Rafa Writes History

Rafael Nadal won the US Open making him the 7th player to win a career grand slam. That means he is only the 7th tennis player to win all 4 different grand slams throughout his entire career. It’s very hard to win all 4 grand slams because they are on different surfaces and in different weather zones. Rafa had a hard time winning in New York City because of the wind, but this year he finally showed everyone he’s King of All Courts.

Seattle Storm Strike Again

Jeter the Cheater

What a Joke JeterWhat a Joke Jeter

Derek Jeter made a very unsportsmanlike play this week to cheat his way on to first base. In a very important game with Derek’s team, the New York Yankees, and the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Derek pretended to be hit with a pitch when the ball obviously hit the bat. Derek totally tricked the umpire to believe that it was his arm that got corked and the umpire awarded him first base. Well, the good news is that the Yankees would go on to lose the game and the Rays passed them for top spot in the Major League. The bad news is that Derek looks worse than a diving soccer player.
