Mike Tirico has traveled over 12,500 miles in the air over the past week and hosted two major sporting events.

And he still isn’t done.

Tirico is back at NBC Sports Group headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut, to host the final week of the Winter Olympics. He anchored primetime coverage the first five days from Beijing before flying back to the U.S. on Feb. 8. He did the Feb. 9-10 shows from NBC’s headquarters before going to Los Angeles, where he hosted the Super Bowl and three days of Olympics.

“We’ve hosted the Olympics from this lake set (outside SoFi Stadium), from the field of the Super Bowl, from China and from our studio in Connecticut all in like a week, which is just nuts,” Tirico said Sunday night after hosting the Olympic primetime show.

Sunday Funday Moment: Sarah Farms surprises El Paso boy featured on SportsCenter with free milk for a year

El Paso, Texas– One El Paso boy became a viral sensation after pulling a double play during a championship baseball game this past June.

“So when the batter hit the ball it bobbled but then I recovered it and got the batter out on first then when I saw the runner running to home I ran home and got him out,” said 8-year-old Jordan O’Hara.

It was back in June when his game-ending double play landed him in the number 1 spot on ESPN SportsCenter’s top 10 plays after his dad tweeted the video out.

The cameras that caught that viral video were a donation from local dairy farm, Sarah Farms. They were installed to help parent’s safely watch their children play baseball games during the pandemic.

“We had no idea that at the time it would be Jordan getting a double play, be on ESPN Sportscenter’s play of the

MLB World Reacts To Yankees’ Crushing Loss On Sunday

A general view of Yankee Stadium.

The New York Yankees put their fans through the ringer this weekend. What looked like a historic win for the franchise turned into an absolutely crushing loss to their hated rival, the Boston Red Sox.

In the final game of a four-game series at Fenway Park, Yankees starting pitcher Domingo German looked absolutely incredible to start. Through seven innings, he allowed just two base runners, one on a walk in the third, and another reached safely on a passed ball after striking out in the seventh.

German was in striking distance of the second no-hitter of the year for the franchise, and the first Yankees no-hitter against the Red Sox since Dave Righetti in 1983. New York finds itself well back of Boston in the AL East race this year, but a win like that seemed like a possible turning point for the team

Kevin Durant looked unstoppable in the first four minutes of the Brooklyn Nets game against the Miami Heat on Sunday afternoon, as he scored the first eight points for his team. But then he got hurt and was forced to miss the remainder of the contest with what the Nets announced as a left thigh contusion. Brooklyn went on to lose the game against the Heat, but the good news is that they won’t be without Durant for too long. 

While speaking with media members on Friday, Nets coach Steve Nash said that Durant could return to game action as soon as this weekend without committing to that as a timeline. “Yeah, I mean I think he’s close. But I don’t think he’s there. So I think we’ll see tomorrow and Sunday if that’s a possibility, but it may not (be). So it may bleed back into this
