Many people have concerns about the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 soccer tournament.
The FIFA World Cup, the biggest event in men’s soccer–perhaps in sports, period–will be co-hosted jointly in 2026 by Canada, Mexico and the United States.
Each of the three countries will host some of the games. One proposal is for Canada and Mexico to each host 10 games, and for the United States to host 60 games.
Canada hosted the women’s world cup in 2015, one of only four countries to host both events.
A very unusual thing happened in a football game, and it’s going to help the families of some ill and physically challenged kids.
The Buffalo Bills football team hasn’t been in the playoffs for a long time. In fact, the last time was in 2000–more than 17 years ago. They were the last team in any of the four major sports in North America (football, baseball, basketball, hockey) to make the playoffs in the 21st Century. Now that’s a drought!*
But that all changed this year and the Buffalo Bills got to go to the playoffs.
On Sunday, November 26, The Calgary Stampeders battled The Toronto Argonauts for the CFL’s most coveted trophy, The Grey Cup. It was the 105th time the championship game has been played. The game boasted all of the excitement and drama that you would expect and was tightly contested by both teams. The Grey Cup was played in snowy conditions in our nation’s capital, Ottawa.
It’s fun to think about why we so many of us love sports as much as we do. Is it the action? The drama? The competition? The incredible athletes?
Most likely, everyone’s answer is a little different. However, no matter what brought the millions of viewers worldwide to their TVs, this year’s NFL championship game, The Super Bowl had it all.
The Denver Broncos won football’s ultimate prize on Sunday: the Superbowl. It was the 50th anniversary of the big game that is held every year at this time.
The trademark for the name “Redskins” used by the Washington Redskins football team, has been cancelled.
The Seattle Seahawks won Super Bowl XLVIII in grand style. Seattle crushed Denver 43-8.
Seattle’s number-one ranked defence was commanding. In fact, the defense of Seattle kept Denver scoreless for the first half of the game.
Denver’s number-one ranked offence was pathetic.
It was the first time since 1990 that both the number one-offence and the number-one defence played against each other in the Super Bowl.
Peyton Manning, Denver’s quarterback did try his best, though. He set a record with 33 completions (the number of times a ball is successfully passed to a teammate). Nevertheless, he had a night to forget.
Super Bowl Sunday is nearly here.
On February 2, professional football’s biggest and most important game — the Super Bowl — will take place.
The Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks will be battling each other for league supremacy.
Denver enters the game with the league’s number-one offence. Seattle enters the game with the league’s number-one defence.
Denver has one of the best quarterbacks ever to play football: Peyton Manning.
He is the only player ever selected league as the National Football League Most Valuable Player four times. He’s expected to become the first five-time MVP when the league’s year-end awards are announced on Saturday.
The NFL (National Football League) is in full swing and many exciting stories have already begun to unfold.
Although the league opened just three weeks ago, teams have already surprised their fans, for better and for worse.
Seven of the 32 teams in the league are now 3-0 (3 wins – no losses).
But it may not be the teams you would expect.
Favourites such as The Seattle Seahawks, The Denver Broncos and The New England Patriots are 3-0, but so are The Kansas City Chiefs, The Miami Dolphins, The Chicago Bears, and The New Orleans Saints—four teams that didn’t even make the playoffs last year.
