What Had Happened Was: 10/10/16 Oh, you don’t know? We got you.

GAME. BLOUSES.

Game 1 of the WNBA Finals between the Los Angeles Sparks and the Minnesota Lynx was a thriller Sunday night! With the score tied at 76-76, the ball was kicked out to Sparks guard Alana Beard, who knocked down the corner jumper and gave the Sparks a 1-0 series lead.

Watch the play here!

Sparks’ Beard hits game-winning jumper to take Game 1 of finals

Beard even left WNBA legend and former Los Angeles Sparks great Lisa Leslie breathless … literally.

This is going to be a great series.

BLESSINGS!

Some things are bigger than football.

Before facing the New York Jets on Sunday, Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams stopped and hugged a group of breast cancer survivors who were on the sidelines. If you didn’t know already, Williams dyes his hair pink to honor his mother, Sandra Hill, who died of breast cancer in 2014.

Williams has stood strong in support of breast cancer awareness, even when the very league he plays for fined him for wearing customized breast cancer eye black last season.

All of that history aside, big ups to Williams for being one of the leagues faces of supporting breast cancer awareness, because at the end of the day, some things are in fact bigger than football.
