It is that time of week we honor not only some of the great plays but unique events that we've seen in the last few days. We call it the Sunday Six and as always, News 5's Colin Murphy takes us in.
We start with a young soccer hopeful in the Netherlands. He is three years old and after seeing him kick these soccer balls into this box, a European team actually signed him to a professional contract! It's not exactly sure if he knows how to write his name yet, though.
We go to Minneapolis, where we see snowflakes during this week's game between the Twins and Tampa Bay Rays. For over 30 years the Twins didn't have to worry about this since they played inside in the Metrodome. There were able to play through it, and it felt like Christmas time so Santa was there.
To South Florida and no snow whatsoever. This is the Florida Marlins and Colorado Rockies with none other than actor Charlie Sheen on hand! Charlie has been saying some outrageous things lately, but did a great job as the "Wild Thing" being a relief pitcher in the movie Major League.
Another great moment came yesterday and we have to recognize the unbridled enthusiasm of the Hastings Bronco baseball team and their dramatic twinbill sweep of the Doane Tigers to win the GPAC, and the post season is in their future.
To Fonner Park and the Gus Fonner Bosselman Stakes.
What a job by jockey Jordan Olesiak aboard long shot Andiotis to come from last to first and win by five lengths to claim the 45,000 dollar first prize.
Finally, Husker 3rd baseman Cody Asche saved the weekend for the Big Red. His 2 homers and double in yesterday's win over Baylor provided just about all of the offense in a 6-2 win-of course the Huskers were shut out Sunday at Haymarket.
