The sports story on everyone’s lips this week was Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce, but I am so hyped for the WNBA playoffs this year. The Las Vegas Aces are pummeling the Dallas Wings despite the Texas women’s best efforts. Sabrina Ionescu and Breanna Stewart of New York Liberty are making the Connecticut Sun work for a spot in the finals. Friday night (Sept. 29) is both Game 3s, with Game 4s on Sunday (Oct. 1). But! It’s likely that the Aces will win on Friday and advance to the semifinals, so only plan for one Game 4 on Sunday. Join me in screaming about a sports story that actually matters: The Aces trying to be the first team to win back-to-back championships since the Los Angeles Sparks in 2001 and 2002. —Caitlin Cruz
