8/10 Sunday Quickie

*Would love for you to sign up for my upcoming new email newsletter.

*This Tony Stewart story is tragic and awful -- and not even close to over.

*Johnny Manziel's debut: Not bad! Starter by Week - what? - 5?

*Jason Day's amazing par on the 500-yard No. 2 at the PGA Championship, in 5 GIFs.

*Katie Ledecky is ridiculously good. (She's from my hometown, so I'm partial to rooting for her, but she's quickly shooting up the list of "Greatest Maryland-Homegrown Athletes of All Time," which includes Michael Phelps, Cal Ripken, Kevin Durant, Travis Pastrana and Len Bias.)

*Sunday read: NYT's Michael Powell obliterates Deion Sanders' "charter school."

(My one quibble is Powell's judginess about players transferring schools. That's their prerogative, along with their parents. OTOH, I'm no fan of the cynical prep-hoops factories themselves.)

*Highlight of the night: Pujols walk-off HR in 19th.
