Women's Soccer Player Adds Another Twist to the Concussion Narrative

You almost certainly haven’t heard of Lori Chalupny. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t learn her story.

The 26 year old is, according to people who know these things, “the most complete and versatile player” on the United States women’s soccer program.

Except she’s not going to play for the Americans anymore, despite the fact that she’s still a dominant force on the Atlanta Beat of Women’s Professional Soccer and easily boasts enough talent to star on the Red, White, and Blue squad.

Why not? Concussions.

Here’s the deal: Chalupny has had five or six concussions during her career and “the U.S. Soccer Federation, in consultation with one of the leading experts on sports head trauma, has not cleared her to play for the national team.” Read more

Game 4 Of ALCS Is Second Most Watched MLB Postseason Game Ever On Cable TV

Last night’s Game 4 of the American League Championship Series on TBS was the second most watched MLB postseason game ever on cable television, drawing 9.9 million viewers.

Rangers-Yankees delivered a 6.3 rating and trails only the 2008 ALCS Game 7 matchup between Boston and Tampa Bay (7.9/13.4 million viewers).

Locally, Game 4 delivered a 17.1 rating in the New York market and a 26.5 rating in the Dallas Fort-Worth market.

Through four games, the 2010 LCS on TBS is averaging a 5.0 rating and more than 8 million total viewers, up 46 percent and 44 percent respectively from last year’s Dodgers-Phillies series.


Tony Kornheiser Signs New ESPN 980 Deal

Tony Kornheiser, a former Washington Post sports columnist turned yodeler, has signed a tw0-year extension with Red Zebra Broadcasting to continue The Tony Kornheiser Show on ESPN 980 in Washington, DC.

Kornheiser returned to the radio last September after a hiatus because of his Monday Night Football duties.

“Tony’s show is one of the most popular shows on the radio, not just in D.C. but nationwide,” Red Zebra director of programming Chuck Sapienza said in a release. “His fans will be happy to know that not only will his show remain the same, but Tony’s program is streamed and available for download at ESPN980.com.”

This announcement comes on the heels of Kornheiser’s show getting picked up by ESPN Radio as a daily podcast.

Regardless of what you think about Kornheiser on ESPN’s Pardon the Interruption, his radio show is worth a listen – just don’t go in expecting sports talk.

You’re more likely to hear Kornheiser analyze  and dissect Don & Betty Draper than discuss the Washington Redskins, which is what makes the show absolutely brilliant.
