This large cast allows an opportunity for more commentary on multiple pressing issues like “Super Teams” and the NBA becoming competitive again. The Houston Astros were just crowned the World Series Championship on Wednesday. Game 5 between the Astros and Dodgers may have been one of the best Series games in its history. NFL updates are given, in addition to early predictions for the AFC and NFC Championships.

Championship Insights

As the clock strikes 3, it’s usually time for practice when you’re in Athletic Director/Women’s Basketball Coach Misty Opat’s world. However, this was special. Opat and her team of coaches and assistants had just finished setting up for a 16-team preseason JUCO (Junior College) basketball jamboree, here at Rock Valley’s Physical Education Center aka The Nest. The line to get in this tourney is wait-listed and elusive to enter. All day long she is tending to the pressing tasks that mount each day.
