There are no SpoFi posting categories that can accurately describe what Diana Nyad accomplished yesterday. Extreme is a mere trifle not worthy of the saga.

I didn't know she was making her fifth attempt to swim the Florida Straits until after she was already underway. I scrambled to catch up with what was happening and followed her track through Day One preparing myself for the possibility of another difficult ending.

Then came Day Two. I woke involuntarily yesterday morning at 5am and went to check her progress only to find out that she had totally rocked Day Two and was farther along than she had ever gotten before. From then on I was glued to it. I was so worried that some knucklehead yahoo would make bodily contact with her at Smathers Beach before she made the required number of steps on land to complete the swim.

What an epic feat.

New England fired Hernandez as soon as it was clear he was probably guilty. Should Steelers fans really be playing the "whose players are bigger criminals" game?

Get your t-shirt from Houston if they have one - they're still (I believe) the cleanest team in the NFL.

Add another mug shot to the New England all-jailhouse team. Jared Sullinger from the Celtics is the latest to have some business before the court. I'm beginning to believe that complete sobriety and celibacy are the preferred lifestyles for professional athletes.

Craig James gets fired after one week, when Fox Sports realizes some idiot hired him.

The streak is over. Pittsburgh Pirates post 81st win, guarantee non losing season after 20 of them in a row. Congrats, Bucs!
