The Los Angeles Angels clinched the AL West tile with the A’s loss last night and their big 5-0 win. LA is the 3rd team (Nationals and Orioles) to clinch their division so far. C.J Wilson pitched a gem for LA allowing 1 hit over 7 strong innings and 7 k’s. DH C.J Cron had a 3 run homer to open up the game for the Angels. Watch out for LA, they are EN Fuego right now and can be a serious playoff contender considering their talent along with the O’s. So far KC Royals and the A’s lead the AL Wild-Card race with Seattle 2 games back rom the A’s and the Indians. In the NL, the Giants and Pirates lead with the Brewers back by 2.5 and Atlanta down by 5.5. Tonight is Thursday Night Football with the Falcons and Bucs facing off, look for an offensive explosion for the Falcons and a huge game from QB Matt Ryan and WR Julio Jones and Roddy White who I think will play despite his hammy problems. The MLS released it;s new logo online. I may not be extremely eye popping, but I read that it has a meaning so definitely go and check it...Read More
The Uruguay national team may have beat Italy 1-0 in an exciting game but this game was full of controversy… Uruguay star Luis Suarez was caught yet again for biting an opponent. Usually players have problems like hitting or injuries, but Suarez bites? This is the 3rd incident of the star player biting opponents when he but an opponent on Ajax in a fight and in Liverpool when he bit a player on Chelsea. He received lengthy suspensions/fines for those incidents. Now he may cost Uruguay the World Cup by sitting for the whole tourney. For yesterday’s bite, Suarez was not penalized, but Fifa knows what they need to do thats best which is suspend him. Suarez and the Uruguay coach had comments on the bite that just made this mess worse by trying to defend themselves. This investigation is ongoing, crazy, and yes, it is spreading ALL OVER social media… World Cup update- Greece 2 – Ivory Coast 1 : Greeks advance on GW penalty kick in box… Colombia 4 – Japan 1 Italy 0 – Uruguay 1 Costa Rica 0- England 0 – England lowest pt total in their World Cup history (1)… Knockout Rd. – *= 1 more game (current position) Brazil Mexico Netherlands Chile Columbia Greece Costa Rica Uruguay France * Ecuador * Argentina * Nigeria * Germany * USA * Belgium * Algeria * NBA-...Read More
