🏒Islanders: Last night’s Game 6 against the Lightning was intense, physical and nerve-wracking, especially since the Bolts had a 2–0 lead late in the second period. But once Jordan Eberle got us on the board, things started rolling: Scott Mayfield scored the must-see equalizer, and Anthony Beauvillier sealed the win in overtime. Game 7, here we come.

🏀Liberty: Even though the Liberty lost 92–72 to the Chicago Sky on Tuesday, the game saw Sabrina Ionescu return to the court after missing two games, Betnijah (buh-NAW-juh) Laney continue her dominance with a team-leading 18 points, and the All-Rookie Jazmine Jones follow with 11. We’ll take it.

  • See if they can shift the momentum in the teams’ rematch tonight at 7 p.m. ET. Lets go, Libs!

⚾️MLB: The Yanks beat the Kansas City Royals 6–5 yesterday due to Luke Voit’s game-winning double, and the Mets’ 7–3 win against the Atlanta Braves saw a strong major league debut by pitcher Tylor Megill. Love to see it.

⚽️Gotham FC: Two of our own, Carli Lloyld and goalkeeper Kailen Sheridan, are headed to the Olympics. Lloyd will make her fourth appearance for Team USA, while Sheridan will represent Team Canada for the first time after being selected as an alternate in 2016. Hard work paying off.
