🏈Bears: Nobody likes a sore loser, but Bears quarterbacks Andy Dalton and Justin Fields were likely both sore after they were sacked four times in Chicago’s brutal 41–15 preseason loss to the Buffalo Bills on Saturday. Da Bears were missing injured starters, and it showed: that O-line still needs some help.

⚾️White Sox: The White Sox lost 9–0 to the Tampa Bay Rays yesterday, which also gave the Rays the 2-1 series win. The Rays pitchers dominated while the Sox relievers struggled, and all-in-all it was a tough day for the South Siders. Womp.

  • Both teams are favorites to win their divisions, meaning they’ll likely end up squaring off in the American League Championship. And while our hearts are with the Sox fans, this Rays team is going to be very hard to beat. Blame Tom Brady.

⚽️Red Stars: This weekend, the Red Stars closed out the inaugural Women’s Cup, a mini-tournament in which Chicago and Racing Louisville faced international teams Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) Féminine and FC Bayern Munich, with the Red Stars losing 1–0 to PSG in Saturday’s third-place match. 

While international play brings exposure to the club and the NWSL, the additional games added to Chicago’s already tough schedule have caused concerns that the club is asking too much of its players. Sigh.
