Lots of places for the media to go today. For the All Star Break, which is usually the slowest sports days of the year, consider the stories out there:
And then there are smaller stories:
5) Allen Iverson’s legal woes (Story: ESPN )
6) ESPY Awards from last night (Tom Brady wins Breakthrough Athlete of the year, Patriots lose to Lakers for team of the year)
7) Celtics Summer league next week (Story: Shira Springer )
8) Patriots camp in a couple weeks (Herald Story)
Elsewhere, Steve Buckley continues to lament over the All Star Game and feels bad for Bud Selig. Jim Baker puts out a column for the third day in a row, and says FOX is indignant over the ending of the game and because Selig, Torre and Brenley were on a Press Conference airing on ESPN before the FOX telecast was even over. Stan Grossfeld writes about the plight of the Expos. Chris Snow has a story on 7-6, 297lb Neil Fingleton, who transferred to Holy Cross from North Carolina and will be playing in the Bay State Games starting tonight.
FOX25 has Red Sox/Blue Jays from Toronto tonight at 7:00.(ATT3 in Western MA) ESPN has Indians/Yankees at 7:00.
