Hi!

We’ll cut to the chase — it’s been a challenging weekend in the wake of Friday’s Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Today’s newsletter will dive into how that ruling intersects with the sports world, along with some updates from the field of play. Sending love this Monday morning.

Quote of the Day

The lack of abortion does not stop people from having abortions. It stops people from having safe abortions. I would encourage people to understand all of the different aspects that overturning Roe v. Wade will have on (...) the entire country. I just can't understate how sad and how cruel this is.

— USWNT star Megan Rapinoe, following Friday’s horrific Supreme Court ruling, which essentially criminalizes abortion in roughly half of the United States. What she said.

⚖️ Roe v. Wade: How the sports world is (and isn’t) responding

The GIST: One day after celebrating the 50th anniversary of Title IX — a landmark decision for women’s rights — the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. Here’s how the sports world is (and isn’t) responding to the devastating ruling.

The response: Along with the aforementioned Rapinoe, many other athletes have spoken out against Friday’s decision. The WNBA and the NBA along with the NWSL released statements condemning the ruling, while the NFL, MLB, NHL and MLS have yet to comment. The silence is deafening.

  • Meanwhile, some companies are making statements of resistance. One example? Dick’s Sporting Goods. Their CEO Lauren Hobart announced on Friday that the company will reimburse employee travel for abortion care if they live in a restrictive state.
  • It’s no surprise that a woman-led company had such a quick and strong response, but it serves as a stark reminder that this ruling will impact everyone and that we need all voices in this fight.

Zooming out: It’s difficult to conceptualize how widespread the consequences of this ruling will be. How will teams and leagues support athletes competing in states with abortion bans? Will sporting events be withheld from states with abortion restrictions? How will this affect college and high school athletes who become pregnant and can’t easily access safe abortion services?

  • The future is uncertain and scary, but we’re all in it together. Shout it from the rooftops — reproductive rights are human rights.

🏒 Stanley Cup Final: Feelin’ mile high

The GIST: Move aside, Champa Bay. The Colorado Avalanche are officially Stanley Cup champions after beating the two-time defending champ Tampa Bay Lightning 2–1 last night to win the series in six games and bring the Cup back to the Mile High City for the first time in 21 years. All the small big things.

As it happened: Lightning captain Steven Stamkos lit up the scoreboard first, but the Avs came back with a vengeance to have the final say. Led by Conn Smythe trophy winner Cale Makar, Colorado piled the pressure on Lightning tendy Andrei Vasilevskiy in the second period, with superstar Nathan MacKinnon and Artturi Lehkonen scoring a goal each to finally usurp Tampa.

What’s next: For Colorado? A sweet Stanley Cup parade. For Tampa Bay? Potentially the end of the dynasty as we know it. For the league? Hitting the links and preparing for the NHL Draft on July 7th. Offseason here we come.

⛳️👟⚽️🎓⚾️ Quick hits

LPGA: And the $1.35 million winner’s purse at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship goes to…South Korea’s Chun In-gee, who won her third career major title (her first in six years), finishing just one stroke ahead of both Australian Minjee Lee and American Lexi Thompson yesterday.

👟 Track & field: An epic weekend of USATF Outdoor Championships action is in the books with a stacked list of U.S. athletes securing their tickets to next month’s World Championships. The highlight? Olympic champion Sydney McLaughlin broke her own world record in the 400m hurdles, posting a blazing fast time of 51.41 seconds. Casual.

⚽️ USWNT: The USWNT’s young stars are making their presence known. Forward Sophia Smith scored twice while midfielder Taylor Kornieck notched a goal in her national team debut to lift the squad to a 3–0 Saturday friendly win over Colombia.

  • Next up, tomorrow’s 10 p.m. ET rematch, the USWNT’s last warm-up tilt before next month’s all-important CONCACAF W Championship.

🎓⚾️ NCAA baseball: After a dominant 10–3 win in Saturday’s Men’s College World Series final Game 1, Ole Miss — who nearly missed the tournament entirely — came from behind to defeat Oklahoma 4–2 yesterday and claim their first baseball national title in school history. Hotty toddy, indeed.
