a player goes full pelt into him in 2012, and puts him in a wheelchair. But now the Clippers have signed Chris Paul, things might well change in Tinseltown; That the season is actually going ahead after an horrific labour struggle that has limited the season to just 66 games instead of 82 (Christmas Day signals the start)
The resurgence of one Dale Earnhardt Jr and Jeff Gordon, who have given their fans a bit of hope going into 2011. And Lord, I want to thank you for my smoking hot wife tonight Lisa, my two children Eli and Emma as we like to call em the 'Little Es'. And we pray for the drivers tonight and may they put on a performance worthy of Ferragamo Belt Original
And finally: Thoughts go to Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, who might never play the game again after a neck injury. While many think he might be fit and OK, we don't want to imagine what might happen if Ferragamo Belt On Pants
Making us sad: National League MVP Ryan Braun tested positive for performance enhancing drugs just weeks after winning the award for being one of the game's best players. If he loses his appeal, Braun will get a 50 game suspension, which will torch his Milwaukee Brewers' hopes of a second consecutive National League Central title; Albert Pujols' decision to take a 10 year, $250m deal in Los Angeles/Anaheim instead of staying in St Louis. We thought he was better than that. Oh, and a note to Anaheim fans: he won't last for ten seasons!
Making us sad: That there was an off season marred by bickering by NFL Owners and NFL Players; That Super Bowl XLVI was such a complete organisational mess in Dallas, which angered so many fans who had paid so much yet couldn't see the game; Chicago Bears' wide receiver Sam Hurd being arrested on drug dealing charges despite being well paid and having a sign on fee of over $1m.
Making us happy: An incredible season was capped when Tony Stewart pipped Carl Edwards for the 2011 title at Homestead International Speedway by winning the race. He'd promised to win the race before it was run; Trevor Bayne an unknown insider, taking home the Daytona 500 in February in a dramatic race; Gucci Belt Buckle Mens
When thinking back to the US Sport this year, it's difficult to know whether to laugh or cry. While almost every sport gave fans fantastic Championship games or series, it also gave us moments that if we're honest had us screaming to the heavens: "Why? Why? Why?" as everything seemed to go wrong behind the scenes.
Making us sad: Some of the comments mostly utterly unrepeatable on this column during the NBA Labour discussions; The amount of criticism 'fans' still give to LeBron James. Get over it, guys he's one of the greatest players of this generation. Seven games of absolute drama and something worth tuning into in the wee hours; The fact that Major League Baseball has wrapped up a labour deal and it was pretty quietly done something that sports has needed after the collective NFL and NBA embarrassments; The Pittsburgh Pirates remained in contention for the play offs for a while something that their long suffering fans haven't seen for years on end.
Making us happy: Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck, lived up to the hype all season long, although he was beaten to the Heisman Trophy by Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III because 'RG3' was on another planet; Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads and his post game speeches check out his "I am so proud of you guys!" speeches. Bring Kleenex! And lastly, college football's loud, crazy fandom. That, people, is passion. We witnessed it first hand at the University of Georgia, which we recommend visiting for a game.
Making us sad: That the league's best player, Sidney Crosby, suffered concussions, putting him out for most of the 2010 1. And the symptoms are back (they returned in early December). If there is a God, then please, let the kid play! Also was Vancouver fans' behaviour after losing the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals, when they rioted. Not cool.
NFLMaking us happy: The Green Bay Packers beating the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Super Bowl and then going on a sensational 13 0 run before succumbing to the Kansas City in one of the upsets of the 2011 2 season; New England Patriots' owner Bob Kraft hugging Indianapolis Colts' Jeff Saturday after a deal was struck to end the lockout, meaning that we HAD a NFL season in 2011 2; The country's adulation of Denver Broncos' Tim Tebow, who has galvanised his team despite not being the country's most gifted throwing quarterback.
And finally: The Boston Red Sox made us all laugh a bit when they fired manager Terry Francona (yep, the guy who won them two world series after over 80 years of trying!) after a late season collapse left the club without play offs for the first time in years. Team GM Theo Epstein then walked from the club to take over another team with a curse, the Chicago Cubs. If you win in Chicago, Theo, then don't expect to pay for anything in Chicago. We cried. and drivers paid their tributes to their fellow fallen warrior who had had a few races in a stock car pretty recently. We just cried.
this great track. In Jesus name, boogity, boogity, boogity, Amen." Yep, you heard it right. He thanked The Lord for his 'smoking hot wife'. Paterno has subsequently been diagnosed with lung cancer; The deaths of college players Garrett Uekmann (Arkansas), Austin Box (Oklahoma) and Joe Villavisencio (Texas A all gone too soon; The media firestorms that have engulfed Miami and Ohio State, proving that beyond all doubt the NCAA (college football's governing body), needs to be better staffed or that the players need to be paid.
And finally: LSU and Alabama are going to play each other for the National Championship. While Oklahoma State may not like it, they lost at Iowa State Belt Lv and Alabama only lost to LSU.
For fans across the world, it was a battle of faith. Here are some of things that made us happy and made us sad in America's major sports. Sky Sports' blogger Alex Ferguson has more.
Kraft and Saturday share one of the moments of 2011
