- The humminest sumbitch who ever batted out a sports column, Dan Jenkins, might start blogging with his daughter Sally Jenkins of the Washington Post. Your Internet connection might not be to handle that much awesomeness.
- Curtis Granderson hit two triples in that Tigers-Yankees marathon that didn't end until 3:30 a.m. (due to a rain delay and extra innings plus the Yankees' dragging ass in the name of "gamesmanship"). That made him the first American League player since 1949 to have 20 three-baggers in a season while playing his home games on a grass surface.
Granderson also needs four homers for the rare 20-20-20 season (doubles, triples and homers). George Brett was the last to do it with the 1979 Royals.
- The big game in the Premiership today is the early-season surprise Manchester City vs. Arsenal. If City wins, Liam and Noel Gallagher from Oasis will get drunk and fight each other for the 1,000th time.
(Here's an article Noel wrote in 2000 about being a long-suffering City fan.)
- FIBA Americas: Canada 93, U.S. Virgin Islands 83. Shouldn't Tim Duncan have been playing for V.I.? It was a nice enough win, but now it's Canada vs. the U.S. today. It's a good day to go fishing.
- CFL: Blue Bombers 15, Argonauts 13. The only way Toronto gets in the end zone these days is when defensive guys come over and join the offence.
- Compare this Hockey Hearsay post from yesterday with an article by Philadelphia Inquirer hockey writer Tim Panaccio. It's just brutal this goes on.
Lastly, it's true the Yankees take a lot of pitches and draw out games, but still playing at 2:45 a.m.? That's an all-timer.
