Tonight the 2014 NFL football season officially starts up. Kicking off with a game in Seattle against the Seattle Seahawks and the Green Bay Packers.

Last night the Indiana Fever played against the Chicago Sky in game 3 of the Eastern Finals, where the winner would go to the WNBA Finals and the other would go home. Unfortunatley the Fever fell short and lost 75-62. Despite the loss Head Coach Lin Dunn praised her team and stated that she was proud of them.

Indianapolis Colts’ owner Jim Irsay has been finned $500,000 and suspended six games for violating the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy by driving while being intoxicated. Irsay will be on probation and have his license taken away for a year. He will be able to attend on October 9th’s game against the Houstan Texans.

On the bright side, the Colts play against the Denver Broncos in Denver Sunday night for the first Sunday Night Football game of the season!

Last night the Indiana Fever played against the San Antonio Silver Stars, but sadly didn’t win.

The game started off slow with the Fever getting the first points of the game but falling behind 11-2. but that was as far as the Silver Stars got for the first quarter as the first quarter ended with the Fever on top 23-11. The second quarter was almost the same as the first as the fever took a 15-point lead ending the half 43-28.

After the half the Silver Stars seemed to gain momentum and quickly put points on the board and gave the Fever a hard time of keeping the lead, the 3rd quarter ended with the Fever barely leading 59-57. But after 3 minuets the Silver Stars take the lead back 65-61. The Fever continuously got super close to taking the lead back before the end of the game but were not able to pull it off.

The game ended with a final basket from Tully Bevilaqua (former fever player) and the Silver Stars won 88-72. The Fever played hard and they played their best.

The Fever’s next home game is July 7th against the Chicago Sky.
