At the end of every month on the Eastside we take a moment to step back and view the realm of sports as one entity. This Top Ten may include Highlights, Stories, etc., ultimately helping the fan get a feel for what I thought were the best of sports for the month of August 2011.

What can I say about the month of August? We are kicking back into gear with school and sports alike; and football is about to refill our lives. August has seen an unexpected finish to a Major Championship, an eventful NFL pre-season, an escalating MLB playoff race, a lockout seemingly accomplishing nothing, and the return of an ex-golf superstar; definitely a month to remember.

10 – Pete Carroll, ex-Collegiate Program Ruiner and the Seattle Seahawks Head Coach, was in the news just this past week; not for a great job coaching nor a landslide victory, but pulling a prank. Carroll brought a couple of cops into a Team Meeting Session to fake-arrest Seahawk’s Raheem Brock.

At the end of every month on the Eastside we take a moment to step back and view the realm of sports as one entity. This Top Ten may include Highlights, Stories, etc., ultimately helping the fan get a feel for what I thought were the best of sports for the month of July 2011.

What can I say about the month of July? Ultimately not the most ideal month for a sports fan, but it shaped up to be quite a month. From the Heart-Felt moments to Landslide Victories, and the Highlights to the Work Stoppages – July made for a more compelling 31 days than I would have thought. So without further adieu, let the Countdown begin.

At the end of every month on the EastSide we take a moment to step back and view the realm of sports as one entity. This Top Ten may include Highlights, Stories, etc., ultimately helping the fan get a feel for what I thought were the best of sports for the month of June 2011.

What can I say about the month of June? It is where the beginning of summer meets the blood, sweat, and determination of a team to reach the Finals – in both the NBA and the NHL. June is the month in which athletes take their games to another level…and then they take it a little higher. The end goal is in sight, and three of the grandest prizes in sports are on the line – The Larry O’Brien, Stanley Cup, and the US Open Trophies. This June however was different, however, because some surprise stories took place; this month select athletes took the initiative to write their own stories, it made for an intriguing month to say the least. So without further adieu, let the countdown begin.
