Expos Moving To D.C.?

According to two baseball officials, Bud Selig will likely announce that the Montreal Expos will move to Washington D.C. next year with the approval of funds. Selig said that this move might be a temporary solution but Washington is already looking to build a new ballpark. The likely owner of the team would be the Baltimore Orioles owner Peter Angelos. The highest ranked official told The Associated Press that the deal would be finalized around a week so they could move them next year. The proposed making of a new ballpark might be built around the area of Dulles International Airport, about 60 miles from Camden Yards. This total project will cost more than $450 million dollars.

Bonds gets 700

Barry Bonds joined an exclusive club last night as he hit his 700th homerun. The 42 year old Bonds is now just 14 homers away from all time great Babe Ruth and is just 55 homers away from Hank Aaron, the all time homerun leader. If Bonds keeps putting up these amazing numbers, he should become the all time homerun leader early in the 2006 season.

A Great Opener

The NFL season started with a bang as the Patriots beat the Colts 27-24. Colts' kicker Mike Vanderjagt missed the what would have been game tying field goal with 47 seconds left in the game. Vanderjagt had made a NFL record 42 straight field goals before missing this one.

Tom Brady looked great throwing for 335 yards and 3 touchdowns. Corey Dillion rushed for 86 yards on 15 carries.

The Colts shot themselves in the foot during this game when they turned the ball over 3 times in the red zone.

The Colts again proved that they are not yet a great NFL football team. This game was theirs' for the taking and they let it slip out of their hands.

NFL Season Opener

The NFL season starts tonight with the New England Patriots going against the Colts. These teams met last year in the AFC Championship game. The Patriots won it and went on to win the Super Bowl. The Patriots added Corey Dillon to the mix in the offseason to make themselves even better. The Colts will be looking to avenge that 28-14 loss they suffered in Foxboro last playoffs. It should be a great start to the NFL season.

He's Back!

Deion Sanders is officially coming back to NFL after passing his physical on Tuesday. He signed a one year deal worth about 1.5 million with the Baltimore Ravens. Deion last played in the NFL in 2000 when he was with the Washington Redskins. He is highly regarded as one of the best cover cornerbacks ever. He has won 2 superbowls and has scored 15 touchdowns in his career. He is 37 years old now, maybe past his prime but he should still make an impact with the Ravens. Baltimore is hoping he can be the final piece to them winning the Super Bowl once again. Here is what "Primetime" said to the media after Wednesday's practice.

"I prepare to win, I prepare to dominate, I prepare to conquer," Sanders said among his opening statements. "I prepare to win it all, and that's one of the reasons I'm here."
 

Canada Trumps USA

Canada beat USA 2-1 in the World Cup of Hockey on Tuesday night. It was the opening game for both teams.

Martin St. Louis had a goal and an assist to lead Canada. Joe Sakic also scored for Canada to secure the victory. Bill Guerin scored the lone goal for USA.

Both goalies looked great in this game. Martin Brodeur was incredible for Canada and even though Robert Esche took the loss for USA, he too looked great.

This was a great game. It was a hard hitting defensive affair. Even Mario Lemieux went after Steve Konowalchuk during this game. This was a great way to start off the tournament even though the Americans took the loss.
