Mary Carillo mocks Ryan Lochte on NBC during Rio Olympics closing ceremony
During the Olympics’ closing ceremony on Sunday, NBC’s Mary Carillo was talking about one of the great American stories to come out of the Olympics in Simone Biles, and mocked one of the worst American stories to come out of the Olympics, Ryan Lochte.

Duane Kuiper calls Denard Span’s awesome catch in the ninth inning to keep Matt Moore’s no-hitter intact
Yes, Matt Moore would lose his no-hitter after a Corey Seager bloop single with two outs in the ninth, but that doesn’t take away from how terrific this Denard Span catch was to keep the no-hitter alive.

Ed Werder has had enough of ‘NFL Insiders’!
Last but certainly not least, this gem found by our friend @cjzero, in which ESPN’s Ed Werder is on the phone and walks off the NFL Insiders set during the live show:
