Indiana Fever Updates

leave a comment »

Indianapolis has always been a huge sport state with the Indy 500, Colts, Pacers, and the Indiana Fever.

There are only 12 teams in the WNBA and Indiana is one of the states lucky enough to have a team. It is so much fun to go and watch the games in the summer.

However, this off-season for the Fever has been full of moving and switching players. Ebony Hoffman has now switched to the L.A Sparks. Ebony has played 6 years in Pro Basketball and all of them have been with the Fever.

Tully Bevilaqua has moved to the San Antonio Silver Stars. Tully has played 11 years in pro basketball, with her last 6 years spent with the Fever. It is sad for some people and a happy time for others but for one thing, it will be interesting to see how they all do with their new teams.

Nevertheless, we still have some of the best players, with Katie Douglas, Tamika Catchings, Jessica Davenport, Tammy Sutton-Brown and many others. The newest member of the Fever is Tangela Smith, who replaced Ebony. Smith has played 12 years in Pro Basketball, and we look forward to seeing her play this season with the Fever.

I am looking forward to this season for the Fever, and it should be fun as always for my family and me.

Bob Sanders contract with Chargers

leave a comment »

So two days ago announced that Bob Sanders of the Indianapolis Colts has signed a one-year contract with the San Diego Chargers after being let go by the Colts.


Sanders had played with the Colts for about 6 years. In addition, he had played in the Pro Bowl twice, in 2005 and 2007. As well as won three player of the year in 2007 (GMC, AFC defensive player, and AP NFL Defensive player of the year.


He was a good player for the Colts and unfortunately was not able to play much in the 2010 season because of a torn right bicep, which put him on injury reserve for the rest of the season.


Former head coach, Tony Dungy, had also called sanders “The Eraser,” because how good he was as making plays that it made up for any mistakes that any of the other players had made. Then there was the nickname “The Hitman,” because of how hard Sanders could hit.


It will be fun to see how he does with his new team. And I cannot wait for the time the Colts and Chargers play. The Chargers had better hope that Sanders does not get any serious injuries this year, because he is a valuable player.


Let us also hope that there will be an agreement soon, so that we can have our football season back next year, as well as the Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis.
