WAMC Sports Report: Celtics Coach Commentary for the 2022-2023 Season

Boston Celtics suspended coach Aimee Odoka for the 2022-23 season. This step is effective immediately and without guarantee that it will return the privilege. The Celtics said Thursday night that Odoka had been suspended due to “violations of team policies”. Earlier on Thursday, two people familiar with the matter said Odoka had been punished for an inappropriate relationship with a member of the organization. These people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team has not released these details publicly.

NFL

Jacobi Brissett threw two touchdown passes, Nick Chubb ran to score, and the Cleveland Browns bounced back from an epic meltdown four days ago to defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers 29-17. The Browns built a nine-point lead early in the fourth in the 1-yard Chubb race and then carried on with dear life. On Sunday, Cleveland blew a 13-point lead in the final two minutes and lost by a point to the New York Jets. The Steelers pulled in within 23-17 on Chris Boswell’s 34-yard field goal with 1:48 left but was unable to recover a kick to the side. Brown finished the match with a meaningless defensive touchdown.

While Aaron Rodgers deeply appreciates what Tom Brady accomplished during an unparalleled career in the NFL, he doesn’t see himself following the lead of the seven-time Super Bowl champion playing well into his forties. The 38-year-old explains that he has interests outside of football and believes he will be ready to move on before he turns 45. The 45-year-old Brady returned during training camp for season 23, to pursue what he called “unfinished business” with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs host Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, the first meeting between the two teams since the NFC Championship game two seasons ago. The Bucs beat this guy on his way to winning the Super Bowl.

MLB

Aaron Judge dropped a few feet short of Homer’s record 61, hitting a 404-foot drive captured in front of the central field wall, and the New York Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox 5-4 in the 10th inning for Josh Donaldson one to clinch his sixth straight berth. The judge had walked three times and hit once before coming to the plate with a 4-4 tie in the ninth inning. He drove a fast ball from Matt Barnes to the right of center. The ball left the bat at 113 mph, and fans waited in anticipation as the judge sprinted toward first base. But they groaned in unison when Kiké Hernández made the hunt one step ahead of the fence. Meanwhile, Velez beat the Braves 1-0. The New York Mets were parked last night. They start the series in Auckland tonight at 9:40.

NHL

The Czech Foreign Ministry has informed the National Hockey Federation that Russian players are not welcome in the season-opening matches due to the invasion of Ukraine. The Nashville Predators and San Jose Sharks are scheduled to play regular season games October 7 and 8 in Prague. Each team has only one Russian player who is expected to be on the list. The NHL returns to Europe for its first game outside North America since the start of the pandemic. NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said the league is not concerned about Russian players traveling to matches or getting dressed to play.

The Americans have the strongest team and have looked to the role in the Presidents Cup. Zander Shaveli and Patrick Cantlay improved to 5-0 in the quartet. They won the opening match and set the tone. Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth won the next match, and the Americans were on their way. They ended up with a 4-1 lead over an outnumbered international team. The only point of visitors came from Se Woo Kim and Cameron Davis. Max Homa and Tony Fino won the last hole in the final to add to the American lead at Coil Hollow.

world Cup

Jovana Nojic scored 13 points to lead the five double-digit players in Serbia’s 69-64 victory over Japan at the Women’s Basketball World Cup. Yvonne Anderson and Kristina Topozovic each added 12 points for Serbia (1-1), which used 24-9 in the first quarter to take an early lead over the silver medalist at the Tokyo Olympics. In other matches, the United States defeated Puerto Rico 106-42. China defeated Bosnia and Herzegovina 98-51 and Belgium defeated South Korea 84-61. Canada faced France and Australia played with Mali later.

Tennis

Roger Federer said he was keeping an eye on everyone’s side when Serena Williams played what was expected to be her last match three weeks ago at the US Open. He wasn’t surprised by her transition from her football career, just as after a recent Laver Cup game on Friday. He knows that their back-to-back exit after nearly a quarter century in tennis will spur some fans to move on from the sport. Federer insists in an interview with The Associated Press that many will remain. This is because he believes that new stars will appear to keep people interested.
