Christiano Ronaldo won his second men’s player of the year called the Ballon D’or. He beat Messi and when you compare their stats, they made the right decision. Ronaldo had 69 goals to Messi’s 45. Ronaldo plays for Real Madrid in La Liga BBVA, and plays for the Portugal national team who will play in the same division as the US national team.
In the NFL, another coaching vacancy was filled. The Tennessee Titans hired Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt not even 24 hours after his Chargers were knocked out of the playoffs. Whisenhunt has coached as an Head Coach for the Cardinals for 5 years and was an OC last year for San Diego . He went to a Super Bowl with the Cardinals and played as a TE for 7 seasons. For the Titans, they finished with a respectable 7-9 for a team like them. The Titans can improve their offense this offseason but losing star RB Chris Johnson is a high possibility.
The Knicks played a good game last night vs. The Rolling Suns. The Suns are having a good season and definitely better than expected. The Knicks were up by 15 in the 2nd quarter and both teams played a SLOPPY quarter with 2 techs coming from 1 player and tons of fouls. I was about to scream at the Knicks again when I stopped watching with 4:40 left in the 4th and the Knicks down by 5. Then the Knicks ended up going into OT and the Knicks held the Suns to 4 points to the Knicks 6 and the Knicks won. Carmelo Anthony had 29 points, 16 boards and 6 assists. That’s a double double. But Melo shot 9-24 on the field which was disappointing. On the Suns, Goran Gragic played like and All-Star with 28 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists and 1 block and steal. The Knicks will play Charlotte at home tonight.
Just a cool fact I saw on NFL Network, Peyton Manning said “Omaha” 44 times in Sunday’s game vs. The Chargers! And they said on NFL Network, “what the Omaha”?
