Greetings, sports fans! WOW there's a lot going on tonight! If you can't find something you're even remotely interested in watching this Friday evening then I'm not sure you can call yourself a sports fan. Other than the NFL, we've got just about everything covered. What did you miss yesterday? Let's take a look...what, exactly, is a "Steph Curry" flavored mouthguard?.....as if there were any doubt, Kobe says he should be okay to start the season.....apparently Gasol is on the hot seat as he returns from injury.....something called Miles the Monster is welcoming NASCAR for the third race of the Chase.....it's time for the Colts to feed Trent Richardson - watch out, Jacksonville.....Matt Cassel's getting the nod this week for the Vikings, apparently due to Christian Ponder's injury. Do I detect a possible QB controversy in the future?.....every week we look forward to some upsets in the NFL - which will they be this week?.....there are also some not-so-great games on the lineup every week, and here are seven to avoid Sunday....Bud Selig announces he'll be retiring...in 15 months.....looks like Mariano Rivera got a great sendoff last night.....if you haven't seen it yet, don't forget to check out the What's the Difference game for this week! For anything else you may have missed, go to the Best of the Web homepage and check it out!

The Pirates historically have trouble beating Homer Bailey.  This is the same time of year last year that he came into PNC Park and no-hit them, the final week of the season.  This is a nice payback in his ballpark knocking him out after 5+ innings and getting the win.  Tomorrow it's Charlie Morton for the Bucs, whom the Reds seem to struggle against perhaps worse than the Bucs against Bailey.

Rays lose. Indians are up big. Rangers are tied through five. If Cleveland holds on, the Rays and Indians will be tied for the two wild cards. The Rangers would then have to win to stay 1 game back.

The Pirates beat the Reds tonight, meaning Pittsburgh needs one win to assure they will host the wild card game.

O's getting pounded before Jeopardy is over. So...off to MLB.tv to watch the 4 games that most matter for the playoff race.
