Football is back. How good does it feel to say that? I’m practically hyperventilating knowing that Saturdays and Sundays will be fun again, and that many hours of my life will be spent scouring the fantasy free agent pools for that third-string running back who stands to get 15 carries this week and that backup quarterback who is looking good in practice.
And while the return of football has once again overshadowed everything else going on this week in sports, don’t be foolish. Don’t completely forget about the amazing playoff races going on in baseball, or the latest sneaker releases that have everyone salivating, from Joe Schmoe who lives on your block to the hottest celebrities in Hollywood. Don’t overlook the best in sports just because you get your fiend on and plop yourself in front of a TV for 15 hours every weekend.
The end of summer means new beginnings for new sports, and if you’re like me, you’re not going to miss the heat. There’s too much going on in the world of sports and entertainment to not be excited.
For this week’s feature — Style Points: Marshawn Lynch Trains With Skittles and Jameis Winston is the Truth — we’re breaking down not what athletes have done recently but how they did it. It’s not always about making moves and being at the top of your game. Sometimes, it’s about going that extra step and turning in something that’s different or unique. Or, in the case of Floyd Mayweather this week, it’s just about being different. Check out which athletes and entertainers are getting this week’s style points.
