The media alert reads in full:

While a lot of pro-sports and esports crossover events do well, I’m not exactly certain who this stream is targeting. I don’t know a lot of MTG fans who also baseball, but there’s gotta be someone. TSM is the esports organization that manages NumotTheNummy, so their involvement does make sense. Pence is absolutely the wildcard here.
We’re not sure what the stream will consist of, but we have a guess that it’ll likely include Magic: The Gathering and it’s recent War of the Spark expansion. We’re sure the two will end up playing a few rounds of MTG while they’re on stream, but you have to wonder if there isn’t a deeper reason for this one.
Which means you’ll want to catch the stream later today.
