• Apparently, the editors of UK Sun still thinks our country is populated with Valley Girls and stoners. They would not be wrong about that. And Wayne Rooney says England fears no one. Not even baby-mauling foxes? Everyone's afraid of those things. Totally, dude.


• Not even the pounding rain can stop Ubaldo Jimenez from becoming The Greatest Pitcher In The History Of Great Baseball Pitchers This Season. He won his 12th. [SI]

• Jamie Moyer gave up 74 runs in one inning of work as the Boston Red Sox beat the Phillies 456-2.

• Phil Jackson says Lamar Odom has a "mental gap" when he plays against the Celtics and may have to use "electrodes" to stimulate him. Maybe those Ug-ly Sis-ter! clap-clap chants from the Garden have done the job. [LAT]

• Dan Patrick also hates those blasted vuvuzelas. [SIblog]
