The US Open women’s semi-final will be an all-American affair for the first time since 1981 when Tracy Austin, Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova and Barbara Potter competed. Tracy Austin was the champion that year. This year’s semi-final matchup features Venus Williams vs Sloan Stephens and Madison Keys vs CoCo Vandeweghe.

Colin Kaepernick is not going to start the NFL season, and apparently it’s partly because of his girlfriend. According to former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, the Ravens were interested in signing Kaepernick until his girlfriend posted a racist tweet making fun of Lewis and Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti. The tweet showed Lewis and Bisciotti in an embrace similar to a scene from the movie Django Unchained.

The NFL season begins tonight, which means if you play fantasy football, your draft is over and your rosters should be set. My draft was Tuesday night and we’re heading into a challenging season of our team (the Screaming Weasel) trying to beat the reigning two-time champs, Black and Gold with an eye on always taking down the hated three-time champs, the Ziti Shooters. May the games begin!!!!
