No matter your preferred sport, this past week had some excitement for everyone.
We're mere days away from Game 1 of the World Series after several dramatic rounds of postseason play. The Los Angeles Dodgers are making their first appearance in the Fall Classic since 1988 thanks to fiery play from Yasiel Puig, Justin Turner and the rest of their stacked roster. As of Friday, the American League champion has yet to be decided.
The NBA season got off to a somber start as new Boston Celtics forward Gordon Hayward suffered a devastating ankle injury that will likely keep him off the court for the rest of the season.
