NFL Combine Results 2010: Eric Berry Impresses in 40 Times

In the recent NFL Combine Results news this 2010, Eric Berry told media confidently that he is the best and ranked first overall in the entire draft. He really looked fast and fluid running his 40-yard dash with a worth-of-praise official time of 4.47. Now that’s fast!

All the defensive backs are running their 40-yard dashes at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis and two of the highest rated players, Florida’s Joe Haden and Tenessee’s Eric Berry, each had an up and a down in their runs.

Berry showed that he has good upper body strength too, managing 19 reps in the bench press and showed smooth hips when changing direction in the field drills.

Standing at an impressive size of 5’11 1/2″ and 211 pounds, Berry has been compared to Ravens All-Pro safety Ed Reed. He also told the media during his interviews that he would rather make a play intercepting a pass rather than making the huge hit.

Haden on the other hand, who is the top cornerback, ran a very disappointing 40-yard dash time with an official 4.57.

Yes, I know. 4.57 is fast indeed. But even though a 4.57 is still considered pretty fast, a cornerback needs to run as close to 4.4 as possible.

And why? Because they need speed at their position to be able to run with wide receivers and recovery speed in the secondary is important as well.

Haden disappointed in his vertical leaping ability, while Berry is proving that he is indeed worthy to be included in the top 10.

Super Bowl XLV Got No Cheerleaders For the First Time

You’re reading it right folks. This year’s Super Bowl got no cheerleaders. If you’re expecting these sexy girls this weekend, then you will just be disappointed. The two teams which are competing for this year’s Super Bowl got no cheer leading team. The Pittsburgh Steelers stopped having cheerleaders in 1970, and the Green Bay Packers got rid of their cheerleaders in 1988. Both teams just found out years ago that these girls don’t mean much to their fans.

For this season, the last game that NFL got cheerleaders during a major game was during the AFC wildcard match between the Indianapolis Colts and New York Jets. The Jets emerged victorious by they were not able to surpass the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Some watchers would want to see these sexy girls but neither of the two teams would want to hire stand-ins. Some fans are just okay with it because they don’t want further distractions.

According to Lindsay McCormick, host of The Fan on Comcast SportsNet, “I do think cheerleaders add to the atmosphere of the game, but this is the Super Bowl. How much more atmosphere do you need? You’ve already got the Black Eyed Peas and plenty of entertainment throughout the game.” She’s got a point actually. If people are just concerned of seeing a sexy figure in the game, Fergie is more that enough for all them.

Better start looking for that site having the Super Bowl 2011 live stream as early as this time to watch this much awaited game. The US government has been very strict these days and just had seized ten of the most popular sport event streaming sites but sports site owners just have several ways of showing it to their readers.

Fifa Ballon d’Or Was Awarded To Lionel Messi

Fifa Ballon d’Or Was Awarded To Lionel Messi -Lionel Messi, forward of Argentina and Barcelona, has been awarded the inaugural Fifa Ballon d’Or award at a ceremony in Zurich. The Argentine has won two awards, a merger of the Fifa Player of the Year prize and Ballon d’Or.

Messi said, “I’m surprised to win but pleased to be here with my friends.” He added, “To win it makes it even more special. I want to share it with all of my friends, my family, all the Barcelonistas and the Argentinians.”

Many expected Iniesta, who scored the winning goal as Spain beat Netherlands 1-0 in the World Cup final in Johannesburg in July, and Xavi, who was lynchpin of the Spanish side, were favorites to win at shining ceremony in Switzerland.

Messi was awarded ahead of his Barca team-mates Andres Iniesta and Xavi because he scored a remarkable 60 goals for club and country in 2010 and is widely regarded as the most gifted footballer of his generation. He has also received two different awards last year.

The only Spanish winner of either prize was Luis Suarez who won the Ballon d’Or in 1960.

The Ballon d’Or is awarded based on votes cast by journalists from around the globe, as well as coaches and captains of national teams.

Fresno State VS Boise State Football 2010 Live Telecast On ESPN Channels

Fresno State VS Boise State

During the 12th week of the NCAA College Football, the Fresno State Bulldogs face the no.4 Boise State Broncos this November 19, 2010. The game is being held at the Bronco Stadium in Boise, Idaho which started at 9:30 PM ET. Live coverage of this college football game is available on ESPN2 and online channel.

Despite the fact that Boise State is not in a position to get a place in the BCS, it now seems to be in control of the fact whether they will get a spot or not.

The Broncos have risen to the third position in the AP poll and also close to the third spot in the BCS rankings. They are hoping to secure a decisive victory against Fresno State this Friday night. This day will be looming even larger next week.

A win, regardless of the margin, will not be enough for the Boise State (9-0, 5-0 Western Conference) to pass TCU to get the third place in the BCS ranking. It would however make up for some ground against the Horned Frogs as they did last week and got the third spot in the rankings.

Just one day after the Broncos had a 52-14 win at Idaho, TCU was trailing against San Diego into much of the second quarter and had to settle for a 40-35 win on Saturday.

Manchester United vs Liverpool 2010 Results and Highlights

Premiere League: Manchester United vs Liverpool 2010 Results and Highlights – Manchester United saved a near loss in their match against Liverpool, 3-2. Manchester United should be thanking Bulgarian, Dimitar Berbatov for pulling out the winning goal just six minutes before football regulation time ends.

Manchester United was leading 2-0 against Liverpool and looks all supreme in the game. That would not be the case soon when Liverpool sees an opening in Manchester United’s defense and Steven Gerrard managed to score for Liverpool.

The first goal from Dimitar Berbatov came from the penalty spot after Jonny Evans clumsily fouled Fernando Torres. Later, Berbatov will equalize the score 2-2- with a low free-kick that went through a hole in United’s wall after John O’Shea tripped Torres at the edge of the box.

Manchester United seems to have problem in holding their game advantage during their last two games. They conceded a late equaliser at Fulham, and last weekend allowed Everton to score twice in stoppage time.

Here are the highlights of Premiere League: Manchester United vs Liverpool 2010.
