Quick Thoughts From the Weekend

- Holy crap, was it hot all weekend. Looks like this weather will continue right into the beginning of the week, with the weather getting up to 100 degrees today. Unless you were drinking, being outside was something to be endured and not enjoyed.

- You know, if the Belmont stakes were a prize fight, you would almost make an accusation of a fix or a dive. How could Big Brown, one of the most dominant horses ever to come down the pike and winner of the first two legs of the Triple Crown, finish dead last in the Belmont? Has that ever happened? It has to be unprecedented, right?

- Big weekend from the Phightin' Phils. The swept Atlanta in their home ballpark; a place where the Braves had lost only 8 times all year. The Phils are now 3.5 games ahead of Florida in NL East and they can widen that lead, as they head to Miami for a 3-game set starting tomorrow, when Brett Myers faces Ricky Nolasco.

- Saw "Walk Hard" over the weekend on pay-per-view. One word review: meh.
