Since none of us woke up this morning as the Duchess of Sussex, it looks like it’s back to the grind.

 

You're still royally sports smart,

The Last Night’s Game Team


The Race For The Triple Crown

When there’s no surprise here. Kentucky Derby winner, Justify, was the heavy favorite in Saturday’s Preakness Stakes. It wasn’t pretty but Justify easily won the sloppy, muddy race. The Preakness is the second of three races a horse has to win to achieve the Triple Crown. With two of those races in the bag, the next stop for Justify is the Belmont Stakes on June 9, where he hopes to become the next Triple Crown winner. MORE ON THE RACE

 

Overtime

Speaking of crowns, you couldn’t avoid the coverage of the royal wedding this weekend. As expected, even the sporty were invited. Tennis star Serena Williams and soccer great David Beckham, along with their spouses, looked the part donning a different kind of uniform for the royal celebration. PICS

 

Sideline stat

The first all-athlete season of Dancing With The Stars comes to a close tonight in the season finale and may the most coordinated win. The final three athletes left standing are Josh Norman, player for the Washington Redskins (NFL – National Football League) and two members of the Olympic figure skating team – Adam Rippon and Tonya Harding. We’ll find out tonight who will dance away with the famed mirrorball trophy. QUICK SEASON RECAP

 

Coaches’ corner

With “Star Wars” favorite Chewbacca sitting courtside, the Cleveland Cavaliers (NBA – National Basketball Association) embodied the power of the force when they dominated the Boston Celtics in their playoff game this weekend. Did you know that new Chewbacca is actually played by former Penn State and Finnish basketball player Joonas Suotamo? So maybe the wookie does have game? (PS – the Cavs are down 2-1 in the semifinal series against the Celtics).

 

What to watch

The Vegas Golden Knights are in! In their inaugural season the team continues to chase history, defeating the Winnipeg Jets last night to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals. They’re waiting on their opponent, the victor of the Washington Capitals and Tampa Bay Lightning series. The two teams will play tonight for a spot in the finals. SCHEDULE
