As the buzzer sounded in Game 6 of the 2015 NBA Finals, a collective groan echoed from the Fancred community, followed by a "What do we do until football season?"

So... we made a list of upcoming sports stuff to keep you occupied until the beginning of September. But first, some obvious bullet points:

• The 2015 Women's World Cup has been amazing and there's still 3 weeks left. The US Women's matches saw some of the highest traffic on Fancred in June.
• If you're a baseball fan (and why shouldn't you be) you really have no major concerns because there’s baseball on TV pretty much every dang day.
• Should you find yourself awake early on the weekends, might we suggest cricket on the WatchESPN app, or Australian Rules Football (they play football on a cricket field) on FOX Sports 1, each of with have their own tags on Fancred.
• If you're the type that gets happy any any type of pigskin, Arena Football and the Canadian Football League should suffice. Also, the NFL preseason starts August 8.
• Did we miss anything? Tell us here and we'll add it to the list.
