Welcome to Tuesday, which is German for whale's vagina - if you take issue with that, we'll have to agree to disagree, now let's get to some links.
The Giants are trying to lure Michael Strahan out of retirement - if you happened to listen to Mike and Mike this morning you would have heard this a million times - that and an hour of discussion over whether a 9 year old should be allowed to pitch in little league baseball. It wasn't one of Fozzy Bear's best performances. Jesus I hate it when Stern in on vacation.
Shawne Merriman is trying to find ANY doctor who will let him play this year. I love ripping this guy, but I'll give him credit for wanting to get on the field.
Our daily collection of Greg Robinson on the hot seat links begins with the Axeman.
Greg Robinson like the unknown of the opener, probably because the only thing he has known is his team getting their asses kicked. More discussion on the depth chart and the running back battle is available here.
Who needs running backs anyway - the Sport Hump says start the game without one. Of course, this would most likely catch their opponent off guard so Robinson has probably already dismissed the idea.
Here's a great story from the Seattle Times - among the gems in there, a safety was busted for stealing condoms and Greg Robinson has two more Big East wins than you do.
A Syracuse football preview, Weezer style. Personally Weezer has always a band I've liked, but never enough to really get into their music. The preview is pretty good however, check it out.
Rutgers opens with a ranked opponent on Monday.
Remember Drew Henson? Not many people do.
In SU basketball news, the Orange exhibition games have been announced - and Stevie Thompson is coming back to the Dome.
The Daily Orange says off-field incidents have tainted SU's image.
Who got injured this weekend in the NFL and how that affects fantasy football is available here.
In baseball news, the Yankees-Red Sox and Phillies-Mets series both begin tonight, it should make for a few interesting days of baseball.
Via the Big Lead, the entire TV schedule for college football.
Here's an Olympian who did not get her fair share of coverage. The high jump just became AWESOME.
And we'll leave you with this - did you know Strange Brew turns 25 today? If you hosers don't know what I'm talking about, well I'm sorry. Here's a clip.
