What to Watch Sports Week – August 29-September 3

Published

on

Sox and Yanks, US Open Tennis, and FedEx Cup play dominate the week of August 29 to September 3. What follows is a rundown of this week’s major events.

Jets v GiantAug. 29 – Are you ready for some football? Crappy preseason football, that is. Nonetheless, it is a pretty interesting New York rivalry game that should be entertaining to watch (one reason – Rex Ryan). Mark Sanchez looks to lead the Jets to another successful postseason appearance while Eli Manning and the Giants look to sort things out to improve upon their lackluster 2010 season.

Aug. 31 – The Sox and Yanks have a rivalry going back for ages, and their games are always fun to watch even if you are not interested in baseball all that much (remember when Pedro Martinez head slammed Don Zimmer to the ground one game? Ah, the good old days…). Not only is it a great rivalry, but both teams are playing extremely well this season and should compete amongst one another to represent the American League in the 2011 World Series. Key players to watch: Curtis Granderson and Adrian Gonzalez.

US OpenAug. 29 – The US Open marks the final major of the year for professional tennis, which means it is your last opportunity to catch some great tennis action amongst the best players tennis has to offer. The top seeds going into the tournament are Novak Djokovic (you may remember him for impersonating Maria Sharapova quite a few times) and Caroline Wozniaki (basically a fill-in until Serena or Venus Williams gets healthier). A player to watch on the men’s side is John Isner, a 7-footer from America who has one of the best serves in tennis.

Sept. 1 – you are looking for something to watch going into the weekend, consider trying the PGA Tour’s Deutsche Bank Championship. It is part of the FedEx Cup playoffs, a four week event where pro golfers compete for $10 million just for swinging some clubs around a course. If you are looking for a player to watch, consider Dustin Johnson, another tall American player who can drive the golf ball practically a mile long. The finishes to these tournaments are always close and competitive, so you won’t be wasting your time too much by checking out the golf action starting this Friday.

AJ Lee was the Queen of the ring when she was at the WWE. She was a 3-time Divas Champion and held that title for over 406 consecutive days. She also won the Slammy Award for Diva of the Year in 2012 and 2014 and was voted Woman of the Year by readers of Pro Wrestling Illustrated from 2012 to 2014. We love AJ, cause she was like the hot ex-girlfriend that’s a little on the crazy side. Beautiful and crazy is a hella good combo.

Paige Spiranac Woman of the Moment

Published

on

Paige Spiranac has only had mild success during her short time as a professional golfer, but she has quickly become one of the biggest names in the sport. You only have to take a quick look at her Instagram account to see why she has become so popular. Spiranac has amassed more than 1.3 million followers on social media primarily due to her looks, but she is using her newfound fame to support several good causes.

The sport of golf has a tendency to take itself too seriously, but the same can’t be said about Paige Spiranac. She is not afraid to make a goofy video or strike a model pose on the golf course. This has helped her capture the mainstream audience that golf often ignores. This mainstream appeal has even landed her a spot in the upcoming “Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.”

This was such a hard secret to keep! But I’m so honored and humbled to be included in #SISwim 2018! This issue is about self-love, empowering women, body positivity, and encouraging everyone to be kind. Women face so much pressure every. single. day. to look, act, and talk a certain way, and it is so difficult trying to figure out what you “can” and “should” be. It’s taken a long time, but I’m proud of my body! I’m proud of who I am! I’m proud that I can be strong, smart, AND sexy! SI Swim embraces ALL women, no matter what, and just wants them to feel loved. You should feel loved and powerful and unapologetically YOU! And don’t let ANYONE tell you that you’re not perfect just the way you are. Thank you to @mj_day and the whole team for believing in me and letting me share my story. You’ve changed my outlook on life and let me know it’s okay to love my body❤️ #siswim

It has not all been easy for Spiranac. Her looks and risque photos have upset die-hard golf fans. She constantly receives death threats and other harassing remarks online. While this would upset most people, it has only pushed Spiranac to work harder. She is constantly challenging the LPGA’s sexist uniform rules by wearing short skirts and leggings during tournaments. She has also started working with CyberSmile to help end online bullying.

Paige Spiranac may not be near the top of the LPGA rankings, but she is the most important person in the sport. She may be treated like a gimmick by golf purists, but it will not stop her from trying to make the world a better place.
