Mattress Mac has done it again this time he’s bet on the Houston Astros to win the World Series

He put down 2 mill to win 35 million.

The series is tied at 1 game a piece as the Astros took game 2 last night in Texas 7-2.

Game 3 shifts to Atlanta, Saturday night at 8:09 on Fox.

The Cavs never trailed last night as they defeated the Clippers in LA 92-79.

Collin Sexton led Cleveland with 26pts 

The Lakers are up next tomorrow night at 10:30 on Bally Sports Ohio

The Lakers blew a 26pt lead to the 123-115 to OKC.

Good news from Aunt Becky:

Lori Loughlin has agreed to pay the full tuition costs of two students in an attempt to make amends for her part in the college admissions scandal.

She’s reportedly dropping over $500-thousand for the unnamed college students’ four-year programs and any additional expenses.

The private arrangement she made is in addition to other court ordered payments.

On April 17th, 1951, Mickey Mantle made his major league debut with the New York Yankees. A surviving ticket from that game was just auctioned off, and became the second-most valuable ticket ever auctioned, bringing a high bid of $141,395. The only stub more valuable was one from the 1903 World Series that came from what used to be Charlie Sheen’s collection which went for 175K at auction.

An onlyfriends model (Tori Lynn) is claiming that Seattle Seahawks Wide Receiver DK Metcalf requested a foursome with her. Supposedly, Lynn spilled the beans after Metcalf invited her to his place. It led to an angry rant being posted, exposed Snapchat messages, and photos. Metcalf hasn’t responded as of yet, but it does serve as a warning that you never know who’s going to put you on blast.

All that over a round of Golf? Lol

Famous sportscaster Joe Buck  just revealed that he once relieved himself while calling an NFL game. Now, the nature of live broadcasts suggests that whoever’s calling a game has to be available—even if nature calls. Buck recognized his special duty and—he managed to multitask during a Packers-Falcons game in 1994.

“I have peed in a bottle while calling an NFL touchdown, I swear to god,” Buck said. “I was peeing in a trash can and they handed me a little water bottle. … We came back from a break and I was peeing and the action started. And I called a touchdown while urine was coming out of me.”

Thanks to Taco Bell’s 10th annual “Steal a Base, Steal a Taco” World Series promotion. Taco Bell will be giving away free Doritos Locos Tacos on November 4th (that’s next Thursday).

Atlanta Braves second baseman Ozzie Albies stole a base in Game 1.
