I spend a lot of my time on the internet reading the sports news. I read a lot more about sports than I watch, in fact. But the last week has nearly brought me to the point of abandoning that pursuit. Between the endless discussion of steroids in MLB, the Michael Vick indictment for being party to a dogfighting operation in the NFL, the possibility that an NBA referee helped to fix point spreads in collaboration with organized crime, and the doping controversies that have nearly brought the Tour de France to a halt, the sports news has become so much like the "real" news that I'm wondering whether I shouldn't just concentrate on the latter. Then again, there are only so many references to the Bush Administration that I can stomach. All I can say is that it's a good thing Harry Potter arrived to make July a little less miserable.
