Rams New Rookie
The St. Louis Rams have potentially found a way out of the basement with their 1st pick of the 2010 NFL draft, Sam Bradford. This huge 6’4 – 250 pound quarterback played his first game against the New England Patriots Thursday and did not disappoint. Sammy led the Rams to a 36-35 win completing 15 out of 22 passes for 189 yards.
Tampa Bay to the Top
The Tampa Bay Devil Rays have caught the New York Yankees for the top position in the Major Leagues. The Rays are the hottest team in the League winning 7 of their last 10 games. They are now tied with the Yankees with a 78-49 record in the standings. Only 35 games in the season remain with the Boston Red Sox only 5 games behind in their division. Who do you think will grab the pennant?
The ASP professional surfing tour continues this week in Tahiti at one of the most dangerous beaches in the World called Teahupoo. So far the waves have only been 3-4 high through 2 rounds of surfing, but the weekend looks to hold some bigger sets of the beach’s potential 18-foot monsters. You can watch the competition live on the Billabong Pro website .
