Weekly Rewind

The Weekly Rewind is our recap of some of the captivating sports stories of the previous week.

Rio in 2016!- No not Chicago, but in Rio De Janeiro. In fact, Chicago was obviously on the bottom of the list for IOC voters. The city, our president, along with the rest of the U.S. was shocked by the first defeat in the first round of voting, but the show must go on. The always entertaining Olympic Games will be enjoyed by us all, even down in Brazil.

30HR, 100 RBI’s again for A-Rod– The Yankees locked up a playoff spot a couple of weeks ago and the AL East title in late September, but A-Rod still had some unfinished business. The slugger finished the last 12 seasons with at least 30 HR’s and 100 RBI’s, 13 overall. Even after missing the first month of the season, Rodriguez entered Sunday’s finale against the Rays with 28 HR’s and 93 RBI’s, no way he’d reach 30/100 again. There’s nothing a 3-run HR and a Grand Slam can’t cure. He’s a clown, but this guy is really talented.
Kobe and Artest together?- NBA training camps started last week and all eyes were on the champs and their new addition. The Lakers acquired Ron Artest in the off season and will be tasked with keeping his emotions under control. Team captain, Kobe Bryant has been able to maintain the team’s chemistry over the past 4 or 5 years, but his leadership skills will definitely be tested in the 2009-10 season.

On to the Playoffs, right? Not for everyone. Bottles of champagne were popping all over the country as teams in both the American and National leagues clinched divisional titles and playoff slots. But there is still one spot that remains vacant, the AL Central. After 162 games the Twins and the Tigers are still tied and will play in a one-game playoff in Minnesota to determine that league’s champion. The winner will get the Yankees in New York on Wednesday or Thursday. The Yankees will have 1-hour after the Twins-Tigers game on Tues. to decide.
