Le Tour de France

So... Alberto Contador won the Tour de France. Or at least, we think he did - there's a growing thought now that he might have doped. So that would mean that your Tour winner would be... um...

You know what? I don't even care anymore. Between Landis, Armstrong, Ullrich, Rasmussen, Vinokourov, and a host of other guys who might-or-might-not have been chemically enhanced, I find it hard to muster up any enthusiasm for the Tour. Except, of course, for the wrecks. Those are fun to watch... unless, of course, you're a dog.

So what else is going on? NFL training camps have started; the Bucs cut Simeon Rice because he wouldn't take a $2.5 million drop in pay (can't say that I blame him), and now the Giants are using Rice as leverage to get Michael Strahan to report...

MLB trade deadline was this afternoon. Some big moves, some head-scratchers (why would anybody want Seth McClung? Why?), and the Red Sox got Eric Gagne - yeah, that move makes sense - after all, they desperately needed a potentially dominant but injury-prone closer - because that's the one thing they've been lacking...

Have a good evening, everybody.
