⛳️LPGA: While Americans Mina Harigae and world No. 1 Nelly Korda finished third and fifth, respectively, at the CME Group Tour Championship, yesterday was all about South Korea’s Jin Young Ko, who won her second straight season finale title, securing the $1.5 million first-place purse and LPGA Player of the Year honors.

🏒Hockey: After two straight rivalry losses to Canada, Team USA bounced back yesterday, winning 3–2 in overtime. Pal of The GIST of It podcast Hilary Knight scored twice, giving the U.S. a chance to even the My Why Tour series, tomorrow at 7 p.m. ET. Nothing we do better than revenge.

⚽️MLS playoffs: Single-elimination postseason play kicked off on Saturday and has been all chalk (aka as expected) so far. Round one continues tomorrow with No. 3 Nashville SC vs. No. 6 Orlando City SC at 8 p.m. ET followed by the No. 2 Seattle Sounders FC vs. No. 7 Real Salt Lake at 10:30 p.m. ET.

🏎F1: The F1 season is going to come down to the wire, with Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton notching another dominant win in Qatar yesterday. Following last week’s win in Brazil, Hamilton is now just eight points behind Red Bull’s Max Verstappen in the overall standings with two races to go. The drama.

⛳️LPGA: As if Sundays weren’t scary enough, yesterday’s LPGA Pelican Women's Championship went to a four-player playoff. American and World No. 1 Nelly Korda birdied the first playoff hole to claim her fourth LPGA title win of the season. What a year.

🏎️F1: Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton kept his repeat world champion title hopes alive thanks to a thrilling win during yesterday’s São Paulo Grand Prix. Three races remain and Hamilton is trailing his archrival, Red Bull’s Max Verstappen, by just 14 points. Couldn’t write a better ending.

⚽️Soccer: Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) Féminine forward Aminata Diallo is speaking out following a disturbing attack on her PSG teammate Kheira Hamraoui (pronounced AHM-row-wee) last week. ICYMI: Diallo was arrested in connection with the attack but was later released from police custody without charge.

🏁Racing: Everything’s bigger in Texas, including Jamie Chadwick’s margin of victory. The Brit claimed her second consecutive W Series title with a dominant first-place finish at the Circuit of the Americas this weekend.

  • Then yesterday, Red Bull’s Max Verstappen held off Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton to finish first at the U.S. Grand Prix, reclaim the top spot in the F1 standings and add another chapter to the “stupid” rivalry in the process.

⛳️LPGA: The tide was high, but South Korea’s Jin Young Ko held on to win the BMW Ladies Championship yesterday, with a playoff hole victory over compatriot Hee Jeong Lim. With the win, Ko is expected to overtake American Nelly Korda and become the new world No. 1.

🎓🏈College: Five ranked teams lost in Week 8, bringing some movement in the new AP Top 25 poll. The wildest game of the week? Unranked Illinois’ nine overtime (not a typo!) 20–18 win over previously ranked No. 7 Penn State. We’re tired just thinking about it.

🏒Hockey: In the first of nine USA vs. Canada tuneup games leading up to the Beijing Olympics, Team USA women’s hockey lost 3–1 to Canada on Friday. Fortunately, the squad’s back in action tonight at 7 p.m. ET. Sounds like redemption to us.

🏎F1: Yesterday, Lewis Hamilton became the first-ever F1 driver to win 100 races, following a dramatic ending to the Russian Grand Prix. After race leader Lando Norris spun out with a few laps to go, Hamilton sailed to his fifth win of the season, nearly a minute ahead of his biggest rival and runner up, Max Verstappen.

🎓🏈College football: Hey Google, play “I’m Upset” by Drake. Four previously ranked teams lost to formerly unranked opponents during college football Week 4. Most notably, previous No. 9 Clemson lost 27–21 to previously unranked NC State, prompting the Tigers to fall out of the top 10 in the AP Top 25 poll for the first time in 97 (!!!) weeks.

⛳️Golf: Okay Google, now play “Life is Good” by Drake and Future, because Team USA won the Ryder Cup. In front of a home crowd in Wisconsin, the Americans cruised to a 19–9 win — the biggest margin of victory since 1979 — over Europe. The win was so special, even arch nemeses Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau hugged it out. U–S–A!

🏎F1: Yesterday’s Italian Grand Prix (GP) was a trip. The Lewis Hamilton–Max Verstappen rivalry finally came to a head yesterday when Verstappen caused a crash that took them both out of the race (don’t worry, he was penalized), before Drive to Survive sweetheart Daniel Ricciardo won his first GP since 2018 and celebrated with a traditional Aussie shoey. Crikey.

🏈College football: Thanks to a huge upset win over the Ohio State Buckeyes on Saturday, the Oregon Ducks flew up to No. 4 on the AP Top 25 College Football poll. At the same time, BYU moved up to No. 23 after beating rivals Utah for the first time since 2009. 

  • But the real winner? The cat who fell from the upper deck at the Miami game and was caught safely in an American flag. Nine lives still intact.

🏀WNBA: The Seattle Storm will have to finish the regular season (all seven days of it) without their best player. Breanna Stewart suffered a foot injury last week and will be reassessed prior to the playoffs (which are set to begin on September 23rd). Rest up, champ!
