Raptors Land Basketball Star Rudy Gay In Blockbuster Trade

On Wednesday, the general manager of the Toronto Raptors basketball team took care of some unfinished business.

Bryan Colangelo made a huge trade, to get superstar player Rudy Gay.

It all started back in 2006. At that time, Colangelo held the “number-one overall draft pick.” That meant he could choose any eligible player and add them to his team.

He travelled around the world, looking for the perfect person to add to the Raptors.

Underwater Dolphin Rescue Caught On Video

Keller Laros is a professional scuba instructor who lives in Hawaii.

The shores of Kailua-Kona, on The Big Island of Hawaii, host some of the world’s most diverse and interesting aquatic life.

Laros estimates he has made more than 10,000 dives in his career.

On Jan. 11, he led a group of videographers and divers on a “Manta Ray Night Dive.”

However, the tour would be unlike any other trip he had ever been on before.

Who is Jeremy Lin?

On Feb. 4, The New York Knicks basketball team played the New Jersey Nets at Madison Square Gardens in New York City.

The Nets played hard, but they simply couldn’t beat this Knicks team. There was something special about them… and that was Jeremy Lin.

Jeremy Lin turned heads during that game by scoring 25 points and adding seven assists.

Good numbers for any player, but especially for an undrafted player with only a handful of games under his belt.

But this where the story really gets good.

The Giants Take The 2012 Super Bowl

Yesterday, The New York Giants and the New England Patriots faced off in the year’s most important football game — the Super Bowl.

The game was played in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The two teams had faced each other at the Super Bowl before, four years ago. And just like the game back in 2008, the Giants won.

The final score this year was New York Giants 21, New England Patriots 17.

It was a terrific contest between two great football teams, two fantastic coaches, and it was also a rematch between two great quarterbacks.

Dream Weekend For Canadian Football Fans

Last weekend, Canadian football fans had a lot to be happy about.

First, they were treated to one of the best Vanier Cups of all time.

Then, the Canadian Football League’s (CFL’s) biggest prize, The Grey Cup, was also awarded.

On Friday, two very different teams competed for the Vanier Cup, the trophy for Canadian Inter-university Sport (CIS) football.

Laval, the defending champions, boasted an incredible defense which allowed opponents a measly 12 points a game throughout the 2011 season.

McMaster, which hadn’t appeared in the CIS final in 41 years, possessed a strong offense featuring one of the league’s top quarterbacks, Kyle Quinlan.
