Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay Packers are Super Bowl boundThe Green Bay Packers went into Soldier Field to play the Chicago Bears and came out the victors in one of sports' greatest rivalries. It was the 182nd meeting between the two NFC North teams and it was a match-up as good as it was going to get - a game that determined who would go to the Super Bowl. In the end, it was the Packers with a 21-14 win, led by Aaron Rodgers and the much ballyhooed Packers defense led by Clay Matthews and a B.J. Raji interception run back for a touchdown. The Packers will meet the Pittsburgh Steelers for the right to be called Super Bowl champions.

Cam Newton helps the Auburn Tigers defeat the Oregon DucksThe Auburn Tigers defeated the Oregon Ducks 22-19 to claim college football's championship at the Tostitos BCS National Championship Game. Heisman Trophy winner, Cam Newton, while performing well (20-for-34, 265 yards, two touchdowns, one interception), was upstaged by kicker Wes Byrum and freshman running back Michael Dyer. A pair of Dyer runs set-up Byrum to hit a game-winning field goal as time ran out on the clock. The Tigers finish 14-0 for the season and win their first national championship since 1957.

Bengie MolinaBengie Molina couldn’t lose in this World Series. Sure, his Texas Rangers did roll over to allow the San Francisco Giants to win their first World Series since moving out of the Polo Grounds, but Molina’s allegiance to both teams during this season gave him the right to wear a World Series ring regardless of how the series played out. Molina started the season with the Giants, but was sent to the Rangers to make room for Buster Posey behind the plate.

Matt CainSomebody should tell C.J. Wilson and Matt Cain that they’re not aces in this World Series. At least not yet. After both Cliff Lee and Tim Lincecum failed to deliver the goods in Game 1, Wilson and Cain combined to throw 13 2/3 innings with seven hits and two earned runs. Both Lee and Lincecum each allowed more hits and earned runs. The 9-0 final score in Game 2 is no indication of how the starting pitching fared; at least not in Wilson’s case.

Vladimir GuerreroFans of the Giants were probably the only ones who got anything good out of Game 1 of Wednesday’s World Series debut. That good came in the form of a win and the presence of Vladimir Guerrero. Questions regarding Guerrero’s presence in Ron Washington’s lineup were answered when Vlady showed up in right field for just the 18th time this season, and it cost his team dearly. Vlady made more mistakes than his personal score sheet will indicate, and his team lost the game.

Josh HamiltonA month ago, Josh Hamilton was just returning from a rib cage injury that had sidelined him for the better part of September. That injury seems like ancient history to the Texas outfielder. Now, he’s expected to carry a Rangers offense through a powerful Giants pitching rotation that includes two-time National League Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum and fellow starter Matt Cain, while the bullpen crowd features Sergio Romo and Grizzly Adams-wannabe Brian Wilson.

San Francisco GiantsTalk about Giant killers. The San Francisco Giants made just about every unconventional move you could think of, and it seemed like each decision paid off. They’ll be heading to their first World Series since 1954 to face the Rangers who will be going to their first World Series ever, and without any official announcements, it’s probably safe to assume that two of the game’s best pitchers, Cliff Lee and Tim Lincecum, will be throwing first pitches for their respective teams.

New York YankeesMaybe everything would have been different if even one umpire ever noticed that Nick Swisher was hit by a pitch. Twice in the ALCS Swisher was hit without a call, resulting in Yankee baserunners advancing and scoring and, at least in Friday night’s game, it couldn’t be more obvious that Swisher took one for the team. If an umpire sends Swisher to first and keeps the runners where they are, maybe we have a whole different space-time continuum and we’re still watching Game 6 right now.

Jonathan ToewsThe season has yet to begin, but it already looks like the Chicago Blackhawks are mailing it in. Okay, maybe that is a little harsh, but since winning their first Stanley Cup since 1961 last month, the team has shipped a lot of key players out the door in order to make room under the salary cap. More than a half-dozen who drank from Lord Stanley’s mug have moved out of Chicago - willingly or unwillingly - and won’t be back for the 2010-11 season.

Alex RiosThe city of Chicago has a long sports tradition. When the Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup last week and ended the NHL’s longest championship drought, a new chapter began in the history book of the Windy City. That story continued on Sunday night as the champs brought Lord Stanley’s prized hardware into Wrigley Field to show off to the fans - and perhaps inspire either of Chicago’s two baseball teams to follow in their footsteps.
