Take a look back at the weekend in sports with analysis from SiriusXM’s sports team and interviews with national sports stars.
Landon Donovan scored a goal and totaled three assists in the U.S. Men’s National Team’s 5-1 win over El Salvador on Sunday in the Gold Cup. ESPN’s Jeff Carlisle said he’d be surprised if Donovan was left off the country’s “A” team following the performance on SiriusXM FC.
Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly spoke with Christopher “Mad Dog” Russo on Mad Dog Radio about his team’s success over the past month. Mattingly, whose job was rumored to be on the line prior to Yasiel Puig’s arrival in the majors, told Russo that it “wasn’t much fun” being on the hot seat.
Hall of Fame quarterback Fran Tarkenton said that he is “very troubled” by Johnny Manziel. Tarkenton added that the Texas A&M quarterback “is a young man of enormous talents, enormous gifts . . . but the character issues are troubling.”
At ACC Media Day, senior quarterback Tajh Boyd spoke about coming back for one final season with Clemson, and opening the 2013 season against Georgia after closing last season against LSU. Boyd spoke with College Sports Nation’s Mark Packer.
