This Week in Sports :: The Sunshine City

Aug 12, 2010

This week we are taking a look at Tiger Woods and why his golf game is sinking like a tiger in quick sand. Also who is the hottest team in the National League? And finally, did you know that Ilya Kovalchuk was offered a 17-year contract with the New Jersey Devils? Find out why the NHL rejected it and what’s going to happen now in “This week in Sports” .

Sunny Days in San Diego

The San Diego Padres are the best team in the National league with a record of 67-46… are they the best-kept secret in baseball. The padres really don’t get the attention like big city teams. The Yankees and Red Sox are always in the headlines in the East, while the Dodgers seem to have the hearts of everyone in the West. But what about those Padres???


Time and time again, pitching seems to win the World Series and right now the Padres have the best pitching in the League. With a combined 2.72 Earned Run Average, the padres pitching staff has the best stats amongst all pitchers on the team.

The big question is… do the Padres have a pitcher that can close those big 9th inning playoff games? Their relief pitchers are all kind of unknown guys. Will they be able to keep up their surprising performances as the games become more important? Will the Padres ever win a World Series?

Trauma for Tiger

Not HappyNot Happy

Last week, Tiger Woods played his worst game of golf ever and everyone was talking about him needing a psychologist. Tiger shot a horrible 18-Over-Par in four rounds of golf at the Bridgestone Invitational leaving Tiger-fans guessing whether he is suffering mentally as his career is plummeting to the bottom since he was caught cheating on his wife.

Troubles for TigerTroubles for Tiger

This week is better for Tiger as he is only 4 strokes behind the leaders Matt Kuchar at the PGA Championship. Tiger will be teeing off tonight at 6:45 pm EST to play his 2nd round. He’ll be most likely be the center of attention as he is still the fans’ favorite.

A Devil’s Dilemna

If you haven’t heard about the biggest news in the NHL, Ilya Kovalchuk has turned into the Lebron James of hockey. He was offered a 17-year contract for over 100 million dollars to stay in New Jersey. It was the biggest contract ever offered in the NHL and the league denied it. Why you ask?

Ilya is 27 years old so it’s pretty obvious that he won’t even be playing 17 more years. The Devils made him that contract so they could pay him more money than the NHL salary cap will allow them to… how devilsh!!!

Now a team from the KHL in Russia has offered Ilya the exact same contract as they do not have a salary cap. Will Ilya stay in the NHL or will he leave the NHL for more money? What do you think Ilya will do?

A recent comment on a video gave me this idea , of writing about this whole scenario  the comment was something like this Messi + Ronaldo = Zlatan It was something that made me happy , cuz i'm a Zlatan fan myself , but keeping that aside I'll be honest in stating the reasons due to which Zlatan is considered better among fans  1st - Tired of Messi vs Ronaldo ; For those of you tired of the endless Messi vs Ronaldo debate Zlatan is the middle way , when Zlatan was asked for a word to describe Messi and Ronaldo  he said for Messi - Fantastic , for Ronaldo - Good ( he'd definitely prefer messi since he was in barca , so definitely against Real Madrid , but i'll skip that ) , but when asked about one word for Zlatan - "WOW!" that was his answer 2nd - If you believe in extraordinary and Jaw-dropping stuff; If we talk about Messi and Ronaldo we'll think constant goal scorers and team players and who deliver something great evry time the team needs it , but Zlatan he may also score regularly not as frequent as Messi or Ronaldo , but every time he scores it's another jaw dropping goal , whether that 32 yard bicycle kick vs England or extraordinary volleys Zlatan is Zlatan 3rd Zlatan does things nobody does; You won't see Ronaldo having fun with reporters or Messi bad mouthing his manager even when he is wrong , Zlatan doesn't cares,  like who can forget the epic reply to Arsene Wenger on asking Zlatan to play a trial game , -" ZLATAN doesn't do Auditions" If some of you guys don't agree with me no problem , everybody has their own opinion , and if you don't agree with me cuz you don't know about any of those Zlatan goals or interviews , then you should definitely search the internet for - Extraordinary Zlatan  ZLATAN may had not won the -ballon d'or , but has won large no of trophies and league titles  search for zlatan ibrahimovic - titles and trophies for that

Well for me, I think totally! Inside that is. When a guy says girls can't play sports I think THEY can't be cheerleaders. But if a guy says girls CAN play sports, yep, they could be cheerleaders
