Monday morning. Your alarm goes off for the first time in two days, you head back to the office and then spend the first few hours of the workday planning how you’ll survive until closing time on Friday. Luckily, Poker Central and Death Wish Coffee have you covered. The world’s strongest coffee gives you a “Morning Perk,” recapping the weekend sports action on Monday and then the best from across the internet on Friday.
When you spend the whole weekend flipping from channel to channel, trying to figure out which sporting events deserves your attention on a minute-by-minute basis, that is a good weekend. This was one of those weekends, as there weren’t enough hours on Saturday and Sunday to follow it all. From the “most exciting two minutes in sports” to playoff action in two sports and a potential World Series preview, this weekend had it all.
Speaking of finals, a month into the MLB season, we could have just seen a preview of the World Series. The New York Yankees have the best record in the American League and just swept the defending champion Chicago Cubs, at Wrigley Field. One of the only positives for the Cubs during that three-game stretch, was this Derek Jeter-esque catch by outfielder Kyle Schwarber but alas, it was all in vail. The Yankees won in 18 innings yesterday, to prove that they are the real deal.
