Toronto FC did plenty to create chances in New York last night, but couldn't find the onion bag and were 1-0 losers. Solid efforts in particular from Dwayne DeRosario and Nick Garcia (no, really). Not a good result for TFC who now trail New York by five points for second place in the East, which also guarantees an automatic playoff birth. Up next is a date with Mexican powerhouse Cruz Azul in Champions League play on Tuesday at BMO Field which will make it 12 games in 57 days. Ouch.

Very classy of New York Mets reliever Francisco Rodriguez to beat up his father-in-law in the Mets clubhouse after a Mets loss last night. He was arrested. Is there a guy who leaves the LA Angels and performed that does anything great after?  See K-Rod, Chone Figgins.

100 pictures of the smokin' hot Abbey Clancy. Just because.

In June, word is both Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade hired the same production company to film their visits - which now appear more charade than ever - to other teams during their free agency.  Sheer coincidence, I'm sure.  In other news, Bosh says that LeBron James is using the criticism of his act this summer to fuel his fire.  Nice to see a guy making the money he does needs fuel for the fire.  Guess wanting to win wasn't enough.

It didn't take Cristiano Ronaldo long to jump into the familiar #7 jersey that was long occupied by Raul at Real Madrid.  With Raul gone, CR7 is back.

Four "hidden" pages at Manchester United's website have player profiles for Mesut Ozil, Wesley Sneijder, Sami Khedira and Mario Ballotelli.  Those are links to all of them.  Obviously, that isn't all happening.

New York Mets starter Johan Santana is being sued for raping a woman.  Now, that said, there wasn't enough evidence to press criminal charges so take that with a heavy dose of Salt Peter.  The lady needs some legal advise if she's suing for damages over a rape and only looking for $15,000.  Tough times in Metsland.

Brandon Morrow's story of living with diabetes is getting some run after his great start Sunday.  Wasn't aware he was diabetic, but does explain his less than pleased appearance after getting pied twice.

A great piece from Fox Sports on how the EPL's "big four" are going to face a monster challenge this year.  Have I mentioned I'm jacked for the season?

Kansas City Chiefs wideout Chris Chambers got married in July.  Big deal, right?  Well, it is if you consider that the woman he married was once charged with stalking him and members of his family just this past December.  Weird.

Okay, we've done football, basketball, hockey, baseball, and soccer.  I'll leave next on the target list to the first one to respond in the comments section.  So if you want to crack at a given sport, first one to start on something gets the topic of the day.

DeRo made a potentially interesting (or potentially not) comment in the post-game interview. Something about some of the guys being gassed the last five to 10 minutes. And that it's important they maintain themselves as pros both on and off the field.

They seemed to have lost some of their vigour up front last night when CB19 went down.

HaHa. Something happened in NYC involving a few players, nightclub staff and a few girls sources tell me. I guess that's what DeRo is talking about when he mentions them as "pros"
