1. BTS Announce 2020 Tour

K-pop kings BTS will be taking over the world this year with their Map of the Soul tour. The journey begins following the release of their upcoming album, Map of the Soul: 7, due out February 21.

Both teams will head to Miami for Super Bowl LIV on Sunday, February 2. The 49ers are looking to match Pittsburgh and New England for the most Super Bowl wins (they currently have five). Meanwhile, the Chiefs are attempting to get their first victory since 1970, when they won their only Super Bowl title against the Minnesota Vikings. Festivities will begin in Florida later next week, with kickoff set for 6:30 pm ET on Sunday.

4. NHL Enters All-Star Weekend

The NHL’s top stars have gathered in St. Louis this weekend to show off their stuff. All-Star action begins tonight with the Skills Competition, which will reveal who is the fastest skater, hardest shot and most accurate shooter. The All-Star Game will follow on Saturday with a three-on-three tournament consisting of three games. The final will feature the winners of the Eastern Conference and Western Conference division matches. Vets like Chicago Blackhawks’ Patrick Kane and Montreal Canadiens’ Shea Weber will be there alongside a number of first-time appearances from players representing all 31 NHL teams.


5. Zion Stuns in NBA Debut

The No. 1 overall draft pick Zion Williamson made his way onto the NBA court for the first time on Wednesday at New Orleans Pelicans’ arena. He had been out all season because of knee surgery, but came in strong for his big debut, finishing with 22 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists. The Pelicans may have lost 121-117 against the San Antonio Spurs, but Williamson certainly proved his worth.
