10.  I spent Sunday night watching Dragon Gate USA tear up the Congress Theater.  You won’t find much better wrestling out there than DGUSA, even if you did have to pay ball park prices for beer!   

9.  So if this is going on, why isn't pro wrestling in the Olympics?   It’s all rigged!  My only question for Olympic pro wrestling would be who the masked guys from Parts Unknown will represent.

8.  Training camp has started for the NFL, and not a minute too soon.  If these guys were out of camp for another week, half the league would be in the police blotter.

7.  The new Dream Team wins, but not by enough to impress America.  If we don’t see our boys crushing the world by at least 50 points, it might as well be a loss.  Thank god we’ve all forgotten those teams that didn’t even medal a few years back.

6.  Ryan Lochte beat Michael Phelps.  I see this one shaping up for a Rocky III ending, and we all know how that ends.  It’s just sad that Mickey has to die again.

5.  I’m all for women being empowered.  Be proud, ladies!  

4.  Fantasy football is coming up soon.  Is it just me, or did this jump the shark about five years ago?  I just hope I can get Eddie George in my draft.

3.  Zach Greinke heads to the Angels to heat the AL West race up further.  With Josh Hamilton’s issues, this may be the most interesting race in baseball down the stretch.  Sorry Yankees! 

2.  Red Sox take 2 out of 3 from the Yankees to hit .500 and still sit in the cellar.  The Orioles and Blue Jays must wish that they were in the AL Central every day they look at the standings.

1.  Will the Reds ever lose again?   With the way they're playing, I’m starting to have my doubts.  Maybe Dusty Baker finally figured out how to manage a team that doesn’t choke.  Of course, he may just let them choke on a bigger stage this fall.
