Ruby Rodriguez is finally home after being confined at a hospital due to stomach pain.

The “Eat Bulaga!” TV host had stayed at a hospital in Manila for about a week.

“Finally out of the hospital! Still need 2 weeks of meds but feeling so much better,” she said on Instagram yesterday, May 26. “All procedures [OK emoji], hope nothing comes bad with biopsy.”

She also shared the touching welcome-home gift from her teen son Don AJ: colored illustrations on paper that said “Welcome home” and “I miss you Mama.”

“Coming home to this posted on my bedroom door made me think 1000x on getting better,” she said. “Love you Aj you really know how to make me [cry and smile] at the same time!!”

Rodriguez said last May 20 that she was being treated with antibiotics via intravenous (IV) drip after she was rushed to the hospital for pain in her stomach.

Despite her condition, she shared the brighter side of her hospital stay—particularly getting a view of Manila’s sunset and skyline.  /ra

Elliott ends Busch’s win streak, collects $100K bounty

CONCORD, N.C. — Chase Elliott gained a measure of revenge against Kyle Busch on Tuesday night — and then let him know about.

Elliott snapped Busch’s seven-race Truck Series winning streak and collected a $100,000 bounty at Charlotte Motor Speedway before imitating Busch’s victory celebration after the race by bowing to the camera.

“Hopefully nobody gets their feelings hurt over it,” Elliott chuckled.

Busch appeared noticeably upset after the race, but it had nothing to do with the bow.

He cursed in an interview with Fox after the race.

The interview wasn’t aired live, but Busch said “it sucks when you start the race with broken pieces after you’ve been sitting for six months. There’s going to be some (expletive) talking when I get home.”

Busch was upset over a splitter problem that caused problems for his No. 51 Toyota all night long.

Later, on a Zoom call, he was informed about Elliott’s bow.

“Imitation is the strongest form of flattery or whatever it is. But, hmmm, that’s cute,” Busch said sarcastically.

“It was a spur of the moment thing,” Elliott said. “I thought we had so much fun with this with Kevin (Harvick) putting up the money and Kyle was a good sport. It’s not a dig at anybody. It’s just having fun. It was about beating him and we did and had some fun with it.”

Harvick pledged before the race to donate $50,000 to Covid-19 relief for any full-time Cup driver who finished ahead of Busch. Marcus Lemonis, the CEO of Gander RV & Outdoors, which sponsors the Truck Series, agreed to match Harvick’s pledge, bringing the total to $100,000 for pandemic relief. John Hunter Nemechek and Brennan Poole were the three full-time Cup drivers eligible to collect the bounty.

The win comes six days after Busch

NBA 2K League This Week: How ‘Timelycook’ joined Raptors Uprising

Entering Week 4 of the NBA 2K League season, one team reigns above all others: Raptors Uprising GC.

Looking down at the rest of the league with a perfect 6-0 record, the Uprising have found a formula of success that simply can’t be beat for now.

Hot on their tails has been Warriors Gaming Squad, who is also perfect so far, but has played only five matches.

Both of these powerhouse squads are on a bye this week, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to discuss.

Here’s a quick look back at the week that was — and what’s ahead in the 2K League.


You can check out the NBA 2K League every Tuesday evening at 7:00 p.m. ET on Sportsnet ONE and Sportsnet NOW.


Uprising update

As mentioned off the top, the Uprising once again enjoyed a perfect week of competition, this time beating Knicks Gaming and Hawks Talon GC, both in 2-0 match sweeps.

For the second time this season, Uprising star Kenneth “Kenny Got Work” Hailey was named player of the week for his stellar performance. He averaged 34.3 points, 6.5 assists and 3.5 steals in the four games the Uprising played.

So far this season, Hailey has performed at an MVP level, and the comfort level he’s found can be largely attributed to the chemistry the Uprising inherently has built into it.

In particular, the acquisition of Trent “Timelycook” Donald in the first round of this year’s draft has really helped unlock Hailey’s full potential.

“Me and Kenny’s experience with each other has been wonderful and I’ve been playing with him for five, six years,” Donald said over the phone. “So it’s like chemistry as in Shaq-Kobe, LeBron-Wade, Jordan-Scottie Pippen. We just know each other on and off the court.”

Donald and Hailey have
