On Friday, October 10, soccer superstar Landon Donovan will lace up his cleats one final time. This is your last chance to see one of America’s most legendary soccer players do what he does best!

Fans were heartbroken to learn that Donovan would not be joining Team U.S.A. in Brazil to duke it out in the 2014 World Cup, but this game should serve as consolation! Donovan himself stated, ”You don’t want your last memory to be getting cut from the team, and my family didn’t either, so this will be a nice way to hopefully put a ribbon on my career. And I’m excited to have a chance to say goodbye to a lot of people who have been supportive of me.”

Soccer supporters are eager to see Donovan end his career on a high note, but they are also excited for the future, for Team U.S.A. consists of young talent. The team’s coach, Jurgen Klinsmann, explained, “It’s about building a new hierarchy of the senior national team because after every World Cup, it’s time to start fresh again.”

Friday’s exhibition match will be against Ecuador at 7 p.m. in Hartford Connecticut at Rentschler Field. Before we start fresh, let’s say goodbye to Landon Donovan!

Each December, the best bull riders and cowboys gather at the National Finals Rodeo, which showcases the best and top-winning competitors in a series of events ranging from bull riding to bareback riding and beyond. This year’s NFR will be held in Las Vegas for the 30th year.

Competitive events for the 2014 National Finals Rodeo include saddle bronc riding, team roping, calf roping, steer wrestling, barrel racing and more, and each of the recognized rodeo events allows the top 15 competitors in the country to compete for the gold — or in rodeo terms, the Gold Buckle.

The Thomas & Mack Center can seat more than 18,000 fans for the NFR, and is often filled to capacity every night during the early December run of the Rodeo.

Over the summer, Rutgers University became an official member of the Big Ten Conference, increasing the Big Ten’s membership to 14 institutions.

Currently, Rutgers is off to an impressive 4-1 start, and will face the 2-3 Michigan Wolverines next. Many expected Rutgers to be among the worst Big Ten teams in its first season in the conference, but the team has surpassed expectations with its surprising record.

It’s exciting, Rutgers coach Kyle Flood said after a 31-6 win over Tulane University. “Playing Division I football games is exciting. Being under the lights is exciting. Having a great opponent is exciting.”

The Scarlett Knights are aiming for their first Big Ten win after falling 13-10 earlier this month to Penn State during the conference opener. That wasn’t the best start for Rutgers, especially for quarterback Gary Nova who threw five interceptions. But he seems to be bouncing back from that. Nova redeemed himself in Saturday’s win over Tulane by throwing 291 yards and four touchdowns. Nova also set Rutgers’ career record for touchdown passes with 60 by connecting a 93-yard pass with Andrew Turzilli.

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights will play the Michigan Wolverines at High Point Solutions Stadium in Piscataway, New Jersey on Saturday, Oct. 4, and kickoff is at 7 p.m. The next home game will be on Saturday, Nov. 1 against the Wisconsin Badgers.

Both teams will be making their second appearance in the Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic®, and the Caps will  be making their hosting debut. In 2011, the Capitals defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-1 in front of a crowd of 68,111 people at Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field. The Blackhawks hosted the Detroit Red Wings at historic Wrigley Field in 2008, with Detroit winning 6-4.

“We are thrilled the 2015 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic® will be played at Nationals Park as we welcome the Chicago Blackhawks and their fans to our nation’s capital,” said Capitals Majority Owner Ted Leonsis.

Located in Southeast Washington, south of the Capitol and adjacent to the Navy Yard, Nationals Park is home to MLB’s Washington Nationals. The 41,546-seat venue is complete with panoramic views of the riverfront, Navy Yard, the surrounding city and landmarks such as the Capitol and the Washington Monument.

As the Gillette Brasil Global Tour resumes after the 2014 World Cup, the Brazilian national team will play Ecuador at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on Tuesday, Sept. 9 at 8:30 p.m.

Brazil, the only team to win the FIFA World Cup five times, managed to finish fourth as the host country in this year’s world cup. The Brazilians fell 7-1 to Germany in the semifinal before bowing out in the third-place game with a 3-0 loss to The Netherlands. The team’s manager, Luis Felipe Sclori, resigned, and it was evident that was not the only change needed.

After Sclori resigned, 1994 World Cup winner Dunga took over as Brazil’s manager for the second time in his career — the first was from late 2006-2010. On Tuesday, Dunga named the 22-man squad who will take on Ecuador in New Jersey on Sept. 9, and only 10 players from the 23 that played on behalf of Brazil in this summer’s World Cup remain.

Baseball season is winding down, which means there are only a few home games left to see New York Yankees’ captain Derek Jeter in the pinstripes.

The Yankees recently announced a special pregame ceremony to honor his career on Sunday, Sept. 7. All fans in attendance for the Yankees’ game vs. Kansas City will receive a limited-edition commemorative coin that will recognize the occasion. Tickets for this game area available here

In his final season, Jeter continues to reach new milestones. Earlier this month, Jeter moved past Honus Wagner to take over the sixth spot on baseball’s all-time hits list with a sixth-inning single in front of a sold out crowd of 47,376 at Yankee Stadium. This was Jeter’s 3,431st hit of his career, and with that, he now has more hits than any other shortstop in history.

“Honus Wagner, he is the last one on the list who has played shortstop,” Jeter said. “That one hits home a little bit. Anytime you pass guys that have had the careers that they’ve had, it is kind of overwhelming.”

The Yankees will be back in the Bronx on Tuesday, Aug. 19 to face the Houston Astros.

Walking with Dinosaurs the Arena Spectacular is roaring at Newark’s Prudential Center through July 27, 2014.

The show depicts the dinosaurs’ evolution with almost cinematic realism. Walking with Dinosaurs has scenes of the interactions between dinosaurs, how carnivorous dinosaurs evolved to walk on two legs and how the herbivores fended off their more agile predators.

Ten species are represented from the entire 200 million year reign of the dinosaurs.  The show includes the Tyrannosaurus Rex, the terror of the ancient terrain, as well as the Plateosaurus and Liliensternus from the Triassic period, the Stegosaurus and Allosaurus from the Jurassic period and Torosaurus and Utahraptor from the Cretaceous period.  The largest of them, the Brachiosaurus is 36 feet tall, and 56 feet from nose to tail.  It took a team of 50 – including engineers, fabricators, skin makers, artists and painters and animatronic experts – a year to build the production.

The history of the world is played out with the splitting of the earth’s continents, and the transition from the arid desert of the Triassic period is given over to the lush green prairies and forces of the later Jurassic.  Oceans form, volcanoes erupt, a forest catches fire — all leading to the impact of the massive comet, which struck the earth, and forced the extinction of the dinosaurs.
