Shaun White sticking the "never been done before" "big mac" or "double mctwisty" on his final run in the men's half pipe that he didn't even have to do.  Just to please the crowd.

 Curling - Women's gold metal game.  Most intense game of them all.

 Team Persuit speed skating - German Anna Friesinger-Postma broke a skate and crashed at the finish, but kept her cool enough to stretch and put her skate over the finish line to allow her team to advance. They eventually won the gold.  Just goes to show: Never Give Up!

 Short Track Speed Skating 1500m final - Two out of three Koreans wiping out when they were trying to use team work when it's against the rules.  This allowed Apolo Ohno and J. R. Celski to win silver and bronze medals for USA.

USA vs Canada Gold Metal Hockey game - one of the most exciting and intense hockey games ever. USA managed to tie it, however team Canada wins in overtime.  Canadan fans give USA goalie Ryan Miller an ovation as he receives his silver metal after a well played Olympics.

Danica Patrick coming to NASCAR

Yes, rumor has it that the fiesty little IndyCar Series driver Danica Patrick is going to NASCAR.  She could possibly team up with Dale Earnhart, Jr.  She was the first female ever to win an IndyCar race giving the IndyCar series a badly needed boost in followers.  


Danica likes to mix it up a little when she gets pushed around on the track.  This video clip is from Brazil, but you'll get the idea.  Watch as Ryan Briscoe pulls out of pit row too far and clips Danica's car during the 2008 Indy 500, breaking her rear axel putting her out of the race.  Then see what happens when she pulls into pit row...

Of course, there is her sexy side as well...

Hideki Matsui Wins the World Series!

It was pretty much Hideki Matsui vs the Phillies in Game 6 of the World Series.  Or perhaps the whole series.  With a batting average of about .615, he pretty much rocked the whole series.  He was responsible for 6 out of 7 of the Yankees runs in game 6.  If he would have scored a triple in that game, he would have been the first player in history to score a single, double, triple, and a home run in one World Series game!  Maybe New York should build a bridge and name it after him.

Cliff Lee Rocks the Yankees in World Series Game 1

Cliff Lee man, all I can say is awesome dude!  In game 1 of the 2009 World Series Cliff Lee pitched a near perfect game for the Philadelphia Phillies with 10 strikeouts, no walks, and only 1 run scored against him.  It goes down as one of the best if not THE best pitched games in World Series history.  Way to go Cliff!  He did a little acrobatics with a behind the back catch.  Check out the video below from MLB Advanced Media...
