It's time

I'm glad my blog has achieved more than most blogs ever will. But unfortunately, times have changed, and i have officially decided to end www.czsportsnews.blogspot.com. It will still be up, but no more posts. I haven't had the time to post anything, and i missed some very important sports moments of possibly the year. But don't worry! This may not be the last of me, as i hope some time in the future i can start a blog that reflects on not sports, but just about everything. Thanks for reading my blog!



The Cardinals win Game 7 of the World Series! This game was a little bit less exciting the Game six, but this still didn't disappoint. David Freese was the MVP, without question. He had a hitting streak, and hit the Walk-Off in Game 6. The Cardinals could have missed the playoffs if The Atlanta Braves didn't go into their slump. As for the Texas Rangers, this is the second straight year they fell short. All they can do is improve their roster, and try next season. However, congrats to all the teams who did make the playoffs, and especially the Brewers and the Diamondbacks. They weren't very good a season ago, and making the playoffs shows that they won't lay at the bottom. 


Happy Belated Birthday to my blog!

I forgot my blog's birthday was October 25th. Since it is the 28th, now its a belated birthday. Also, the blog is nearing 6000 pageviews! A Double Whammy!


Indy 500 Winner Dan Wheldon dies after car crash

Dan Wheldon, the Indy 500 winner, passed away after a horrific 15 car pile-up at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Drivers did become concerned after some cars reached speeds over 220 miles an hour. In addition, the field of cars was 34, larger than other races. Dario Franchitti won the championship, but that was completely overshadowed by the crash. J.R. Hildebrand, the driver who lost the Indy 500 to Wheldon, was also hospitalized with a concussion. Will Power, who was Dario Franchitti's greatest contender, was also involved in the crash. This was the last race for Danica Patrick, who will be moving to the Nationwide Series in NASCAR full-time and a few Sprint Cup races. Wheldon will be remembered in IndyCar and elsewhere in the sports world.


MLB Postseason

The NLCS and ALCS are set! The Brewers defeated the Diamondbacks 3-2 in extra innings. Nyjer Morgan drove in the game-winning run in the 10th inning, moving the Brewers into the NLCS. They will take on the St. Louis Cardinals, who defeated Roy Halladay 1-0. Ryan Howard struggled, and went down with an injury after he grounded out to end the game.Chris Carpenter was phenomenal, giving up a few hits only. In the AL, the Detroit Tigers defeated the New York Yankees, and will take on the Texas Rangers. Here are the brackets and my predictions

DETROIT 2, TEXAS 4 (games)



MLB Playoff Clinchers

The Tampa Bay Rays clinch the AL Wild-card spot! The Red Sox lost 4-3 to the Baltimore Orioles. Evan Longoria had 2 home runs as the Rays beat the Yankees 8-7. At the beginning of September, the Rays were 9 games behind the Red Sox. But after the Red Sox's slump, the Rays tool advantage of that.

In the NL, the Braves blow an 8and a half game lead of the St. Louis Cardinals. The Braves lost to the Phillies when Hunter Pence drove in the game-winning run. This is just as disappointing as the Red Sox, as no one could have predicted the Cardinals or the Rays would overtake the wildcard leaders. But congrats to both teams, as they look to reach the World Series. 


Fantasy Week 3 Recap and Fantasy Winners+Losers

I know i didn't do Week 2. So I'll make it up and do Week 3! So let's go review the best games of Week 3

Buffalo Bills 34, New England Patriots 31

The Bills and the Lions are the two teams that have come back from a horrid season to be undefeated. No one would have predicted the Bills would have started the season undefeated. Ryan Fitzpatrick is the leader of this team, and young talent is with him. The Bill's defense was good too, intercepting Tom Brady 4 times. Brady had 4 just all of last season.

Fantasy Winners: Ryan Fitzpatrick, Wes Welker, Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski
Fantasy Losers: None

Carolina Panthers 16, Jacksonville Jaguars 10

Blaine Gabbert got his first start, but it wasn't in the best condition. During the second quarter, rain poured down, and made the field slippery, and really muddy. But he played well despite all the mess with 139 yards, 1 TD, and 1 INT. But Cam Newton shined again, throwing the game-winning TD to Greg Olsen, the former Chicago Bear.

Fantasy Winners: Greg Olsen, Cam Newton, Maurice Jones-Drew
Fantasy losers: None

Detroit Lions 26, Minnesota Vikings 23

The Detroit Lions keep rolling, winning all 4 preseason games and the first 3 regular season games. The Minnesota Vikings dominate the first half, but have blown it all as they lost all 3 games they played. The Vikings should be using Adrian Peterson more often, as he is incredibly strong, fast, agile, and powerful.

Fantasy Winners: Calvin Johnson Jr., Matthew Stafford
Fantasy losers: Adrian Peterson

Dallas Cowboys 18, Washington Redskins 16

Tony Romo had a punctured lung after the 49ers game. He played well against the Redskins, despite all the bad snaps. He had 255 yards and an interception. Most of this game was field goals, besides 2 touchdowns.

Fantasy Winners: Sean Lee, Felix Jones
Fantasy Losers: None
