Keep the conversation flowing, 

The Last Night's Game Team   


COLLEGE BASEBALL WORLD SERIES

What to say to a newly engaged friend…The boys of college baseball love diamonds too. Oregon State defeated Mississippi State (and their rally banana) to reach the College World Series championship games. They'll face an Arkansas team that ousted the defending champions from Florida to reach their first finals in 39 years. (They’ve never won a College World Series title). The best-of-three championship series starts Monday. SCHEDULE

 

OVERTIME

Saudi Arabia was the only country in the world that prevented women from driving, until this weekend. Celebrating her country’s decision to overturn the law, Aseel Al-Hamad, the first female member of Saudi Arabian Motorsport Federation, took the wheel and fulfilled her dream to drive an F1 (Formula One) car before the French Grand Prix race yesterday. (F1 driver Lewis Hamilton took home the race’s checkered flag). FEEL THE POWER

 

SIDELINE STAT

We’re almost halfway through the World Cup and the teams will wrap up group play this week. Most of the teams that were favored are still in it, but there are plenty of teams who have already packed their bags, knowing they won’t advance to the next round. Could Lionel Messi and his Argentinian team be one of them? WHO’S IN AND WHO’S OUT?

 

COACHES’ CORNER

The empty feeling of being ditched by your ride is all too familiar to the San Diego Padres (MLB – Major League Baseball). Their team bus failed to show up to take them to play the San Francisco Giants. Thinking fast, their director of player and staff services flagged down an empty double-decker tour bus, negotiated a rate and then the team was on their way to the stadium in style, taking in the sights along the way.

WHAT TO WATCH

The ESPN Body Issue is out today featuring athletes in the nude (with their important bits strategically covered of course). PICS…Also, the NBA (National Basketball Association) Awards are tonight where the MVP and the highly contested battle for Rookie of the Year will be announced. PEOPLE ARE LOSING SLEEP OVER THIS
