Happy Monday Dawg fans, and welcome to today’s Dots.
- An action packed weekend for UW softball had a bit of everything - on Friday, 11-0 and 9-4 wins against #18 Tennessee and #20 LSU, on Saturday, a Gabbie Plain shutout and 1-0 win over a 3-6 Texas Tech team, followed by a 7-6 comeback victory over #7 Oklahoma State, and finally, yesterday’s 2-0 loss to #15 Clemson.

- I haven’t watched the NBA since the Sonics left and have no idea what All Star weekend looks like now, other than scorelines that are approaching 200 points. But I’d watch if they had this kind of sweet action (Ken Griffey Jr w the 2-handed jam at 0:52):
