August Sports Preview

Aug 02, 2012

 

There have been so many great sporting events on TV this year, you’re probably either a couch potato, or inspired to get out and play. One way or another, we’re all having a lot of fun this summer in the sports world. Let’s check out what August has to offer…

One Hundred Reasons

On your mark… get set… go!!! The track events for the 2012 London Olympics start on Friday, August 3rd and who isn’t excited for the 100 m races. You’re not going to want to miss this so make sure you figure out London time in your time zone (hint – when London bells chime midnight, it’s still only 7pm in New York City):

  • Women 100m Preliminaries – 10:40am Friday, Aug 3rd
  • Men 100m Preliminaries – 10:00am Saturday, Aug 4th
  • Women 100m Final – 9:55pm Saturday, Aug 4th
  • Men 100m Final – 9:50pm Sunday, Aug 5th

4 Year Wait

The last day of the Olympics is always a sad day. We all think to ourselves, why do we have to wait another 4 years for this to happen? Well, if you don’t mind shedding a tear, make sure to catch the closing ceremonies on Sunday, August 12. You’re bound to see some special moments.

Once the Olympics are done, we should all get off our butts and go play in the sun. However, if you have a broken leg, why not rest it off watching the New York Yankees for the rest of the summer. The Bronx Bombers just recently acquired another one of the greatest players baseball has to offer with Ichiro Suzuki.

Team Audi #46
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.

The Cowboys have cut Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted in the NFL, from the team. Is this an expression of the conformity policy so deeply rooted in American athletics?
