The Seattle Seahawks beat the hapless San Francisco 49ers, 24-0, bringing the Niners losing streak to 7 games. Okay, I didn’t watch this game, because I was playing MLB Power Pros on my Wii. This game is awesome, if only because the video game version of Hideki Okajima of the Boston Red Sox does the exact same little “look-away” thing that the real Okajima does when he pitches. Also, because video-game D-Wright’s eyes are so very blue.
Ladies… favorite Dustin Pedroia won the AL Rookie of the Year. I’m sure J-Money & Texas Gal are happy about that. Pedroia hit .317, with 8 HRs and 50 RBI in 139 games. Ryan Braun of the Milwaukee Brewers picked it up in the NL. Braun hit .324, with 34 HRs and 97 RBI in 113 games.
Justin Timberlake will be hosting the PGA tour stop in Las Vegas in 2008, and the tournament will be renamed the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospital for Children Open. And yes, I only wrote about this so I could post that picture of Justin.
Fievel and the Yankees agree on a new contract: $52 million/4 years. Mets fans breathe a sigh of release. Don’t get me wrong, Fievel’s a good player and all, but I read that the Mets wanted to offer more than that, and I know it’d be guaranteed to be a move that blew up in their faces. Like it’s happened so many times before.
Roger Federer was upset by Fernando Gonzalez at the Masters Cup yesterday. It marks the first time in 4+ years that Federer lost in consecutive matches. Andy Roddick beat Nicolay Davydenko in the round-robin tournament. In related news, Federer has said he wants Brad Pitt to play him in his life story, if a movie is ever made.
The Minnesota Vikings’ Adrian Peterson was hurt in Sunday’s game, and will miss at least one game, with a torn ligament. I feel like this is all my fault! I bought 289’s Purple Jesus shirt on Friday, and two days later he gets hurt? I’m so sorry, AP. I should’ve known better than to spread any of my bad luck your way.
