sports weekend


Not for 65 Million Dollars – At least according to Bob Arum who said that “legitimate” (versus, what exactly?) people from Singapore offered Floyd Mayweather $65 million to fight Manny, and were turned down.

Who knows if this is true or not.  Likely a bunch of peacocking and posturing.  In any event, Manny is making ends meet by hawking HP stuff now.

Congratulations Li Na for becoming the first Chinese player to win a Major in tennis, and doing it with a straight set win over French Open defending champ Francesca Schiavone.

Coach… I really want to root for you.  Seriously.  But it’s just really really really hard for me to root for your employer.
