Good morning, everyone. These are getting out quite late this morning, my bad! Let’s give you some stuff to discuss from yesterday:
Atlanta United took an early lead, but Gabriel Pirani was able to salvage a draw for D.C. United last night. They still cling to the 9th and final playoff spot, but they need some wins ASAP.
Lionel Messi and Jordi Alba both were subbed off last night in the 1st half, with Messi’s injury being described as “muscle fatigue.” They both will miss this weekend’s game at Orlando City.
Boston’s NWSL ownership made ‘full sprint’ for its bid: An investor explains how it came together (The Athletic)
We will get the return of Boston to the NWSL in 2026, and it was announced yesterday by the league. Facilities are still a concern, but more Northeast trips for the Spirit are coming.
Tonight, the USWNT takes on South Africa in what will be Julie Ertz’s last match. She tells the media that it’s not because she can’t play, but parenthood is taking priority at this point in her life. We’re going to miss #8 in the middle.
St. Louis is in the playoffs in their first season, becoming the first in the Western Conference to clinch a place in the postseason. Last night, Orlando, Philadelphia, and Columbus also punched their ticket to the playoffs.
Jude Bellingham does it again, scoring a goal in minute 4 of second half stoppage time for Real Madrid. As a Madridista, I’m loving what Jude has done for the club in his first month there.
The leader of Saudi Arabia isn’t concerned with the rest of the world labeling his reach into sports as sportswashing. He’s just concerned about making money.
The first day of Fall is this weekend, so looking forward to hoodie season coming real soon. But for today…
Happy Earth, Wind, & Fire Day to all! Enjoy it!
