In The Loop: How Filip Forsberg is staying busy, Daniel Jones' new backup

First up in our look around the sports world, former Washington Capital and Predators star Filip Forsberg recently shared how hes been staying busy during this down time. He says in this video posted on Instagram that since hockey’s coming back, he has to wear his gear to get used to it again - very clever! Can't wait for the season to restart. 

Next up, we all remember Rams' defensive tackle Aaron Donald’s insane knife workout and, well, he inspired 49ers rookie defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw to do his own version. I'm not sure about you, but all of a sudden my anxiety is through the roof!

Lastly, we all knew that Giants running back Saquon Barkley has ridiculous legs on him, but nobody ever talks about his arms. QB Daniel Jones may have a solid backup here!

Former Astros RP Will Harris dons ‘District of Champions’ T-shirt for Nationals press conference

Former Astros RP Will Harris dons ‘District of Champions’ T-shirt for Nationals press conference

Will Harris may have been the pitcher who served up Howie Kendrick’s go-ahead home run in Game 7 of last fall’s World Series, but he apparently isn’t holding any grudges about the outcome.

Harris, who spent five years with the Houston Astros before signing a three-year deal with the Nationals over the winter, sat down for a Zoom press conference Tuesday in what his first chance to speak with the media since Summer Camp began. He wore a T-shirt that was a bit surprising for a player who was on the losing end of Washington’s title run.

The shirt reads “District of Champions,” a nod to D.C. winning titles in MLB, NHL and WNBA over the last three years. To his credit, Harris hasn’t shied away from talking about his performance in Game 7.

“Look, I took the L in Game 7, that’s never gonna change,” Harris said on MLB Network in January. “But at the same time, I plan on winning my next Game 7 and I plan on winning more World Series, and I think Washington is a place I can do that.”

As if there was any doubt before, it appears that Harris has completely committed to his ballclub and D.C. as a sports town.
