I didn't watch the Home Run Derby last night. I read many Tweets about it and got your e-mails. Here's the conclusion I came to: People spent four hours watching the event and the only memorable things that happened were this fan catching a homer while jumping into a pool and saving his beer; this kid making a diving catch; and this fan almost falling from the stands.
TV Item No. 1
If you're one of the people who has hurt my feelings by ignoring my pleas to watch Friday Night Lights, you can make it up to me by finally tuning in. ESPN Classic has picked up the reruns. Season One will begin airing Thursday. Set your DVRs.
TV Item No. 2
If you're an Eastbound and Down fan, you'll want to see these new videos starring Kenny Powers (and featuring a variety of athletes) as the CEO of K-Swiss.

Smokie, says, "Hey, Jimmy, what the hell is that guy up to behind Mila Kunis, in Monday's P.M. Hot Clicks?" I honestly didn't notice that when I pulled the photo yesterday.

Everyone's favorite female sports personality is participating in the 2011 Aquaphor Le Tour Challenge, which gives cyclists around the world the opportunity to "virtually" compete in the Tour de France.
