Blog Photo - Game On! Live Sports Thread I know, I know. It's football all day. However, if you need a break, here's what else is available. The big news is the US Open women's final between Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka. They are by far the best two female tennis players in the world, both have run roughshod through the draw, and their last meeting was a fantastic three set match. I know I will at least have it streaming online during the Packers/49ers game. There's also more September baseball, and some other random stuff that get stuck as football counterprogramming.

Here is today’s schedule. All times are eastern and are pm unless otherwise indicated. Personal picks are in bold.

Took a quick break to watch Usain Bolt run. He ran a 9.80 and the announcers were ho-hum about it. Just ridiculous.

Sebastian Vettel won the Italian Grand Prix. It's looking more and more inevitable he will win his 4th straight World Championship.
