:: DERRICK ROSE, NO. 1 PICK IN NBA DRAFT (Pro. Basketball)

:: SPAIN WINS EURO 2008 (Int’l Soccer)

:: WILLIAMS SISTERS ADVANCE AT WIMBLEDON (Tennis)

———-

ROSE-Y FUTURE FOR CHICAGO BULLS

The Chicago Bulls selected Derrick Rose with the no. 1 pick in the NBA Draft on Thursday night. With the pick, the Bulls put to an end the weeks of speculation about whether they would take Rose or Michael Beasley with the first overall draft pick.

Rose, a native Chicagoan, will return to his home town to play for the team he grew up watching. Home probably feels a bit different for Rose, who returned to Chicago on Friday $10 million richer, throwing out the first pitch at the Cubs-Sox game.

As expected Michael Beasley went to the Miami Heat with the second pick of the draft. There were also a number of draft day trades. The most notable trade involved the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Memphis Grizzlies, who engineered a trade to swap draft picks O.J. Mayo and Kevin Love, respectively.

Quote of the Week: “It feels great to go in and compete. I’m just blessed to be in that position right now, because a lot of people aren’t. And just knowing that we are a few pieces away from really contending as a team, it just makes me happy.” — Derrick Rose

¡VIVA ESPANA!

Spain defeated Germany 1-0 in the Euro 2008 Finals, a soccer tournament between European countries played once every four years.

While Spain attracts some of the top soccer talent in the world for the Spanish league, their national team also has a reputation for collapsing on the international stage. Before Sunday’s win, Spain had not won a major international tournament in 44 years. Spain’s one goal came from Fernando Torres, who normally plays in the English Premier League for Liverpool. Torres’ goal came in the middle of the first half, and that was all the Spanish team needed to outlast the powerful German squad.

Quote of the Week: “Torres was taken off in the 78th minute, with his job already done in waking the sleeping giants of European football.”

SISTER, SISTER

Sisters Venus and Serena Williams both advanced to the second round of competition at Wimbledon. Wimbledon, the third of the four Grand Slam events, is one of the most important tournaments of the year.

The Williams sisters’ success this year has brought a great deal of attention, in part because they are two of the biggest names in tennis, but also because Americans have struggled greatly at the tournament thus far. All of the American men in singles, including Andy Roddick, have been knocked out of the competition. Other big name players who were upset early in the tournament include Novak Djokovic, Ana Ivanovic, and Maria Sharapova. The Williams sisters are both favored in their upcoming matches.

While many of the world’s top players have already been knocked out, rivals Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal remain in the competition. Nadal recently defeated Federer at the French Open, but Wimbledon is a grass court, and defending champion Federer is the world’s best player on grass.


Quote of the Week: “The epidemic of upset fever at Wimbledon this year has yet to prove contagious to the Williams sisters.” — Christopher Clarey, New York Times

:: NCAA TOURNAMENT DOWN TO “FINAL FOUR” TEAMS (College Basketball)

:: BASEBALL BEGINS, OPENING DAY (Pro. Baseball)

:: TIGER WOODS WINNING STREAK ENDS (Golf)

MIDNIGHT STRIKES FOR CINDERELLA DAVIDSON; FOUR TOP-RANKED TEAMS STAY ALIVE

The NCAA Tournament has been narrowed down to four teams–North Carolina, UCLA, Memphis, and Kansas. This is the first time that the four top-ranked teams in the tournament have all made it to the Final Four.

While each of these four teams had their own unique journey to the Final Four, perhaps the most emotional victory came when Kansas knocked off Davidson on Sunday night. Davidson was undoubtedly this year’s Cinderella–a low-ranked team who becomes a kind of nationally supported underdog, winning the hearts of casual fans everywhere. However, Davidson’s tournament run came to an end when they faced Kansas, one of four top-ranked teams in the tournament. With Davidson eliminated, only four teams remain, all of which were 1-seeds in the tournament. Never before in the history of the NCAA tournament has this taken place.

However, within a week, two of those #1-ranked teams will be sent home. On Saturday, UCLA plays Memphis and North Carolina plays Kansas. The games should be filled with an unprecedented amount media attention and intensity. The two teams that survive Saturday’s games will play for the national championship on Monday.

Quote of the Week: “And then there were ones. Four No. 1s, that is.” — Associated Press

TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALLGAME!

Baseball season officially began last week, when the Boston Red Sox and the Oakland Athletics played two games in Tokyo, Japan. However, for the remaining teams in the league, Opening Day–the first day of the regular season–will take place this week in the States.
With the excitement of Opening Day comes the optimism of fans across the country that this year will be the year that their team wins the World Series. But since the baseball season is roughly six months long, there is a lot of baseball yet to be played. However, there are three story lines that will surely come up throughout the course of the 2008 season, revolving around the New York Yankees, the Boston Red Sox, and the Chicago Cubs.
This year is the Yankees’ last year in Yankee Stadium. The historic venue, where baseball greats such as Babe Ruth, Mickey Mantle, Lou Gehrig, and Joe DiMaggio played, will be replaced next year by New Yankee Stadium. As a result, this year the Yankees will get even more national attention than they already do. The New York Mets are also playing their last season at Shea Stadium this year.
The Boston Red Sox, who won the World Series last year, continue to grow in popularity around the country, rivaling the Yankees as the highest profile team in the country. While baseball analysts are generally reluctant to pick a favorite before the season begins, many baseball writers around the country think that the Red Sox are strong enough to win the World Series again this year.
The Cubs, the Lovable Losers from the North Side of Chicago, have now gone 100 years without winning a World Series. The Cubs’ losing ways are always a popular topic among baseball enthusiasts, so this year the team will undoubtedly be a center of attention in sports.



Quote of the Week: “How did the Dodgers and Red Sox just draw 115,300 fans for an exhibition baseball game? How can any sport in the world possibly top baseball?” — Mark Newman, baseball writer

WOODS TAKES FIRST DEFEAT IN SIX MONTHS

Last Monday, Tiger Woods finished in fifth place in the CA Championship at Doral. That would hardly be newsworthy, were it not for the fact that it is the first time that Woods has lost a tournament in six months.

Geoff Ogilvy, who won the tournament, finished two shots ahead of Woods. Ogilvy’s victory was particularly impressive because of the big names that he narrowly beat out in addition to Woods–Retief Goosen, Vijay Singh, and Jim Furyk. Woods had won the past three years at Doral.

Now that Woods has finally lost, the golf world will be turning its attention to the Masters–the first of the four Major tournaments–which will take place in April.

Quote of the Week: “It has come to this: When Woods doesn’t win, it counts as stunning news.” — Associated Press
Further Reading: Winner Ogilvy glad to see Tiger’s winning streak is history” — Associated Press, via ESPN
