A couple of things here.

For one, I bet not a lot of you knew that Hov has an “active” instagram account.

Then, I’m sure you may have forgotten that Jay, on the low a few years ago, kicked the tires on the idea of buying into Arsenal.

My guy is a footy guy.

Bey is too. I dont think we can EVER forget this: BEYONCÉ In A Brazil Kit Is Picture Almost Perfection* – TOW

But, the unofficial royal family of the United States brought out the US Kits.

I’m racking my brain trying to figure out what the significance is of the number 4 shirt. It’s Becky Sauerbrunn, who we love (and who was waering Yeezy Boost 350’s at the ceremony today) but I can’t seem to think of a correlation.

Maybe its just the Nike ID kits that they could get. I could be missing something though.

** Updated **

It’s been solved by a hip hop head / TOW fam member Jenny.. The Carters are obsessed with the number four for some reason. Ivy. I V. 4. Duh…. how could I not see that.

Shouts out to @brooklynaguirre (fitting) for the heads up on this one.

Soccer players are getting more run that ever these days.

Then, he dropped pic this on his instagram.

Women’s World Cup Final Draws MASSIVE TV RATINGS with over 20 Million Viewers

Filed under: Business, Featured, TV, Women's World Cup

WE…together #USWNT23 and #BestFansInTheWorld, are World Cup Champions. #OneNationOneTeam

The final numbers arent calculated but the overnights are in. And. Yeah. The numbers are humongous!!!

Long story short, this when its all said and done will be the most watched soccer game in United States Soccer history.

womens world cup final tv rating via TVbythenumbers

For comparison and context here, the USMNT game against Portugal last year in the world cup had about 18 million viewers in the United States.

The overnights for USWNT v. Japan have them at 20 million plus at least, and the ‘peak viewers’ numbers will settle above 21 or 22 probably….

For even more comparison, and you know how I like to bring basketball in to this whole thing, is if you look at the latest NBA Finals numbers.

The Cleveland Cavs and the Golden State Warriors squared off and one could probably say that they are the two most popular teams in the NBA (unless you’re a Lakers fan and really know whats up) which resulted in them having the most popular NBA Finals broadcast since the Michael Jordan days.

Guess what those games averaged on ABC….. 19.9 million.

The Women’s World Cup Final did better.

FOX did an incredible job on coverage, they produced some awesome content, and from a viewers standpoint they kept me interested the entire time.

Random side note, the coverage across the board was great and if you missed the daily “Jay and Dan DON’T Go to the Women’s World Cup” on FS1 google and watch them. They are laugh out loud funny.
