A’ja Wilson scored 29 points, Kelsey Plum added 16 including a key 3-pointer in the final minute, and the Las Vegas Aces spoiled the final regular season home game for Sue Bird beating the Seattle Storm 89-81. The largest crowd in Storm history packed Climate Pledge Arena to thank Bird for her two decades as the face of the Storm franchise and one of the best women’s basketball players in history.  But the Aces weren’t willing to play their part in ensuring Bird’s finale was a win. Breanna Stewart finished with a season-high 35 points and Tina Charles added 19. Bird finished with nine points, six assists and four rebounds, but the result a loss like the first game she played in Seattle 20 years ago.

Pete Rose dismissed questions about his first appearance on the field in Philadelphia since the franchise scrapped 2017 plans to honor him because of a woman’s claim she had a sexual relationship with baseball’s hit king when she was a minor. Rose told a female baseball writer “it was 55 years ago, babe.” The 81-year-old Rose received a standing ovation from Phillies fans when he walked onto the Citizens Bank Park field for the first time since he received a lifetime ban from Major League Baseball in August 1989. He was honored along with other members of the 1980 World Series champion Phillies team. The original anniversary celebration was postponed for two seasons because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Kyle Busch’s tumultuous year took another turn. Busch and his family escaped the Mall of America in Minnesota after shots were fired, three days before racing at Michigan International Speedway. When shots were fired, Busch and his son were waiting in line to ride a roller coaster while his wife and their daughter were shopping elsewhere in the largest mall the U.S. The harrowing experience did not appear to give Busch a newfound perspective on his life and career. The two-time NASCR champion does not have a contract for next season and that appears to be his chief concern.

Hall of Fame pitcher Dennis Eckersley says he is leaving the Boston Red Sox broadcasts at the end of the season. It's his 50th in Major League Baseball. Eckersley was drafted by Cleveland as a California high schooler in 1972. He went on to pitch 24 seasons as both a 20-win starter and a 50-save reliever for Cleveland, Boston, the Cubs, Oakland and the Cardinals. He won the AL Cy Young and MVP awards in 1992 while playing for the Athletics. He joined NESN in 2003 and stood out for his outspoken and colorful analysis on the Red Sox broadcasts.

Malcolm Brogdon and Danilo Gallinari both know what it’s like to get close to winning an NBA championship. Brogdon was drafted by Milwaukee and spent his first three years there before being traded two years ahead of the Bucks ultimately winning the title. Gallinari bounced around on five different teams before helping Atlanta make a surprise Eastern Conference finals run in 2021. It’s why the Celtics’ top free agency pickups are eager to be in Boston, a team they feel they can help claim the championship that eluded it this past season. For Brogdon, who was Indiana's leading scorer last season, that includes accepting an understudy role to incumbent point guard Marcus Smart.
