I don't know who is going to win this year's home-run derby in MLB, but my money is on Chris Archer.

– FSU recruit Khalan LaBorn drove a Lambourgini to announce that he was joining FSU. If he had driven a Kia. USF might have been in the mix.

– Steven Stamkos 1, Dwyane Wade 0.

– So let me get this straight. J.J. Watt doesn't drive his team's train in the post season. So says Michael “Caboose” Irvin, the fourth-most important Cowboy of his day.

– I believe Louis Murphy when he talks about his night at the museum. But I want to know if Teddy Roosevelt came to life.

– Steven Stamkos 1, Kevin Durant 0.

– A question for all you critics: How pretty does Serena Williams look now with 22 grand slam victories?

– After 13 years, the Heat is charging $13 for all Dwyane Wade merchandise, including jerseys. I guess that makes their old LeBron James stuff worth five bucks, right?

– Nice plan, huh, by Rio. You pay billions, put your city is eternal debt, and, for the price, the world gets to know that you're a cesspool.

– In Cleveland, you can buy a Johnny Manziel jersey for $1.99. If you're wondering, you can find the following bad-player jerseys on eBay. A Ryan Leaf is $24, a Jamarcus Russell is $22 and a Josh Freeman is $16.99. Which means Manziel was just horrible.

– Even after Jason Pierre-Paul, NBA player Nick Young got lucky after fireworks blew up in his hand. Maybe these guys should just put them in their hat. No damage there.

– The Sporting News, picking the 10 undrafted free agents who make a team, included the Bucs' Cassanova McKinsey. Good name, too.

– I think the Chicago Bulls are going to have a great year with Rajon Rondo and Dwyane Wade. Unfortunately, that year is 2008.

– Do you think Serena Williams might have a seven-person dinner party, and serve everyone in a Wimbledon plate?

– After free agency, the Orlando Magic has soared all the way … to 21st. They spent a lot of money not to crack the top 20.

– Should the Olympics have bothered adding golf?

– I see that Charles Barkley says that Kevin Durant is trying to cheat his way to a title. That's completely unfair. Now, if he can just coax LeBron James to join the Warriors.

– Steven Stamkos 1, Joakim Noah 0.

– Dwyane Wade says LeBron James is cheap. I wonder what he thinks about Pat Riley? I mean, really.

– I'm all for players getting benefits because of concussions. But has Paul Hornung really been wearing his helmet for the last 50 years?
