In today's Sprint:
🏀 Kyrie goes off
🃏 Stacked deck
🏈 Odd moves
Trivia: When was the last time
Gonzaga did not play in the West Coast Conference (WCC)
🃏 Seems Trevor Lawrence noticed the sports trading card boom. In a
partnership with Topps, he’s releasing 50 unique cards. The best part? His
older brother, an artist, designed
20 of them.
🏈 In a bit of a head scratcher, the Chiefs released
both Eric Fisher and Mitchell Schwartz, their two starting offensive
tackles. Both guys missed the Super Bowl, hence why Patrick Mahomes spent
the night running for his life.
⚾ The MLB will test a bunch of experimental
rules at minor league levels before considering them in the Majors.
In general, they look to speed up the game and make it more exciting.
🏀 PJ Tucker becomes the latest athlete to leave Houston. He’ll be a
healthy scratch for the Rockets until he is either traded or bought out.
🏀 Michigan State’s basketball team will be known as the ‘MSU Spartans
Presented by Rocket Mortgage.’ Let’s hope this is a one
off mistake and the rest of college basketball doesn’t jump on the
A. 1997. Not only have the Zags made it to 24
straight (!) WCC Championship games, they have won 18 of those 24.
