Sports Unleashed is back after a brief layoff and boy do they have a lot to discuss this week. We get back to some NFL talk, toss out our ideas regarding the MLB All Star Game & throw in some Women’s soccer.
They swing things off first with some MLB All Star Game analysis. The dominant NL pitchers were showcased on Tuesday’s game and the powerful AL hitters could do nothing but sit back and swing at air. Plus, how relevant is the MLB Home Run Derby these days? How exciting can a 3-hour home run competition actually be? I mean, come on! Also, the All Star teams boasted a huge roster this year consisting of 83 players total. This is just ridiculous. No shows from players. Players dropping out left & right. We air our thoughts about what needs to change.
With the end of the NFL Lockout looming and with a free agency free-for-all around the corner, which teams are a few key players away from being contenders? We scan the league, starting in the NFC. We single out San Francisco and Arizona specifically. Jump over to the AFC where we examine the Raiders, Chiefs, and Dolphins. A very intriguing division is the AFC South in our minds.
Finally, the USA Women’s Soccer Team is headed to the World Cup Final. After a somewhat disappointing appearance from the Men’s National Team in South Africa, we look to the ladies of the grass to deliver that American spirit and pride on Sunday. Let’s see what the ladies of the red, white, and blue can do!!
