9/18/13 in MLB   |   Jess   |   34438 respect

Greetings, sports fans! Welcome back to the all-sport live thread! MLB is in the middle of a pennant race, the NHL has started their preseason, and there are a few other things going on tonight. Let's take a look at the schedule (all times eastern) after we finish up the blog recap, shall we? 

Best of the Web Recap:
My personal favorite blog of the week - probably because I'm just glad it wasn't the Mariners this time.....With the MLB regular season winding down, who do we think will win the NL MVP?.....Speaking of winning, or not, are the NFL's winless teams after Week 2 as bad as it seems?.....One thing that's prevalent this early in the season, win or lose, are all the injuries. The Broncos just lost All-Pro LT Ryan Clady for the season, Seahawks lost Pro Bowl LT Russell Okung to turf toe, and the Falcons lost Steven Jackson for at least a couple of weeks, among many others in the league this week.....Thanks to safety concerns, we won't have to see those god-awful creamsicle helmets in Tampa Bay.....And a subject close to my own heart, there are positive role models in the NFL - here's one of those feel-good stories.....Don't forget to check out the From the Armchair articles this week!.....What's to expect for Week 3?.....For everything else you may have missed, go to the FanIQ Best of the Web homepage and scroll through.
