ESPN’s Sage Steele slams network’s ‘sick,’ ‘scary’ vaccine mandate, says she got the shot before deadline

ESPN‘s “SportsCenter” host Sage Steele knocked her network’s vaccine mandate, suggesting during an interview she was forced to get the shot before a Sept. 30 deadline. 

In a preview exchange from former NFL player Jay Cutler’s “Uncut” podcast, Steele was asked about the band-aid she had on her arm.

“So I got my shot today,” Sage revealed in the Wednesday episode. 

“You took it a long way,” Cutler reacted. 

“I did,” Sage laughed. “I just… I didn’t want to do it. But I work for a company that mandates it and I had until September 30 to get it done or I’m out.”

(Don’t worry, this is not one of those stories where an absent-minded father is neglecting his partner or newborn to watch DA BIG GAME.)

Clayton was born at 1:51 p.m. the new parents basked in the presence of their big boy — 10 pounds, 6 ounces! — and then mom drifted off to sleep. 


So Luiz held his newborn, and yes, he put the World Championships on his phone. The games had been canceled last year because of COVID-19, and Luiz was pumped to tune in while he passed the time
