Here's what you might have missed this weekend.
But that likely couldn't ruin the weekend for one fan. Craig here got married over the weekend and tweeted a picture with his groomsmen and a Lamar Jackson jersey and tagged the NFL's reigning MVP.

With the "Truzz," a play on the Ravens' BigTruss motto started last season by Mark Ingram II, consider this marriage blessed.
Rocking the Rams' new stadium
Los Angeles Rams players, select fans and media got to check out SoFi Stadium, the team's new home. It's impressive.

One fan got more than just a tour. Nita Strauss is a guitarist in Alice Cooper's band and a huge Rams fan. She tuned up her axe to break in the sound system at the new stadium. And, naturally, she played Queen's stadium anthem, "We Will Rock You."
Boston Red Sox great Carl Yastrzemski turned 81 years old over the weekend. Yaz won the AL MVP and Triple Crown in 1967 and made his share of spectacular catches throughout his career. His grandson, San Francisco Giants outfield Mike Yastrzemski, sent him a birthday card of sorts with this amazing catch.
Stay classy, Slam Diego
Out in Slam Diego, THREE homers for Trent Grisham. 💪 pic.twitter.com/giLmB3kNLl— MLB (@MLB) August 23, 2020
According to MLB Stats, he is the third player with a three-homer game this season and the first Padre to do it since June 2019. In Saturday's game, a 13-2 win over the Houston Astros, San Diego hit six home runs, including a grand slam from Jake Cronenworth. It was the Padres' fifth grand slam in six games.
That led Taylor Trammell, a Padres minor leaguer, to make this handy map correction.
Semper Fi at Patriots camp
New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick is a master strategist and genius when it comes to talent evaluation and roster management. So of course, on Saturday he signed a player who hasn't played football in five years and then moved him to a new position.
Here's new Patriots tight end Paul Quessenberry. He's resuming his football career after five years in the Marines. pic.twitter.com/464sgzQXOf— Zack Cox (@ZackCoxNESN) August 23, 2020
Paul Quessenberry was a defensive end at Navy before serving in the Marines and has two brothers in the NFL -- Scott Quessenberry, a lineman for the Los Angeles Chargers, and David Quessenberry, an offensive lineman for the Tennessee Titans.
Belichick, whose father coached at Navy and grew up in Annapolis, Maryland, has a connection to the academy, but don't be surprised if five other NFL teams go out and sign former military members to their rosters, thinking Belichick has found another way to outsmart the NFL.
