:10—The Women’s USA Soccer team put the force of a nation on the Japanese team with an impressive 5-2 route in the World Cup. Paying the Japanese back for the loss they suffered in 2011. That makes me right again. (Oh shut up!)
:09—Do you and your son a big favor and Google Cliff Alexander and find out what happens when you’re a top five college recruit and you don’t get drafted as planned. Shocking story. Real eye-opener. Can’t do it here, but worth your time I promise. (See Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Sunday, July 5.)
:08—No Pirates to start in the upcoming All-Star game. Say what?!?! More later.
:07—LaMarcus Aldridge told “Kobe” and the Lakers to take a hike on the ole L.A. Freeway and joined Tim Duncan and the Spurs. Can you say Six Rings for Tim Duncan? Not so quick there’s the Cleveland Cavs!
:06—Speaking of the Lakers, and I just was, if I can just get you people to pay attention…They, not we, but they managed to sign Roy Hibbert away from Indiana. He’s no Aldridge, but he’ll have to do. (Yeah, I’m still on the Lakers bus, but I am sitting way in the back. I just don’t know what to do. I’m lost I tell ya. I’m lost. Help me Lakers gods. Help me!)
