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.

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.”

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.

Published

Happy birthday to one of our favorite women, former WWE Superstar, Eva Marie. She was one of the most attractive and controversial superstars in WWE history, but she has been able to parlay that into a huge clothing career as well as other businesses. For women after the WWE, maybe only Trish Status can compare to the success Eva Marie has gotten after completely leaving WWE. So happy birthday Eva Marie, we love and you rock!

Happy Birthday America! 🇺🇸And while posing for a photo shoot in a bikini isn't what it means to be patriotic, It's an attention grabber and will get a larger portion of people to see the message below 😜😝 – I'm proud to be an #American. I'm proud of the core principles this nation was founded on and what this country is capable of achieving. We are not a perfect nation, but we have the potential to achieve a greatness unparalleled in the history of the planet. In this age where it's highly fashionable to #America bash, I chose to proudly declare my #love for my country, its people, the positive things it represents, and work towards improving its short comings. Patriotism is expressed in many different forms, it transcends political party lines, religious beliefs, ancestral countries of origin, or any of the other things that we are told divide us. We are not divided, we are one, we are Americans and what makes our country great is our ability to voice our differences with the knowledge that while we may not agree with one another, we would all fight tooth and nail to protect each other's right to express those beliefs. – And I want to give a special and truly heart felt Thank you to all the men and women of the United States Armed Forces who sacrifice and serve to protect the freedoms we enjoy at home. You are greatly appreciated. Happy 4th of July Everyone 🇺🇸😘 –
