Football soon will not need instant replay to review a drop or catch ball. Footballs will have a chip to determine after the play if it hit the ground or not. There will be no need to take 10 to 15 minutes that can change a game by giving the teams time to regroup. It will also help with the problem with mistake calls even when there evidence to support otherwise.
It's becoming more of a science when it comes to drafting a player. When a player is drafted it becomes a chance to change the face of the franchise. Instead of just watching film now on players, Teams are bringing in players and making them do bunch of activities. They are making them do it with wires on them so they can see every move they do and they determine how good of a player they can become
With basketball players getting bigger, stronger and faster the need for padding is becoming more a reality. Nike has made combat shorts and shirts for basketball. They have padding to resist injury from guys and girls running down full court and running into each other. James is the first person to start wearing it and he just started this year. He said it really helps avoid injuries and has helped play to his fullest potential every night
With 3d movies becoming a big success the past couple of years in movie theaters, TV industry wanted to get in on the action. This summer the world cup will be broadcast in 3d. It will be the first time a major sporting event will be in 3d. The NFL will also be following through with this by adding 3d games also. This is how most sporting events may be broadcast in the future.

This shoe is made by Jordan Brand. Its a shoe set to release in july and is said to be the best outdoor basketball shoe ever to be made. Its made specifically for outdoor basketball and has added grip for clay playgrounds. It also has air holes at the toe for the hot summer days so your feet do not sweat and get all yucky. The shoe is made from a strong leather so it can withstand wear and tear of outdoor conditions. This is the future of basketball shoes.
Ovechkin is one the top players in the nhl today but he is starting to be compared to A Rod because he can't seem to step up in the big game. Last year he is was eliminated by Sid the Kid in seven games and they went on to win the Stanley Cup. But this past season he chocked in the Olympics by not even getting a medal. He then got eliminated in the first round of the playoffs after having the best record in the nhl and only playing good in two games the whole series. I feel like Ovechkin will never win a Stanley Cup because the cast around him will never be as good as other great players in the league. He meant up going down as the best player never to win the Stanley Cup
Wiffle ball the backyard game that everyone knows and loves. Its a small skinny yellow bat and wiffle ball. They also have special bats made for the really serious players. I can see though that wiffle Ball is going to be a future big time sport. There are leagues now that are becoming very competitive with big cash prizes for the winner in the leagues. There is a tournament were you can win 25,000 dollars. The way the ball moves makes it really exciting to watch and even harder to play.
