Sunday Sports Wrap - June 29, 2008



The biggest event today is the Euro 2008 in Vienna. Will Germany win? Will Spain win? I'm excited to see the result.

Today is a rest day at Wimbledon. I caught most of the Nadal vs. Kiefer yesterday and it was definitely worth the watch.

Stacy Lewis sits atop the leaderboard at the U.S. Women's Open at nine back. Paula Creamer is right behind at -8. Annika Sorenstam is far behind the leaders and very frustrated with her performance. Although she is under par, it isn't enough. It would have been nice to see her take this one on her farewell tour, but she's got nothing to be ashamed of.

And, as usual for this time of year, there's plenty of baseball to watch!


Today in Sports History

1990 - Los Angeles Dodgers legend Fernando Valenzuela throws a no hitter against the Cardinals. Final score 6-0.

1995 - Dodgers pitcher Hideo Nomo struck out thirteen Colorado Rockies in a 3-0 victory. This brought him to 50 strikeouts in 4 games, breaking the Los Angeles record of forty-nine 49 over 4 games accomplished 3 times by Sandy Koufax.

Thank goodness it was a rest day at Wimbledon. Time to watch Euro 2008 and not get sports overload. I recorded the "Wimbledon Primetime" show on ESPN to see the comments. I missed a few tennis matches to watch the Euro 2008. Now, no excuse.

I know, right? Too much sports is a good thing though!

I watched the Euro game Sunday. I was really excited, but I have to admit it was a pretty boring game. There were not many shots taken. Oh well.

I get hypnotized I guess!

I just saw the Federer-Hewitt match. What did you think of that match? I couldn't believe Federer had to go to a tie-break on the 1st set!
