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.

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!

    Pats. The only way they would lose would be due to the deflated balls as an illegitimate way of getting to the Super Bowl. They wouldn't deserve to win in the eyes of some people. Maybe even the NFL. Besides that, the Patriots will take this win.  And lets be honest, nobody wants to see the Seahawks win two years in a row except for the fans that became fans once they saw that they were good. (Yes the shots have been fired.)

The highest I go is about the middle of the pitch :p :p :p So basically you play more of an attacking right midfield? That's interesting.  I'm guessing you play a 4-2-3-1 ? I play RM and LM. I'm a Box to box midifielder though. I rarely go through to the middle and I play wide.
