We've got a themeless puzzle today of medium-hard difficulty. The seed entry for this puzzle is one of my favorite phenomena in sports, and I hope it's interesting even to those solvers who don't love sports. I know you're out there--I see you, I hear you, and I am committed to continuing to ignore your cries to stop adding more sports to my puzzles. Much love.
Update 12/13: Revised a corner to take out an objectionable entry. Thanks to Chris Piuma and Chris Adams for the feedback!
