Clash of the quadragenarian quarterbacks: Tom Brady vs. Drew Brees
  + stars: | 2021-01-15 | by ( Ben Morse | ) edition.cnn.com + 0.00   time to read: +4 min
(CNN) Should this NFL game be shown as a live broadcast or on the History Channel? That's the question that's been put to Tom Brady and Drew Brees ahead of their meeting in the NFL playoffs this Sunday, the first postseason game in NFL history to feature two opposing starting quadragenarian quarterbacks. The 43-year-old Brady tweeted a "History Awaits" picture ahead of the clash, while 42-year-old Brees gave it a thumbs up, saying : "This is good!" Brady joked that he will have to overcome an age difference with Brees if he wants to win on Sunday. Two of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history Brees and Brady share a few words after the regular season game between the Saints and the Buccaneers.

“He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding.” “These facts require immediate actions by President Trump,” he continued. A few Republicans defended him, but most others simply argued that a rush to impeach Mr. Trump without a hearing or an investigation raised constitutional questions. With Democrats controlling the House, Mr. Trump is expected to become the first American president to be impeached twice. Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington sent a letter to Mr. Trump on Sunday asking for an emergency declaration to obtain additional funding for inauguration security. On Tuesday, a federal inspector general questioned an order to deliver the estimates before Mr. Trump leaves office, after whistle-blowers warned that the rush would imperil their accuracy.

The National Football League came out the gate swinging for its playoff openers, led by ViacomCBS Sports and Nickelodeon's simulcast, which attracted more than 30 million viewers combined. Sunday's CBS airing between the New Orleans Saints and Chicago Bears attracted roughly 30 million viewers, and its kids' version on Nickelodeon drew approximately 2 million, becoming the Nickelodeon's "most-watched program among total viewers in nearly four years," the network said. The NFL's attempt to solicit younger viewers drew praise for its Nickelodeon-themed digital effects and commentary on social media. The game saw the Saints beat the Bears, 21-9, and even featured Saints coach Sean Payton getting slimed on Nickelodeon in the postgame. Sunday's NBC Sports Pittsburgh Steelers-Cleveland Browns contest also averaged 26 million across all platforms and 24.8 million viewers on NBC and peaked at 27.6 million viewers around 9:15-9:30 p.m.

Jeannie Morris, a television sports reporter, was in the visitors’ dugout in 1972 before a game at Comiskey Park in Chicago when the Hall of Fame hitter Ted Williams, who was managing the Texas Rangers, ordered her out. “This is my dugout, get out of here — no women in my dugout,” she recalled him bellowing when she was interviewed by the Chicago Bears Network in 2015. It belongs to the Chicago White Sox and they said I could be here. But she ultimately found great success, becoming a prominent sportscaster in Chicago and winning 12 Emmy Awards. She was spirited, in an easy way, but think of how strong she had to be.”

How animals invaded the world of sport in 2020

(CNN) A bit like cats meowing and dogs barking their way across the Internet, 2020 was a bumper year for animals in sport. Back in September, a blue macaw decided to join in on Brazil's women's team scrimmage, landing on defender Bruna Benites' head at the start of the second half. Dubbed "Pelé," the macaw regularly watches men's and women's national team trainings. Meanwhile, four penguins from Chicago's Shedd Aquarium found their way to Soldier Field in late November. But reptiles weren't going to let the rest of the animal kingdom have all the fun.

Sportsdigita, an all-in-one cloud-based presentation software company owned by former National Hockey League executive Angelina Lawton, sees opportunity amid the pandemic as sports teams conduct business online instead of in person. Sportsdigita is a subscription-based software company that's seen growth since Covid-19 halted in-person meetings. It competes with other services, like Microsoft PowerPoint and Microsoft Teams, both of which are included in an Office subscription. Lawton said the Sportsdigita's Digideck platform's professional services, which come with subscriptions, help it stand out against competitors. Lawton said the coronavirus pandemic sped up Sportsdigita's development cycle, too.

In 2020, 10 Black quarterbacks started for the now 32 teams in their respective first games. "The knock on Black quarterbacks was they didn't have the intellect or academics to play the position," he tells CNN. Rookie quarterback Jalen Hurts faced question marks over his ability to be an NFL quarterback despite a successful college career. Avery said without Black coaches, coordinators and general managers, opportunities for Black quarterbacks are limited. The current crop of supremely talented African American quarterbacks, says Moon, are successfully changing people's perceptions of Black quarterbacks.
