Jimmy Fallon uses puppies to predict Kentucky Derby

Leave a comment

Jimmy Fallon has really nailed this whole adorable puppy and sports thing.

In a longstanding segment, Fallon utilizes puppies to predict which team/person will win the latest sporting event. The Kentucky Derby is no exception.

The Tonight Show host had 16 puppies representing all of the horses run toward a big trough of kibble and whichever puppy reached there first would win the Kentucky Derby.

Surprisingly, this one was actually a lot closer than expected, with a photo finish showing that No. 8 Mor Spirit edged out  No. 9 Mohaymen, No. 11 Destin and real-life favorite No. 2 Nyquist.

In case you have an absurd of faith in puppies and want to make your bets with this, Mor Spirit’s odds are 12-1

The puppies actually got it right on the Super Bowl, accurately predicting that the Broncos would win and the team from Denver did.

Sports world goes all-in on 2017 solar eclipse

Nick Saban may not have had any interest in checking out today’s much-hyped solar eclipse, but he seems to be the only one in the sports world.

At least according to these epic #SolarEclipse2017 sports Twitter moments.

The NASCAR community was on point with their eclipse celebrations, seriously you’re missing out if you’re not following any of these teams/drivers on Twitter.

But they weren’t the only ones.

Justin Rose, Rickie Fowler, Jason Day and Billy Horschel weren’t the only golfers taking in the views (with proper glasses), Tiger Woods bought into the hype too.

The Rome Braves had their break, but Bartolo Colon watching the eclipse will be your moment of zen.

And remember, if you were truly amazed by #SolarEclipse2017 goalie Ilya Bryzgalov has some more mind-blowing universal knowledge for you.

GILGO BEACH, N.Y. (AP) The son of World Wrestling Entertainment CEO Vince McMahon has been rescued unhurt from a helicopter that made an emergency landing in the ocean waters off New York.

Shane McMahon was the passenger in the Robinson R 44 helicopter that came down in the Atlantic Ocean off Long Island’s Gilgo Beach late Wednesday morning. The red aircraft could be seen bobbing on its bright yellow pontoons as small boats circled.

Shane McMahon is also a WWE executive. His mother is Linda McMahon, who heads the Small Business Administration in President Donald Trump’s White House.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the helicopter had taken off from Westchester County Airport in White Plains. The pilot issued a mayday call before going into the water.

It’s not yet clear what went wrong.
