Scene of the Week: Myles Garrett Suspended Indefinitely for Thursday Night’s Brawl
Thursday Night, Myles Garrett rushed Steelers QB Mason Rudolph during their TNF game which resulted in a 21-7 win for the Browns. While the Browns did end up with the win, it almost felt like a loss, as Myles Garrett has been suspended the rest of the 2019 season due to his altercation with Steelers QB Mason Rudolph.
Garrett took Rudolph to the ground late in the fourth quarter. Rudolph was obviously upset, as this was not the first time he was brought down that night. Rudolph had his hands on Garrett’s helmet, and Myles Garrett was not happy about it. The pair then got into a pretty serious brawl that included players from both sides, Garrett then ripped off Rudolph’s helmet, and threw it at his head with a lot of force. What Garrett did is completely unacceptable, whether or not Rudolph initiated the brawl.
Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey showed what a true teammate is by sticking up for Rudolph and fighting back against Garrett, even with the knowledge that he will receive some sort of punishment in the end. Browns defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi was also suspended for one game for his involvement in the incident.
Trail Blazers Sign Carmelo Anthony
Former third overall pick Carmelo Anthony is back in the NBA, as he has signed with the Portland Trail Blazers. The Blazers sit at 4-8, a record not many people envisioned for this team. The Blazers now hope to add some scoring and veteran leadership with former superstar Anthony.
Bellinger and Trout Win MVP
Cody Bellinger and Mike Trout have won the MLB MVP with Bellinger winning it for the National League and Trout winning it for the American League.
Bellinger proved to the league he is one of its best players, even at age 24. Bellinger batted .305, had 47 HRs, and topped off his incredible season with 115 RBs in only 156 games. While Bellinger and the Dodgers did not make it past the NLDS, this Dodgers team is legit, and they have one of the best players in Bellinger leading the charge.
Trout is the 11th person in MLB history to win MVP three times and is only 28 years old. Trout is already a lock for the Hall of Fame, adding another stellar season to his incredible career. Trout batted .291, hit 45 HRs, and hit 104 RBIs. It’s Mike Trout’s world, and we are all living in it.
