You know it's a weird weekend in sports when the lead stories are about a swim race, a non-major golf tournament and a horse race.
Yes, there was Victor Martinez's terrific 2nd-day with the Red Sox. Yes, there was the widespread opening of every NFL training camp (except the Giants, who start today).
But I remain pretty blown away by Phelps' race on Saturday. That said, does he win my "Weekend's Biggest Winner" award? NO HE DOES NOT. See the winner in today's SN column.
More in today's column:
*OK, so the Patriots AREN'T interested in Vick.
*I make Lloyd Carr sound like a complete fool.
*Do you think Obama will wear Peavy's No. 44 Sox jersey?
There's a lot more beyond that. Check out the column here. More later.
