What’s Yappen’ Now in Sports Tickets – Wierd Week

by on July 5, 2009 updated July 5, 2009

 A quick overview of what’s going on.

Bashed fenders were the order of the day at Daytona as Tony Stewart claimed a win. Kyle Busch took a big bite out of the wall in the final lap, giving Stewart the top spot. It’s another incident in a restrictor plate race, which generally packs everyone into a tight group, making manuevering very dangerous. NASCAR now has more to think about.

Tragedy for an NFL alumnus as Steve McNair is shot to death. No pertinent or concrete info as of yet so speculation runs rampant. McNair is best remembered for his stint with the Titans where he came within a yard or so of forcing overtime in the Super Bowl.

Wimbledon has been very competitive. Today Andy Roddick and Roger Federer will play for all the marbles in what should be a classic matchup.

Michael Jackson is still dead and concert tickets will never be the same.

Tiger Woods has rebounded and is tied for the lead with Anthony Kim at the AT & T National. Kim has played well, coming back from adversity to put himself in position to beat the world’s greatest golfer. Now we’ll see if he’s got the moxie to finish him off.  

 In boxing news, Anselmo Moreno has retained his title with a victory over Frenchie Mayhar Monshipour. No surprise there.

 Last but not least the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox rivalry could hit a fever pitch in the 2009 MLB season. Only one game, count ‘em one, seperates the Yanks and Sox in the American League East. The last half of the season will be a brutal slugfest, with no prisoners taken, and bloodletting and carnage as the major baseball headlines. Or maybe not (but I hope so.)
