📺 ESPN talks deals with NFL, NBA, MLB

ESPN faces an existential crisis as it seeks to secure a streaming future while the cable TV bundle is in terminal decline, Axios' Tim Baysinger writes.

Why it matters: The "worldwide leader in sports" being partially owned by a major league would raise a bevy of conflict-of-interest questions.

No deal is close. But multiple sources say ESPN, owned by Disney, has been discussing equity stakes with the NFL, NBA and MLB.

By the decree enforcing the institution of the papacy in violation of the law of God, our nation will disconnect herself fully from righteousness. When Protestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp hands with spiritualism, when, under the influence of this threefold union, our country shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and republican government, and shall make provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods and delusions, then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working of Satan and that the end is near. {5T 451.1}

Tara VanDerveer, the Stanford women's basketball head coach, passed retired Duke legend Mike Krzyzewski with her 1,203rd career victory yesterday.

  • No. 8 Stanford won at home in Maples Pavilion, beating Oregon State 65-56.

Why it matters: A head coach since age 24, the 70-year-old VanDerveer now stands atop major college basketball as the winningest coach of all time, AP reports.

She's now 1,203-267. In 45 seasons at Stanford, she's had 14 Final Fours.

  • Video tributes from Billie Jean King, Steve Kerr, Dawn Staley and Coach K himself (age 76) played on the big screen.

David Rubenstein, co-founder of the Carlyle Group, reached a deal to buy the Baltimore Orioles for $1.725 billion.

  • The Baltimore native is leading an investment group that includes fellow private equity mogul Mike Arougheti, Puck's John Ourand reported.

The Orioles are coming off a 101-win season and their first AL East title since 2014.

  • With young stars like Adley Rutschman and Gunnar Henderson, the future looks bright for a team that hasn't won a World Series since 1983.

The Washington Commanders have an agreement to hire a new head coach: Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn.

  • The team's new owners want a coach who can provide some leadership for a team that hasn't been consistently good in a long time, ESPN reports.

Eight NFL teams have hired new head coaches this year, as some of the most legendary coaches in the sport's history stepped aside.

🏈 Super Bowl ads: $7m for 30 seconds

A quarter of all Americans who plan to watch the Super Bowl say they're more interested in the ads than the game itself, Axios' Eleanor Hawkins writes.

  • Why it matters: Brands increasingly rely on sports events — especially football games — to advertise on TV as traditional spots become less effective.

The Super Bowl is expected to attract more than 110 million viewers, making it one of the last remaining spectacles that pretty much all Americans watch together.

  • National ads are selling for $7 million on a 30-second spot.

Marcus Collins, marketing professor at the University of Michigan and author of "For the Culture," told us: "People saw the Bud Light debacle and said: I don't want any of that smoke. ... Expect a very humor-driven Super Bowl."

ps:What a waste of money! Just like political money fund raising!!

Winter sports sadness
mail?url=https%3A%2F%2Fimages.axios.com%

Warming winters pose an existential threat to seasonal activities and sports — and the economies that depend on them, Axios' Ivana Saric reports.

  • Cold-weather communities across the U.S. have been forced to cancel or modify some events and traditions because of unusually high temperatures, driven in part by human-caused climate change.

🏂 Details: The snowmobiling and cross-country skiing seasons in parts of Wyoming and Montana are expected to shrink by 20%–60% by the end of the century.

  • Colorado's Evergreen Lake describes itself as the "world's largest Zamboni-groomed outdoor ice rink," but its ice wasn't thick enough for skating until late December, and it couldn't support the Zamboni for another two weeks beyond that.
  • The annual Pond Hockey Classic in Syracuse, New York, had to be moved into a human-made rink.
  • The ice on the only ice runway in the Lower 48 states has been too thin for planes all season.

☃️ "People are sad," said Claire Wilson, the executive director of Minneapolis' Loppet Foundation, a nonprofit that organizes outdoor activities for the public.

  • "They're bereft, really, because it's part of our culture. It's how you get through the long winter, through the dark days."

Go deeper.

🏈 Super Bowl is most-watched show ever
mail?url=https%3A%2F%2Fgraphics.axios.co
Data: Nielsen. Chart: Axios Visuals

Sunday's Super Bowl in Las Vegas was the most-watched telecast in history — with 123.4 million viewers across CBS, Univision and streaming platforms, Axios' Sara Fischer writes from preliminary Nielsen figures.

  • Why it matters: A nail-biter that ended in an overtime victory — combined with Taylor Swift sightings — drove massive ratings at a time when few events can pull together big swaths of the country.

🧮 By the numbers: Ratings were up more than 7% compared to last year's game, which held the previous record at 115.1 million viewers, CBS Sports said.

  • 120 million watched the game live on CBS, marking the largest audience ever for an event on a single TV network.

A record 202.4 million watched at least part of the game across all networks, a 10% jump over last year's 183.6 million, Nielsen said.

  • Univision drew 2.2 million viewers — the biggest Super Bowl audience ever for a Spanish-language network.

🏀 New NIL champion

💰 Caitlin Clark is now the top-selling athlete in college sports' NIL era — the new rules that allow players to profit from the use of the names, images and likenesses.

  • Fans scooped up troves of Clark-branded merchandise after she broke the NCAA women's scoring record. She sold more merch in the 24 hours after that game than any other college athlete ever has, according to Sports Illustrated.
