TDR: Don’t want to pull a hammy

* Off the bench *

And our third and final release for The Daily Rally Podcast presented by Heavy.com is a conversation with SVP of Communications for the PGA TOUR Laura Neal! Laura is a mentor and advisor to me, and someone I really admire. The bottom line is: she’s just really good at her job. Take a listen to her discuss what it’s like to be the commissioner’s brand advisor, her rise from entry-level to SVP and the importance of recognizing there are different types of fandom. Subscribe and please leave a rating and review! Get up and Rally!

* Leading off *

Fadeaway

And the Rockets take the lead. Houston beat the Warriors in an exciting Game 5, and now they lead the series 3-2. One more win and they are headed to the finals. One teeny tiny problem though – Chris Paul has a hamstring injury. He will be evaluated today to see if he can play in Game 6, and the Rockets really do need him, especially considering teammate James Harden is having a bit of a shooting slump. Like, he almost tied the NBA playoff record for most three-point attempts without a make. “Who Cares?” is what Harden had to say about that. So, we can expect the Warriors to make a final charge to force a Game 7, and we’ll have to wait and see if Chris Paul can make it to the party.

Baby Daddy

Alright, lady horses. Who wants to make a baby with the winner of the first two races of the Triple Crown? Coolmore, who owns the breeding rights to the last Triple Crown winner American Pharoah, bought the breeding rights to Justify for a cool (heh) $60 million. To be fair, nothing is finalized because everyone is focused on Justify winning the Belmont. For a little perspective: American Pharoah made $40 million in his first year making babies post-triple crown and boasted a $200,000 Stud Fee. So he made a lot of babies with a lot of ladies. The child support has to be ridiculous! Ammiright?! **Gallops out the door. Never seen again.**

* Play under review *

Incognito

New details have emerged concerning NFL free agent Richie Incognito’s outburst at a gym. He was put in a psychiatric treatment facility after he started throwing things at people. When police showed up, Richie said he was part of the NSA and was being tracked by the government. He said he couldn’t tell the officers anything else because they didn’t have the proper clearance. Incognito was treated for mental health issues a few years ago, and has been having a bit of an up and down offseason. He has come in and out of retirement, fired his agent, signed a contract with the Bills then said he wanted out of it. Here’s hoping he gets the proper treatment.
