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.
Aug. 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.
Aug. 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.

Genie Bouchard is on Vacation and it’s Great
At this point in her career, Genie Bouchard is probably a better model than a tennis player. The former Top 5 player in the world hasn’t won in a few years, but she’s winning monthly on Instagram. And these new vacation photos are winning yet again.

Lindsey Vonn: This Will be My Final Season
Lindsey Vonn said Thursday that the 2018- 19 season will definitely be her final race, even if she does not break the World Cup wins. Vonn has 82 victories, four shy of Stenmark’s record.
“If I get it [the record], that would be a dream come true,” Lindsey Vonn said before a speaking event for Chase in Manhattan. “If I don’t, I think I’ve had an incredibly successful career no matter what. I’m still the all-time winningest female skier.”

Michelle Waterson vs. Felice Herrig UFC 229 Media Day Staredown
UFC 229 is almost here and ever though McGregor and Nurmagomedov are getting all the attention, there’s a Women’s Strawweight fight on the Main card that deserves your attention. Michelle Waterson vs Felice Herrig. Felice, of course, is a former Fitness Gurls cover model, but the Karate Hottie is a great fighter and quiet the smokeshow as well. We love beautiful/hot woman who can throwdown and kick ass. Watch the staredown below.
