08/29 Sunday (Emmy) Quickie

Let me hit on the one distinct sports angle of tonight's Emmy Awards: Connie Britton -- who plays Tami Taylor on "Friday Night Lights" deserves to win Best Actress in a Drama.

Britton's character -- and weekly performance -- is, by far, the acting highlight of the show, this season more than ever. (I am less bullish about Kyle Chandler's Eric Taylor. Overrated, sorry. Not the character, but how Chandler plays him.)

Tim Tebow in primetime tonight? Given his injured ribs, I wouldn't be surprised if Tebow didn't play tonight, although you can guarantee that Fox would love to see it.

It's fascinating how Boston's season can go from "signs of life!" to "oh god, why?" from one night (Friday) to the next (Saturday's walk-off win by the Rays).

Kevin Durant might be the alpha star of Team USA hoops, but Kevin Love is using the opportunity to establish himself as one of the best young power forwards in the league. (Take that, Slovenia.)

Hawaii vs. Japan for the LLWS title: Who ya got?
