Sports News - World Series Starts

The Boston Red Sox moved on to the World Series after defeating the Cleveland Indians in seven games earlier this week. On Wednesday, the Sox met the red-hot Colorado Rockies in Game 1 of the Series. But the Rockies were far from on fire as they fell 13-1 in the opener. This is the first World Series for the Rockies and the 12th World Series for Boston. The Sox last won it all in 2004.

Sports News - Chargers Future Unsure

The wild fires that have devastated Southern California have put a hold on everything - including sporting events. The San Diego Chargers were scheduled to play at home on Sunday against the Houston Texans, but their home field Qualcomm Stadium has been used to place the thousands of San Diego residents that were forced to evacuate. In fact, some of the Chargers like LaDainian Tomlinson's house were in jeopardy from the massive fires. In the meantime, the Chargers have been practicing at the Arizona Cardinals' practice facility in Tempe, Arizona.

Sports News - Yankees Interview Pena

After 12 seasons as the manager of the New York Yankees, Joe Torre resigned this week after weeks of speculation whether he would get fired. Owner George Steinbrenner wasted no time looking for Torre's replacement. Yankees' first base coach Tony Pena has interviewed for the open position this week and has stated that he thinks he can bring the Yankees back to world champions. Pena was a five-time All-Star and has experience managing - he was the Kansas City Royals' manager for three seasons.

They're throwing each other in the air, performing possibly dangerous stunts, not even mentioning that they have to wear those skimpy outfits in freezing weather.  And also, my sister got a severe head injury and a sprained neck while doing a stunt. That's more injured than i've seen a basketball player get.
