It seems as though someone should post a link regarding Lance Armstrong's fifth straight Tour de France win. I guess that someone is me.

For "Discussion" purposes: Does anyone think he'll take it next year?

Can the Lakers make a comeback next year? If the rumors are true, it is a possibility. They're currently looking at Gary Payton. Additionally, Karl Malone has expressed interest if Payton joins the crew. The scenario would go like this: Malone signs for the veteran minimum of $1.5 million for next season, which would help the Lakers attract Payton. If all this plays out, you're looking at a possible starting line-up of Gary Payton, Kobe Bryant, Rick Fox, Karl Malone and Shaquille O'Neal, which would be pretty strong, to say the least.

"For an unprecedented third straight year, rail-thin Takeru 'Tsunami' Kobayashi out-gorged the competition Friday in the Nathan's Famous hot dog eating contest, downing 44 1/2 dogs and dominating adversaries three times his size. Celebrity contestant William 'The Refrigerator' Perry was outclassed by the assembled chowhounds. The 410-pound (184-kilogram) former NFL star dropped out of the competition after just five minutes, with only four hot dogs finished."

To possibly nobody's suprise, the Williams sisters will be facing eachother in the Wimbledon final this Saturday. In a rematch of their French Open final, Serena Williams defeated Justine Henin-Hardenne in two sets (6-3, 6-2). Venus Williams overcame a slow start to eliminate Belgium's Kim Clijsters in three sets, creating an all-Williams final for the second successive year.

And then there were four.

Kidd's going to San Antonio, no question. I don't know about that.

I'm looking forward to it. Does anyone have an opinion on what the outcome will be?

More lifting competitions should involve winning the respective weight in beer.
