Inside the Mind of Your Favorite Bartender

A wild weekend of sports

Lets recap the weekend in sports. There was lots of action, upsets and drama in the second weekend of September.

  1. Floyd Mayweather put on clinic Saturday night against Andre Berto in his last fight. Although most cynics think he will fight again, I feel as if this truly was his last fight. I watched the fight closely and had Floyd winning every round. There were a few rounds where Berto made it close, but overall it was an exciting fight that once again, Floyd clearly won.
  2. Notre Dame vs. Virginia – Wow, what a game. Just when it looked like The Fighting Irish would put UVA away late in the third quarter, their star quarterback Malik Zaire went down with a broken ankle. Notre Dame scored on that possession, then UVA fought back to take the lead before Notre Dame scored a huge touchdown in the final seconds to take the lead and win the game.
  3. Flavia Pennetta winning her first Grand Slam Tennis Title at the 2015 U.S. Open. She rose to fame when she defeated prohibitive favorite Serena Williams in the semifinals, then closed the show by defeating fellow Italian Roberta Vinci. Pennetta was a 200-1 underdog at the start of the tournament to win the title.
  4. Michigan State vs. Oregon – In the first top 10 college football game of the season, this game lived up to all the hype. Both teams came out blazing with opening touchdown drives before the game settled down and The Spartans defense took control and held off a late Oregon rally to solidify itself as a team to watch heading towards the College Football Playoff.
  5. Cowboys vs. Giants – The NFL’s most valuable team, The Dallas Cowboys, pulled out a last second victory over NFC East rival, The New York Giants. Even after losing Dez Bryant for a minimum of four weeks with a foot injury, The Cowboys marched down the field to pull off the improbable win at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

There were several other wild moments in sports this past weekend, but these were just some of the most important highlights. I was just happy to be a sports fan and witness the level of competition on display.
