Good Morning Friends!
Another Saturday has arrived, meaning we are now another week closer to our favorite time of the year, the start of college football season. At 12:05 eastern we will be exactly 112 days, or 16 weeks, away from the kickoff for the Hawkeyes, with the actual start two days earlier on that Thursday night. To get you a bit into football mood, I will include over the next several weeks highlight videos of soon-to-be Hawkeye freshman. We start this week with running back/kick returner Jordan Canzeri.
Back to current sporting events, a quiet night on the ice, but not on the hardwood, as the Grizzlies held home court with a 95-83 win to force game 7 back in OKC, at 3:30 Sunday. There was, however, sad news out of the NHL, as NY Ranger Derek Boogaard was found dead in his Minneapolis apartment. He was just 28. No official word on a cause at this time. The East final gets under way in Boston tonight at 8:00 pm, on Versus.
Look at that - the weekend arrives, and sure enough, Verlander took another no-hitter into the 6th, and ended up 3 hitting the Royals in the 3-1 Tiger win. The Red Sox held off the Yankees 5-4 to win game 1 of the 2nd best rivalry in baseball, game 2 tonight at 7:00 on Fox. The Dodgers got another great effort from Koufax Light in the 4-3 Dodger win over the DBacks. A win tonight will have the Bums back to .500 and possibly within 1.5 games of the West lead. Almost entirely day baseball today, the only exceptions are the game in the Bronx and the game in Wrigley.
All right my friends, I hope your weekend is off to a good start - enjoy the sporting events on a ball field or tv near you!
