Yanks lone bright spot for Sports Weekend.

The New York Yankees were the only team that came out victorious this weekend. This entire weekend has served the bombers well. They took a 2-0 ALCS lead following a 13 inning 4-3 lead over the Angels that ended early this morning. The game took over 5 hours to play. The two teams now switch coasts to L.A. where Game 3 will resume tomorrow afternoon.

The Virginia Tech Hokies were manhandled by the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Saturday night. The offense ran all over, the once 4th ranked Hokies. Bud Foster will definitely have a sour taste in his mouth going into the bi-week before the Hokies take on UNC, a nationally broadcasted game on ESPN on the 29th. The Hokies loss did not come without consequences. Going into the game, they were ranked #4 in the AP Poll and had a legitimate shot at having a good ranking in the BCS. After today's rankings were released, the Hokies are now #15 in the AP Poll and #14 in the BCS, thus ending any slim chance for the national title.

The Giants simply did not show up today to play. The defense got their behind kicked against Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints. Brees continued his offensive domination and did not make the Giants look like the former undefeated team that they were coming into the game. The Giants will certainly have to make improvements on the defense before their next game. They will also need to keep an eye out for the Saints, as this could be another potential match up in the NFC championship game.
