â€¢ DEADSPIN tells us about the marriage of the year (if the year was 1982): Chris Evert and Greg Norman.
â€¢ We now know how to tell if she’s got real ones or fake ones. Unfortunately, it involves NFL jerseys. Still, good to know.
â€¢ David Stern shaking hands == Tiger Woods giving high-fives.
â€¢ We’re so glad to hear Enrique Iglesias can find work. Over there. Not here. Singing the Euro 2008 official song. We assume that the Euro 2008 official song is “National Team in a Coma” in honor of England’s inability to attend.
â€¢ When you think NASCAR, you think “biofeedback couch“.
â€¢ Parts one and two of an interview by the RINGS blog of the NEW YORK TIMES with a key member of the World Anti-Doping Agency. Considering how hard we Pound them on a near-daily basis, consider this equal time.

â€¢ Mud wresting + soccer - women = pointless?
