Blog Photo - Game On! Sports Live Thread 7/28/13Good morning everybody. While today's sports lineup is not quite as eclectic and random as Saturday's, there's still plenty out there. Baseball of course has a full schedule, including some very nice pitching matchups. Team USA goes for another Gold Cup championship against Panama this afternoon. One thing is to watch for is how they'll play without coach Jurgen Klinsmann, who was suspended by CONCACAF for this match. There's also the 20th running of the Brickyard 400 at the World's Greatest Race Course, Indianapolis Motor Speedway. I'll have a piece on that later and my conflicting thoughts regarding the race. There's also golf, tennis, volleyball, and swimming action today.

That cheergasm you heard from New York today was Derek Jeter hitting a home run in his latest return game.

The Orioles are making me angry.
