Player Completes Perfect Set at Wimbledon: Yaroslava Shvedova played a flawless set of tennis, the best by a woman in at least 44 years, in the third round at Wimbledon. She won every point (24) and every game (6) in the first set against Sara Errani, winning 6-0, 6-4. The last pro to do it was Bill Scanlon in a first-round match in 1983. "To me, that's almost as incredible as Isner-Mahut," said Sam Querrey, one of the men's competitors.

NASCAR's Kurt Busch Testifies Ex-Girlfriend is an Assassin

In the front of my mind, I hope she gets away from this guy safely because the statistics for women seeking protection are pretty depressing in that regard.

Football question - does a touchdown scored on a 3rd down count as a 3rd down conversion? (got curious after watching the Pats highlights where they mentioned just how bad they are this year on 3rd down conversions)

Don Zimmer was truly a baseball man

Don Zimmer was the manager of the Red Sox when I started watching baseball and going to games with my dad. I was surprised to see that he only managed the Sox for 4 years (though that was his longest run as a manager). In my mind, he was the only Sox manager during my youth (5th most games managed by a Red Sox manager).

Also, after looking at the list of Sox managers, Francona is the only guy who comes close to Joe Cronin (reaching back to the 30s and 40s) and he's not even that close.
