Sports News - Sox Take Series

Coming into the World Series, it seemed like nobody could stop the Colorado Rockies. Not only did the Red Sox stop them, but they dominated them. Boston finished the sweep of Colorado on Sunday by winning 4-3. This is the second World Series title for Beantown since the supposed Curse of the Bambino was broken in 2004. The Red Sox now have a total of seven World Series pennants.

Sports News - Hingis Retires

In a shocking revelation, tennis star Martina Hingis abruptly retired from professional tennis after she tested positive for the cocaine during Wimbledon. The 27-year-old Swiss player has denied the claims and said she has never taken drugs in her life. She decided to retire because she doesn't want to spend years fighting the doping officials. Hingis is a five-time Grand Slam champion.

Sports News - Yankees Hire Girardi

The New York Yankees hired a new skipper on Thursday, naming Joe Girardi the new manager. Girardi was the manager of the Florida Marlins and was named the 2006 NL Manager of the Year. He was also a former Yankees player and bench coach. During the press conference, Girardi said he will wear the number 27 on his uniform because the Yankees have 26 world titles and he wants to give them their 27th. The manager he replaced, Joe Torre, has not been unemployed for long. On the same day, he was named the new manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
