Major League Soccer resumed its season Wednesday night amid protests against racial injustice and the fact that one team, FC Dallas, has been pulled from play because about a dozen players tested positive for COVID-19.

Also, there's a renewed conversation about racist team nicknames in Washington and Cleveland.

Host Robin Young talks to Here & Now sports analyst Mike Pesca, who hosts the daily podcast The Gist, about the state of sports.
