ABOUT TO SHIP OUT TO BALTIMORE FOR A SURPRISINGLY IMPORTANT — and even more surprisingly single-admission — doubleheader between the Orioles and Blue Jays today, so we’ll stick to the basics and come back with something more meaty tomorrow.
-Tech’s game against Cincy on Saturday will be a 3:30 kick on ESPNU.
-Oregon leapfrogs LSU to take over No. 2 in the AP poll.
-Denny Hamlin wins at New Hampshire. Johnson takes the points lead.
-Surprising NFL results (at least by Vegas standards): Vikings beat 49ers; Saints fall to 0-3 by losing K.C. in OT; Cardinals move to 3-0 by whipping Philly; Oakland upends Pittsburgh.
NAME THAT TUNE
Catch me in my Mercedes
Bumpin’ “Ice, Ice Baby”
Screamin’ Shady till I die
Like I have a pair of dice
So I live it to the fullest
Till I’m Swayze
And you only live it once
So I’m thinkin’ ’bout this nice, nice lady…
