Derek Jeter hits no. 3000 Just call him DJ3K.

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter recorded his 3,000th hit in dramatic fashion Saturday, homering on a 3-2 pitch from Tampa Bay southpaw David Price in the third inning to become the 28th member of the 3,000-hit club.

He is the first Yankee to tally 3,000 hits all in pinstripes.

Jeter quickly rounded the bases and was mobbed by his teammates at home plate, where a celebration ensued and fans, teammates and even the Rays players themselves cheered on “The Captain.”

He also singled in the first to get to 2,999 and doubled for hit No. 3,001 in the fifth inning. His home run was his first at-bat with a shot at No. 3,000

The Decision II, starring Russell Wilson

The Decision II, starring Russell WilsonAfter head coach of NC State, Tom O’Brien, sent Russell Wilson packing, it looked like Wilson may settle for baseball in the Colorado Rockies organization. But as time elapsed during college football’s offseason, various suitors came to Wilson in hopes to acquire a veteran and accomplished commodity.

It worked.

Earlier today, Wilson took a page from LeBron James’ decision and created Decision Part II when he announced that he would continue his college football career in Wisconsin for the Wisconsin Badgers. But is anyone to blame? Is it a good fit? How does O’Brien and the Wolfpack feel now that their best player, since Philip Rivers, rides off into the sunset?

Golf needed a Rory McIlroy.

It needed a feel good moment. A comeback story. Someone to root for. Someone young and refreshing, who could breathe new life into a sport that had gone stale since its last young superstar melted down off the course.

Could Miami sneak up and win the NBA crown?

Could Miami sneak up and win the NBA crown? It’s been quite a rollercoaster ride for the Miami Heat this year. LeBron James’ “Decision” to come to Miami went way too noticed, and led to a feeling that the season started early. The anticipation of seeing what the newly assembled super team could accomplish set the stage for the rollercoaster’s initial drop.

Of course as soon as the team experienced a streak of consecutive losses, panic, jeers, and debates were once again set off. It only took the team losing three games in a row in November to do that—this new age of media is really something else.

Ramsey County officials announced last week they have reached an agreement with the Minnesota Vikings to be the team’s local partner in the effort to build a new 1.6 million-square-foot retractable-roof, multi-purpose stadium in Arden Hills.

Phil Jackson: Golden til’ the end

Phil Jackson: Golden til’ the endPhil Jackson. Though he benefits from the high profile spotlight of the NBA stage, Jackson’s name may go down as the greatest coach in sports history. It’s pretty pleasing to have Jackson coaching the Lakers (in my California opinion), but the potential third 3-Peat of my Laker fan days, pales compared to Jackson’s pursuit of a fourth overall 3-Peat in his career. I imagine that it’s a little strange for Chicago Bulls fans to see Jackson winning all the championships with the Lakers, as it is for me trying to appreciate the Bulls’ championship run under Jackson in the 90’s—considering the Bulls killed the “Showtime” Lakers coming out of the 80’s, leading to a 90’s decade of misery for the Lakers.
