It Came From The Weekend – Spain Blanks Italy, Bolt Stays In Second
Being that we’re in that dead period between the end of the NBA season and the beginning of NFL camp as well as actual game that matter in the MLB; we usually look abroad. Specifically knowing that this Summer we’ve actually been treated to the Euro’s, and the Olympics are right around the corner to save us like the random dude that wifed up Super Head.
Spain Blanks Italy
Speaking of the Euro’s, Sunday’s finale affirmed Spanish soccer supremacy over the rest of the known world, when Spain blanked Italy 4-0 at Kiev’s Olympic Stadium. There would be no magic/H.A.M. going via Mario Balotelli or the Italians as Spain notched their third major title in a row. Those would be 2008 Euro Championship, 2010 World Cup, and of course yesterday’s snatching. After riding through various plaza in Madrid hoisting their trophy, and a meeting with King Juan Carlos; stars like Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta can go back to reeking havoc in La Liga.
On a hot note this championship certainly gives all of Spain something to celebrity, especially considering the fact that their economy has been in the tank for sometime. Now onto the other side of the map.
I Am Second – Usain Bolt
The world’s fastest man has yet to return to 2008 Olympic form, and Saturday’s Jamaican Olympic trials are more evidence of a lack in burst from Usain Bolt. In the finals of the 100 meter dash Bolt lost to fellow Jamaican Yohan Blake in a stunning defeat, coming in second. Blake chopped off on the competition with a 9.72, but he wasn’t done. Blake later handed Bolt his first loss in major competition in the 200-meter in 5 years.
Bolt definitely needs to get his weight up if he plans on holding onto either of his gold medals in the year’s Olympics, much less his world’s fastest man title.
