Sports News - Super Bowl in London?

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell revealed this week that he wants to host a Super Bowl in London someday. It would be the first time the world's biggest sporting event would be held outside of the United States. In previous years, the NFL has held preseason games in Mexico, Canada, Europe and Asia. A 2005 regular season game between the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers drew a record 103,467 fans. On October 28, 2007, London's Wembley Stadium will host the first regular season NFL game outside of North America between the Miami Dolphins and New York Giants.

Sports News - Kobe Out of LA?

Has Kobe Bryant played his last game as a Laker? It appears so, as rumors that Bryant has already cleaned out his locker have surfaced. In the past week, owner Jerry Buss has also suggested that the Lakers are open to shopping their franchise player. During the summer, Bryant made it no secret that he wanted out of Los Angeles when he voiced a few attacks on his team in the media. Among the teams on Bryant's wish list are the Dallas Mavericks, New York Knicks and Chicago Bulls.

    Of course we can! It's true that we're a little less strong physically, but we can. "Can't" means just that, we can't. And that's wrong. It's true we have to deal with all that physical pain (I can whine about it for agesss) and mental pain too. And that some of us cry easily. But that's because we feel pain! So although we are less strong physically as I said earlier, girls can also think up ways to surprise someone in a fight. And that's a good thing to do to someone who laughs at a girl and says they cant fight.

    Cheer-leading is a sport - most people think that it is not - but it is Yes it looks like they are just cheering on the football players - but their routines and being able to hold up girls over their head takes strength, and they work really hard to make everything look good.

    I liked cheering for the underdog, so I've always cheered for the Cavs. I'd like to see how this year's line-up goes, though our past best point guard left for the Celtics.  :/
