Sports Wrap for yesterday: Brodeurs 500th victory, Tebow becomes the NCAA’s first 20/20 player, Texas Tech upsets Oklahoma and more news
Brodeur Earns 500th Victory as Devils Down Flyers
Congrats to Martin Brodeur. Last night he became the second goal tender to reach the 500 win mark in his career as the New Jersey Devils beat down the Philadelphia Flyers 6-2. It was Brodeur’s fourth attempt at it but he was able to pull it off last night.
Brodeur joined Hall of Famer Patrick Roy as the only men to reach the milestone. Roy retired in 2003 with 551 wins.
“It means a lot,” said Brodeur, “We both played for some great teams. You play to be successful and I’ve been fortunate to play on good teams.”
I’m so happy for Brodeur. He deserves it so much. It’s just too bad that the Devils are so bad this year.
Tim Tebow makes history
Tim Tebow became the first player in NCAA history with at least 20 touchdowns passing and rushing in the same season as No. 14 Florida hammered Florida Atlantic 59-20 Saturday.
Teabow is considered by many to be the Heisman Trophy frontrunner at this point. Despite his individual success, the Gators were eliminated from contention for the SEC east title with their 3 loses and Georgia’s win.
Oklahoma goes down to Texas Tech
Texas Tech upset #4 Oklahoma last night, eliminating them from contention for the national title.
