1. Dominican Republic Win WBC-  The Dominican republic has always been a baseball power house, producing all star after all star in the MLB. However, they had failed to live up to their potential in the first two World Baseball Classics, bowing out in the pool stage in 2009 after a semi finals appearance in 2006. But they made it count this year, riding a dominating pitching staff to the title. That domination was on display in the Finals, when they shut out powerful Puerto Rico  3-0 in the finals, closing out a fantastic and heated WBC. Congrats to the Dominican Republic on their big win!

2. Obama Gets Notre Dame Jersey- Remember when Notre Dame basketball unveiled these eye sores for jerseys earlier in the year? Well President Barack Obama did, saying that the “neon green thing didn’t work for him” when he was filling out his bracket on ESPN. Well when head coach Mike Brey got wind of these comments, he thought it only seemed fitting that Obama get his own jersey. Check out the present that was sent to the White House earlier this week.

What do you think of the jersey?
