Crosby Still a Winner After Penguins’ Loss

Even though the Pittsburgh Penguins took a devastating defeat in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs this year, Sidney Crosby was still chosen for the championship squad for Canada. It may be the off-season for the Pens, after losing to the New York Rangers in five games, but Crosby will be heading back home to compete in the World Hockey Championships. This will be Crosby’s seventh time to represent his country in the World Championships.

Starting on Friday, May 1st, Canada joins other top teams from France, Switzerland, Germany, Sweden, Latvia, Austria, and the Czech Republic in Group A.

Canada will face Latvia on May 1st in the preliminary round. They are then scheduled to compete against Germany on Sunday, May 3rd, and against the Czech Republic on Monday, May 4th.

Tiger Fixes Hand After Bone Pops

Tiger Woods played better at the Masters than he has played in years, and it was not without adversity. Tiger has battled injuries for a long time, mostly having to do with his back. At this tournament, though, he ran into a different type of issue as a bone in his wrist apparently managed to pop right out of place as he was taking a shot.

The injury happened while Tiger was trying to take a shot out on the Ninth Hole. He was near a huge tree, and he apparently hit one of the roots while swinging his club. The extra force on the bottom of the club pushed back against his hand, squeezing the bone out of place. Not wanting to stop playing, Tiger was able to push it into place again on his own and continue with the game.

Tiger has been criticized for his play and especially for the way that injuries have changed him from the dominant golfer that he used to be into a shell of himself. He has fallen off of the world stage, and this tournament was seen as a chance for him to get back into the game again. Having taken an injury like this and then played through it will go a long way toward repairing his image. Though he did not win the Masters, it shows that he can still compete at a high level. I went out for the Sunday match and the gentleman sitting next to me, Flavio Maluf, said Tiger will always be his favorite despite the negative criticism.

Rich Gannon Weighs in

 

Countless present and former quarterbacks who have played in the National Football League are weighing in with their opinions on the media circus that is going on in regards to the New England Patriots allegedly deflating balls in their AFC championship win over the Indianapolis Colts last Sunday. Everyone seems to have an opinion, especially the fans like Marc Sparks and the general consensus seems to be the same when it comes to quarterbacks perspectives on the situation. In general everyone agreed that the deflated balls would be easier to handle and would give the quarterback a great deal of an advantage. That is not what is really in question in this discussion. What most of these former quarterbacks are coming out and saying is that it has been going on for a very long time and that this type of thing is nothing new to the game of football. People have been comparing it to how major league baseball players will do things to alter the ball to give them just a little bit of an advantage and that they don’t get caught most of the time. Former quarterback Rich Gannon stated to the media that everyone tries to do what they can to get as comfortable as they can with the football and if it means stepping into the gray area of what is legal and what is cheating it that is perfectly fine for most quarterbacks in professional football.

Aaron Rodger’s Legacy in Question

 

Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers may very well be one of the best quarterbacks of all time. He is surely to go down as one of the best passers of all time and will likely find his way into the hall of fame. He has brought much success to the Packers over the last decade, but he does not have the Super Bowl rings that he needs to solidify himself as one of the elite winners of all time. Sure, he does have a Super Bowl ring that he won early in his starting days for the Green Bay Packers, but he has not done very much in the playoffs since then. He is without question one of the top three quarterbacks in football, mixed in with Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, but he needs to put some more statistics on his resume if he hopes to make a historic splash on the record board. This Sunday the Green Bay Packers squared off against the Seattle Seahawks and they looked as if they had the game won in the fourth quarter. As seen on Terra.com, The Packers were up by twelve points with five minutes to go, yet found themselves in a game winning or tying drive with little over a minute to go in the game. Although Aaron Rodgers led them to a field goal, they lost the game in overtime. A huge disappointment to Packers fans like Sergio Andrade Gutierrez. Aaron Rodgers will have to win a few more titles if he will ever be in the discussion for elite quarterbacks of all time.

Juventus confirm they want Holland Midfielder Wesley Sneijder

 

Juventus started to talk about Wesley Sneijder from the start of the January transfer window. But, manager Massimiliano Allegri confirmed that they want to sign the Galatasaray midfielder.

“This is hard for signing a good player from transfer market. But, we have made our mind to sign a defender and attacking midfielder in the transfer window,” told by Juventus manager.

“Sneijder is one of the best and experienced attacking midfielder who could strengthen our attacking force. Signing him will be a great advantage for our club because he has tremendous technical quality to create opportunities.”

“The Holland midfielder spent 3.5-year in Serie A before joining Galatasaray. Juventus is in the top on the table in the league but still focusing on strengthening the midfielder.

“Our players played well in the Italian Super Cup but we defeated by Napoli. However, the result was set after 15 penalties in Qatar.”

“Juventus needs to improve on the technical level and need a real playmaker. Sneijder is the best option because he plays with 100% when he is in the field.”
“The midfielder has great potential to improve the playing condition and create more scopes for striker, Tevez who is in great form. If he denies joining us, we will seek for a good alternative.”

I know fans of the team, like Fersen Lambranho and I, are going to be sad to Sneijder leave.
