1. If you do one thing today, take 94 seconds and watch the emotional speech that Tony Reali gave yesterday on recently losing a child. It's raw and hard to get through, but it's unbelievably important for many reasons.

The Around the Horn host was expecting twins earlier this month. Moments before childbirth, one of the babies, his son Amadeo, passed. Reali appeared briefly on Around the Horn on Monday to share his feelings on humanity and grieving and what's going on in this country.

Reali had shared the story of what he was going through via Twitter a day earlier -- Father's Day.
