🏈Cowboys: The Cowboys released a 2021 season hype video on Sunday. The issue? Notably absent from the video is quarterback (QB) Dak Prescott, the face of the franchise who’s also caught in the middle of tense contract negotiations. Hmm…

  • The team’s senior director of media and programming quickly tweeted out that the slight was a simple “oversight.” To which we say: Sure, Jan.
  • Dak brought out the Twitter Instagram fingers in response, following the Washington Football Team’s official page the next day. So is Prescott actually looking to join the Cowboy’s NFC East rival? Or was he simply stirring the pot? To be continued...

🏀Wings: The Wings were major winners in yesterday’s blockbuster WNBA trades. Though they gave up Katie Lou Samuelson to the Seattle Storm, the Wings acquired the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 WNBA draft, making them the first team in league history to hold the top two picks in the same draft. April can’t come soon enough.

🏀Mavericks: The Mavs overshadowed the national anthem controversy with a thrilling 118–117 win over the Atlanta Hawks last night. Luka Doncic had 28 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists, good for his 32nd (!!!) career triple double. The Mavs will look for a fourth straight win in tomorrow night’s 7:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. CT matchup with the New Orleans Pelicans.
