On Wednesday morning, Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III underwent surgery to repair torn ligaments in his knee. His recovery time is expected to be six to eight months, which means he should be ready for the start of the 2013 season. But will he be the same?
On Wednesday, baseball's Hall of Fame will announce the players who comprise the 2013 class of inductees—or they will announce that no one has surpassed the 75 percent voting mark required for induction. Which would be remarkable, given that some of the greatest players ever to step on a baseball diamond are on the ballot this year. So why the uncertainty? Steroids, of course.
The Triad High School football team in Klamath Falls, Oregon, defeated Elkton High by a score of 106-66, a combined—and astounding—172 points, setting a new state record. It looks more like a basketball score than football, as Triad scored touchdowns on 16 out of 17 possessions. The only time they didn't score was on their final possession, when they had the ball inside the Elkton 1-yard line.
"We were at the 1-foot line and took a knee on the last four plays," Triad coach Kyle Petrik told The Oregonian. "We were hoping to show some class."
On Wednesday it became official: Miguel Cabrera is the first player to win baseball's Triple Crown since Carl Yastrzemski in 1967. Cabrera finished with a .330 batting average, 44 home runs and 139 RBIs, also leading his Detroit Tigers to the American League Central Division championship. Congratulations to Cabrera—anytime achievement that hasn't been done in 45 years deserves applause. So what comes next: a pitcher winning 30 games, a 57-game hitting streak or a .400 average?
Today may be the day that we find out which of those statements will turn out correct. The NHL preseason has already been cancelled, and the lockout is about to enter its third week. Stunningly, today is the first time the players and the owners have even met to discuss anything since September 15.
Our (three-week-) long national nightmare is over: the real referees are back. Late Wednesday night, the league and the union reached an agreement, and it looks like NFL fans can go back to yelling at an entirely different group of men in striped shirts for making decisions they disagree with. Yay!
Yesterday we asked you about the American League, where all three divisions are locked in close fights for first place. In the National League, however, the three division leaders each have sizable advantages. But the wild card? That's a different story.
