Guillaume, of Paris, says, "Switzerland shocked Spain in one of the biggest upsets in World Cup history, but that wasn't the best part. Reporter Sara Carbonero had to interview her boyfriend, Spanish keeper Iker Casillas, after the game for Spanish TV. I can't find a translated version but the coldness and nonchalance of the interview is scary. Not even a kiss when they part ways." I'm not sure a kiss would be appropriate in that situation, but here's the interview, which doesn't seem that bad. And here's an article that says Spain fans are blaming Carbonero for the loss because she's a distraction. And here are photos of Carbonero that prove she is indeed a distraction.

This is pretty awesome. Jay Mohr has been named host of the NHL Awards show that will take place next week. The only problem is that Puck Daddy found multiple quotes from Mohr in which he bashed hockey.

I had a chance to speak to John Cena Tuesday afternoon at an event for Gillette Fusion ProGlide (where the above photo featuring everyone's favorite sideline reporter, whose contract with ESPN is coming to an end, was taken). I asked the WWE champion to give me his top five most memorable wrestling moments. Here's his list and his explanation for each pick.

1. Hulk Hogan vs. Andre the Giant, Wrestlemania III. This was the first-ever in-your-house pay-per-view, not just a closed-circuit event, and it was everything it needed to be. It had my real-life Superman face-to-face with a person who actually was larger and stronger and a more formidable foe than he had ever faced before. You had 93,000 fans in the building. It was just a very impressionable moment.

2. Hulk Hogan vs. The Rock, Wrestlemania XVIII: It was Icon vs. Icon. If you watch the match from a technical standpoint, it was atrocious. But that just goes to show you that sometimes just the image of an Icon vs. an Icon creates energy. I loved the crowd reaction.

3. Shawn Michaels vs. The Undertaker, Wrestlemania XXV and XXVI: A match that had been seen before, but never on a stage that big. I remember watching it for the first time and saying out loud to myself, "This is the greatest match I've ever seen," and I think it was two of the most consummate professionals lacing up the boots and going at it. I think when they got together for 26, nobody thought they could do it again. But not only did they do it again, but they did it better.

4. NXT invasion: This happened two weeks ago and it came at my expense. But what a shot in the arm for WWE programming, and what a wake-up call for all the young guys in the locker room. I think WWE is filled with a lot of talent that is not afraid to step up and here are eight young guys with nothing to lose and they pretty much grabbed WWE programming by the crotch and decided to run the show. I was very impressed with what they did even though they beat my ass.

5. The existence of the Four Horseman: Those guys ran the show and literally lived all of that. Nothing about it was false or ungenuine. Those guys grabbed life by the horns and ran NWA and WCW like it was their own.

Chase Utleytried some voodoo to help his team break out of its offensive slump before last night's Phillies-Yankees game. Philadelphia ended up winning, 6-3.

I guess this was bound to happen. Here's a song about vuvuzelas ( which are dominating the Internet right now) sung to the tune of Rihanna's Umbrella. (Thanks to reader Chris Murphy for the link.)

This guy was not happy that a fan blocked his view at the World Cup. So he pushed him over the railing. (Thanks to Lucio, of New York City, for the link.)

If you missed last night's 30 for 30 documentary on ESPN, you must catch it when it's replayed. The show covers the events of June 17, 1994, which included O.J. Simpson's white Bronco chase, Game 5 of the NBA Finals between the Rockets and Knicks and a few other events. It was riveting. The best thing about the show was that there were no talking heads or voiceovers. It's just news footage from that day, and, in my opinion, that's what made the documentary so engrossing. Anyway, here's a schedule of replays so you can set your DVRs. And here's a full review of the show from Fang's Bites. Below is the only piece of footage that should have been in the show, but was not.
