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.

    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?
