If you ain't for the Dutch, you ain't much...
So this baseball All-Star Game that "counts" is allowing players to re-enter the game after they leave? The joke gets bigger.
Ilya Kovalchuk is going to stay with the New Jersey Devils after all in what has to be termed a surprised. He scored a seven-year deal worth an un-Devil-like $60 million.
The Toronto Raptors are said to have received six sign-and-trade proposals for Chris Bosh, with offers from Miami and Chicago the most palatable of the group.
Finally a big name in the NBA moved in free agency, with Amare Stoudamire jumping to the New York Knicks. He knows that Steve Nash just lives in New York and doesn't play there, right? LeBron James is expected to make his announcement tomorrow. Would it surprise anybody that with that bit of information out if the OHB tries to scoop the spotlight and announces his "comeback" too?
If you've ever wondered how Mariano Rivera has gotten by for so long throwing almost exclusively one pitch, wonder no more with the aid of this insane breakdown via video. Must-see stuff if you're a baseball fan.
Rolling Stone Mick Jagger has been glossed the World Cup Angel of Death by some, and not just because he resembles the dead.
Phil Jackson's return to coach the LA Lakers means he's got a chance at a fourth three-peat in his career. Crazy.
Where else but Columbia would one find a replica of the World Cup trophy, made entirely out of cocaine with a crude paint job over top? The "trophy" was en route to Spain.
Strange as it may sound, Toronto FC are less than two weeks away from being unbeaten at home in a calendar year.
