๐Ÿ€NBA: Sure, playoffs are cool, but the NBA action weโ€™re excited about is behind the bench. The Portland Trail Blazers and Orlando Magic are both searching for new head coaches, and not one, but two women โ€” San Antonio Spurs assistant Becky Hammon and University of South Carolina head coach Dawn Staley โ€” are in contention. About damn time.

โšฝ๏ธSoccer: Though world No. 8 CanWNT delivered a disappointing 0โ€“0 performance against No. 27 Czech Republic on Friday (just a day before what should be a national holiday: Christine Sinclairโ€™s birthday, whoโ€™s now 38), coach Bev Priestman expects a more energized showing against a tough No .7 Brazilian squad today at 3 p.m. ET. 

โšพ๏ธMLB: The Toronto Blue Jays 18-4 win over the Boston Red Sox yesterday looked more like a football score than baseball, with the Jays hitting eight home runs, the most ever by any visiting team at the Soxโ€™ 109-year-old Fenway Park. Watch them close out the series at 7:10 p.m. ET tonight. Do we hear nine?
