Seattle Sounders are the number one team in the western Conference and it looks like they are well on their way to winning a 4th US Open Cup (they've won 7 cups in total)

Mo'Ne Davis makes history as the first Little League player to be on the cover of Sports Illustrated.

Some say that she could be the first woman to play in MLB - putting her on the same pro level with phenoms like Tiger Woods and LeBron James.

Personal opinion, I think the hype of Johnny Football (and perhaps Manziel himself) will be demolished by the Pittsburgh Steelers in his first NFL start.

Mo'ne Davis - another victim of the Sports Illustrated cover jinx....  She pitched 2 1/3 innings and struck out 6 as Pennsylvania lost to Nevada.  Pennsylvania will play in the elimination game on Saturday with a chance to advance to the US championship game to play against ... Nevada.

I'd like to see Troy end Johnny Football's career on a Safety Blitz sack, fumble and return for a TD.  Troy is getting up in years - not sure if he still has the speed to catch up to shifty QBs like Manziel.

Judging from Manziel's play in the preseason, I think Johnny Football's career is more likely to end by riding the bench indefinitely than any monster tackle by Troy.  He has Ryan Leaf written all over him.

Josh Gordon, wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns, will serve a one year suspension for multiple violations of the NFL's substance abuse policy.  He is subject to further league punishment when his drunk driving case is adjudicated.

Meanwhile, Ray Rice, running back for the Baltimore Ravens, will serve a 2 game suspension for dragging his unconscious then-fiancee (now wife) out of an elevator at an Atlantic City casino.

The NFL revised its domestic violence policy increasing suspensions to 6 games for a first offense and a lifetime ban (with application for reinstatement available after 1 year) for a second offense.

Catherine "CiCi" Bellis lost her second round match at the US Open.

Nick Kyrgios advances to the 3rd round of the US Open - hopefully CBS shows that match on Saturday....

Finally, 19 year old Texas A&M quarterback Kenny Hill throws for 511 yards, breaking Johnny Manziel's record, against South Carolina.

He sure comes across a lot classier than Manziel did.

Unfortunately for the other teams in the SEC West, TX A&M looks like they may be even better this year. That's a scary thought.

Yesterday first time in Poland begun Volleyball Men's World Championship. For us it's a great and historic event.
But yesterday's opening match (Poland-Serbia, so my two teams Wink ) was generally historical, as it's the biggest official volleyball match ever, I mean the number of supporters - about 64 000 (the match was played exceptionally at the National Stadium in Warsaw that had been built Football European Championship). My sister was lucky to be present at the stadium, I had to watch it in TV.

And although normally in such cases doesn't matter which team wins, in this case I was supporting Polish players because the championship takes place in their (and our) country. And Poland won, with a great predominance.

Phillies pitchers Cole Hamels, Jake Diekman, Ken Giles and Jonathan Papelbon combined to throw a no-hitter against the Atlanta Braves yesterday. Even though Hamels had a no-no going through six innings, manager Ryne Sandberg chose to remove him for a pinch hitter after his pitch count reached 108. Hamels's stuff was unhittable, but he struggled with his control, walking five and hitting a batter. The next three pitchers each pitched one perfect inning to close out the gem. This marks the third time in Major League history and first time since 1991 that four pitchers combined to throw a no-hitter.

Phillies pitchers Cole Hamels, Jake Diekman, Ken Giles and Jonathan Papelbon combined to throw a no-hitter against the Atlanta Braves yesterday. Even though Hamels had a no-no going through six innings, manager Ryne Sandberg chose to remove him for a pinch hitter after his pitch count reached 108. Hamels's stuff was unhittable, but he struggled with his control, walking five and hitting a batter. The next three pitchers each pitched one perfect inning to close out the gem. This marks the third time in Major League history and first time since 1991 that four pitchers combined to throw a no-hitter.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said the recent reports from Sports Business News which claimed the NHL would expand by four teams are false.

Yes, yes, youth is wasted on the young. And so is accumulated experience wasted on the old, the positives of modernism wasted on moderns, the beauty of Christianity wasted on Christians, the utility of scholarship wasted on scholars, and on and on.

The data they used was based on the preferences of US facebook users, is why the 13 Seahawks fans in Canada weren't counted  Grin
