Alright, some required reading and/or video-watching.
First, you have to check out the video of the men’s 4×100 relay at www.nbcolympics.com. (You’ll have to go to the bottom of the page in the NBC encores and scroll to the right, the direct link to the video takes too long to load). Absolutely breathtaking final, best moment in the Olympics so far.
An American obsession returns. Madden’s coming back!
Jim Salisbury gives a good wrap-up of the Phillies-Pirates series, plus some potentially frightening news about the back of the bullpen.
Pretty good recap of the Eagles first preseason game against the Steelers over at The 700 Level.
Mike Vick might be playing in 2009…just not where you think. Peter King breaks that down and more in his MMQB.
Sports on the tube: you’ve got the Olympics all day, and then the Phillies start a roadtrip tonight against the Dodgers at 10:10 PM. Oh, and Cincinnati vs. Green Bay in preaseason football on ESPN at 8 PM.
