The Seattle Seahawks, Kansas City Chiefs & New Orleans Saints hoped to build upon the success that they had in the 2013 NFL regular season. As it stands right now, each of these teams are struggling to find the momentum that carried them through the regular season last year. Parity is what makes the NFL America’s sport and the Dallas Cowboys, Arizona Cardinals & Baltimore Ravens are definitely taking advantage of every chance they get to move up in the standings. Sitting at or near the top of their respective divisions, these teams are in control of their own destiny and hope to make some noise in the 2014 NFL Playoffs. The Ravens and Cowboys organizations have each hoisted the Lombardi trophy at some point over the past few decades and would love nothing more than to add another championship to the trophy case, while the Cardinals last visit to the Super Bowl ended in defeat.

An argument can be made that these teams are playing the best football in the NFL right now. However, the NFL playoffs are a different style of football where battle tested teams usually emerge victorious. In the AFC, a retooled Denver Broncos offense and a greatly improved defense could help the Broncos win their first Super Bowl title since the glory days of John Elway and Terrell Davis. The Denver Broncos offense is led by Peyton Manning who now holds the record for most passing touchdowns thrown by an NFL quarterback. The only number more important than the number of records that Peyton Manning holds is 1, which is the number of Super Bowls that he has won in his career. Peyton has already achieved demi-God status in the NFL, adding another title to his resume would put him in the conversation of being the best ever to play the game.

Quarterbacks still in search of their first championship that hope to delay Peyton’s ascension to legendary status include Cam Newton, Colin Kaepernick and Philip Rivers. Kapernick and Newton are fighting hard to regain some of the magic from the 2013 NFL regular season in hopes of helping their teams return to the playoffs for a chance to win the games ultimate prize. The Colin Kaeperncik led San Francisco 49ers could be coming to the end of a Philadelphia Eagles type run that has seen them come up short in the Super Bowl as well as two NFC championship games over the last three years. Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers are just scratching the surface of what is possible, while Philip Rivers could be playing the best football of his career. Rivers and the San Diego Chargers will have to fight until the end if they want to reign supreme in the AFC West over the Broncos, but with the type of football the Chargers are playing, the head to head match ups between these two teams will go a long way in determining who wins that division.

There is still a lot of football left to be played and Russell Wilson & the Seattle Seahawks are not going to relinquish that title without a fight. Regardless of who comes out on top in the end, it’s going to be one awesome ride and Fanatics Authentic is going to be there every step of the way bringing you the most sought after authentic sports memorabilia from the NFL.

The San Francisco Giants and Kansas City Royals personify the true meaning of wild card. Both teams fought hard to put themselves in a position where they had an opportunity to play for the Commissioner’s trophy and they surely have made the most of it. Their destination is the same, but the path that they took to the World Series was very different. In the American League, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Baltimore Orioles, Detroit Tigers & Oakland Athletics all had dreams of playing in the World Series when the post season started. After the Royals disposed of the Oakland Athletics, America was treated to two American League Division Series of epic proportions. The Detroit Tigers versus the Baltimore Orioles on one end and the Kansas City Royals versus the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on the other. Both the Kansas City Royals and Baltimore Orioles made quick work of their opponent. The Royals disposed of the Angels with a three game sweep and the Orioles did the same thing on the other end of the Bracket taking care of the Detroit Tigers and their exceptional pitching staff that included Anibal Sanchez, David Price, Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer.

The American League Championship Series opened with both teams coming in well rested. Adam Jones, Nelson Cruz and Chris Davis had every reason to be optimistic about their showdown with the less celebrated Kansas City Royals. The Orioles feeling of optimism quickly faded after the first two games of the series that saw the Royals win games 1 & 2 of the series by a score of 8 - 6 and 6 - 4 respectively. Scoring was at a premium in the final two games, the result however was the same, Alex Gordon, Salvador Perez & ALCS M.V.P. Lorenzo Cain helped the Royals to close out the Orioles by winning games 3 and 4 by a score of 2 to 1 in each game.

In professional sports, rest versus rust is a question that may never have a definitive answer, the Kansas City Royals will come into the World Series well rested. The San Francisco Giants on the other hand will be battle tested and should have momentum on their side. The Giants came into the playoffs as a wild card as well, but faced a little more adversity on their way to their third World Series Appearance in five years. After making quick work of Andrew McCutchen and the Pittsburgh Pirates, it was onto a star studded Washington Nationals team with Bryce Harper, Stephen Strasburg & Jordan Zimmerman. Unfortunately for the Nationals, the cohesiveness of the Giants outshined the star power of Washington in a series where three games were won by a margin of one point.

In the National League Championship Series, Buster Posey and the Giants remained focus, dismantling the Saint Louis Cardinals by winning the series 4 – 1. Mat Carpenter and Matt Holliday put up a valiant effort and tried to will the Cardinals to the World Series. In the end, the Cardinals were doomed by too many mistakes and a walk off home run by Travis Ishikawa in game five of the series.

In the end, the team of destiny, the Kansas City Royals were no match for Buster Posey and the San Francisco Giants who are now considered a dynasty, with three World Series wins in the last five years. Kansas City fought hard and entered game 6 of the series down 3 – 2 after dropping the series opener at home. The Giants were embarrassed in game 6 by a score of 10 – 0, it seemed as if the Royals were ready to close out the Giants in game 7 at home, but World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner and the Giants would not be denied. Bumgarner entered game 7 of the series on short rest and pitched five dominant shutout innings. The San Francisco Giants are once again the World Series champs & Fanatics Authentic is definitely your source for sports memorabilia of some of the biggest moments from the 2014 World Series.

The 2014-2015 NBA Regular Season is upon us and after an historic run with the Miami Heat, Lebron James has returned home to the Cleveland Cavaliers to team with Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving. The prodigal son returns home to Cleveland to try and end a 50 year championship drought. The Eastern Conference standings will look much different in 2014 as opposed to what it looked like last year. As a result of free agency, many teams in the Eastern Conference feel as if this could be their year to represent the East in the 2015 NBA Finals.

The Miami Heat suffered the biggest lost in free agency when Lebron James decided to return home to Cleveland. However, Pat Riley was determined to put a competitive team out on the floor by resigning superstars Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade. In addition to the Heat Lifers, Riley acquired some solid role players in Luol Deng, Danny Granger & Josh McRoberts. Many of the predictions for the 2014-2015 NBA Regular Season did not include the Miami Heat battling for a top position in the East, but this retooled Miami Heat roster has come out strong and is proving there is in fact life after Lebron James.

As we move to the North East, everyone expected Lebron James and the newly formed big 3 in Cleveland to come out and dominate opponents right out of the gate. A quick glance at the Eastern Conference standings will definitely put that theory to rest. Many people forget that the original Big 3 of Lebron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh needed a quarter of the season to learn how to play together. The same growing pains that the Miami Heat experienced in 2010 seem to be similar to what the Cavaliers are experiencing now. Yes, Love, Irving & James make a formidable trio, but the bench will be critical to their success this season.

The Eastern Conference is considered by many to be junior varsity basketball, while the big boys of the NBA play in the Western Conference. Seven teams in the West won 50 or more games during the 2013 NBA Regular Season. In the Eastern Conference, only the Miami Heat andIndiana Pacers accomplished this feat. The San Antonio Spurs won the NBA Championship last season. The biggest threat to the San Antonio Spurs once again representing the West in the NBA Finals is the Oklahoma City Thunder, but the injury bug has hit Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, which is going to make it tough for them to compete in a stacked Western Conference. If the Thunder cannot overcome these injuries, the Houston Rockets, Memphis Grizzlies and Golden State Warriors will surely provide the Spurs with a formidable challenge in their quest to come out of the West.

In the off season, the Houston Rockets wanted to create a Big 3 of their own by trying to secure Chris Bosh after Lebron James departed Miami. Bosh eventually resigned with the Heat and the Rockets were now in a position where they needed to replace the lost offensive fire power of Chandler Parsons, which they did by signing Trevor Ariza to a four-year $32 million deal. The regular season is just starting, but if the Rockets continue to build upon their early success, there is no question that they should secure one of the top four seeds in the Western Conference Playoffs.

The Memphis Grizzlies and Golden State Warriors find themselves in similar positions after the first few games of the 2014-2015 NBA Regular Season. After consistent success the past few years, these teams can no longer surprise anyone and are now being hunted in the very competitive Western Conference. After very impressive performances early on, there is no longer a question of which team has the best backcourt in the NBA, it’s the Golden State Warriors. Stephen Curry & Klay Thompson have ended that discussion with exceptional performances thus far. Along for the ride are Andre Iguodala, David Lee & Andrew Bogut. The Warriors definitely have the talent, but it remains to be seen if they have the grit to take down the champs out West.

Marc Gasol, Zach Randolph and the rest of the Memphis Grizzlies have the same goal, beat the Spurs. After strong performances in their last four post season appearances, simply making it to the playoffs will not be enough for the Grizzlies fan base, this team needs to make a run to the 2015 NBA Finals. There is a lot of basketball to be played between now and April, but Fanatics Authentic will be there to capture all of the historic and record breaking performances. Fans looking for sports collectibles and memorabilia to cherish some of their favorite moments from the 2014-2015 NBA Regular Season will surely find a huge selection of NBA memorabilia to choose from in the Fanatics Authentic online shop.

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.
