#WelcomeToCuba President Barack Obama became the first US President to go to Cuba since Calvin Coolidge in 1928 and the Tampa Bay Rays became the first MLB team (to go there) since 1999. The walls have finally been broken following…
#Srbija #1 #Djokovic Novak prevailed over #UK #2 Andy Murray 6-1, 7-5, 7-6 to collect his record sixth Australian Open (#AussieOpen) Title and eleventh Major (tying Björn Borg and Rod Laver)! #Djokovic was almost flawless in the service game, and remarkable still so in the return game! Murray was no push over, even went toe-to-toe in the second set and forced a tie-break in the third set, but #Djokovic stayed determined and held on! #Djokovic (almost) successfully completed the calendar slam (winning all four majors) in 2015, and still is just getting better and better; having former German star tennis baller Boris Becker as your coach doesn’t hurt.
Perhaps the most uplifting story in the NFL came on Sunday afternoon when shoe-in HOF QB Peyton Manning returned to the Denver Broncos! He came into the game in the second half, and helped them preserve their #1 seed throughout the Playoffs instead of dropping to #5 (a wild-card spot) with a nail-biting 27-20 win over the San Diego Chargers! What made it all the more epic was playing in front of the hometown crowd at Sports Authority Field at Mile High #Denver! It turned out that the
MLB badly messed up the call during gametime, but is attempting to make up for it after the fact! Tonight MLB suspended LA Dodgers’ Chase Utley two games for the controversial ‘tackle’ slide that broke NY Mets’ Rubén Tejada right leg last night! During the controversial play, Utley sort of side-kicked (leg tackled) way out of the baseline at Mets’ second baseman Tejada legs to break up any chance at a double play. Utley slid very late, and directly at Tejada…
The NY Yankees paid tribute to Yogi Berra, who passed away on Sept. 22 at 90 years old, coincidentally exactly 69 years from his MLB debut. He lived beyond his years, and played beyond his peers; accomplishing 18 All-Star appearances, 15 consecutively. He was also an astounding 10-time World Series Champion with the NY Yankees, and even played and coached briefly crosstown for the NY Mets later in his career…
NFL QB Tom Brady was recently served a four-game suspension for deflating footballs in a Championship game last December. Now Brady is pushing his appeal through the NFLPA, implying that he had no part in the scandal?! This kind of nonsense makes me hate Brady; for one he just won the chip and two he is directly involved!
The rough rugged rugby Cleveland Cavaliers behind soft-spoken Lebron James, were knocked off by the Golden State Warriors AKA Splash Bros. 105-97 tonight for the NBA Championship! The Warriors have claimed the heralded golden nugget for the first time in forty years! Lebron James played insane on forty shots a game, but it wasn’t enuff! Delly where you at? LMAO! The Warriors won four games out of what ended up a six game series!
Dwight Howard looked lost, James Harden was still perfecting the Euro 2-step, as the Houston Rockets got straight up MAULED by the LA Clippers 128-95 for Game 4 of the Western (Conference) Semifinals tonight! The Clips now have a commanding (3-1) series lead over the Rockets!
When you watched the 45-7 romping of the Indianapolis Colts at the hands of the villainous New England Patriots for the AFC Championship game Sunday nothing seemed suspicious… but with the breaking news, the Patriots were found to be cheating?! 11 of the 12 Patriots’ footballs were under inflated by two pounds of pressure or PSI (Pounds per Square Inch). NFL rules state that the official game-ball must be between 12.5 to 13.5 PSI. Basically it makes the ball easier to catch and throw, as it doesn’t bounce as hard off the body and gives a better grip for the toss.
Kobe did it again, as he hit another milestone! He became the first player in NBA HISTORY to fetch 6,000 assists with over 30,000 points (32,123 career regular-season points)! Amazingly, he also hit his 20th career triple-double (31 points, 11 boards, and 12 assists) at the same time in 119-112 OT win over the Toronto Raptors on Sunday!
