Megan Rapinoe rips Draymond Green for his takes on women’s sports, Tom Brady says he has ‘a little sickness in me’ on GMA, Bills’ Josh Allen is unsure if he will get the COVID-19 vaccine and Shaq helps a young man out in Atlanta.
MEGAN RAPINOE: Having all of the resources that he has and the ability to have a much more educated opinion, that he just hasn't. And then drag all these other people in it by tagging them and then, obviously, and kind of showed your whole ass and, you know, not even understanding what we all talk about all the time, whether it's WNBA players or us here on the National team. So that was frustrating.
MATT HARMON: Thank you, Megan, for putting Draymond Green in his place again after he tweeted out a series of ludicrous women sports takes all the way back in March.
MEGAN RAPINOE: You know think that we've asked for more money. I mean, what are we screaming about nonstop? And we're getting obnoxious to ourselves, to be honest.
MATT HARMON: Now, Draymond, my guy. Little piece of advice here. You don't have to have a take on everything. But, if it's just a little attention you're after there are better ways of going about it. Like, remember when you did this?
- Watch the leg.
- The follow-through on the foot.
MATT HARMON: That was a little testy--
ARCHER: I see what you did there.
MATT HARMON: --and not something you should do ever.
MATT HARMON: Apparently, Tom Brady has an illness. No, not that one. The seven-time Super Bowl champion had this to say on "Good Morning America" the other day.
TOM BRADY: Like, I still want to play. You know, I got, like, a little sickness in me that just wants to throw a fricking spiral, you know I mean?
MATT HARMON: No, Tom. I don't know what you mean. Most of us just want to grab a large pizza and a cooler of beer and sit on the beach all day. Which, by the way, isn't this my offseason? Why am I not doing that?
- You stop complaining and just man up.
MATT HARMON: I guess it's finally been confirmed. Tom Brady, a little bit of a weirdo, but we kind of knew that already. I mean, between what he said on "GMA" and his TB12 diet, guy kind of seems like he's living in his own world. Which, he lives in Florida, so same thing. The only relatable thing that we've seen from old Tommy boy is him getting absolutely hammered at that Buccaneers boat parade, which, by the way, just for the record, boat drunk, one of the best drunks. So, I get it.
TOM BRADY: That was the best day of my life.
MATT HARMON: Now, I'm normally not the guy that says stick to sports, but maybe when it comes to matters of science let's just stick to sports. And right now, Buffalo Bills quarterback, Josh Allen, he's one of those people. Apparently he hasn't been vaccinated yet and he's still debating whether he should be. My thing is, why are we asking Josh Allen about vaccines? Who [BLEEP] cares? Like, was anyone out there sitting there just, hmm, gee, I really wonder where Josh Allen stands on this subject. Like I said at the top, you don't have to have a take on everything.
And now for our feel good story of the day, former NBA star Shaquille O'Neal paid for some random guy's engagement ring at a jewelry store in Atlanta. Now, personally, I think the money would have been better spent getting my dude there a haircut, but that is a totally different story. Point is, once again, Shaq saves the day and, frankly, the vibes on this episode of "The Rush." Now, hang on a second. Do we think, like, Shaq paying for this guy's ring is actually going to get him bonus points with his lady? Or is it going to hold it against him because he didn't really pay for it because I got a lot of other questions here. Someone needs to do a follow up on this story.
