Sports News:October 28

Dec 27, 2006

There's good news for everyone who hates the New York Yankees. The team that won the last three World Series' lost their bid for a fourth, thanks to a ninth inning comeback by the Arizona Diamondbacks. The D-Backs gave the Yanks a nasty snake bite and won their first ever World Series. Curt Schilling and Randy Johnson shared the MVP award by being the only Arizona pitchers who could actually be trusted.

San Diego Chargers' quarterback, Doug Flutie, dished out some sweet revenge against his former team on October 28th. Flutie ran in for a touchdown with a minute left in the game to give the Chargers a 27 - 24 win over the Buffalo Bills - the team that cut Doug earlier in the year. The Chargers are now 5 - 2, while the Bills are a nasty 1 - 5. Before the game, the owner of the Bills said he would rather win the game against the Chargers than the Super Bowl. His team didn't win the game and won't make it near the Super Bowl.
