In come the upstart Aggies from Texas A&M, led by a talented but very young freshman quarterback, who had just begun making noise around the country with his exciting and controversial style. Against Alabama, the freshman led his team to a 20-0 first quarter lead, helping the Aggies hang on to secure a 29-24 victory and hand Alabama its only blemish in the 2012 college football season. The freshman quarterback’s name was Johnny Manziel. Perhaps you have heard of him? That day in Tuscaloosa was the day the hysteria known as Johnny Football was born, and from it, a shocking loss of control over his own life became apparent.

In Major league Baseball or the MLB, a rookie shortstop named Trevor Story broke the record for the greatest amount of home-runs in a season in Baseball history. “Trevor Story of the Colorado Rockies in the National League hit seven home runs in the first six games” Says The St. Augustine Record newspaper. Trevor Story topped the record of veteran stars named Willie Mays (1964), Mike Schmidt (1978) and last but not least, Larry Walker (1997). Trevor was also the fifth player to hit home-runs in the first four games. Since Trevor as a rookie was playing amazing only at 22 years old, some other MLB baseball players started to wonder how long Trevor could keep hitting homers.
The Texas Rangers currently sit atop the AL West by 6 games over the Houston Astros led by the forgotten ace Cole Hamels. Hamels was dealt to the Rangers at the deadline last July and hasn 't missed a beat the former world champion has put together a quiet 12-2 record with a 2.84 ERA putting him in Cy Young conversation. Hamels has been one of the most consistent pitchers in baseball for 10 years being the ace for two different clubs and helps lead the Phillies to a championship in 2008 as I mentioned. Since putting on the Rangers uniform he is 19-3 and amazingly he hasn 't been talked about as much as he should because he is out West. I think that 's been a great benefit for Hamels because although he is the ace he is not “the guy” as he was in the latter part of his Phillies career.

I remember that day in Kyle Field when we beat the hell out of those Mississippi State Bulldogs my freshman year. Simply, that is when I experienced the 12th man. The Aggies took the lead in the fourth quarter and won 51-41. Ever since then, I believe the outcome of every game is in control of the 12th man. Although, I experienced a more somber side of the Aggie Spirit on a Tuesday night.
For the first time since 1990, the New York Giants are the reigning Super Bowl champions. Their thrilling victory over the 18-0 New England Patriots is already being called one of the greatest football games every played. Even casual football fans found themselves following the ups and downs of Big Blue last season. It all started when bookie Tim Mara bought the New York Giants in 1925 for a whopping $500 and then almost went bankrupt when they lost their first three games. Six years later, Mara passed team ownership to his sons Jack and Wellington.
