NEWSMAKERS WHO’S MAKING HEADLINES THIS WEEK

Brett Favre

Who else could possibly be No. 1? Favre threw for three touchdowns and got his revenge against the Packers on Monday night.

Miguel Cabrera

Getting into a domestic dispute is always a bad thing — but to have that as you and the Tigers collapse is even worse.

Sam Bradford

In this week’s version of “Injured Heisman Quarterback,” Bradford expects to return Saturday as Oklahoma faces Baylor.

Pele

The Brazilian soccer legend beat President Obama (crushed him, actually) as Rio de Janeiro beat out Chicago to earn the 2016 Olympics.

Ray Lewis

Calling anything NFL officials do “embarrassing to the game” should earn at least a fine, but the linebacker got off without punishment.

TWT FIVE BEST WORLD SERIES MATCHUPS

1. Yankees vs. Dodgers — The history. The tradition. Joe Torre vs. his former team. Manny Ramirez vs. the Yankees. This one has it all.

2. Red Sox vs. Phillies — It would be a matchup of the past two World Series champions — possibly with Brad Lidge sold separately.

3. Yankees vs. Cardinals — This would pit the team with the most titles (26) against the team with the second-most (10).

4. Red Sox vs. Dodgers — Manny being Manny against the Red Sox? That would be a trip.

5. Yankees vs. Phillies — The ultimate I-95 series among playoff teams might feature roughly a zillion home runs.

WEDNESDAY’S BEST BET ON TELEVISION

This time it counts. Well, unlike the All-Star Game, this time it really counts. Start with Rockies/Phillies at 2:30 p.m. and keep going through Cardinals/Dodgers at 9:30. TBS
