It's surprisingly slow in sports today -- presume that picks up tonight with Klinsmann's debut with the USMNT and tomorrow night with the first NFL preseason games -- but there are a bunch of really good reads from this week's SI that I recommended on Quickish yesterday and today:
*The story about the Auburn trees at Toomer's Corner.
*A profile of Dustin Pedroia.
*A profile of fascinating MLB prospect Trevor Bauer.
All three are great -- worth bookmarking or Instapapering for reading at lunchtime or downtime or over the weekend.
Unrelated to sports: As always, you've got to read Michael Lewis in Vanity Fair writing about the economy -- this time, about Germany.
More on Quickish all day.
