Because no one reads the newspaper, and SportsCenter's anchors are too perky for this early in the morning, Deadspin combs the best of the broadsheets and internets to bring you everything you need to know to start your day.

• How do I justify using a picture of Chris Hanson jackpotting a condom-and-wine-cooler-toting fella who was told she was 18? How about this: Peyton Manning — aka dude on TV during Perv Catching Hour — said QBs aren't whining about roughing penalties. [USA Today] (H/T Mr. Lew)

• Brian Cashman says the Yankees aren't that desperate to get Cliff Lee, which must warm the cockles of Joba's heart. "I think we have a lot of quality players on this team that won 95 games and fell two games short of a World Series," he said. "That's when you have to be willing to roll with the punches and have Plan B's, C's, D's and F's up there." [FoxSportsSouthwest]
