Daily Dose: 9/12/16 Hillary Clinton’s health becomes an issue on the campaign trail

Happy Monday, folks. Hope you all got your NFL fix.

The presidential race took an odd turn Sunday. Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, at a 9/11 commemoration event, was forced to leave after a medical episode. It’s particularly awkward because Republican nominee Donald Trump had been crassly referring to her health situation as a matter of course, then something actually happened. Perhaps even more strangely, Trump was actually rather gracious about the situation when making a television appearance on FOX News afterward. He also indicated that he’ll be releasing his own medical records, too. ABC News reports.

Every couple years, people decide that they want to make a new place the it city. Scores of young people get out of college, move to a place and suddenly breweries, vinyl shops and Uber start showing up. That, or a place where people had been minding their business for years is suddenly overrun with vultures trying to make a buck. Portland, Oregon, and Nashville, Tennessee, come to mind on this list. Apparently, the latest place for growth is St. Louis, which is a bit of a shocker. FiveThirtyEight’s Ben Casselman explains.

Erin Henderson is not a household name. He’s a linebacker for the New York Jets who wasn’t exactly a big-time college player. You might remember his older brother, E.J., from his days at the University of Maryland. Anyway, Erin’s been struggling with substance abuse for some time. It’s affected his NFL career quite a bit, and nearly gotten him blackballed from the league. But, he’s back now, his life is more stable and he’s got a new contract to show for it. VICE‘s Dom Cosentino explains why he’s the best comeback story in the league.

In case you were too busy with football, don’t forget, there’s still a baseball season going on. And it happens to be David Ortiz’s last in the big leagues. He’s not just making a retirement tour, either. The Red Sox are leading the AL East and Big Papi is mashing. He kept up his hot streak Sunday in Toronto, where he mashed a serious bomb to put his team up late in the game. If you didn’t see it, click here. On a larger level, though, what he’s doing is amazing. If there was any doubt about him being a first ballot Hall of Famer, that’s gone.

Coffee Break: The sports media world is so crowded these days, that if you make something up and sound semi-believable, people might run with it as if it’s real. Such was the case for the website Coral, which typically tweets about gambling. The website made a sarcastic joke about soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, and I haven’t stopped laughing yet.

Snack Time: In case you were wondering, yes, it’s real that many people presume that black people don’t feel as much physical pain as other people. So, it should be no surprise that such a phenomenon also extends to hospitals.

Dessert: Hip-hop and wrestling are a great combo. And when Smoke DZA makes tapes about the two, it’s even better.
