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. Through all of our eyes the prank was pretty good, I mean he really had him going; however I could see it if Brock was upset, he did a great job laughing at himself though.

We are now half way through the month of July and quite a lot has transpired. The Open Championship, MLB All-Star Festivities, and Women’s FIFA World Cup – which I never thought I would be this interested in – have now concluded; they were the premiere events this July. With that being said today on the East Side we are going to take a look at what, where, and who have been hot; and who really have not been so hot with mid-way through the summer.

With the U.S. Women’s World Cup Soccer Team coming off of one of the most unbelievable, memorable moments in World Cup History with Abby Wambach’s stoppage time in extra time header goal a lot of talk has risen about what the top sports moments in the last ten years have been. So I ask, where does the U.S. Women’s Goal this past Sunday rank among the most enthralling moments in the past ten years in Sports?

As I brainstormed moments for this article, I remembered why I am a sports fan; it is because of the periodic magic that ignites the fans. I reviewed these highlights and a couple of them I sat there and thought about where I was and what I did once it happened. I tried to remember the ones that I had gone the most crazy over, and by no means is this perfect; however it should be very suitable for this category.

New York fans, in my opinion, are the most criticizing city in the country. No disrespect intended – and it shows how much they love their teams – but today, finally for just one day, everything went perfectly. Derek Jeter, New York Yankee Captain, stepped up to bat in the third inning after capturing his 2,999th hit in the bottom of the first and this happened..

Three thousand hits in one career is an achievement that only 27 other MLB players have accomplished in their careers. It’s a magical number and among the list are some of the all-time greats; Cal Ripken Jr., Willie Mays, Pete Rose, and Ty Cobb. It was the main plot in a movie starring the deceased Bernie Mack – Mr.3000 – and the bottom-line is that it is one hell of a spectacle.
