The wait is over, the NFL regular season is officially upon us and the first three weeks of the season have exceeded expectations. The Cincinnati Bengals, Philadelphia Eagles & Arizona Cardinals have all produced perfect records up to this point. While this may be a surprising statistic for a Philadelphia Eagles team that trailed at the half in each of the first two games, the Arizona Cardinals are picking up right where they left off. The NFC West is the most competitive division in the NFL and the Cardinals failed to make the playoffs in 2013 with a 10 – 6 record. The sting of missing the playoffs last year has ignited a very talented Arizona Cardinals team that is looking to take down the power houses in the NFC West. The Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers reign supreme in this division, which is why, if the Cardinals want to avoid meeting the same fate as last year, they are going to have to keep up the pace. Seattle and San Francisco are second and third in the NFC West respectively with the Seattle Seahawks coming of a strong performance against the Denver Broncos where Russell Wilson once again led his team on a game winning drive. We are a long way from crowning an NFC West Champion, but it sure is going to be fun to watch these teams compete for the ultimate prize.

In the AFC, perennial contenders like the Baltimore Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers & New England Patriots are still competitive in their divisions, but not as dominant as they once were. The door is now officially open for Andy Dalton and the Cincinnati Bengals to take the next step and become an elite team in the NFL. If the Bengals ultimately want to capture the Vince Lombardi trophy, they are going to have to run through the best of the AFC, which means a matchup with Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos is inevitable. After falling short of the Super Bowl last year, the Denver Broncos are definitely not suffering from a Super Bowl hang over and they look poised to be just as dominant as they were last year. Manning once again has the Denver Broncos offense running on all cylinders and Wes Welker, Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders are the beneficiaries of Peyton Manning’s precision passing. John Elway made some big moves in the off season and the team looks strong early on, but this team is constructed to win now and anything less than a Super Bowl victory will be considered a failure.

The standings are sure to change over the remainder of the season as the NFL progresses towards selecting the final teams that will battle for football’s ultimate prize. However, in football, as it is in life, it’s more about the journey as opposed to the destination, so football fans strap in, because the rest of the NFL season is going to be one awesome ride.

September, just another month? I think NOT! Sports fans all over the globe know the significance of September. The first week of September fans are treated to an action packed week 1 of the NFL regular season. As exciting as the NFL regular season can be, by the end of September, fans are waiting in anticipation of the MLB Post Season. Last season, the Boston Red Sox disposed of the Detroit Tigers in six games in the American League Championship Series to punch their ticket to the World Series. The St. Louis Cardinals were the National League representative in the 2013 World Series, but they were no match for the Boston Red Sox, who were spurred on by the tragic events that took place at the Boston Marathon earlier in the year.

The 2014 MLB Postseason is almost upon us and while some teams return from last year’s playoffs, the landscape will undoubtedly be different. The most glaring omission from the playoffs this year is the 2013 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox. While The Pittsburgh Pirates, Los Angeles Dodgers & The St. Louis Cardinals all hope to draw on their experience from last year to help elevate them to the next level. The ultimate goal for each of these teams is to be the last one standing and to hoist the Commissioner’s Trophy at the end of the World Series. The Washington Nationals & Los Angeles Angels Of Anaheim return to the post season as well after a short hiatus and bring a stable of exceptional talent with them to try and capture post season glory. Mike Trout and a revitalized Albert Pujols hope to bring enough fire power to the party to help bring a championship to Los Angeles. In Washington, the team looks to capitalize on their youth, with Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper leading the charge. The young nucleus of players that Washington boasts, provides a strong foundation that could catapult their team to post season success.

Many teams head into the post season with aspirations to bring the Commissioner’s trophy back home, but in the end, only one team will make this dream a reality. As the playoffs progress, many hearts will be broken before a champion is ultimately crowned, but one thing is for sure, it’s going to be an exciting ride.

History repeated itself this summer as the NBA saw a free agency frenzy just as crazy as that of 2010. The course of the league has shifted dramatically, as a number of big name stars have found new homes in the past several months.

The dominating story of the NBA off-season was LeBron James’ return to Cleveland. After four years in Miami that saw four NBA Finals appearances and two championships, James decided to opt out of his contract in the summer of 2014 after a Finals loss to the Spurs. What appeared to be an attempt to renegotiate his contract with fellow superstars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh turned out to be much, much more. LeBron decided to part ways with the Heat and returned to his beloved Northeast Ohio with a two year contract and a love letter to his hometown published by Sports Illustrated. With all-star point guard Kyrie Irving and the addition of Kevin Love, Cleveland quickly jumped from perennial loser to NBA title favorite with King James now on the talented roster.

Luckily for LeBron’s former team, the Miami Heat, not all was lost. While losing their two-time NBA Finals MVP, Miami was able to retain big man Chris Bosh with a five year contract valued at over $118 million. It was highly rumored that Bosh would leave South Beach for Houston, especially if James were to depart, but the center decided to finish what he started and remain a member of the Miami Heat organization. Fan favorite Dwyane Wade also proclaimed himself a “Heat Lifer” by resigning with Miami and will now be joined by first round draft pick and last year’s NCAA Tournament Most Outstanding Player, Shabazz Napier.

Miami’s Big Three were certainly not the only MVP caliber players on this off-seasons free agency watch. After much speculation that he would be leaving the Big Apple for a team with a better shot to contend for a title, Carmelo Anthony decided to resign with the Knicks. Many thought that Melo would be teaming up with former MVP Derrick Rose and 2014 Defensive Player of the Year Joakim Noah in Chicago, but Anthony decided to trust the team management of the legendary Phil Jackson and signed a five-year deal with New York.

A number of other big free agency signings occurred in July that will surely shake the Eastern and Western Conference standings. Across the border, Kyle Lowry decided to give it another go with Toronto after his break out season where he averaged nearly 18 points a game and led the Raptors to a playoff berth. The Los Angeles Lakers lost their two-time champion forward Pau Gasol to the Chicago Bulls, where he will anchor one of the best front courts in the NBA next season. The state of Texas saw a major team swap as up and coming superstar Chandler Parsons left Houston for a Dallas team that also brought in center Tyson Chandler and point guard Raymond Felton. Nostalgic Hornets fans were pleased with the team’s return to the city of Charlotte & the valiant effort they gave against the eventual Eastern Conference Finals champs in the playoffs. However, Michael Jordan was never satisfied with just making it to the playoffs during his playing days and his tenure as an executive will be no different. In order to help build upon an already strong foundation, the team signed former Pacer and playoff hero Lance Stephenson to a deal.

Keep up with the free agency frenzy and upcoming season with the Fanatics Authentic NBA collection. With authentic signed basketballs, jerseys, photos, and more from all your favorite players, there will definitely be a surplus of basketball collectibles to add to memorabilia collections across the U.S.

The end of the NHL season is a time where players and coaches alike can sit back and reflect on the achievements accomplished during the regular season and playoffs. Only one team will raise Lord Stanley’s trophy, but that should not diminish the great accomplishments that many players work for over the course of the season, and the post season awards look to honor the biggest and brightest stars of the season. The 2014 NHL season was amazing and it came to an end with a tremendous win by the Los Angeles Kings who were crowned champions for the second time in three years. Both new and familiar faces took home hockey’s greatest honors at the 2014 NHL Awards in Las Vegas this June.

In his first year as an NHL head coach, former goaltending great Patrick Roy was just as talented behind the bench as he was on the ice. Roy took over the reigns of his former team by leading the Colorado Avalanche from last place in the Western Conference to a number one seed in the Stanley Cup Playoffs in the span of a year. The Avs coach deservedly took home the Jack Adams Award as the NHL’s best coach over Detroit’s Mike Babcok and Tampa Bay’s Jon Cooper.

Another new face to the Colorado Avalanche took home an NHL award as well, with Nathan MacKinnon winning the Calder Trophy for the league’s top rookie. In 2014, MacKinnon became the youngest player to ever win the award after the 18 year old tallied 63 points in his debut season with Colorado. Alongside the NHL’s youngest captain Gabriel Landeskog, the rookie from Nova Scotia led the Avalanche to a number one playoff seed and made his name as one of hockey’s biggest stars.

Behind the pipes, there was no better player in the 2013-14 season than Tuukka Rask. The Boston Bruins goaltender filled in more than adequately after the departure of the franchises former superstar Tim Thomas. Rask led the NHL in shut outs and was a key reason why the Bruins took home this year’s President’s Cup as the team with the best regular season record. With a .930 save percentage in net, the First-Team All-Star edged out Tampa’s Ben Bishop and Colorado’s Semyon Varlamov for the Vezina Trophy victory.

The Chicago Blackhawks notoriously stingy defense can be credited to the stellar play of Duncan Keith. The Hawks defenseman capped off an incredible 2013-14 NHL season by recording over 60 points for the second time in his career. Keith ranked sixth in the league in assists and was a major factor in Chicago’s appearance in the Western Conference Finals against Los Angeles. Duncan Keith was the recipient of the 2014 Norris Trophy as the league’s best defenseman, the second time the Blackhawk has taken home this honor.

For the fourth time in his illustrious career, Washington’s Alex Ovechkin was awarded the Rocket Richard Trophy. Each year the Rocket Richard Trophy is given out to the player with the most goals scored in the regular season, which has been Ovechkin more often than not in the recent years. The perennial all-star’s 51 lamp lighters in 2014 led all NHL players and only contributed to the player’s outstanding legacy on the ice. Ovechkin topped off Anaheim’s Corey Perry and San Jose’s Joe Pavelski to take home this year’s goal scoring honor.

No player in the game of hockey has been as talented as the great Pittsburgh Penguin Sidney Crosby in the last decade of play. Pittsburgh’s former number one overall pick and the deemed second coming of Wayne Gretzky hit the century mark in points scored for the fifth time in his short but incredible NHL career. With 104 in 2014, Crosby led all NHL players in points scored to take home his second Art Ross Trophy. To add to the hardware accumulated by Sid the Kid this year, the Penguins hero also took home his second Hart Memorial Trophy as league MVP. It goes without saying that Sidney Crosby is most certainly on his way to becoming one of the greatest players to ever grace the ice.
