Sports News: Us Open, Lewis Hamilton, Stanley Cup Finals, MLB

McIllroy ready for Congressional

The US Open is back and ready to take place at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland starting tomorrow June 16, and ending on Sunday, June 19. This edition of the event will not count with the participation of Tiger Woods, but it does feature other golfers which are on fire at the moment, and that is the case of Rory McIlroy, who says to feel quite confident with his game. The 22-year-old star from Northern Ireland who has 2 major wins under his belt had a couple of rounds of practice on Wednesday and Thursday and is ready to face the big names in the sport such as Phil Mickelson, Luke Donald, and Lee Westwood.

Hamilton stays with McLaren

Despite some rumors about his departure from the McLaren team, Lewis Hamilton has said that he’s not planning to leave for Red Bull in the near future. The 2008 world champion says that even though he is constantly chatting with managers from teams such as Ferrari, Mercedes Benz and Red Bull, he feels that it is not his time to leave, as he mentioned that his car is quite competitive and his team is the only other one that has won races in 2011.

Seventh Stanley Cup Game tonight

Everything is set for the seventh game of the 2011 Stanley Cup finals which will take place at Rogers Arena at Vancouver tonight, and statistics favors the Canucks, whom have the chance of acquiring their first NHL championship trophy as game seven has been won by home teams 12 out of the last 15 times when a series went that far. Vancouver won the first two games of the series, and Boston came up victorious the next two at TD Garden, then the Canucks won again at home, and the Bruins also acquire another win at Boston, which means that playing on their own courts is what has filled both teams with the necessary confidence to come up with positive results, and if everything continues to go the same route, then the cup is most likely to move from Chicago to Canadian grounds.

Angels beat Seattle at Safeco Field

On Tuesday night, the Angels acquired an important 4-0 victory over the Mariners, leaving Anaheim at second place with 31/2 games behind the Rangers, the leaders of the American League West, the weakest division in the MLB. The Angels took advantage of the poor offensive from Seattle and if they continue to gain momentum, they might be able to fight for the first spot against Texas, who currently carry the worst record (36-32) amongst the 6 divisional leaders.
