"Manager of the year is going to be a TOUGH pick in the AL. It could be Mike Scioscia, Buck Showalter or Ned Yost. My choice is SCIOSCIA."  -Dick Vitale

Week of September 15, 2014

Each week I will write about the world of sports:

*How can Ray Rice look in the mirror and call himself a man? He is totally gutless. What is his wife's family thinking? Rice belongs in jail!

*Coach K has brought such pride to wearing a USA uniform. Congrats to the American squad for winning the FIBA tournament. 

*The Phoenix Mercury won the WNBA title by sweeping the Chicago Sky. The Mercury have quite the dynamic duo in Brittney Griner and Diana Taurasi, though Griner was hurt and missed the final game of the series. 

*What has happened to the NFL NY Giants? 0-2and really struggling, baby.

*What about a tip of the hat to Boston College with a big W over Southern Cal. UCLA found a way to win again vs Texas!

*Many of you just don't get it. Nobody says Floyd Mayweather is an angel, and his actions are absurd, but as a boxer he is an all-time great.

*Virginia and East Carolina came up with quality W's over Louisville and, yes, Virginia Tech, who last week stunned the Buckeyes.
