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!

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.
