⚽️Soccer: While the arguments around Team USA’s basketball roster continue, the newly announced USWNT roster has been met with a little less controversy. Of course, captain Becky Sauerbrunn will lead the world’s top-ranked team, alongside Megan Rapinoe, Alex Morgan, Rose Lavelle, Sam and Kristie Mewis and goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher.

  • Top stars left off the team include Jane Campbell, Catarina Macario and Lynn Williams, but they were included as alternates. The biggest shocker? Midge Purce was left off entirely. Um, what’s up with that?

⛳️Golf: Another weekend, another major. This time, it’s the Women’s PGA Championship, the fourth of five LPGA majors. Reigning champ Sei Young Kim will be back in contention, alongside past winners Brooke Henderson (Canadian!) and Danielle Kang, and 2021 LPGA tour event winners Nelly and Jessica Korda, who are each looking for their first major. Follow along here.

🏒Hockey: The highly anticipated Game 6 between the Montreal Canadiens and Vegas Golden Knights is set for tonight at 8 p.m. ET. The Canadiens lead the series 3-2 as they look to be the first Canadian team to reach the Stanley Cup Finals in a decade.

  • Meanwhile, the reigning champ Tampa Bay Lightning are prepping for tomorrow’s Game 7 vs. the New York Islanders after the Isles won last night’s Game 6 3–2 in overtime
