An extremely sobering story that really makes you thankful for the things in your life this early Sunday morning.
Former WBC super welterweight champion Vernon Forrest was shot and killed in Atlanta late Saturday night.
It was just reported on Sportscenter moments ago that Forrest was parked at a gas station putting air in one of the tires in his Jaguar when two men pulled up and attempted to steal his car.
The ESPN story is here.

When it rains, it pours.
The New York Mets, a season high 10 games behind the National League East leading Phillies, have suffered injuries to three of their top four hitters (Carlos Delgado, Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran) and their #2 and #3 starting pitchers (John Maine, Oliver Perez.)
The major league lineup is punchless. They just got shut out by the Washington Nationals John Lannon last night.
But one executive was literally trying to throw punches at the clubs AA team in Binghamton.
According to the New York Daily News…
WASHINGTON – The Binghamton Mets clubhouse nearly turned into a scene out of WWE Raw recently, when VP for player development Tony Bernazard removed his shirt and challenged the Double-A players to a fight during a postgame tirade, multiple sources told the Daily News.
Can it get any more embarrassing for the club? It’s going to be a LONG 2+ months for everyone in the entire organization.

A strong effort in the 4th stage pushed Armstrong into a virtual tie for the lead today in the Tour de France. Switzerland’s Fabian Cancellara held onto the yellow jersey.
Full results can be found here.
Looks like Lance is set out to prove all his doubters wrong, and inspire millions more along the way.

Thank you New York Post, for the big blaring headline, and for the use of the word “canoodling.”
“They were doing shots of Jack Daniels and Patron, and she had her hands on his arm as they canoodled at the corner of the bar,” said our spy. “Sanchez was nowhere to be found.”
Hilary Rhoda is the girl. She was with Sanchez in his recent GQ photo shoot.
And you can go here to see more of her without having to look at Sanchez in short shorts.

I’m feeling good about this NBA season early.
There’s a lot of intrigue around the league, plus my Knicks realized they can’t just keep bringing in other teams talented malcontents and do anything but suck. So now they brought in a coach who doesn’t fit the players on the roster, but at least Marbury and Curry are sitting, and Isiah Thomas tried to kill himself or something.
But the team I’m looking forward to the most is the Portland Trailblazers. They have a vast assortment of young talent, they’ve cleaned out all the lunatics and thugs that plagued the franchise for the last few years, and they have the most charismatic big man in basketball.
They have a TON of skilled players. Only two guys on the roster have played more than five years in the league, (Lafrentz and Pryzbilla) and they’re both tall goofy white guys.
They have guys who were high first round draft picks out of high school. They have guys that were high first round draft picks out of college. And they have a mix of young European guys that can play right now.
It’ll be tough to get them all minutes, but I hope they are successful, if only so we can see more commercials out of Greg Oden

I’m extremely bored and have some extra free time on my hands. We’ll see just how long this blog lasts. It’s about sports, obviously. Local around Stony Brook maybe, the usual national stuff. Not that we really need any more idiots talking about professional sports. Not that I’m an idiot.
