1. All The Samberg That's Fit To Print
With the U.S. Open right around the corner, the New York Times Magazine has published a lengthy piece about tennis rivalries. The piece also includes iconic photos of some of tennis' greatest players -- or does it? Turns out that is not John McEnroe or Bjorn Borg in those photos: It's comedian Andy Samberg, very accurately depicting some of the sport's best rivalries. I think Samberg can do a better Andre Agassi than Andre Agassi.
2. Supporting Nationals Not Allowed At Nationals Park
A fan at a Nationals game caught a home run by the opposing team, and proceeded to throw it back, drawing cheers from other Nats fans. Turns out you can't do that. The Nationals have a rule against throwing the ball back after a home run, prompting ushers to remove the fan from his seat. Nationals Park ain't exactly Wrigley quite yet.
3. Is There An App For That?
Apparently the Tampa Bay Buccaneers aren't worried about the retirement of former Apple boss and brains Steve Jobs. The Bucs have done away with their paper playbooks, and will instead use iPads to learn plays and watch film. No word on whether coach Raheem Morris will be using FaceTime to communicate with his coordinators during games.
4. Haley Sees Weezy
Can you imagine an NFL head coach at a Lil Wayne concert? Todd Haley of the Chiefs made that vision a reality when he attended Weezy's show this past Monday night. Since Lil Wayne is a Packers fan, can we get Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy to attend a show?
5. Revenge On Their Minds
The college football world turned upside-down on Sept. 1, 2007, when Appalachian State came into Michigan Stadium and defeated the fifth-ranked Wolverines. Now apparently Michigan wants some more. The Mountaineers will once again head to the Big House for the season opener in 2014 to take on Michigan. If we really want to go full circle, let's hope Appalachian State's head coach in 2014 will be Rich Rodriguez.
