TUESDAY’S BROADCAST HIGHLIGHTS:
MLB: Giants at Red Sox, 7:10 p.m. (NESN)

AROUND THE WEB:

-- The Dolphins are off to a brutal start to the season, to say the least. 

After getting blown out by the Ravens in Week 1 and then shut out by the Patriots on Sunday, someone made some parody edits to the team’s Wikipedia page. 

The team is identified as a “a middle school American football team” and the page says the team is “seeking a league change that would allow them to move the franchise to Ottawa, Canada and participate in the CFL (Canadian Football League).”

The changes have since been reversed. 

Someone also did this with Brian Flores’ page after the team’s first blowout loss. 

-- Colin Kaepernick is now an Emmy-winner.

Nike’s controversial “Dream Crazy” commercial starring the former NFL quarterback won the award for outstanding commercial at the 2019 Creative Arts Emmy Awards.

The ad premiered during the 2018 NFL season and features Kaepernick telling the audience to “believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”

This commercial beat out ads for Netflix and Apple to win the award.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Yeah, we are working on the Jets now. I’ve already addressed that. I’m not getting into any of that.” -- Bill Belichick, to OMF, on how the Patriots are handling the Antonio Brown situation
