This Week in Sports - November 19-23, 2007

For the second straight year, a Philly nabs the National League MVP. See what else happened this week!

Sports News - Rollins Nabs MVP

Last year Ryan Howard took home the NL MVP for the Philadelphia Phillies. On Tuesday, Howard's teammate Jimmy Rollins took home the hardware for the 2007 season after leading the Phillies to their first playoff appearance in 14 years. The Gold Glove shortstop barely edged out Colorado's Matt Holliday for the prestigious honor. Hollins batted .296 with 30 home runs and 41 stolen bases. For the American League, Alex Rodriguez of the Yankees took home his third AL MVP on Monday.

Sports News - Lil Romeo Signs

Lil Romeo has been doing big things in the music and show business world since the time he was a just a little kid. But lately Romeo has been making it big in another area - basketball. This week, the 6'1" high school senior signed with USC, one of the top college basketball programs in the country. His father, Master P, was a standout college basketball player and came very close to making the NBA in the late '90s.

Sports News - Tyson in Pink?

On Tuesday, ex-boxing champion, Mike Tyson, reported to jail, where he served a one day sentence for cocaine possession. The 41-year-old boxer plead guilty to the charge in September for the incident that happened last year in Arizona. He was also sentenced to three years probation and will have to perform 360 hours of community service. The funny part about this whole thing is Tyson will have to wear a black-and-white jump suit and wear pink underwear. So unless you want to look as stupid as Mike, don't get in trouble!

    It's definitely an American thing - here in Australia we have like no Cheerleaders or Cheerleading groups. I think it's a sport but I'm not really into it. I think any girls or boys can do it. :3

    Sure, many girls can fight, in fact some can fight really well, however it is a fact that women are generally physically weaker than men, which means that if a healthy male and a healthy female were to fight then the outcome wouldn't be 50/50 but rather 25/75 if even that much, this assumes that both the male and female have the same experience, training and of course both are healthy. This doesn't mean that women are inferior to men, but I am just pointing out facts, the notion that men and women are exactly the same and should be carrying out the same tasks is ridiculous.
