This week there were a few sports stories that were worth mentioning but that didn’t need a whole lot written about them, so I am linking them up here.
- NFL Europe has folded after 16 years. I think that this is a bad move if the NFL thinks that they are going to expand popularity for American Football overseas. A couple of regular season games is not going to make up for a bunch of fans that they had managed to cultivate being so let down. (Source: ESPN.com)
- The UK firm Sports Direct has managed to outbid Hidary for the Everlast company for $30/share (cash). Everlast is one of the largest manufacturers of boxing equipment in the United States. (Source: BBC.com)
- Ray Allen is now playing for the Boston Celtics. I was a big fan of Ray Allen when he played at UConn, and it has been a few years since I have made my way down to watch the Celtics play. I will definately have to make the effort again this coming season. (Source: Boston Globe)
