Weekend Recap: Irish Jigs, NASCAR’s Twitter Face, & Overstuffed Bumble Bees
Keep reading to make sure you are prepared for today’s office talk recapping the weekend in sports…
- Notre Dame earns the national #1 ranking for the first time in school history. After starting the weekend as the lowest ranked undefeated team, Kansas State and Oregon lost when the pressure was on, opening the door for the Irish. Notre Dame needs to hold on to its 0 in the loss column to earn a spot in the championship game. Luckily for them, the starting QB for USC, their opponent this coming weekend, is sidelined with an injury.
- NASCAR’s most active Twitter personality, Brad Keselowski, backed up his boisterous and aggressive personality winning the Sprint Cup championship. Keselowski earned his first win beating longstanding NASCAR champ, Jimmie Johnson. And in true Keselowski spirit, he tweeted from his car as soon as he captured the win. Make sure you start following @keselowski for a little rough around the edges NASCAR flavor!
- It is that time during the NFL season where players are dropping like flies. There are so many injuries that it is tough keeping track of all of the backups. The most notable injuries are concussions, which have become a real problem for the League. Aside from sidelining some big names, the NFL’s battle with concussions is heating up as evidence was released this week that a part of the League may have known about the effects of concussions years ago and failed to inform the players. This is an issue to keep an eye on as it will be interesting to see whether the League can overcome a PR nightmare of concussions having disastrous long term effects on its players.
- And, on a lighter note, the Pittsburgh Steelers whipped out some hideous throwback uniforms in their loss to the Baltimore Ravens last night. The overstuffed bumble bees will have a more difficult time living down those outfits than the loss to their rivals.
And, make sure to tune in tonight to the Monday night battle of the backup QBs: Chicago Bears v. SF 49ers (ESPN 8:30PM)….The starting quarterbacks are benched with concussions so let’s see if their #2s can make their mark on the national stage.
