8/16/13 in NFL   |   Jess   |   34885 respect

Greetings, sports fans! Another night of "something for everybody" - I can't help but love the end of summer/early autumn. We've got some American AND Canadian football on tap, soccer, baseball, NHRA racing, boxing, MMA, WNBA, golf and tennis, and who knows what else. We'll take a look at the lineup (all times eastern) after checking out what's been happening in news and rumors:

It looks like things just keep getting worse for A-Rod - soon he won't have any friends.....big news out of Philadelphia as manager Charlie Manuel is fired and the team appoints Ryne Sandberg as interim.....speaking of the Phillies, Roy Halladay is looking Miguel Cabrera already one of the all-time greats?.....Continuing with our NFL storyline series, next up is the NFC I noted in the headline of the article, Alex Smith will square off against the Niners tonight.....Apparently Jeremy Lin has changed.....Lamar Odom staying in LA?.....Bucks are nearing deal with Larry Sanders on extension.....looks like Cards LB Washington will be serving his suspension.....If you want to keep up on our own Tyler Waddell's NCAAF predictions, check out his twitter feed!
