Here's what everyone is talking about at the water cooler today. 

Overtime

In anticipation of Serena Williams’ return to tennis, her husband put up billboards on the highway to the site of her comeback, Indian Wells, CA. The billboards feature pictures of their daughter and call Williams the ‘Greatest Mamma of All Time – G.M.O.A.T. (In sports, it’s flattering to call someone the G.O.A.T. which stands for Greatest Of All Time).  

 

Sideline stat

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones (NFL) and the NFL are about to have a Real Housewives-style brawl. The league is insisting the team pay back more than $2 million in legal fees they incurred when Jones challenged commissioner Roger Goodell’s contract extension. Allegedly not related to said payback, Jones has opted out of the league’s contract with Ticketmaster and signed an exclusive deal with SeatGeek. The claws are about to come out.

 

Coaches’ corner

Only a handful of athletes make a big enough impact to have their jersey retired but not many have their jersey retired into the rafters of The Ellen Show. DeGeneres will permanently hang the jersey of the gold medal winning U.S. Women’s Hockey Team in her studio alongside the jersey of her favorite athlete, New Orleans Saints quarterback (NFL) Drew Brees.
