SALT LAKE CITY — Today's From Left Field features a check-in on one of our previous stories, an NFL player selling Skittles on live TV, and an inexplicable banana suit. Sports are glorious.
1. A re-do on Brady
Jane Rosenberg's been made famous by her, well, quirky depiction of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's face in a courtroom sketch three weeks ago.

Since then, though, she's been practicing drawing Brady at her studio, and it's pretty good!

Except then Brady was in court again yesterday, and given her usual time limitation of the court, Rosenberg still struggled. Not as bad, no, but still not brilliant. His arms are different sizes, and his face still, well, doesn't look like Brady.
And here's Jane Rosenberg's sketch of Tom Brady from today's hearing. "It was a nightmare." pic.twitter.com/o53cEV4rUL — Stephen Brown (@PPVSRB) August 31, 2015
Since it'd be logical for both parties to wrap up this suit before the season begins, Rosenberg may not have time to relive her nightmare again.
2. Marshawn Lynch is selling Skittles on a home shopping network
It's not clear at all how or why this happened, but this is a great video featuring Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch selling actual Skittles on an actual home shopping network, eVine.
My personal favorite moments:
- Marshawn Lynch saying "We done became one!" right before eating a Skittle.
- When they bring out the tailgate dip tray full of only Skittles.
- Marshawn Lynch gets a Skittle ring!
3. Dodgers player wears a banana suit in the dugout
Enrique Hernandez may be injured, on the 15-day disabled list due to a hamstring injury, but that doesn't mean he can't sit in the dugout in a banana suit anyway. Wait, what?
Apparently, the banana suit is not just any banana suit, but is instead a "Rally Banana" suit, which makes this entirely different. And it actually worked! The Dodgers ended up winning the game in the 14th inning, the same inning Hernandez wore the Rally Banana. This will become a recurring thing, I sense.
4. Soccer juggling skills
This woman, Indi Cowie, says that she's the first female in history to pull off a three-revolution juggling trick, which I completely believe, because that looks monstrously difficult:

Whenever I try to do one of these (and by that, I mean a single revolution juggle, because I live in the world of mortals), I'm always quickly aware that knees aren't supposed to move side to side like that. Cowie's knees are apparently redefining kneedom.
