Djokovic Ousts Murray, Wes Welker Suspended And Outraged, Michael Sam Signs With Cowboys


It was the quarterfinals of the US Open and the matches were starting to heat up.  On Wednesday, we were treated to a match-up between Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray.  These guys have become rivals over the years and seem to always meet up in big tournaments.  It was a close match, but in the end The Joker (Djokovic) ousted his foe to advance.  Keep watching the US Open this weekend, and you will be guaranteed to catch some amazing tennis.  


Wes WelkerIn the NFL, the Denver Broncos’ Wes Welker was suspended for 4 games.  The primary reason was that Welker abused amphetamines, specifically the drug “Molly” when he was at The Kentucky Derby.  Wednesday, Welker told the media that he was appalled by the claims, saying “That’s a joke. I don’t do marijuana, I don’t do drugs. I don’t do any drugs”.  Welker continued by saying that anybody who questions his commitment to the game, saying “I want to make one thing abundantly clear: I would never knowingly take a substance to gain a competitive advantage in any way. Anyone who has ever played a down with me, lifted a weight with me, even eaten a meal with me, knows that I focus purely on what I put in my body and on the hard work I put in year round to perform at the highest levels year-in and year-out”.  Clearly, Welker is very upset about the suspension, but the timing may be fortuitous for him, as Welker is currently recovering from a concussion and could use the rest.

Finally, in the NFL, the St. Louis Rams may have cut the first openly gay player from their roster, but that doesn’t mean that there is no demand for his services.  Sam is still a young defensive player with a lot of talent and the Dallas Cowboys made their interest in his talents very well known.  The Cowboys signed Michael Sam to their practice squad.  This means that he will be at all the teams practices, but won’t dress from the game.  The Dallas Cowboys defense is truly terrible right now, however, so it may be possible that Sam will actually see some game action later in the season.
