Even With Confession of Cheating, World’s Doping Watchdog Did Nothing: "WADA, the global regulator of doping in Olympic sports, did not begin an inquiry, even though a staff lawyer circulated the message to three top officials, calling the accusations “relatively precise,” including names and facts. Instead, the agency did something that seemed antithetical to its mission to protect clean athletes. It sent Ms. Pishchalnikova’s email to Russian sports officials — the very people who she said were running the doping program."

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.

Claude Julien...winningest coach in Bruins history

If I were grum, I'd pull all kinds of fancy stats together comparing Julien to other great B's coaches. Using your imaginations, picture all of those stats complete with pretty diagrams and twenty-seven 8 x 10 colored glossy photographs with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explainin' what each one was.

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)
