The Boston Red Sox recently attempted to sweep the Detroit Tigers, but the Tigers weren’t having any of that. The Tigers were outplayed in the series in all aspects of the sport, but they came to play in the final game of the series. Their bats got hot as they scored plenty of runs to back a great effort from their starting pitcher. Their bullpen sealed the deal with solid innings in relief of the starter.

Mark Sanchez, the New York Jets quarterback, is one of the most talked about players entering the 2013 NFL season. Last year was definitely a forgettable season for Sanchez. Not only did he have a sub-par season at the quarterback position, but he also failed to lead them to a postseason berth. Some people argue that Tim Tebow should have been given an opportunity to become the starter. This showed how much confidence that the coaching staff had in Sanchez, even through his Read the rest of this entry »

If you get all those crazy sports channels through http://www.direct2tv.com and you follow soccer (or football as the Europeans call it), then you might have heard about a strange thing that happens whenever Javier Hernandez takes to the field.
The strange thing that happens when this national team hero and Manchester United forward enters the field is that crime seems to stop. Crime rates in Mexico, to be precise and many believe that this correlation occurs because there are just too many people in Mexico who would rather see the man play rather than break into someone’s car.
About the only other thing more bizarre is that, statistically speaking, more pregnant women seem to go into labor when Hernandez strikes across the field.
So, while Australia might have its race that brings the nation to a near halt, they can keep it. They got nothing on the star striker Javier Hernandez and his uncanny ability to lower crime rates and raise the birth rates.
And sure, while it’s not an exact science and there’s no supernatural or superstitious element attached to this phenomenon, even local law has to admit that when their boy takes the field – criminals in Mexico seem to want to take a break.

Less than a month removed from earning 32 million in a May 5th clash with Miguel Cotto, Mayweather faces spending the next 90 days in a 7-by-12 foot cell in the Las Read the rest of this entry »
The courting of Phil Jackson continues.
