This Week in Sports :: September Sports Start!

Sep 02, 2010

Extra! Extra! Summer is over and all your favorite athletes are home from summer vacation just like you… ready to get back to work! Why is everyone in Green Bay excited about Aaron Rodgers to bring home another Super Bowl to Green Bay? Have the Blackhawks kept enough players from their championship team to win another Stanley Cup? Where is Lebron James and Kobe Bryant and why are they not playing for the USA at the FIBA World Championships?

Pack Attack Aaron

Rodgers ReadyRodgers Ready

The Green Bay Packers have had the best pre-season in the NFL thanks to Aaron and his superb numbers. Has Aaron been over-looked as an all-star quarterback? Well, if so, that’s all over. Critics are raving about him and his possibilities to win the big one this year.

Blackhawk Down 8 Boys

The Chicago Blackhawks have lost 8 players of their 2010 Stanley Cup winning team including their star Finnish goaltender Antti Niemi. Andrew Ladd, Ben Eager, Dustin Byfuglien, Brent Sopel, Adam Burish, Colin Fraser and Kris Versteeg have all been traded in order for the Chicago managers to keep their star players like Patrick Kane, Jonathon Toews, Patrick Sharp and Marian Hossa. Obviously this will hurt their chances to win a second straight Stanley Cup… or will it?

US Strong without Lebron

US Still US Still

With the Americans sitting on a 5-0 record at the World Championship of basketball, Lebron and Kobe probably won’t feel too guilty about not playing for the US team. Lebron’s first game for the Miami Heat isn’t until October 5th, 2010 against the Detroit Pistons. I guess he’s just to busy trying to make sure tickets in Miami are selling… Yeah right! I bet tickets for Miami Heat games are sold out for the remainder of his contract… the next 6 years.

John’s Jolting Serve

Isner Is New StarIsner Is New Star

The US Open of Tennis is moving into the 2nd round right now in New York City and all the top ranked players have been advancing fairly smoothly. One of the biggest young stars that you might want to check out is John Isner from North Carolina. And he is big too! He’s 6’9 and his first serve is amazing to watch.

Slater Surfing to #1

The Slater SlideThe Slater Slide

Today is the last day for the Billabong Pro Tahiti Championship, the 5th event of the ASP World Tour of surfing. Local surfer at Teahupoo beach Manoa Drollet has knocked out #1 ranked Jordy Smith in round 3 to open the doors for Kelly Slater to win the event. If Kelly wins, it will put him in a great position in the World Rankings to win his 10th World Title.

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!
