Sport Sunday

Robert Gronkowski

Sport Sunday:

England: Premier League Soccer features Bournemouth vs. Liverpool.  Liverpool took their October meeting 1-0.  Bournemouth have now lost three of their last four league games, and are missing several key players, but played well last week in their meeting with Arsenal.  In Spain, Real Madrid scored a last second goal to tie Barcelona 1-1 yesterday.  

Australia:  PGA Australian Championship wraps up the Final Round.  

Anis Ben-Hatira

Germany:  Bundesliga Soccer: Darmstadt 98 vs. Hamburg at Darmstadt today.  There are lots of questions concerning the fitness of Darmstadt midfielder Anis Ben-Hatira,  who has been struggling with swelling in his ankle.

Japan:  While you were sleeping, the Champions Cup was run in Japan.  Total purse is 180 million yen (approximately $1.6 million, a little more than half to the winning horse), with a 3 million yen ($27,000) bonus for the winning owner. 

Trevor Signorino

USA:  In NCAA Basketball Marquette travels to Georgia (both teams are 5-2).  Some division 1 teams are still playing weak opponents (Georgetown takes on Elon), but in this Big East-SEC matchup in Athens Luke Fischer and Yante Maten battle in the paint while seniors Jajuan Johnson and J.J. Frazier command the backcourt.   

The big stories of the day will be released in the early evening, when NCAA Football Bowl selections, including the championship playoff, will be announced. 

NFL:  In Sunday night football, the Carolina Panthers (4-7) travel to the Seattle Seahawks (7-3-1). The Panthers defeated Seattle twice last season, including a 31-24 win in the divisional playoffs in which they took a 31-0 halftime lead.  

In New England, the Gronk's injuries have sadly sidelined him for the season.  Football in general has suddenly become much less fun to watch.
