A unique take on sports news, updated several times throughout the day.
Working for the weekend
Nuggets center Marcus Camby has turned down a chance to join Team USA. Camby says he's still shopping for a team that can actually win a championship.
I just hopped over to a nearby OTB to place some Preakness wagers in order to sqander my winnings from hitting the Kentucky Derby trifecta. As before, I took my cues from SI's Gene Menez, and suggest you do the same. Tip: His long shot for the exotics is Xchanger. (And BTW, OTB on a weekday is a very frightening place; there's nothing like the pungent combination of cigarette smoke, body odor and raw desperation right after lunch.)
I'm ducking out a tad early today so I can fly to Utah for the wedding of my cousin, James Farrelly. Loyal readers will recognize James as the starting offensive tackle for the 10 Spot's official college football team, New Mexico State. Never fear -- or be very afraid, depending on your point of view -- the NMSU updates will return this fall for James' senior season and first as a married man.
