I’m sure of it. I watched it. Germany beat Argentina one-to-nil in extra time, thus ending two months of highly anticipated, very engrossing fútbol (spelled as such so as to not confuse it with American football).

SH Blog: Gay happy with Kings; Keeping Faried will cost Nuggets

Rudy Gay

We’ve got a very important piece up here on Sheridan Hoops today.

Sprung: Amid coaching chaos, Nets only imagine what could have been with Shaw

Kidd

Jason Kidd and Brian Shaw were the two finalists for the Brooklyn Nets coaching position during the summer.
