Sunday 06/08 (Very) Quickie

Big Brown chokes away Triple Crown: I can appreciate if you bet against Big Brown winning (although there probably weren't many of you), but would you have taken longest of long-shots Da' Tara? I don't think so. While less historic, I found BB's loss far more dramatic than I likely would have found a win.

Suns to hire Terry Porter: The team was built around D'Antoni's "7 Seconds or Less" philosophy -- will Porter simply keep that going, or will he put another twist on it?

Ana Ivanovic is the new Maria Sharapova -- actually, she's No. 1 in the world and riding a French Open championship.

Cedric Benson is the new Pac-Man Jones? If nothing else, kind of delinquent.

Who put Johnny Damon in the way-back machine? 6-for-6 with a walk-off single?

Joe Crede: 2 HR for the 2nd straight game. But, no, I don't need HR and RBI on my fantasy team (on whose waiver wire Crede has been available for weeks), not at all.

Now that the Mets are 1 game under .500, the question is: Is Willie Randolph going to be fired this week?

NHL Awards: Looks like Alex Ovechkin will be MVP. At least, if you believe

Jim McKay, 86: Condolences to family, friends and fans of one of the most legendary sports broadcasters. His work during the 1972 Munich Olympics may very well have been the most memorable news reporting by a sportscaster in the history of television.

MDS interviews Leitch about his Deadspin departure: You probably won't get more in-depth insight into this story than this post here, if you're interested.
