What Were Some of Your Most Memorable Sports Moments of 2007? December 31, 2007

As the new year approaches, many sports sites have been writing about the most memorable sports moments of 2007.  My most memorable sports moment of 2007 would have to be the Michael Vick fiasco.  I just couldn’t believe such a young, talented player like that could throw his career away. I just can’t figure out why he would decide to organize a dog fighting ring and risk losing his freedom, career, and respect. 

 Another memorable moment, and a much more happier one at that,  would have to be the New England Patriots going undefeated this year. Although they had their fair share of controversy, that was a remarkable achievement by the Pats. Thanks to the Pats, 2007 marked the end of the ’72 Dolphins hating on any team that came close to their sacred record.

2007 gave us sports fans some very memorable moments.  Some were good, and some were absolutely awful.  What were some of your most memorable sports moments of 2007?

Bob Sanders Gets a Well Deserved Payday December 29, 2007

Bob SandersOn Friday, Indianapolis Colt’s safety Bob Sanders signed a five-year, $37.5 million contract extension, making him the highest paid safety in the NFL. The safety is expected to receive $20 million in guaranteed money. Sanders is the machine that drives the Colt’s defense and is the main reason why the Colts are ranked #1 in the NFL against the pass. 

Standing only 5’8”, Sanders more than makes up for his height with his hard hits and explosiveness against the run, and has shown improvement against the pass.  Players are starting to fear him, and his style of play rubs off on his teammates.  Although he may not regarded as the best safety in the NFL hands down, it’s only a matter of time.

I’ve always cringed at Shaq shooting free throws because of that horrible hitch in his shot.  Well, there’s a new owner of the NBA’s worst free throw shot, and his name is Chuck Hayes.

 

Your Call: Bad Sportsmanship? December 27, 2007

During the holidays, I always try to check out some high school basketball tournaments.  Yesterday, I went to a high school girl’s basketball tournament. I arrived late to the game I had planned to watch, as it was already halftime.  The game featured a Division IV team which we will call Team Red, facing a Division I team that we’ll call Team Blue.  As I mentioned before, I arrived to the game at half time.  Team Blue was destroying Team Red 46-5.

At the start of the 2nd half, I noticed Team Blue ran a full court press against Team Red and kept some of their starters in.  They continued to run the full court press the entire 2nd half.  When it was all said it done, Team Blue defeated Team Red with a score of 83-16. There seemed to be no ill will between the coaches and the teams as they shook hands at the end of the game, and no words were exchanged.

So here is the question. Was it bad sportsmanship for Team Blue to continue to run a full court press with most of their starters in the game, or should they have taken the full court press off and not run the score up on Team Red?  Some argue that it’s perfectly fine to continue to run the press because it sends a message to other teams in the tournament. Others however, firmly believe that starters should be taken out, and a full court press should no longer be implemented when the game is out of reach. This is something many high school basketball fans, as well as coaches, have continued to disagree on. It’s Your Call

What better way to celebrate Christmas Day than with a classic commercial of Micheal Jordan dominating Santa Clause in a game of one on one?

Merry Christmas!
