SPORTS: Warriors move to 20-0; New York Rangers sign little 7 year old girl

The defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors moved to a record shattering 20-0 to start the season and the New York Rangers sign a little girl who recently had liver transplant surgery but really just wanted a chance to play with her hockey heroes.

The Golden State Warriors continue their unprecedented march into NBA history as the moved their record to 20-0 by defeating the Charlotte Hornets, 116-99. This has established a new NBA record for the best undefeated start to a season in the league’s history.

The defending NBA champions looked every inch the champions as reigning league MVP Stephen Curry tossed in 40 points which included 8 three point shots. The champions made it look easy as their effortless and choreographed play thus far this season has given them the appearance of being, perhaps, one of the best NBA teams of all time, according to The San Francisco Examiner.

In the third quarter, the amazing Curry, considered to be the best player in the league, accounted for the last 24 points his team scored in that quarter. It was such an easy and graceful win that the coach sat Curry for the whole fourth quarter. Curry was amazed at the teams start saying that in a league with so many great teams and players it just seems unlikely that the Warriors have been off to such a perfect start. They look to keep the streak going on Saturday when they play the Raptors in Toronto.


Little 7 year old Kayleigh Petersen got to experience the dream of a lifetime when the NHL’s New York Rangers signed her to a one day contract. Kayleigh had a liver transplant back in 2009 because she had an affliction called Tyrosinemia Type 1 which caused her to go into liver and kidney failure.

Soon after the liver transplant, Kayleigh began dancing and took up the sport of hockey. She loves wearing pink and is a star in her local Mites Hockey League. She was granted a wish by the Make-a-Wish Foundation of being able to play with her hockey heroes, the New York Rangers, according to USA Today.

It was arranged by the Rangers in conjunction with Madison Square Garden. The Rangers signed her to an official one day contract to be an official member of the team. According to her contract, she was allowed to take a lap around the rink prior to the start of a Rangers game against Colorado. In addition, she got to sit on the bench and was allowed to stand with the team on the ice during the playing of the national anthem.
