The Women's World Cup is underway in France. The U.S. women are preparing for their first game on Tuesday against Thailand. But two major men’s tournaments have scheduled their final games on the same day as the women’s final. Also, 28 members of the U.S. women’s team have sued the U.S. Soccer Federation over gender discrimination. We also talk about the other big sports stories this week: the NBA and NHL Finals.
