A 34-year-old talk-show host just confessed to not knowing how to tell time.
1. Sports has to take a back seat for a moment, because this clip is way more important right now. One of the hosts of daytime talk show, The Real, recently confessed to not knowing how to tell time. Not only did 34-year-old Adrienne Bailon admit that she has no clue how to figure out what's going on with her watch, she actually blamed her elementary school for her shortcoming!!! The woman has been out of elementary school for 20-plus years and never once thought to herself, "Hmm, maybe I should learn this whole telling time thing?" As you watch the astonishing clip above, keep an eye on the co-host sitting next to Bailon. At one point, I thought she might reach over and just start strangling Bailon.
2. I'm still trying to figure out how Carson Wentz got a 17-yard run out of this play last night.
3. We've seen many videos of Russell Westbrook singing over the years. Now we know the Thunder star goes just as hard when he's jamming to children's songs.
4. If you cover sports for a living, there are two things you try to learn right away: 1) How to spell "Krzyzewski" and 2) Dwyane Wade spells his first name "Dwyane" instead of "Dwayne." Tom Brady is struggling with No. 2.
5. The newest episode of HBO's Real Sports, which airs tonight at 10 p.m. ET, features a segment on "The State of Legal Sports Betting." One of the people that reporter Andrea Kremer spoke to, naturally, is Brent Musburger. His performance in this teaser clip is simply outstanding.

7. A couple of people on Twitter have asked me about ESPN cancelling Barstool Van Talk. My only thought about it is that ESPN seems like they have some internal issues. President John Skipper says he cancelled the show because he didn't want to be associated with Barstool's content. So the President of the biggest sports network on earth made a deal with a company without being familiar with their content? That's just downright bizarre. I also think Barstool and Pardon My Take will be able to capitalize on this in many ways that may end up benefiting them more than being on ESPThat's really my only thought, but if you want more on this subject, my esteemed colleague and top media critic in the land, Richard Deitsch, covered it all in great detail.
8. RANDOM WRESTLING VIDEO OF THE DAY: I'm a little behind in my "Something to Wrestle With" podcasts, so I'm currently in the middle of the Jeff Jarrett episode. I had forgotten about this 1997 promo, which many people thought was a shoot (and would never get approved in this day and age). According to Bruce Prichard, the only line that wasn't scripted was Jarrett's shot at Steve Austin selling "blasphemous merchandise" toward the end of the promo, which caused Austin to never want to work with Jarrett.
