St-Pierre defends title against Koscheck in UFC 124
Georges St-Pierre utilized his excellent left jab and inside leg kicks to retain the UFC Welterweight Championship with a unanimous decision over Josh Koshcheck at the Bell Centre in Montreal Canada on Dec. 11th in UFC 124. St-Pierre controlled and dictated the fight from the outset and won it mainly with his boxing skills by scores of 50-45 across the board. The fight was a rematch of their UFC 74 bout which St-Pierre also won by unanimous decision. Koshcheck did well to keep it a stand-up battle as he thwarted most of St-Pierre’s takedown attempts, but he didn’t have an ...
Drew Brees named Sports Illustrated’s player of year
The famous American sports magazine Sports Illustrated has named New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees as its sportsman of the year because of the Super Bowl championship that he won on the field as well as the charity work he does off of the field.

Arizona vs San Francisco – Monday Night Football
The NFL’s Monday night Football game for week 12 will feature the San Francisco 49ers heading over to Arizona to take on the Cardinals in an NFC West matchup.

Arizona’s record comes as a surprise to ...
Eric Hinske’s Massive Back Tattoo
Here in Chicago we've long known that when players leave and go on to other cities and other teams, it's usually to do something good. And then we complain about getting rid of said player on sports radios and blogs. Eric Hinske is one of those guys. Hinske was another in a long list of Cubs prospects that never really got a chance here. He was traded for Miguel Cairo (Nice!) and went on to win Rookie of the Year in 2002. He's also been to 3 World Series and won twice. He's built a decent career, as well as an ...
