How Putin or Xi Could Blow It All Up for Biden

GettyJoe Biden is on a roll. His approval rating is higher than his predecessor’s ever was. Almost three-quarters of Americans think he’s doing a good job handling the COVID pandemic. Sixty percent approve of his handling of the economy.So now is the time for him to start looking at what could go wrong, and turning his attention past our borders. It’s no coincidence that the one area where Biden’s ratings lag is at our southern border, where his efforts to fix the problems his predecessor exacerbated have hit problem after problem, all of them magnified by the knowledge of desperate immigrants that Donald Trump is gone.But that’s not the only place where the world is going to come knocking and, as Biden’s predecessors know, the results are often problematic.

Julius Randle tosses chair, needs to be held back by teammates after controversial call costs Knicks vs. Nets

Julius Randle very nearly led the New York Knicks back from an 18-point deficit against their crosstown rivals, the Brooklyn Nets, but despite his 33-point effort, his team fell short due to a controversial call. With 3.2 seconds left in the game, Randle went up to attempt a game-tying 3-pointer, but because Kyrie Irving made contact with the ball, he did not release it. He was called for traveling, the Nets gained possession, and the game functionally ended there. 

Randle was not happy about this. Even after the game ended, he gave a slight shove to Nets forward Jeff Green with his shoulder. Teammate Obi Toppin needed to hold him back from going after official Scott Foster, and he proceeded to toss a chair on his way down the tunnel after exiting the floor.

Brady won their previous game, a 38-10 beatdown in Week 6 of this season, when the defense harried Rodgers all day, sacking him five times. Rodgers, who has been mostly flawless since, is unlikely to be bullied
