The Florida Marlins are above .500, truly remarkable considering their payroll is less than 6 Yankee players' salaries. They are only 2 games out of the Wild Card. Rumor has it that Manager of the Year candidate Joe Girardi will likely be fired after the season and take the Cubs job. I think he called the team owner a cheap bastard or something.
Team USA finished third in the World Championships, demolishing my credibility as a Sports Blogger.
College Football started this past week. FSU-Miami and Rutgers-UNC were the games that I actually watched. Rutgers could be the dark horse in the Big East with Louisville's Bush going down (did that sound weird?).
Agassi's run at the US Open ended, but the A-Rod of tennis is still alive. Roddick keeps winning under the tutelage of Jimmy Connors.
The Crocodile Hunter was killed by a sting ray this weekend. He did a commercial for ESPN so this is sports related. He gave us a lot of good TV over the years, its a shame to see him go.
