    Women's team wins again! So CBS did a good 'USA World Cup fast facts' section on their article after the win that I think fits in this thread:

    • This is the USWNT's fourth World Cup title: 1991, 1999, 2015 and 2019
    • Megan Rapinoe is the oldest woman to score in a Women's World Cup final.
    • Along with Germany's Birgit Prinz (1995, 2003, 2007), Rapinoe is also only the second-ever player to start in three separate World Cup tournaments (2011, 2015, 2019)
    • With 26 goals, the U.S. set a record for most goals in a FIFA Women's World Cup. The previous record was 25, shared by the U.S. and Germany in 1991 and 2003, respectively.
    • USWNT head coach Jill Ellis is the first coach to win two FIFA Women's World Cup titles.
    • Ellis is only the second coach -- women's or men's -- to win consecutive World Cup titles. The other was Italy's Vittorio Pozzo in 1934 and 1938.

    Germany is the first to advance to quarter-finals. I'm thinking it'll be:

    Germany, Australia, England, France, United States, Sweden, Italy and Japan in the quater-finals.

    I find the Ravens and Bengals boring to watch. Gotten better with Lamar at QB for Baltimore, but still. Gimme NFC West all the way. Has the best potential to be most entertaining, watchable and competitive division in the whole league this year.

    Florida State's out! One step closer to Michigan continuing their awesome run.

    I really want Texas to pull away this year. But their MO for a long time is folding in the clutch. Gotta give the Sooners and Riley the edge until Texas proves more. If they can beat OK twice this year, they have my full attention. I don't see that happening.

    Do have some update with this. Auburn and Arkansas are eliminated. So just Vandy and Miss State representing SEC now. So for sure bracket 1 won't be SEC.

    6 teams remain. Only Michigan, Vanderbilt and Miss State haven't lost. So Florida State, Texas Tech and Louisville are 1 loss away from elimination.

    Sets up nicely for a Michigan/Vanderbilt final, which I agree seems the most likely.

    Lebron gets to play with another superstar once again; Anthony Davis is being traded from the Pelicans to the Lakers and suddenly the Lakers are contenders again.

    But the real story here is what they had to give up to make this happen -

    The Pelicans will send Anthony Davis to the Lakers after all. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski was first to report that New Orleans will send the 26-year-old superstar to Los Angeles in exchange for Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and three first-round picks, including the fourth overall pick in next week's Draft.

    So that's 2 starters and 3 1st round picks, including the 4th overall in the 2019 draft just around the corner... wow. I mean everyone agreed this needed to happen for the Lakers organization. And I get trading 3 good players away for one transcendent talent. But 3 first round picks.. they really must have little faith in either their ability to evaluate draft talent or they don't think anyone in this draft or the next few will be anywhere close to what AD can bring to the table.

    This will probably be a trade that really ends up seriously being very mutually beneficial. Lakers get Lebron very needed help. And the very terrible Pelicans now have 3 more good players plus 3 more top picks in the draft to try and more than replace AD.

    I was shocked to read the price tag of acquiring Anthony Davis. But have to admit the Lakers might be the favorites in the West now, with KD (likely) out of Golden State and future unsure for Klay Thomspon. Then there's just the Rockets.. Lakers will be fun to watch again, probably.

    Hope to see the Pelicans turn things around. They got the farm so to speak. Don't squander it.

    And Kawhi Leonard deservedly got the MVP. That's his 2nd finals MVP of his career (first one with the Spurs). Here's the recap of the game. Really good watch.
