On Paper
English Premiership Championship

Manchester City is poised to win it’s first Barclay’s Premiership title and it’s first league title since 1968! On paper, it is very unlikely they can lose their grasp on the trophy. They face off against the 17th place Queens Park Rangers who are trying to hold a spot in the top division. QPR holds a two point lead on the Bolton Wanderers, who face Stoke City today. They have had a stunning year, but still are going to need goal difference to separate them from Manchester United. Currently they hold an 8 goal lead, and I can’t imagine United dismissing that advantage no matter how great their form. ManCity looks to continue their amazing home performance, unbeaten in their last 18 matches in league play. It seems Roberto Mancini will have the last laugh over Sir Alex Ferguson and the Red Devils.

Upset Potential

Bryce Harper

“Stop hitting yourself, stop hitting yourself” is usually accompanied by an older brother using his little brother’s own hand to pummel himself…but this time this is a very literal statement. Bryce Harper, quit hitting yourself! The 19yr old Major Leaguer decided to take out his frustration on himself, with a bat. He, seemingly, has the world on his shoulders with the expectations of greatness. Yet, he has conducted his stint in the spotlight with professionalism until Friday against the Reds. He grounded out in the 7th and went in to the tunnel to take some frustration out with his bat against the wall. At some point during his youthful rage, the bat bounced back and hit him in the eye. This behavior not only caused 10 stitches, but may have shown a ***** in the armor.

Don’t Bother

Kevin Na’s “routine”

The leader going into today’s final round of the The Player’s Championship is Kevin Na, but the talk in the golf world is about what happens before he strikes the ball. Don’t bother trying to understand it. Amateur golfers are told all the time about routines, but Na’s pre shot antics are anything but routine. If he continues his success with this action then I can assure you we will see people at our local courses mimicking his “pull the trigger” set up!
