Super Bowl ring
Major League Baseball had four games in the National League swinging their bats as the Atlanta Braves were trounced by the Cincinnati Reds 6-3 as Devin Mesoraco’s grand slam in the 6th inning proved to be the key to victory, the San Diego Padres clobbered the New York Mets 11-5 as Nick Hundley launched a homerun, the San Francisco Giants literally spanked the Miami Marlins like they stole some fish 14-7 as Giancarlo Stanton belted his 10th homer and the Washington Nationals put up 9 runs, but the problem was the Philadelphia Phillies put up 10 and got the win as Ty Wigginton went yard.
For your London Summer Olympic News, General Electric extended its sponsorship with the U.S. Olympic Committee through 2020 in a deal that provides U.S. team doctors with groundbreaking technology to manage the health care of the athletes, Elmway Participacoes is disputing ownership of the land where the 2016 Olympic golf course is proposed to be built has asked a judge to annul all contracts and block construction on the land until a higher court decides who owns the land and finally, the race for the 2020 Olympics will come down to a contest between Madrid, Tokyo and Istanbul after the International Olympic Committee trimmed the field earlier this week and again rejecting Doha's bid to take the Games to tiny Qatar.
For your NFL Quick Hits, NFL players union chief DeMaurice Smith says his group's claim of collusion will stand up in court and the NFL issued a statement saying "the union's claims have absolutely no merit and we fully expect them to be dismissed”, New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks fractured his right foot Thursday during the team's second organized team activity of the offseason, the team announced, James Harrison of the Pittsburgh Steelers, who have been fined hundreds of thousands of dollars for illegal hits and really doesn’t care for NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says the NFL's players stand to benefit from Jonathan Vilma's defamation lawsuit against Goodell, even if the New Orleans Saints linebacker loses his fight and stated “it’s really a win-win, whether he wins the case or if he loses it….if he loses it, it shows that Goodell does have too much power and if he wins it, it opens up the floodgates”, Harris County Sports Convention Corporation, located in Houston, TX, chairman Edgar Colon said the county and Reliant Park plan to bid on the 2017 Super Bowl, Tim Tebow has an impressive résumé that includes a state championship in high school, two national championships in college to go along with his Heisman trophy and a playoff win in the NFL, however comma he experienced a football first Thursday as he wrapped up his first week as a special-teams player. In addition, Marc Sanchez looked sharp at quarterback yesterday but Tim Tebow was intercepted twice and I imagine training camp will be very, very interesting, Lawrence Taylor’s Super Bowl ring that was auctioned off last week was bought by another star who had his legal moments as Charlie Sheen, a noted sport enthusiast, purchased the ring for $230,000 and finally, New England Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco said he was "not trippin' " about losing his wallet, credit cards, license and iPod stolen when someone broke into his SUV Wednesday, but was inconsolable about his Starbucks gold card being stolen and his posted video tirade, Ochocinco mentioned I-hop where he ate breakfast and of course the aforementioned Starbucks card as he continues his marketing genius…..look out for future sponsorships.
