The Viral Roundup – Land Of Giants Edition

The Viral Roundup – Land Of Giants Edition
The Giants smack down Washington, the Royals officially lock up the American League Central and dunk wizard Jason Richardson calls it a career. Here's the minty fresh world of sports you're waking up to on September 25, 2015.

Did You Hear?

The New York Giants have notched their first win of 2015. Eli Manning went a solid 23-32 with 2 TDs and Odell Beckham Jr. caught seven passes and hit paydirt as the Giants topped their NFC East division rival 32-21 on Thursday Night Football. New York opened up the contest with a 12-0 first quarter and finally survived a fourth quarter with the lead intact. Washington not only lost the game, but also lost cornerback DeAngelo Hall to a toe injury. The Giants were listed as a three point favourite heading into the evening contest.

Did You See?

There are countless reasons why you should learn Spanish and the Carolina Panthers Spanish announce team have added to that list. Check out this amazing call from Jaime Moreno and Luis Moreno, Jr as Cam Newton flips into the endzone for a touchdown in Week 2. How can you not feel ridiculously alive after hearing that call? By the way, the Panthers are favoured by three at home versus New Orleans on Sunday.

Did You Know?

- Kansas City has earned an American League division pennant for the first time since 1985. A 10-4 Kansas City win over Seattle coupled with a 6-3 Minnesota loss to Cleveland allowed this landmark moment to be reached. The Royals now start a three game series at Kaufmann Stadium versus the Indians. At the moment, Kansas City holds a two game over idle Toronto for top spot in the entire American League.

- LSU’s super sophomore Leonard Fournette will not be slowed down. Coach Les Miles says his Heisman contending running back will not (at least for now) have a restriction on his number of carries. Fournette, who had 12 yards-per-carry on Saturday racking up 228 yards against Auburn, may have restrictions put on him in the future, but Miles isn’t worried about limiting his rushing darling’s workload as of yet. LSU is considered a 24 point favourite versus Syracuse this weekend.

- After 13 seasons in the NBA, Jason Richardson has decided to call it a career. Known for his highlight reel talent and glory years in Golden State, the Michigan State alum signed on to play for the Atlanta Hawks this season before electing to retire. The 34-year-old swingman has hit the court as a member of the Warriors, Bobcats, Suns, Magic and 76ers. 2010 saw Richardson’s longest playoff run as a starting force for the Phoenix Suns who were ousted in the Western Conference Finals by the eventual champs from Los Angeles. Here are some amazing jams from Jason Richardson from his work as a two-time NBA Slam Dunk Contest champion.
