Nov. 3: Three Big Things


Mikele Colasurdo gives us the story of the weekend

In August, freshman quarterback Mikele Colasurdo announced he would opt out of this college football season following his myocarditis diagnosis. A month later, he received news that doctors cleared him for football activities. 

Fast forward to Saturday, and it happened: With the Panthers down 51-0 and nothing to lose, Shawn Eliott called Colasurdo’s name. He only threw two passes, both incompletions, but the road to get there was nothing short of a life-changing experience for him.


Atlanta Hawks large voting turnout expected 

With 300 polling machines and many eager to vote, State Farm Arena welcomed 20,000 people during the first day of early voting for the 2020 presidential election. The home of the Hawks has not seen this many people since the last game of the Hawks season on March 11. With most voters taking no more than 15 minutes out of their day to vote at the arena, many more expect to wait in line today.


The Dodgers win it all for the first time since 1988

A week ago today, the Los Angeles Dodgers closed out the Tampa Bay Rays in game six to capture their first World Series in 42 years. Behind brilliant performances from World Series Most Valuable Player Corey Seager, Mookie Betts and Clayton Kershaw, the team finally got over a hump after appearing in the 2017 and 2018 Fall Classic. 

However, the controversy came after the game when slugger Justin Turner reportedly tested positive for COVID-19, was pulled in the eighth inning and still celebrated without a mask after the game.
