10.  If you’re looking for a little late summer gambling reading, check out this book about Titanic Thompson.  This guy crammed in enough for a couple of lives.  Very colorful stuff.

9.  Well Andrew Luck, you’ve got nowhere to go but down now

8.  After months of whining and complaining, Dwight Howard finally gets traded.  It’s just a matter of days before he starts complaining again and looking for his next trade.

6.  Remind me to never pass out a Phillie’s game.

1.  The Olympics are now over, so we can wait another four years to care about all these sports again.  See you in Rio, synchronized diving!
