The MLB season is officially underway and in only one week the biggest news is the attempted sale of the Miami Marlins by an owner that never really endeared himself to any city he was a part of and ever team he owned.
The MLB heads into the last weekend with plenty to play for but the Boston red Sox will be playing less for the postseason and more for a fan favourite who ends his final regular season in the league.
This coming weekend is the end of an era for the voice of the Dodgers as Vin Scully will call his last game ending the reign of the best baseball announcer of all time.
The MLB rosters have expanded as team look to catch a glimpse of their prospects and provide a boost as the postseason race heats up in the last month of the season.
A superstar from the NFL is looking to become a star in the MLB but his quest to play a second sport has been met with scepticism as his tryout looms.
Every year in the NFL there seems to be a new hot shot rookie that takes all of the headlines whether he deserves them or not. He is not necessarily the best or most talented player in the NFL or in the rookie class but he does command the most attention. Some turn out to be what was promised and others find unfortunate ends to the hype. Then there are the number of players who are surrounded by hype and never live up to it despite staying healthy and being given the opportunity.
The NFL season is in the full and so is the playoff race as the race heats up with the first teams clinching their spots in the playoffs. Week 13 saw the first playoff spots be taken as teams began clinching their divisions and other simply taking a playoff spot. It was the first week that the playoff race was to be in full focus but unfortunately it did not take the full focus.
Last week was one of the turning points in the young 2012 season and for the NFL in general as the next move would make a big difference. After a Monday Night game in Week 3 the NFL and their fans saw one of the most controversial calls in the history of the NFL. The Green Bay Packers lost the game to the Seattle Seahawks on a Hail Mary Touchdown pass that seemed more like a game ending interception.
The Sports world is continuing to roll along with midseason approaching for some and the end of the season approaching for others. The End of the Season is already here for College Football as the Bowl Season will start this weekend. With the New Mexico Bowl, Famous Idaho Potato Bowl, and the New Orleans Bowl all this Saturday the Bowl season will start with a full day of games.
The beginning of this NFL is far behind us and with the playoffs creeping up fast the trends have changed. At the beginning of the year it seemed the NFC North was unstoppable with Green Bay playing great, Chicago being their usual surprise contenders, and Detroit being the biggest surprise of the year with a great undefeated start to the season.
