UFC 249 Pick’Em Challenge

Dana White’s prediction of the UFC being the first “real” sport to return to action appears to be coming to fruition on Saturday.

Top 10 NBA Duos revisited

Before the NBA season started, and was subsequently suspended, I put together a top ten list of the league’s best duos, which can be found here.
