January Sports Preview

Jan 06, 2012

It’s a new year and it’s time to look at the Sports calendar for the month of January.  If you’re a football fan, you have to love January, as every weekend will have down to the wire NFL playoff games.  Hockey fans can look forward to the all-star break at the end of the month. Let’s take a look at what else is going on in the world of sports this month.

Super Bowl Bound

The big excitement is, of course, the Super Bowl and who will try to stop the unstoppable Green Bay Packers. The Pack only lost one game this year to the Kansas City Chiefs, proving that nothing is a guarantee. The most exciting game to watch should be the Detroit Lions and the New Orleans Saints on Saturday, January 7, 2012.

All-Star Selection

The votes are in for the NHL all-star game to be played on January 29th in Ottawa, Ontario. Of course, the all-star selection is made by a voting system in the host city. Here is the starting line-up:

  • Daniel Alfredsson – Ottawa Senators
  • Jason Spezza – Ottawa Senators
  • Milan Michalek – Ottawa Senators
  • Erik Karlsson – Ottawa Senators
  • Dion Phaneuf – Toronto Maple Leafs
  • Tim Thomas – Boston Bruins

Well at least they chose a good goalie.

Tennis Tip

The biggest sports event outside of America in January is the Australian Open. The tournament will run from January 18-31. The big names to watch are Novak Djokovic (who won three out of four Grand Slams last year), and Caroline Wozniacki  who is ranked number one on the woman’s side.

Surfin' Surge

The big, big, big news in the extreme sports world is in Maui, Hawaii for a huge wave that comes every winter called Jaws. The waves are bigger than usual and the beach is packed with people to watch the craziest surfers in the world try to play with God. You can't watch the waves on TV, but there are so many cameras at the beach, this year's footage should be all over the surfing media.

Cheer leading, I think, is not a sport. I mean the girls who are cheer leaders never go are the girls teams but never miss a team where there are boys. So if it was a sport then shouldn't they cheer for all the students who are play a certain game where cheer leading is needed/allowed? Maybe in some schools it is a sport but in most, it isn't. -_-'

I don't know what is wrong with these teams. Former Colt's Head Coach, Tony Dungy, said that he wouldn't wan Sam because of the attention he was bringing. I just don't get it. I heard that his stats were amazing. A player should not be cut because of their orientation but because of their attitude or extremely poor skill. Why can't they just let him do what he loves to do, play football on a team that wants him.
