So I know I’ve off the grid this week. I’ll be back business as usual starting on Monday when I return from my trip to Orlando, Florida where I was a best man for the first time in my life but there’s a lot of sports to get to today so I didn’t want to leave you stranded. Let’s jump right into it!
1) The Fight Of The Century- The dream fight of dream fights finally takes place tonight. Some say boxing is dead but whether it was in California, New York or Florida this month all I’ve heard is who do you got Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao. I don’t know if my family and I have gotten a boxing fight since Sugar Ray Leonard returned but we will seeking out MayPac tonight on our last night in Florida. As for who I have? I gotta go Money Mayweather because of his affliation with WWE. I’m a wrestling fan sucker, I know but he was a highlight of Wrestlemania 24!
2) Game 7- There really hasn’t been any series in round 1 of the NBA Playoffs that’s been worth anyone’s time except for the San Antonio Spurs and the Los Angeles Clippers. The NBA Playoffs only series to reach a seventh and deciding game finally comes to a head tonight. I’ve seen this script so many times & I just don’t see the Spurs losing game 7, even on the road.
3) NFL Draft- If there’s one draft that I really go out of my to watch it’s the NFL draft. It’s the unofficial kickoff to the NFL season and its a lot of fun now that’s it’s been spread out over a long weekend. My New York Jets continued their impressive offseason by trading up this morning to draft Baylor Quarterback Bryce Petty.
4) Rivalry Weekend- On the baseball side of things many of the greatest rivalries in the sport take the focus today as the New York Mets take on the Washington Nationals, the Detroit Tigers face off with the Kansas City Royals for the American Leagues best record and of course, it’s Yankees- Red Sox. No matter how the teams are doing there’s still nothing like Yankees- Ref Sox. I’m not a Alex Rodriguez fan but the fact that he hit his 660th career homerun tying Willie Mays for fourth all time over the big green monster in Fenway Park? That’s pretty cool to say the least!
So yes today may be one of the biggest days in sports history as with all I mentioned I didn’t even get into round 2 of the NHL playoffs or the Kentucky Derby. Whatever your sport of choice I hope you have a great time viewing it!
