Well, the 2012 London Olympic Games are in the books. Congratulations to all the medal winners. Condolences to all the heartbroken athletes. We now return to your regularly scheduled programming.
Apparently there was some kind of major golf tournament going on over the weekend, something known as the PGA Championship? I think some Irish guy won it. Fitting, Great Britain has had a pretty good couple of weeks.
Rumor has it that the NFL has cranked back up with meaningless exhibition games at full price. Somebody got kicked off a team for domestic violence.
The college football season will begin in less than three weeks and an All-American was dismissed from his team. Some polls were put out before any games were played. There is now a pirate bobblehead.
Some trades were made in MLB. Some teams got better, some got worse. Pennant races and wild card races are heating up.
Some tennis was played somewhere in Canada. Not a great field because of the Olympics, although some Olympians made the quick turnaround.
The spectacle, the drama, the heartbreak, the inspiration, the elation, the dejection: to interrupt the dog days of summer every four years, the Olympics are worth it.
Our next interruption in programming will occur in 2014 for the Winter Games in Sochi. Until then we'll focus on the above stories and stories to come from the above sports. And anything else that tickles our fancy.
