First of all, I would like to apologize because there was no blog yesterday. But don’t worry! This blog is coming out today! “Well, duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuhhhhhhhhhh I’m reading it right now.” Everybody is a wise guy, huh? Anyway, there is a few things that I would like to write about today, so sit back, relax and enjoy!
FOOTBALL IS BACK!!! American Football that is (If anyone is reading this from England). The first Preseason game was yesterday when the Arizona Cardinals Faced the Dallas Cowboys in the HOF game. The Cardinals ran in two touchdowns early. Also adding an extra point and a 2-point conversion. The score would be 15-0 and only 10 minutes had been played. Dallas fired back soon when Kellen Moore hit Rico Gathers For the TD. The Cowboys kicked a field goal in the second to make the score 15-10. Less than 5 minutes after half time Cooper Rush threw it up the middle to Uzoma Nwachukwu for the TD. The score was 18-17 to the Cardinals until early in the 4th quarter when the Dallas kicker Sam Irwin made a 43-yard field goal which would make the score 18-20 to Dallas. They would go on to win the game. Anyway, I think that it is awesome that football is back and to see how the Panthers do this season.
My second topic is going to be about football/soccer. If you follow football/soccer then you should know this story. Neymar, one of the best young forwards in the world, signed for PSG from Barcelona yesterday for a world record 222m euros that’s just about £200m or $262m. I mean that is an absolutely CRAZY amount. This signing completely blew the last record out of the water! The last one was the summer of 2016 when Manchester United signed Paul Pogba for £89m. Neymar’s wages are reported to be (I don’t know if these numbers are right honestly so I am sorry if they’re not accurate) £540,000 a week. I really hope that it works out for Neymar because he is probably getting so much hate on social media right now. He is such a good player and he has a bright future.
My final topic is to do with basketball. It is actually about a basketball video game. A couple of days ago EA (a video game production company) released a trailer for NBA Live 18 including WNBA teams which means you will be able to play with those teams in the game! I think that is pretty cool that you can do that because you have never been able to play with WNBA teams before in any game. I will definitely be getting NBA Live 18 or NBA 2K18, they both look really good this year.
Next week’s blogs will be more American football and whatever else is going on in the sports world.
Thank you very much for reading and make sure to look out for my next blogs.
