2013. What does that mean to you? To me, it means arguably the best sports year in the history of sports. The year made us laugh, cry, it made us happy, and it made us sad. As I said, to me, it was the sports that made it special.
In the sport of basketball, amazing things are bound to happen, when you have LeBron James on your team. The Miami Heat have repeated with their NBA Finals victory, beating the Spurs.
The Clippers (also known as “lob city”) have had the dunk of the year for three straight years, but their dunk for this year, which was a dunk-face alley-oop from Chris Paul to DeAndre Jordan.
Earlier today on SportsCenter, they Kevin Negandhi asked NBA Analyst, Tim Legler what his favorite NBA moment of 2013 was. He said that it was Ray Allen’s game tying three-pointer in game six of the NBA Finals. That was what truly won that series.
Ray Lewis has lead his Ravens to one last Super Bowl before his retirement. Ravens’ fans were very sad at their loss (but not me, he works for ESPN now. Woot-woot.)
And then there’s Peyton Manning. I sure hope I’m not the only one who thinks we are witnessing a living legend. Records are falling down at his feet. This is the best season a quarterback has had. Ever. And that is all I have to say.
This year, I paid more attention to baseball than normal. We all have heard about the Boston bombings. What does this have to do with baseball? Well, this took a big hit on the city of Boston. And the Red Sox (with Big Papi in charge) really made the city happy again, with their world series victory.
Yasiel Puig was something no one expected. With a batting average of .319, It was a surprise he didn’t win National League MVP, or make the all star team, ORwin the NL rookie of the year.
2013 is definitely a year to remember. From wondering to what a certain animal says, to winning a fourth MVP. SportsCenter made an interesting video. I hope you enjoy it.
Happy New Year everyone. I hope you have a wonderful 2014.
