA: The Knicks started their seriously daunting West Coast road trip on the right foot, beating the Houston Rockets 122–97. If they can keep that up for the next five road games…playoffs, here we come.

  • The Nets are on a road trip of their own, battling for the top spot in the Eastern Conference with the Philadelphia 76ers and the Milwaukee Bucks. Although the boys from Brooklyn lost a 117–114 nail-biter to the Bucks last night, they have a chance for redemption tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. ET.

🏒NHL: The Islanders clinched a postseason berth after shutting out their crosstown rivals, the Rangers, in two straight games this weekend. Impressive. At least we can watch one New York team in playoff hockey.
