So much for home field advantage! The Chicago Cubs were embarrassed at Wrigley as they dropped their first two games of the MLB playoffs to the Los Angeles Dodgers! See what else happened this week!

Dodgers Steal Two

Although it's been 100 years since the Chicago Cubs last won the World Series, this was supposed to be the year they were going to compete for the title again. But down, 2-0 to the Los Angeles Dodgers, it looks like the Cubs might not even make it out of the first round. The Dodgers have walked into Wrigley Field and absolutely dominated Chicago, outscoring them 17-5 in the first two games. Manny Ramirez of the Dodgers has been killing the Cubs - who have also been struggling defensively. The Cubs will have their chance for redemption as they head to L.A. for Game 3 on Saturday.

Titans and Bills Perfect

The Tennessee Titans and Buffalo Bills have gotten out of the gates fast so far in this early NFL season. Both teams have perfect 4-0 records coming into this weekend's games. Even though the Bills are undefeated, they have really had to really work for their wins. Buffalo trailed coming into the fourth quarter in three out of their first four contests, before coming back and winning. If the Bills beat the Arizona Cardinals this weekend, they will have only their fourth 5-0 start in franchise history. The Titans, on the other hand, are 4-0 because of their great defense. The lead the NFL in turnovers with 12 and also have 15 sacks as a team. On Sunday they look to stay unbeaten as they head to Baltimore to play the Ravens.

Parker Wins Rookie Award

Candace Parker of the Los Angeles Sparks has been named the 2008 WNBA Rookie of the Year. Parker won unanimously, receiving all 45 votes. For the season, the number one pick averaged 18.5 points, 9.5 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game. However, her Sparks though were eliminated by the San Antonio Silver Stars last weekend in the Western Conference Finals. The Silver Stars are taking on the reigning WNBA champions the Detroit Shock in the WNBA Finals. As of Friday, the Shock have a 1-0 series lead over the Silver Stars after defeating them 77-69 in Game 1 on Wednesday.

Notes Around the Sports World

  • Lee Evans of the Buffalo Bills, became one of the highest paid wide receivers on Thursday signing a four-year, $37.25 million contract extension on Thursday.
  • The University of Utah football team remained undefeated by barely squeaking by Oregon State 31-28 on Thursday. The 15th ranked Utes are now 6-0.
  • The Philadelphia Phillies have taken a 2-0 series lead over the Milwaukee Brewers in the MLB playoffs.
  • Last week, 10-year NBA veteran Jason Williams retired from the NBA. One of the flashiest players in league history, Williams played for the Sacramento Kings, Memphis Grizzlies and Miami Heat. He signed over the summer to play for the Los Angeles Clippers but abruptly retired right before training camp.
