Behind the Star

THE STAR:

Name: Larry Fitzgerald

Hometown: Minneapolis, Minnesota

Team: Arizona Cardinals

Position: Wide Receiver

Over the years, I’ve encountered a lot of folks. I’ve met a number of people. Can’t say many are like Larry Fitzgerald.

Sure, he catches a trillion passes a year and stays a favorite on fantasy football teams. Commendable, but to me, the best part is his servant heart. I first heard the name when I was a senior at Duncanville High School (just outside of Dallas). Opened up the mailbox, and there was Fitz on the cover of my Fellowship of Christian Athletes magazine, rocking a Pittsburgh jersey. After reading his story, I knew he had been divinely placed on a platform, and would only excel from there.

In 2004, Fitz started the Fitzgerald First Down Fund, just one year after his mother died from Breast Cancer. It focuses on bringing awareness to the disease…

3 Amigos Sports Report

The Arizona Cardinals are coming ready to play this year with a new head coach and starting QB hoping they will be still playing football come this January.

They still have Pro Bowl wide receiver who many of us have slowly forgotten about Larry Fitzgerald. With a new veteran QB to throw to him in Carson Palmer where do you rank Fitzgerald among the rest of the receivers in the league?

Mercury Recap: Lynx-80 Mercury-69

Despite Turasi’s strong game, Mercury fall to Moore and Minnesota!

After becoming the focus or as Coach Gains likes to call it the lead guard, she has seen her scoring go up rapidly like where it was in 2009 and 2011.

However despite her strong effort of 28 points, the Mercury weren’t able to hold off star and former national champion with the Huskies, Maya Moore.

She had a double double of 28 points and 16 rebounds, and the defending WNBA champion Minnesota Lynx beat the Mercury(2-4) 80-69 at U.S Airways Center.

For the Mercury, there 2-4 riding below the championship predictions, but they have a lot of time to make that up, and one reason is the lingering pain of Britney Grinner.

Grinner has made an impact every time she has come out on the court, even if it doesn’t show up on the stat…
