Welcome to this week’s Buzz Bulletin! Here’s the tea.
Sad Baker Mayfield Gets The Meme Treatment
Baker Mayfield did not have a great weekend, you guys.
After arriving at Mile High sporting some scruff, Baker shaved his beard into a Fu Manchu for game time. The move was inspired partly by charity (the quarterback staff is participating in Movember together), and partly by the fact that Mayfield had never suffered a loss while wearing the Hogan-esque lip decor.
However, losing 24-19 to the Broncos put a damper on Mayfield’s new look. Baker showed up to the post game presser with a shorter, bushier mustache. A mustache of shame.
“I was undefeated before Sunday with the handlebar mustache,” said Mayfield. “I shaved it off because I didn’t deserve it.”
Especially given the fact that Mayfield’s ultra-flashy GQ feature was published just a few months ago, Twitter wasn’t about to let the new look go unroasted.

The Washington Nationals Partied Like Champions
Remember when Alex Ovechkin and the Caps won the Stanley Cup and went absolutely apesh*t all over Washington, DC? This weekend, it was the Nats’ turn.
A group of players from the Nationals were in attendance at Sunday night’s Capitals game, where they carried on the celebration that had been raging since Saturday’s victory parade.
They chugged beer through their jerseys.

They drank a whole lot of beer and generally appeared to have a really great evening.
Pro athletes do just about everything with more intensity than the average Joe, and partying appears to be no exception for this group.
Worth Watching: Monday Night Football Cat
Everybody’s still talking about this fuzzy intruder who stole the show on Monday Night Football this week. I absolutely cannot get enough of Football Cat.
“We’ve gone from seeing ghosts to black cats now on Monday Night Football.”— Jori Epstein (@JoriEpstein) November 5, 2019
Didn’t expect this from Cowboys-Giants: pic.twitter.com/z3eTCFPm3t
The cat, who appeared to be supremely annoyed by the ordeal, remains at large. Apparently MetLife Stadium is home to several stray kitties who live under the bleachers, and this one just happened to scamper its way to the big time.
Live your dreams, Football Cat.
