Weekly Rewind

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

Favre still fabulous at 40– The ageless wonder has led the Vikings to yet another victory. The team is now 6-0 and look as if they are unbeatable. So far Favre has only thrown 2 int’s, but the question remains can a 40-year-old arm hold up for an entire 16-game+ season; last year it didn’t.

The Yanks still undefeated in postseason– The New York Yankees had yet another walk off win, this time it came in the bottom of the thirteenth inning against the Angels in Saturday’s game 2 of the ALCS. Alex Rodriguez is finally showing his worth in October; he tied Saturday’s game in the 11th inning with a solo HR, the Yanks went on to win 4-3.

Crimson Tide #1 in AP poll– Nick Saban may be a liar, a fraud, and even an arrogant prick, but those qualities or lack thereof are overlooked due to his ability to build and coach a championship caliber team. Aside from the two forgotten seasons with the Dolphins, Saban’s  head coaching record is 116-50-1 and he now has this year’s Alabama team at the top of the AP poll at 6-0.

Starbury’s taking a break– Stephon Marbury announced last week that he’s going to take a year off from playing in the NBA to work on his businesses. Marbury compares his break to the ones that Michael Jordan took mid-career, the only difference is nobody cares if he leaves the game. He turned down a 1-year $1.4M deal to play with the Celtics this season. Honestly, he doesn’t need the money. He got $20M a year in New York to do nothing, so we won’t miss him. Doubt if he ever plays another NBA game.

Davies’ fans show support– USA Men’s Soccer forward Charlie Davies suffered a broken right femur, a broken tibia, a left elbow fracture, and facial fractures as a result of the fatal car crash he was involved in on October 13th in Virginia. Davies is expected to undergo 6 to 12 months of rehab and recovery before he can get back on the field. Though with a heavy heart, his teammates and fans across the world have shown their support by wearing the # 9 on their jerseys and shirts. Get well soon Charlie. This accident also took the life of 22-year-old Ashley Alberta.
