1. During halftime of last night’s game, Bob Costas took a minute to address the Jovan Belcher situation, and gun control.
2. Many on Twitter were furious with Costas…
4. But I for one was impressed by his candor, and his timing. Too often we accuse people of “politicizing a tragedy,” when in fact what they’re doing is exploring how that tragedy could have been avoided at the time when those questions are best asked.
5. Gun control is a complicated issue, but if this isn’t a time to address it, I don’t know what is. So to Costas and Jason Whitlock:
- Trump gave a speech in Gettysburg, PA that was billed as a major policy address. He mainly focused on his usual grievances 🔴
- Hillary Clinton's campaign is making an unprecedented play for Utah, a state that hasn't gone blue since 1964 🔵
- AT&T has made a deal to buy Time Warner — owner of CNN, HBO, and Warner Bros. — in one of the biggest acquisitions ever 💰
- A black metal band crashed a couple's engagement shoot and the photos are 👌
