This Week in Sports :: Roids for Roger?

Aug 19, 2010

It’s time for another quick run down of “This Week in Sports”. Want to know who’s in court fighting to stay out of prison? Who’s the hottest team in baseball? And what do you do when you’re up 24-0 and a linebacker is charging to crush you into next week? Let’s go!

The Steroid Sinker

One of the greatest pitchers ever to play the game of baseball is on trial for using drugs. 101 mph Roger Clemens faces up to 30 years in prison! He denies ever using steroids but if he’s caught lying, he’ll be banished from the record books. Of course, everyone is waiting for Barry Bonds’ turn to face a jury next March.

Red Hot

Reds on Top!Reds on Top!

The Cinncinati Reds swept the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-0 and with their 6th straight win, the Reds are the hottest team in Major League Baseball. Cinci now faces the Los Angeles Dodgers who are barely struggling to stay above .500. Looks like L.A. will be seeing a lot of Red this weekend.

Baby Back Ribs

Montreal Man DownMontreal Man Down

The Montreal Alouettes lose their star quarterback Anthony Calvillo in their win against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Anthony broke some ribs as he was creamed by Winnipeg defensive end Odell Willis while throwing a pass. The hit was so big that Anthony laid dead for a couple of minutes, tried to get up and fell back down. Montreal was winning 24-0 at the time of his injury so maybe next time you’ve got that big lead Anthony… duck and cover!

NHL Nonsense

NHL NoodlesNHL Noodles

The NHL must be really hurting if they’re thinking of changing the rules again to make the game more exciting. If it’s bad enough that most games are settled with a shootout, now they are thinking about changing the 4 on 4 overtime to 3 on 3. Make up your minds already… God!

The summer is hard looking for exciting sport stories. What kinds of sports would you like to hear more about? Let us know with a quick comment.

Boys CAN cheerlead, but chances are they will be made fun of(not by me). Cheerleaders do A LOT of physical cheers and stunts, and we use ourselves instead of gear. A lot and most people underestimate cheerleaders for just some girls with poms and uniforms going "go team! yay!" because they have seen that in movies and tv. look up some cheer comp videos and still only some people with change their view of cheerleaders as girls on the sidelines doing uncreative cheers and stupid words to match. I hope this helped you understand a little bit more about cheerleading and cheerleaders. Peace Out!

All cheerleaders and coaches put A LOT of effort and time into making and practicing cheers. It is true that cheerleaders turn people and the players on...but it's much more than that. it's about having fun, teamwork, having some more fun, getting some exercise (uh that kinda makes it a sport right?), and great times with the other girls on your squad.   Rant over lol
