Latest Lines

Another week over and more exciting moments in sports behind us. Here are the biggest lines of the past week.

1. Penn State's football scandal is the biggest headline of the weekend, as the former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky was accused of molesting eight boys over the past 15 years. He was released on $100,000 bail.

2. The biggest college football game of the year was played on Saturday, when No. 1 ranked LSU took on Alabama. LSU won in overtime in a low-scoring game.

3. Giants pitcher and LSU alum, Brian Wilson, was sporting his alma mater colors and spirited personality on ESPN's College GameDay, where he picked LSU to beat Alabama.

4. One of the biggest racing events of the year, The Breeders Cup, a series of Thoroughbred horse races, took place this weekend.

5. The NFL continues to excite fans (and disappoint in my case). The Baltimore Ravens beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the last drive of Sunday Night Football—with only eight seconds left in the game.

6. The Miami Dolphins finally picked up a win, killing the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday. The Indianapolis Colts remain the only winless team this season.

7. Runners took foot in the famous New York City Marathon this weekend, and the couple below become engaged shortly after completing the run.

8. USA softball stunner Jennie Finch raised $30,000, receiving a dollar for every racer she passed while running the NYC Marathon. Other celebs raising money running were model Christy Turlington and Dancing with the Stars alum Apollo Ohno.

9. Former Heavyweight Champion of the World, Joe "Smokin" Frazier passed away yesterday from liver cancer. Frazier was only 67.

Enjoy your week and have fun using these lines to display your sportyness!

(Also, don't miss the first Thursday night NFL game since the start of the season. The San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders battle it out for the AFC West. Go Chargers!)
