This Week In Sports :: A-Rod Rodeo
This week in sports is still locked on the 5 majors. The NBA, NHL, and NFL seasons are getting going, while Baseball is finishing up and the Premier League of Soccer running in Europe, let’s take a look at the top headlines in our favorite 5 popular sports.
Woooooah Toronto! Toronto Maple Leafs are 3-0 and they just finished off beating Sydney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins. Toronto was last place last year! What has come over these Maple Leafs? They did pick up Kris Versteeg from the Stanley Cup Champions Blackhawks… but it’s been Clarke MacArthur who has been putting the biscuit in the basket… 4 goals in 3 games.
The baseball playoffs are moving into the 2nd round today. The Yankees and the Rangers will face off in the American League, while the Phillies take on the San Francisco Giants.
A-Rod used to play in Texas before he was traded to the Yankees because of his lack of performance. The Rangers ate millions of dollars just to get rid of him. Here’s Alex’s chance to show them up close what they are now missing.
The NFL is still crazy unpredictable. Every team has now been defeated and there are about 20 different Super Bowl Contenders. Why don’t we just show you a funny clip of Brett Favre? I think something from above is trying to tell Brett that he should retire football.
The NBA might lose Allen Iverson to Turkey and it has nothing to do with Thanksgiving food addiction. A basketball club in Turkey called Besiktas are negotiating a contract to have Allen leave the NBA and come play for their basketball season for 2 million dollars.
The Soccer Show
The Boston Red Sox have purchased Liverpool LFC from London England for 476 Million Dollars. What the heck does a Baseball Team want with a Soccer Club from another continent??? Money, money, money! The owners are just as important about sports as the players, so if the Red Sox owners are making more money, they might be able to buy more all-star players to make their teams better. This is good news for the Boston Red Sox.
