Usain Bolt scored two goals in his first professional soccer start: The first goal came from his speed but also featured a nice awareness of positioning, nutmegging the defender and going near post where the goalie was unsighted. Seems like he may have earned a contract!

NHL Third Jerseys for 2018-19: Several teams unveiled new third jerseys for the upcoming NHL season. The Avs tip a cap to the old time Rockies, Flyers go two-tone (no word on the return of the Cooperall pants), the Devils bring back the Green and Red, and at the risk of offering an opinion on a FPP, the 'Canes win.

Frank Reich Hands OT Win to Houston Texans: Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich just made one of the worst NFL coaching blunders since the Miracle at the Meadowlands. Tied in overtime on fourth-and-four at the Colts' 43 with 27 seconds remaining, Reich went for it instead of punting. An incomplete Andrew Luck pass gave the Houston Texans the ball. Deshaun Watson completed a 24-yard pass to DeAndre Hopkins, they spiked the ball and Ka'imi Fairbairn kicked the game winner.

They combined for 1,002 yards and 69 points, with Jared Goff and Kirk Cousins slicing holes through two of the NFL's best defenses and all of the various skill-position plays on each team doing their best to make fantastic plays all over the field.
