The NBA released its 2019-20 season schedule, which includes many earlier tipoff times that will benefit the East Coast after a summer in which numerous stars such as Anthony Davis wound up out west. The move should help the league’s TV ratings, which declined last year.
Ohio State filed a federal trademark of the word “The” (as in “The Ohio State University”) on T-shirts and hats. In addition to having virtually no chance of passing, the school opened itself up to mockery from late-night talk show hosts and rival schools.
MLB announced it will play a regular-season game between the Yankees and the White Sox next season in a new ballpark next to the Iowa cornfield made famous in “Field of Dreams.” While ticket demand is already high for the 8,000-seat stadium, but critics have countered that both the event and the venue feel small.
