The Celtics are back in business with newly-acquired Kevin Garnett! Find out what else happened this week!

Sports News - Boston Lands Garnett

Just a few months ago, the Boston Celtics were the laughing stock of the NBA. Today they are championship contenders. On Tuesday, the Celtics traded four players and two future draft picks to acquire ten-time All-Star Kevin Garnett from the Minnesota Timberwolves. The move comes just a month after the Celtics traded for another all-star, Ray Allen. The combination of Garnett, Allen and Paul Pierce should make the Celtics a powerhouse in the Eastern Conference.

Sports News - Bill Walsh Dies

Bill Walsh, one of the greatest coaches in NFL history passed away on Monday in his home in California. The 75-year old coaching legend suffered from leukemia for the past three years. Bill coached the San Francisco 49ers for 10 seasons in the '80s, guiding them to three Super Bowl Championships. He was also responsible for coaching two of the best players in NFL history - Jerry Rice and Joe Montana.

Sports News - Still Stuck on 754

It's been over two weeks since Barry Bonds hit a home run. The San Francisco Giants' slugger has gone 1-12 from the plate with eight walks since hitting number 754 in Chicago. The pressure of beating Hank Aaron's record has taken a toll on Barry's productivity. Over his past 17 games, Bonds' batting average has dipped from .302 to .272 and he's struckout 11 times. The Giants will be in San Diego playing the Padres over the weekend.

Notes Around the Sports World

  • Former Formula One champion Nelson Piquet was required to take a drivers-ed course on Monday in Brazil after having his license revoked due to too many traffic violations. Talk about ironic!
  • On Tuesday, NASCAR racer Tony Stewart was fined $25,000 and docked 25 points for swearing during a TV interview after his victory at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
  • No team in the WNBA has been rolling quite like the Detroit Shock. They've won nine of their last 10 games and have the best record in the league at 21-6. It's not hard to see why they're so good - the Shock have five players scoring in double figures!

    "FBGirl" wrote:I like cheerleading, but definitely NOT a sport! Sports are physical activity with competition and GEAR. The closest thing cheerleaders have to gear are pom-poms. And, yeah. Boys CAN cheerlead, but chances are they will be made fun of(not by me). Cheerleaders do A LOT of physical cheers and stunts, and we use ourselves instead of gear. A lot and most people underestimate cheerleaders for just some girls with poms and uniforms going "go team! yay!" because they have seen that in movies and tv. look up some cheer comp videos and still only some people with change their view of cheerleaders as girls on the sidelines doing uncreative cheers and stupid words to match. I hope this helped you understand a little bit more about cheerleading and cheerleaders. Peace Out!
