I have been working at Prettyman Broadcasting since 2010, doing a little bit of everything, but my passion is Sports! I graduated from Shepherd University in 2010, with a degree in Mass Communications and New Media. I hosted a sports radio show there for 3 years. I love sports writing too, so expect some fun articles on this blog. I love talking NFL, NHL, MLB and NBA. Make sure you comment on the blogs too, because I love discussing sports.

Okay, first off: Congratulations to the Washington Nationals! 2012 NL East Champions. It has been a great season for the Nats and this is icing on the Regular Season Cake. Still much more to do in the playoffs though, but great start for DC. Looks like the rest of the NL playoff teams will be the Reds, Giants, Braves and Cardinals.
As for the AL: The Yankees have a 1 game lead in the East, the Orioles and Athletics have Wild Card spots at least and the Tigers won the Central. As for the AL West: The A's are just 1 game back of the Rangers with 2 head to head games left. Should be an exciting finish. Could all end tonight though.
To the NFL: The Bears blew out the Cowboys last night to end Week 4. Decent week that included the 49ers blowing out the Jets 34-0, a great 28-27 Packers win over the (0-4) Saints and the Texans, Cardinals and Falcons staying undefeated. I like that after the Jets get shutout at home by the 49ers and lose Santonio Holmes to injury, they get to play the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football. Only the Jets would have that luck.
The Redskins got back on track with a nice comeback by RGIII at the end of the Buccaneers game after the Redskins blew a big lead and kicker Billy Cundiff missed 3 kicks. He made the game winner though, which is what counts.
Week 5 starts this Thursday with the undefeated Cardinals at the Rams.
