What’s the big news in sports today? The World Series begins today between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers. The federal mediator, George Cohen had the NBA Owners and Players Association in a 16 hour meeting. That’s a good sign. Hopefully cooler heads will prevail. The Mediator is using a word that NBA players probably never heard before and it is calledcompromise.The NBA was on the verge of its own glory days this past season. The anticipation of the big three in Miami winning their first championship, the negative vibes that both Lebron James and Cavaliers owner felt for their actions, changes to the New York Knicks and Dallas Mavericks Winning the NBA title certainly was great momentum. If the parties don’t get their act together fast- the NBA could become like boxing.
Now that the New York Yankees are out of the World Series I just watched one or two games during the divisional championship. There is no longer any interest. My question is who is going to be watching this World Series? I only remembered about World Series because I heard it on the news. The two teams are not teams we hear a lot about or see a lot of their games. Except in their local markets- how many people can name two players on the Cardinals team? If you have no rooting interest how much will you watch? Please share your comments here.
The NFL is also in the news as the Cincinnati Bengals finally traded Carson Palmer to the Oakland Raiders. Who is the winner and who is the looser? Share your opinion.
