Weekend Scoop: Sports Edition

by Kay Lynn

Australian Open tennis courts

There are two major sporting events today.  The men’s final at the Australian Open (tennis)and the Pro Bowl (football).  One was epic and  broke a record for the longest grand slam singles final.  We watched it in awe and amazement while downing coffee and croissants.

This afternoon, it’ll be time for the NFL Pro Bowl where you won’t see great play, but millions of us will watch anyway. It’s football!
