Superbowl, La Liga and A-Rod: weekend mixed bag!

Lots and lots to catch up on! Several articles posted by this guy (points thumbs at self) over the last week on Irish Central and the BetDash blog also. Preview and links below. You never know, maybe one or two take your fancy, maybe you have time to click a few links. If so, great, if not, have a great weekend anyway!!

Can the 49er's rookie quarterback Colin Kaepernick really lead his team to Superbowl glory?
Preview: It doesn’t happen often. The Superbowl is a sacred place, a land that is ridiculously difficult to get to, and even more difficult again to conquer. Many have tried and only a chosen few have prevailed. The challenge increases exponentially when your team has a rookie QB at the helm. Nevertheless that’s exactly what San Francisco will try this coming Sunday night, as they go into the game with rookie Colin Kaepernick leading the way.

Weekly La Liga Preview
Preview: If you’re a fan of La Liga in any shape or form, the following is probably a silly question: did you catch Wednesday night’s El Classico?

Starting the tournament with a visit to Twickenham is probably not going to be a massive boost for Scottish confidence.

New York Yankees find possible solution to A-Rod problem
Preview: So, I guess we know why the New York Yankees really signed Kevin Youkilis. Perhaps they knew something other than regular injury was up with their third baseman Alex Rodriguez. Turns out A-Rod has been abusing the juice, again. Yes, one of the greatest frauds to have ever walked on a Major League Baseball diamond, has once again, been caught with his pants down, and with a giant steroid needle stuck firmly in his backside. A Miami paper has published the results of a three month long investigation and A-Rod is the biggest name on the list. Judge for yourself, but the evidence certainly looks compelling.
