Sun Spots: From Ice Hockey to Ice Skating

1

This week we take a look at Japan’s next tennis great as well as the JA Raven and a couple of  maestros on ice.

I’ve been enjoying Kimiko Date Krumm’s resurgence on the WTA Tour this past year more than anyone, but with her being 39 and all and Ai Sugiyama calling it quits after the season concludes in a few weeks, who can Japan look to to carry that torch of success? Look no further than 19-year-old Ayumi Morita.

An update on the season that second year backup strong safety Haruki Nakamura of the Baltimore Ravens is having. All pro starting SS Ed Reed has quite a few complimentary things to say about the young 23-year-old.

USC defensive coach Rocky Seto talks about this year’s defensive squad.

A quick look at Yankees Brett Gardner in comparison to former Red Sox/Dodger Dave Roberts.

The San Jose Sharks begin the 2009-10 season this weekend. Here’s a breakdown of the team. Forward Devin Setoguchi is upset with how the Sharks closed the exhibition season. While Paul Kariya of the St. Louis Blues is looking good during the pre-season.  A breakdown of the Blues as well.

Here’s a little sumo news for you. The rise of Asashoryu and the fall of Japanese sumo popularity.

Olympic Gold medalist and Dancing with the Stars champion Apolo Ono just signed a deal with Proctor and Gamble, and apparently keeps in contact with his Dancing with the Stars partner.
