This Week in Sports - September 10-14, 2007

It was a week dedicated to number one picks. First, Jamarcus Russell finally signs, then Greg Oden gets hurt! See what else happened this second week of September!

Sports News - Jamarcus Signs

After holding out for all of the preseason, Oakland Raiders rookie Jamarcus Russell finally signed a contract. The Raiders gave the number one pick of the 2007 NFL Draft a four-year, $68 million US contract on Monday. The deal is the largest rookie contract in NFL history.

Sports News - Oden Hurt

Portland Trailblazer fans got some bad news on Thursday, when it was announced that rookie Greg Oden will miss the entire 2007-08 NBA season due to a knee injury. The top pick of the 2007 NBA Draft has cartilage damage and had microfracture surgery on Thursday to repair the damage. Oden is unsure when the injury occurred, but says he has been feeling a sharp pain in his knee this past month.

Sports News - Belichick Busted

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick found himself in some hot water this week as allegations surfaced that he did a little cheating in last week's game against the New York Jets. Supposedly, Belichick helped set up cameras that focused on the Jets' coaches for the intent of spying on them. On Thursday, Belichick apologized and is currently awaiting punishment from the NFL.

Notes Around the Sports World

  • On New Years Day 2008, the NHL will host an outdoor game between the Buffalo Sabres and the Pittsburgh Penguins. This will be the second ever outdoor hockey game and will be played at Buffalo's Ralph Wilson Stadium.
  • LeBron James underwent lasik eye surgery over the weekend to correct his vision. So if his jumpshot and passing improve next year, you know why!
  • Jamaican sprinter Asafa Powell broke his own world record in the 100 meters, by running it in 9.74 seconds in a race in Italy. His previous record was 9.77 seconds, which he ran in 2005.
  • To nobody's surprise Roger Federer won his fourth straight US Open title to defeat Novak Dokovic. On the women's side, Justine Henin defeated Svetlana Kuznetsova to capture the women's singles title.

    I started gymnastics when I was little and then did cheerleading. I have more practice and trainings doing gymnastics. I like cheerleading better coz we are a squad and we cheer together. :)  I'm alone when I do gymnastics.
