🏒Capitals: Another year, another first-round exit. The Capitals were eliminated from the playoffs with yesterday’s Game 5 loss to the Boston Bruins. And the Caps’ window for another Stanley Cup is rapidly closing: captain Alex Ovechkin (who for next year yet), winger TJ Oshie and center Nicklas Bäckström aren’t getting any younger. Time’s a-ticking.
🏀Mystics: The Mystics won their first game of the season on Friday, trouncing the New York Liberty by 29 points (!!!) in . But the ’Stics couldn’t carry that momentum into Sunday, falling to the previously winless Indiana Fever. Sigh.
⚾️Nationals: Pitcher Stephen Strasburg returned from the injured list to throw on Friday, first baseman Ryan Zimmerman became the on Saturday and the Nats swept the Baltimore Orioles yesterday? There’s that Natitude.
⚽️Spirit: The Spirit’s home opener on Wednesday is no more. The match against the Houston Dash was originally scheduled to take place at Segra Field but has been moved to Texas.
