January Sports Month

The Arizona Cardinals beat the Philadelphia Eagles 32-25 today to advance to their first superbowl ever.  This was a surprise to the football world because the Cardinals were not expected to go this deep into the playoffs and no one thought they would make it to the superbowl.  But they played extremely well including 3 touchdown catches from Larry Fitzgerald, who is now regarded as one of the five beLarry Fitzgeraldst receivers in the game today.  Playing in the NFC West, the Cardinals are hardly challenged in their own division with thier schedule including 2 games against Seattle, San Francisco, and St. Louis(All of whom have lower than .500 winning percentages).  But they proved to be one of the top two teams in the National Football Team by advancing to the big game.  The Cardinals have a balanced offensive attack that they utilize extremely well.  Their receivers, Larry Fitzgerald, Anquan Boldin, and Jerheme Urban are all sure-handed and fast, but their running backs really bolster their team.  Tim Hightower, Edgerrin James, and JJ Arrington split the load on the ground and keep their offense moving.  Their defense plays very well together and who could forget their reborn quarterback Kurt Warner?  It is going to take a good team to have a great game in the super bowl if they want to beat this Arizona team!Kurt Warner

In the other game on Sunday, Baltimore was playing Pittsburgh for the third time this season, the previous two won by the Steelers.  Regarded as one of the best if not the best defenses in the NFL, Baltimore has been playing well lately, largely due to the success of their rookie QB, Joe Flacco.  Pittsburgh has arguably the best all-around team, but they will have to beat Baltimore and a surging Arizona team to prove that they really are the best.Pittsburgh vs. Baltimore

The NBA is also in full swing at the moment, but most of the league is being dominated by a handful of teams, the Lakers, Celtics, Magic, Cavaliers, and a few others, while the rest of the league is just full of bad teams.

College basketball is rolling as well, with the conference seasons just getting underway, and upsets seem to happen almost every day!  Davidson guard Stephen Curry.

It’s a great time to be a sports fan with all of these great sporting events taking place and all these incredible teams and athletes putting on a show for us every night!
