Greetings, sports fans! I hope you had a wonderful Labor Day weekend. 

Best of the Web Recap:
Will we see a QB rush for over 1,000 yards this year?.....Week 1 is quickly approaching, and the Jets still have yet to name a starter under center.....but one columnist swears that despite their issues, the Jets WILL make the playoffs this year.....whether they do or don't, is this the last year we see Rex on the sidelines?.....the defending Super Bowl champs may find difficulty even winning their division this year.....but the Pats should have no trouble winning theirs.....did Tim Tebow deserve better from football fans?.....in the midst of trimming down rosters, Seattle was adding to theirs.....the Bills have run into a problem at QB already.....Colts rookie safety already in trouble with the law.....the first week of college football came with some surprises.....Chase Utley finally responds to a funny letter to him from 'Always Sunny'.....this week's MLB rankings are out, and the Braves are still sitting pretty.....but what about the state of the race with only a month left to go?

20 years of frustration, 20 years of meaningless games after the all-star break, 20 years of suffering...IT IS ALL OVER!  The Bucs have 81 wins and to get it in Miller Park where they've been tormented for so many years is priceless!

O's left 8 on base, so not even a 3 run homer in the 8th could save them from a 4-3 loss to Cleveland.

In other news, Chapman had 9 days off for some reason, but came in tonight to save a 1-0 game and hit 103 on the gun multiple times. Sick.

Serena just won 6-0, 6-0. In a Grand Slam quarterfinal. Against a top 20 player. Wow.

This definitely feels like a night of baseball, maybe some tennis, and a glass of whiskey.
