This Week in Sports - June 1-6, 2007

The Ducks bring the Cup home to Cali and LeBron starts his quest for a ring. Find out what else happened this week in sports!

Sports News - Quack, Quack, Quack

For the third straight season, a Canadian team falls short of winning the cup. On Wednesday, the Anaheim Ducks defeated the Ottawa Senators 6-2 in the series-deciding game five. This marks the Ducks' first ever Stanley Cup in franchise history. A Canadian team has not won a Stanley Cup since the 1992-93 season, when the Montreal Canadians defeated the Los Angeles Kings in five games.

Sports News - LeBron Hits the Big Stage

When LeBron James came out of high school in 2003, there was a lot of hype around him. It's safe to say that he's lived up to that hype, as he led the Cavaliers into the NBA Finals after closing out the Detroit Pistons on June 2, 2007. This marks Cleveland's first appearance in the NBA Finals. The Cavs will meet the San Antonio Spurs, who easily defeated the Utah Jazz in the Western Conference Finals. This is going to be a tough task for LeBron and company, but whenever you have King James, anything is possible.

Sports News - French Open Favorites Cruising

As expected, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer are among the final four in the French Open's mens singles bracket. Straight off a victory over Carlos Moya on straight sets on June 6th, Nadal faces Serbian Novak Djokovic next. Federer, on the other hand, faces Russian Nikolaiy Davydenko in his semifinal match. We'll see if Federer and Nadal will meet in final, which promises to be a thriller. Nadal is nearly invincible on clay, while Federer has been dominating this past year with three grand slam titles already.

They're throwing each other in the air, performing possibly dangerous stunts, not even mentioning that they have to wear those skimpy outfits in freezing weather.  And also, my sister got a severe head injury and a sprained neck while doing a stunt. That's more injured than i've seen a basketball player get.

So it's not really a sport. It still looks fun though. Actually, cheerleaders do compete. There are cheer competitions.  Agree! 9o9
