Spain took their place among the elite teams in soccer history this weekend after taking home a third consecutive major title.  Wimbledon has had a March Madness type of feel with Venus Williams exiting in Round 1 and Rafael Nadal going down in Round 2.  Brad Keselowski was the king of the Kentucky Speedway.  And the “Dwight Howard Soap Opera” has opened up Season 2.  Last week was a great one, but this week will be jam-packed in its own right.  Here are the events to keep an eye on.

5.  Kentucky Speedway got it right this year.  Brad Keselowski was a happy man on Saturday night as he moved into 10th in the Sprint Cup Standings.  Now the NASCAAR crew heads to Daytona to see who can take home the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at Daytona.  David Ragan came out victorious last year at this event, while the current leader of the Spring Cup Standings, Matt Kenseth, finished second.

Outside the Lines on ESPN is one of the best shows on television year in and year out.  They have great stories.  In depth analysis.  Interesting insights.  And they normally paint the entire picture for the audience.  It is overall just great reporting and something I always look forward to watching.

Recently, on an episode, Bob Ley, who is one of the best sports reporters in the game and has been working on the show since it began in 1990, was forced into reading (rapping) some Jay-Z lyrics.  Now it is not every day that you get to see Bob Ley rap.  These Jay Z lyrics were relevant to the recent LeBron James/DeShawn Stevenson rumblings.

Check out Ley’s rap abilities. Continue reading
