Welcome to your weekly dose of Therapy. Today, most of my news has already been written by another of our site's fabulous writers:
- Lindsey has a writeup of last night's slightly embarrassing 79-61 Lynx loss to the Washington Mystics, the Lynx's worst loss since a 22 point defeat to the Los Angeles Sparks on August 4 and their second worst defeat of the season. However, the playoff picture still looks good:
...but not as good as we thought (via Coach Reeve).
This is not true. 2 wins pertains to securing no lower than 2nd. Unfortunately this has been reported inaccurately https://t.co/g6h0mSzMpr— Cheryl Reeve (@LynxCoachReeve) August 20, 2015
- Wolves: not much. It's August, they basically have a roster, and players are relegated to appearing on commercials and late night TV (which, to be fair, is pretty cool).
- Other thing updates, because this is what I do: the League of Legends North American League Championship is at Madison Square Garden between two of the oldest esports organizations in North America: Team Solo Mid (TSM) and Counter Logic Gaming (CLG) on Sunday at around 3:00pm CDT (after the conclusion of the European championship.
The games will be streamed on Twitch on Sunday, check them out if you'd like to see some excitement of a new variety. My (biased) money is on CLG in 4 (best of 5).
- More other thing updates: lots of cricket! The last Test match of the Ashes is taking place RIGHT NOW from London (England have clinched the series and hold a 3-1 lead), and the first day of the second Test of India-Sri Lanka has likely just finished (Sri Lanka leads the three Test series 1-0).
