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.

Ronda Rousey looks like a complete bad-ass squaring off with NBA 7-footer Joel Embiid at San Diego Comic-Con 2018. Ronda Rousey might have a Raw Women’s Championship Match against Alexa Bliss at SummerSlam in Brooklyn, but it looks like she can hold her own again anyone.

#Body10 will hit newsstands June 29th // If you would’ve asked me almost six years ago that I would be wearing a robe and one of the athletes in the @espn #Body10 #BodyIssue I would have said no way! I’ve always enjoyed this issue the most because I admired and looked up to the athletes who were sending the message “strong is sexy.” The women in the @WWE have fought tirelessly for years now to be considered more than just “eye candy,” more than just an “attraction,” but for opportunities to show the world we are athletes and show stealers just like the men anywhere. I’m on a mission and one of my bucket list goals was to have the opportunity to be in this issue so it’s one part pinch me moment and second part another reason why the women’s evolution is continuing to make an impact on all fronts around the world. Being able to feel strong, sexy and comfortable in my own skin is empowering and I hope this helps others to feel the same 👊🏻 Photo credit: @nicklaham @espnw
