-- Robert Kraft celebrated Labor Day this weekend in the Hamptons with Martha Stewart and Oprah at a party hosted by Discovery Communications CEO David Zaslav.

Stewart posted a picture with Kraft and Oprah on her Instagram.

And Snoop Dogg was upset he was not invited to the party.

Kraft has attended this party at the Zaslav home in the past. In 2015, he chatted with U.S. District Judge Richard Berman at this event in the middle of Deflategate.

-- Nick Saban has apologized to ESPN reporter Maria Taylor for his frustrated answer to her question after Alabama’s win over Louisville Saturday night.

"Well, I still like both guys," Saban said to Taylor after the game of his starting quarterbacks Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts. "I think both guys are good players. I think both guys can help our team, all right? So why do you continually try to get me to say something that doesn't respect one of them? I'm not going to. So quit asking."

Saban called Taylor and apologized for his response shortly after.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "There had been a lot of guys getting claimed in recent years and you never know who is actually doing the actual claiming at the time unless it’s your player, so you never know that. It is different too when you’re last in order and a lot of times you would even expect to claim some players for the simple fact that you would be blocking is yourself if that happened. This was the most that I’ve ever experienced so far. We claimed numerous guys and we got one, and it was not a guy we wanted to trade for but just blocked. It was a little bit surprising." -- Dave Dombrowski, on the Red Sox not making any deals at the waiver trade deadline
