Welcome back to TODAY’S SPORTS UPDATE!!!! YEAH! I’m Sebastian Maldonado finally back with the hottest news in sports. Congratulations to the Tar Heels for winning the NCAA tournament. Roy Williams has finally won “the big one”!
The rivalry is back! The Yankees won the series 2-1, with impressive outings from Randy Johnson and Carl Pavano. However, it’s panic time in New York regarding one of the best closers of this generation; Mariano Rivera has blown two saves in a row. Yet, who else should take the blame? Is A-Rod responsible for that blown hopper? Is Posada responsible for not coming through in the clutch? The Red Sox avoided a sweep, but there is concern for manager Terry Francona, who was hospitalized before the game. Details have not been released at this time. What is his condition? In other baseball news, the Braves defeated the Marlins 2-1 in 13 innings. Both teams used a combined total of 13 pitchers. Good news or bad news for the NL East? You decide.
Trouble in Cleveland; the Cavs are slipping, and LeBron isn’t happy. They could lose their spot to the Nets, a team that came from the ashes of a bad offseason. Could the New Jersey Nets make the playoffs? It is a very strong possibility since they are only 2.5 games behind. Is their hope for the Jersey faithful? Plus, I hate to say I told you so, but didn’t I say that the Lakers would NOT make the playoffs.
The NFL draft is coming in mid-April, with the 49ers getting the first pick. Who will become the first pick of this year’s NFL draft? In other football news, LB Tedy Bruschi is considering not playing next season. How is his condition? Well, my prayers are with the Super Bowl winner because no good player should go out like this.
Well, that’s it for today, but before I go, it is a reminder that Bernie Williams is in the last year of his contract. It is possible that Bernie might retire after this season. So, I will re-release one of the best articles to be written from yours truly: BERNIE. I’m doing this just in case some of you deleted it. Besides, it will have a fresh look, and it’s a keeper. Until then, later you KNUCKLEHEADS!!!
