The Weekly Rewind is our recap of some of the most captivating sports stories of the previous week.
New York, New York!- The Yanks won their first World Series since 2000 last week after defeating the Philadelphia Philles in 6 games. The Steinbrenners spent $100’s of millions trying to secure a championship caliber team and this year it finally paid off. Somebody please tell A-Rod that there is no crying in baseball, winning a championship doesn’t give you the right to shamefully shed tears.
Winless no more- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers finally won a football game. They beat the Packers 38-28 in Tampa Bay on Sunday. Rookie QB Josh Freeman threw 3 TD’s in his first NFL win and helped the Bucs snap an 11-game losing streak dating back to last season.
Saints still undefeated- For the first time in franchise history the New Orleans Saints are 8-0. The team got another big 30-20 win Sunday against a struggling Carolina Panther franchise and along with the Colts, look unbeatable.
Look who’s back on top- Just two years after winning a National Championship and losing his entire starting line-up to the NBA and graduation, Bill Self has his Jayhawks back on top of the college basketball polls. Surprisingly, in what was expected to be a rebuilding year, Kansas won the Big 12 title and made an appearance in the Sweet Sixteen last season. This year, senior guard Sherron Collins and junior center Cole Aldrich are expected to anchor a very talented Jayhawk squad.
