🏈Seahawks: Thank goodness safety Jamal Adams is well aware that mom knows best, signing a four-year, $70 million extension on Tuesday to become the NFL’s highest-paid safety. It sounds unlikely he’ll play in Saturday’s 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT preseason game against the Denver Broncos, but he’s “ready to go win some championships” and so are we. 

🏀Storm: Though Jewell Loyd balled out with 35 points last night, the Storm fell 83–79 to the NY Liberty and ex-Storm players Natasha Howard and Sami Whitcomb. That said, the loss comes with an asterisk as our defending champs were playing without Sue Bird and new mom Breanna Stewart for a second straight game.

  • The rematch is set for tomorrow night at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT. Nothing we do better than revenge.

⚾️⚽️Box scores: Seattle showed Dallas who’s boss last night. The Mariners beat the Texas Rangers 3–1 and the Sounders (still riding high from their rivalry win) defeated FC Dallas 1–0. Texas couldn’t hold ’em.
