The unofficial ending of summer is near, but the sports chatter to close out the month of August will be loud and proud on The Final Word with JayReelz & J.D., Wednesday at 8pm. The Yankees are looking to put some distance in the AL East between the upstart Tampa Bay Rays and the persistent Baltimore Orioles. Will they get back on the winning track and stretch their lead in the division? Or will their division foes creep up to put all of the pressure on the Bombers to succeed. We'll delve into that and have an up to the minute pennant race watch throughout the MLB. The Jets and Giants are preparing for their final preseason games as the season is slowly approaching. We'll deliver all of the latest on Gang Green and Big Blue's progress, plus take a trip throughout the NFL, and divulge the over/under numbers for the 2012 season. The US Open is in full swing at Flushing Meadow. We'll keep you posted on any upsets and recap the first three days of the tournament. Our special guest is former Kentucky All-American and Houston Rockets F Patrick Patterson. We'll catch up on how the offseason has been, his goals for the upcoming season and how Jeremy Lin will fit in with his new team. All of that and then some on BlogTalkRadio's Top Show, The Final Word with JayReelz and J.D.
