We're mere days away from Game 1 of the World Series after several dramatic rounds of postseason play.

As of Friday, the American League champion has yet to be decided. 

The NBA season got off to a somber start as new Boston Celtics forward Gordon Hayward suffered a devastating ankle injury that will likely keep him off the court for the rest of the season

In football, another wild week reminded us once again that anything can happen -- including the strange sight of a potential game-altering touchdown being overturned and becoming a fumble instead
