followed by Take Charge Indy, Successful Dan, Golden Ticket, defending race

Two division world champion Paulie Malignaggi will defend his WBA welterweight title for the second time against undefeated and current WBC lightweight world titlist Adrien Broner on June 22nd at the Barclays Center. While many boxing analysts and fans think that this will be a fairly easy fight for Broner, there are many reasons supporting the contrary.

Talk about a confusing and brutal season so far for the Tulsa Shock. The Shock haven’t been able to get anything going, as their most recent loss dropped them to 1-7, as they went down to the Phoenix Mercury by a score of 108-103 in overtime. If you had to take a guess about who stepped up for the Mercury, I could give you two chances and I feel pretty confident that you’d be able to knock it of the park.
Many of the WNBA contenders this season have to be somewhat worried about the Mercury, in large part due to continue
Perhaps the most ironic element when looking at the way Joe Paterno lost his job as Penn State’s football coach after 46 seasons is that as a young man, he had his eyes set on law school.
The fallout in 2011 from the child sex-abuse scandal involving Jerry Sandusky, who was an assistant on Paterno’s Penn State staff until 1999, prompted the university’s Board of Trustees to fire Paterno, then 84, with three games left in the regular season.
