In a new Nike advertisement, former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick says, "Believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything." Only A Game's Karen Given has noticed that some people support Kaepernick, but aren't quite sure they support Nike.

Meanwhile, Lindsay Gibbs of ThinkProgress is looking forward to the WNBA Finals between the Seattle Storm and the Washington Mystics. On one side, 37-year-old Sue Bird has been turning back the clock. On the other, Elena Delle Donne has been playing despite an injury. "This is just really entertaining basketball," Gibbs says.

And, finally, MLB national correspondent Will Leitch is surprised by the lack of attention being paid to the Chicago Cubs. Now that they've ended their World Series drought, are the Cubs an afterthought?
