This week in sports the conference championship games have concluded in the NFL. On the AFC side of things the Denver Broncos slightly edge out a win over the heavily favored New England Patriots. It was a hard fought game with two of the biggest names in the history of the NFL at the quarterback position in Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. Now on the NFC side the Carolina Panthers beat the Arizona Cardinals in what you would call a blow out fashion as they are easily coasting to a super bowl appearance. Cam Newton the quarterback for the Carolina Panthers is also my favorite to win the NFL MVP award as he would be the first Carolina Panther to do so. In the NBA the Golden State Warriors are out to the best start in Professional basketball history as they top the 1995-1996 Chicago Bulls with a 42-4 record. The Spurs are also on a hot streak and look to topple the warriors but would be hard trying to compete the the best team in NBA history. Stay tuned next week for more about your Pro Bowl starters for the NFL and for your NBA all-star weekend participants.

This week in sports the NFL playoffs are still underway as the 1st and 2nd seeds in both conferences win out and are now heading to the conference championships in what should be an exciting road to the super bowl. The 1st ranked panthers in the NFC are looking to take down the 2nd ranked cardinals. The panthers have home-field advantage but the cardinals have proved that they can get the job done anywhere. The patriots also look to upset a very veteran bronco's squad who in my opinion is very beaten and battered and this point. Also in the NBA the Spurs are the only team in the west that looks capable enough to compete with a very hot Warriors team. Lamarcus Aldridge and a veteran Tim Duncan anchor this team front court as they look to rally in one last ring before Tim Duncan decides to hang it up. No news is baseball this week because the off-season is just heading the dead portion. Stay tuned next week for more news in sports.

This week in sports the vikings kicker shanked the biggest kick of his entire life. The kick was a 27 yard field goal that would have sent the vikings to the next round of the playoffs. Also the steelers shocked the bengals by upsetting a very beat up and broken Cincinnati team. In the NBA the warriors are still leading all teams in the west and steph curry is leading in the MVP race and is surely going to repeat this year.

In the news this week, Major League Baseball Ken Griffey Jr. gets elected to the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility. Along With Griffey, Mike Piazza will also be going to Cooperstown to join a very renowned list of men to play the game of Baseball. In other news, Week 17 in the NFL has concluded so now its on to the playoffs. Several head coaches of the teams that fell short this season have either been fired or stepped down from the position. Long time New York Giants Head-coach Tom Coughlin was the first coach to step down but came as surprise to some people considering he led the team to two Super Bowl victories(and didn't cheat doing it.) "Warriors! Warriors!" or something along those lines, is what you would see headlining any article about the NBA, considering they not only have the best start in franchise history, but the best start in NBA history. They have been led by the most proficient back-court tandem in the league in Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, who can shoot the 3-ball like no other and play good team basketball. Stay tuned next week for more exciting information surrounding the sports world.
