Andrew Bynum to the Pacers. I don't expect it to happen, but if the Pacers can get even 75% of Bynum's abilities night-in and night-out, that is some scary center depth.

Barca lost at home today, for the first time since April of 2012.

The two Madrid sides can both move past the Catalans tomorrow.

Everyone's favorite player Mr. Derrick Brooks announces that he's made the HOF. Way to blow the news.

The spinning that Baumgartner did at one point in the jump almost made *me* pass out. And the speeds that he achieves, my god, the speeds. I wonder if he really remembers the whole thing or is just one big *whoosh!* to him?

Baumgartner's jump is one of the greatest things I've ever seen. When I was watching it live I couldn't believe him stepping off the platform and plummeting out of sight.

More importantly, Ray Guy finally made it in.

Yes, big cheers for Ray Guy.

And Strahan got in, so Kelly Ripa doesn't have to go shut Sapp's yap for him.

I've watched that part about 10 times since it happened live, and every time I get chills.

Baumgartner's jump and the Mars/Curiosity landing earlier that summer made for some amazing live scientific TV moments.
