Hints of Activity
There are indications on campus of sports gearing up for the beginning of the school year.
Of course, our favorite athletes and coaching staffs keep plenty busy throughout the summer, just in ways that we don't typically see as much. But some visible signs of the times are starting to be seen.

I hope you're as excited as I am getting for fall sports to begin. It won't be long, now.
Hines-Allen Shoe Auction
The Mystics have created an event where they are auctioning several pairs of custom sneakers, hand drawn by artist Sammy Handler around themes picked by the athlete that will be wearing the shoes. The proceeds from the auctions will go to charities picked by the athlete. Myisha Hines-Allen is one of the athletes participating and the theme of her shoes is animal adoption, with proceeds from her shoe auction will go to the Humane Rescue Alliance.
The shoes are custom Nike Air Force 1s and have depictions of the Washington D.C. skyline, Hines-Allen's number two jersey, the Mystics logo, and most adorably, her dog, Ace.
Beware, if you want to bid, that the current (at the time of writing) bids for all of the shoes are at least $800, with Ace helping to draw a current bid of $1,000. Elena Della Donne's Pride and The Trevor Project themed shoes are approaching $2,000.

We took a week off from the Cardinal Couple Radio Hour Podcast this week as a confluence of scheduling events conspired against us.
We should be back next week with, (and if this doesn't drive home how close the fall seasons are getting, nothing will) an actual game preview for Women's Soccer in exhibition against Cincinnati.
