With remote back-to-school, child care challenges — for providers and families — emerge Ground beef recall 2020: JBS Food Canada recalls more than 38,000 pounds of meat JJ Watt impressed by wife Kealia Ohai’s homemade pasta-making skills

JJ Watt’s wife is an impressive soccer player, and now we know she has another emerging skill.

Watt tweeted a video on Saturday of the setup in his kitchen that showed his wife Kealia Ohai making pasta. The funny part was how she had the homemade noodles dangling all over the kitchen.

Finished up my zoom meetings for the night and walked out of my office straight into Italy apparently @KealiaOhai with the homemade pasta hanging all over the kitchen. Love to see it!

— JJ Watt (@JJWatt) August 2, 2020

That meal probably turned out to be delicious.

Ohai and Watt got engaged in May last year and were married in February. Ohai, who plays pro soccer for the Chicago Red Stars of the NWSL, recently made a fitting change to her jersey. She also looks like quite the budding chef.

Watt is preparing for the upcoming NFL season, which will mark his 10th with the Houston Texans.

Full screen 1/31 SLIDES © Carmen Mandato/Getty Images The 30 best NFL players in their 30s Football is a game mostly dominated by young players in their 20s, but many of the top players in the league are notable exceptions. Here's a look at the 30 best NFL players in their 30s heading into the 2020 season. 2/31 SLIDES © Steve Mitchell / USA Today Sports Images Calais Campbell, DE, Ravens Campbell is one of the rare defensive linemen who has aged like a fine wine. He will be 34 before Week 1, and the new Raven has made three consecutive Pro Bowls, including two double-digit sack seasons in Jacksonville. 3/31 SLIDES © Kirby Lee / USA Today Sports Images Kirk Cousins, QB, Vikings Cousins is a strong second-tier quarterback in the NFL, and his play has improved since moving from Washington to Minnesota. He had arguably his best season in 2019, making his second Pro Bowl while posting a 26/6 TD/INT ratio and winning a huge playoff game at New Orleans. 4/31 SLIDES © Kim Klement / USA Today Sports Images Lavonte David, LB, Buccaneers At age 30, David's play hasn't dropped off yet. The do-everything linebacker has only one Pro Bowl to his name, but he's recorded over 100 tackles in all but one of his eight NFL seasons. Slideshow continues on the next slide 5/31 SLIDES © Chuck Cook / USA Today Sports Images Demario Davis, LB, Saints It's no coincidence that the Saints run defense improved markedly after Davis was added in 2018. He's posted over 100 tackles in consecutive seasons and was an All-Pro at age 30 last year, with 111 tackles, four sacks and 12 passes defensed. 6/31 SLIDES © Kareem Elgazzar / USA Today Sports Images Carlos Dunlap, DE, Bengals Dunlap has been one of the more overlooked defensive linemen in the league for much of his 10-year career in Cincy. He has 81.5 career sacks, including nine sacks along with 63 tackles last season. 7/31 SLIDES © Kareem Elgazzar / USA Today Sports Images A.J. Green, WR, Bengals Injuries have hindered Green over the last two seasons, but the Bengals are hopeful he can bounce back at age 32 this season. He surpassed 1,000 yards receiving in six of his first seven seasons. 8/31 SLIDES © Greg M. Cooper / USA Today Sports Images Rob Gronkowski, TE, Buccaneers Gronk is set to come out of retirement to join the Bucs in 2020. He was arguably football's best tight end prior to retiring, with four All-Pro designations in nine seasons as a great receiver and elite blocker. 9/31 SLIDES © Mike Dinovo / USA Today Sports Images Casey Hayward, CB, Chargers Hayward has become one of the game's most consistent cornerbacks since joining the Chargers in 2016. He's made two Pro Bowls in four years and had a solid 2019 season at age 30. Slideshow continues on the next slide 10/31 SLIDES © Jake Roth / USA Today Sports Images Cameron Heyward, DL, Steelers Heyward has been an overpowering defensive lineman for most of his career and has played his best football recently. He's on a streak of three consecutive Pro Bowls and has been an All-Pro in two of the last three seasons with a combined 29 sacks over that time. Heyward is entering his age 31 season. 11/31 SLIDES © Douglas DeFelice / USA Today Sports Images Mark Ingram, RB, Ravens Ingram made his third Pro Bowl in his first season with Baltimore, rushing for 1,018 yards and 10 touchdowns in 15 games for the league's top rushing offense. He has three 1,000 yard seasons over the last four years as he enters his age 31 season. 12/31 SLIDES © Jake Roth / USA Today Sports Images Melvin Ingram, DE, Chargers Ingram has now made three consecutive Pro Bowls as he embarks on his age 31 season. Over eight seasons with the Chargers, Ingram has 49 sacks, including 24.5 sacks over the last three years. 13/31 SLIDES © Eric Hartline / USA Today Sports Images Lane Johnson, RT, Eagles Johnson is one of the league's most athletic and dominant offensive linemen, with three consecutive Pro Bowl appearances. He's entering his age 30 season. 14/31 SLIDES © Mark J. Rebilas / USA Today Sports Images Chandler Jones, DE, Cardinals Jones, who turned 30 in the offseason, has been an All-Pro in two of the last three seasons and has double-digit sacks in six of the last seven years. He recorded 19 sacks last year. Slideshow continues on the next slide 15/31 SLIDES © Kyle Terada / USA Today Sports Images Julio Jones, WR, Falcons Jones needs little introduction as one of the most explosive wideouts in the NFL. The 31-year-old has made six consecutive Pro Bowls and finished last season with 99 catches for 1,394 yards and six touchdowns. 16/31 SLIDES © Brett Davis / USA Today Sports Images Cameron Jordan, DE, Saints Jordan was one of the Saints' most popular players, establishing quite a track record in nine seasons. He's made three consecutive Pro Bowls, finishing last season with a career-high 15.5 sacks at age 30. 17/31 SLIDES © Eric Hartline / USA Today Sports Images Jason Kelce, OC, Eagles Kelce's brother, Travis, gets most of the attention in this prodigious football family, but Jason could have a better Hall of Fame case at the moment. He's been an All-Pro in three consecutive seasons and has three Pro Bowls to his name over nine seasons in Philadelphia. 18/31 SLIDES © Kyle Terada / USA Today Sports Images Travis Kelce, TE, Chiefs The gregarious Kelce has established himself as one of the elite tight ends in football over seven seasons. He's made five Pro Bowls and been an All-Pro twice, with four consecutive 1,000 yard seasons. 19/31 SLIDES © Ron Chenoy / USA Today Sports Images Von Miller, OLB, Broncos Miller is one of the first pass rushers NFL fans think of because of his longevity and consistency, with eight Pro Bowls in nine seasons. He's hoping to rebound from a down age 30 season, when he recorded eight sacks in 15 games. 20/31 SLIDES © Mark J. Rebilas / USA Today Sports Images Patrick Peterson, CB, Cardinals Peterson is coming off the worst year of his career at age 29, but hopes the transition to his 30s holds a brighter future. He made the Pro Bowl in his first eight seasons as a lockdown cornerback who also contributed as a returner. 21/31 SLIDES © Tim Fuller / USA Today Sports Images Aaron Rodgers, QB, Packers Entering his age 37 season, Rodgers is still going strong in Green Bay. His accomplished career includes two MVPs, one Super Bowl and eight Pro Bowls. Rodgers had 4,002 yards passing and 26 touchdowns last year. 22/31 SLIDES © Philip G. Pavely / USA Today Sports Images Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Steelers The Steelers are relying on Big Ben to rebound after missing most of 2019 to an elbow injury. He led the league in passing during 2018 and has made six Pro Bowls. Roethlisberger is entering his age 38 season. 23/31 SLIDES © Chuck Cook / USA Today Sports Images Matt Ryan, QB, Falcons Ryan was the 2016 NFL MVP and has been a consistent producer over 12 seasons. He finished last year with 4,466 yards passing and 26 touchdowns at age 34. 24/31 SLIDES © Reinhold Matay / USA Today Sports Images Mitchell Schwartz, RT, Chiefs Somehow Schwartz has never made a Pro Bowl in his eight NFL seasons, but he still deserves attention as one of the elite offensive linemen in football. The right tackle has never missed a start in his career and was an All-Pro in 2018. 25/31 SLIDES © Robert Hanashiro / USA Today Sports Images Richard Sherman, CB, 49ers Sherman reestablished himself as an elite cornerback for the 49ers last year, making his fifth career Pro Bowl. He also appeared in his third Super Bowl. 26/31 SLIDES © Derick Hingle / USA Today Sports Images Harrison Smith, S, Vikings Smith is one of the anchors of Minnesota's excellent defense, making his fifth consecutive Pro Bowl in 2019. He had 85 tackles and three interceptions in 15 games at age 30. 27/31 SLIDES © Tim Fuller / USA Today Sports Images Adam Thielen, WR, Vikings Thielen is hoping to rebound in 2019 after he suffered through a nagging hamstring injury last year. He's made two Pro Bowls in his career and is the clear No. 1 receiver in Minnesota this year after the team traded Stefon Diggs. 28/31 SLIDES © Tommy Gilligan / USA Today Sports Images Earl Thomas, S, Ravens Thomas got back on track in his first season in Baltimore after missing most of 2018 due to a fractured leg. He made his seventh Pro Bowl in 2019. 29/31 SLIDES © Joe Nicholson / USA Today Sports Images Bobby Wagner, LB, Seahawks Wagner has been one of the constants on Seattle's defense since 2012 and has been an All-Pro in five of the last six seasons. He had a league-leading 159 tackles last year and is entering his age 30 season. 30/31 SLIDES © Troy Taormina / USA Today Sports Images J.J. Watt, DE, Texans Injuries have nagged Watt over the last few years, but he remains elite when he's on the field. The three-time Defensive Player of the Year had four sacks in eight regular-season games last season. 31/31 SLIDES © Robert Hanashiro / USA Today Sports Images Russell Wilson, QB, Seahawks Wilson continues to be one of the NFL's best quarterbacks, making his sixth Pro Bowl last year and ending on the short list of Hall of Fame candidates. He's consistently been a winner, with a career 86-41-1 regular season record and two Super Bowl appearances in eight seasons. He turns 32 in November. 31/31 SLIDES

Opinion: NCAA must embrace bubbles may be only way to save the NCAA tournament in 2021

Tyler Posey Visits His Moms Grave for Her Birthday: Life Ain’t Perfect Walmart will stay open later, joining other chains Opinion: NCAA must embrace bubbles may be only way to save the NCAA tournament in 2021

Very rarely has the NCAA been accused of being a forward-thinking, risk-taking organization that gets out ahead of problems. But give NCAA president Mark Emmert some credit this week for saying out loud what has been abundantly clear over the last few months through the slow collapse of the college football season.

If college sports are going to happen next spring — and particularly the NCAA basketball tournament — we need to start planning for bubbles.

“My staff has been working hard on it and talking to all 32 commissioners and there are ways to do this,” Emmert said during a 30-minute interview posted to the NCAA’s media platforms Thursday. “I’m completely confident we can figure this out.”

From NFL plays to college sports scores, all the top sports news you need to know every day.

The bigger immediate headline Thursday coming out of Emmert’s interview was that the NCAA’s slate of Division I fall championships would all be postponed due to COVID-19. That impacts national championships in men’s and women’s cross country, field hockey, men’s and women’s soccer, women’s volleyball, men’s water polo and Championship Subdivision football.

The practical effect of that decision falls on six Bowl Subdivision conferences — the SEC, ACC, Big 12, American, Conference USA and Sun Belt — who are continuing toward a season solely because the NCAA does not control the FBS postseason. 

There was no real surprise in the NCAA’s decision. All of those fall sports were already below 50% in terms of participation for the fall semester, which means you couldn’t legitimately crown a national champion anyway. It’s unclear at this point whether the other leagues might try to band together tournaments for the other sports. Also unclear is whether any of them will actually make it to kickoff.

LOOKING AHEAD: How could spring college football work for leagues shut down

TRANSPARENCY NEEDED: College football programs must drop veil of secrecy

Through the last several weeks, though, coaches and administrators across college basketball have been watching the dysfunction around football and saying the same thing to each other: We cannot let this happen to us. 

Last March, just as conference tournaments were starting up, the NCAA made the difficult but necessary decision to call off its basketball tournament as the pandemic began to spread throughout the country. The financial impact of that decision was enormous as the NCAA collected only about $270 million in event cancellation insurance rather than the more than $1 billion television payout it would normally get. 

Losing that revenue for one year is bad enough, but the consequences of a second missed tournament would be almost too catastrophic to even try to characterize.

“Dan Gavitt has been telling us they have to play the tournament,” said one Power Five coach, referring to the NCAA’s vice president of men’s basketball and speaking on the condition of anonymity to protect conversations that were supposed to be private. 

But everyone involved in the sport sees the data. There’s absolutely no guarantee that conditions in the country will be significantly different during the window of the college basketball season, and banking on a relatively normal set of circumstances several months from now was football’s critical mistake.

So naturally, based on the success of the NBA, MLS and others, the thinking has turned to the possibility of building bubbles. Would it be as elaborate as the NBA’s? No, of course not. 

But imagine a scenario where, for example, the ACC brings all of its teams to Greensboro for the month of January with the same type of stringent testing and standard quarantining you’d need to ensure everyone involved is negative. Over three weeks, every team would play nine or 10 games. Then perhaps they’d go back to campus for a bit and come back or go to another site to finish the schedule. The same kind of thing could be replicated in smaller increments for non-conference, round robin type tournaments with five or six teams.

“We’ve discussed something like that as a league,” another Power Five coach said. 

And then in the NCAA tournament, not just for basketball but for other leagues, Emmert said you could end up with everything being played at a single site rather than having players travel all over the country as they typically would for three straight weeks during March Madness. 

"I think it’s perfectly viable in many sports,” Emmert said. “It’s harder in FCS football for example but (maybe) if you had smaller brackets. Starting with 64 teams is tough. Having 32 teams may be a manageable number, but you have to figure out those logistics. There’s doubtlessly ways to make that work.

“Joni Comstock, our senior VP for championships and Danny Gavitt who oversees basketball, they’re working on it really, really hard right now. They’re working on it with the oversight committee and championship committees, how you can manage the economics of it. It’s obviously expensive to do that, but we’re not going to hold in a championship in a way that puts students at risk. If the bubble model is the only way to do it, we’ll figure that out.”

The NCAA’s official embrace of the bubble concept is the green light for college basketball, in particular, to start thinking outside the box and inside the bubble. And frankly, it may be necessary to have any semblance of a real season. 

Months ago, when sports leagues were first coming to grips with the impact of the pandemic, there were bubble skeptics. I was one of them, but it’s clear now that if they’re done well, they have a real chance of working. 

There were also skeptics within the college community over the idea that college athletes could not be sequestered from the regular student body because it would look more like professional sports than amateurism. 

But the situation has become so desperate, college sports is prepared to deal with that problem another day and instead focus on the one right in front of them. If we knew back in April what we know now, there’s little doubt that college football officials would have been working on a plan to build a de facto bubble on campus around these teams so that a season could more easily take place. 

As ESPN analyst and NCAA critic Jay Bilas tweeted: “We need to drop the amateur distinction. It’s pro. Bubbles are not only okay, they’re necessary.” 

Even if school presidents or conferences harbor concerns over the line between amateurism and professional, embracing the bubble will be pretty easy to justify. We know athletes want to play, and we know they want to be protected. The fact that classes are going to be largely if not exclusively virtual for this school year means a lot of their academic time will be spent in front of a computer no matter what. Who cares whether that’s in a dorm room or a hotel in Indianapolis?

The good news for the near-term future of sports is that the NCAA realizes what it has to do, and schools can now go ahead and start planning for the spring and a real college basketball season. The bubble has been blessed by Emmert, so let’s not waste any more time making it happen.
