Rant and Rise: San Francisco Giants Take Game 1, NHL Lockout Update, DeAngelo Hall’s Comments
Here’s the latest edition of Rant and Rise for October 25, 2012:
After an exciting postseason consisting of numerous headlines, the 2012 World Series finally got under way on Wednesday with the Giants taking an early 1-0 lead thanks to an 8-3 win over the Tigers on Wednesday.
Pablo Sandoval came up big for San Francisco after going 4 of 4 with three home runs–two of which were off of Justin Verlander. The third baseman joined Babe Ruth, Reggie Jackson, and Albert Pujols as the only players in MLB history to hit three home runs in a single World Series game and helped the Giants carry their momentum over from their big NLCS Series with the St. Louis Cardinals.
NHL Lockout Update
Bad news for hockey fans as it looks like the chances of an 82-game regular season are highly unlikely as both sides continued to struggle on a new agreement before Thursday’s deadline. There was a legitimate offer last week to the NHLPA involving a 50-50 revenue split that appeared to have a good chance to go through, but that deal was rejected along with numerous counter offers.
When taking into consideration there are no future meetings scheduled as of now–things don’t look good when it comes to having a 2012-13 season.
DeAngelo Hall‘s Comments About the New York Giants
The Washington Redskins were on the verge of knocking off the defending Super Bowl Champions in Week 7 until Eli Manning connected with Victor Cruz for the game-winning 77-yard score to give the Giants a 27-23 win. Instead of giving the Giants credit for their impressive win, Hall claims the Redskins flat-out gave the play to them at the end.
Can anyone say sore loser?
