The GIST: The Seahawks’ playoff run starts Saturday, Megan Rapinoe returns to action and there’s sun on the forecast? Blessed.
🏈Seahawks: LA Rams, we meet again. In Saturday’s wild card matchup, the Seahawks will face their division rivals for the third time this season. The ’Hawks took the W in their most recent tilt in Week 16, thanks to their defense not allowing any touchdowns.
- What’s remarkable about that feat is that Rams QB Jared Goff was healthy that game...but now, not so much. If Goff’s thumb injury prevents or limits his play, we’re feeling good about the Seahawks’ chances. Make some noise (at home), 12s!
⚽️OL Reign: She’s baaack. Superstar Megan Rapinoe, half of our fave hometown power couple, is set to return to the national stage this week with the U.S. women’s national team training camp. Raise a pinot for Pinoe, who could play in her first game in 10 months in the January 18th or 22nd matches against Colombia.
- On the club level, the Reign brought in two young talents this week. They traded forward Darian Jenkins to Utah Kansas City for forward (and activist) Tziarra King, and signed 20-year-old midfielder Angelina from Brazil. Welcome!
🏀College basketball: Unfortunately, COVID-19 continues to disrupt the college basketball season. The No. 1 Gonzaga men have changed opponents due to contact tracing protocols, and will face BYU for tonight’s 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT conference matchup.
