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.”

“They’ve got to do better,” Baez said of the fans, adding that they’re putting more pressure on the team with their boos.

LeBron James slams league as injuries pile up in playoffs

As more and more injuries pile up throughout the playoffs — the latest coming in the form of a feared ACL injury for Kawhi Leonard — LeBron James sounded off on the league’s condensed schedule this season on Twitter on Wednesday.

James said that the increase in injuries players are facing aren’t just “part of the game,” but rather due to lack of rest.

As for the financial side of the argument, something that was significantly hurt last season when the NBA had to move into a bubble, James isn’t having it.
