Let's see, what's on the agenda for today....the Johnny Blog, my radio stuff, waiting for the cable guy and hanging out with Jimmy. How 'bout you?


Miami, FL. -- Marlins Park turned out to be a friendly destination for the tourists wearing all white.

The Rays, who arrived in Miami wearing all white as dictated by the dress code for one of the team's many themed road trips, took care of business in South Florida. Sunday's 4-2 win gave the Rays a three-game sweep over the weekend, earning the team from St. Petersburg early bragging rights for the Florida rivalry, facilitated by Interleague Play.

Just when you thought sexting was for naive high schoolers just asking for trouble, it turns out it's pretty popular with their moms and dads, too. A mobile safety company called Lookout discovered that 18% of American smartphone owners send sexy text messages. One in five moms and dads with kids under 18 send saucy messages to each other.


San Francisco, CA.--
Tim Lincecum's season-long struggles continued Sunday, and the rest of the Giants didn't exactly pick up their ace pitcher.

Lincecum gave up a season-high nine hits and was tagged for five runs in 5 2/3 innings, while an anemic Giants offense combined with sloppy defense and baserunning in a 5-0 loss to the Rangers.

LONG POND, Pa. -- On a speedway with a fresh coat of asphalt, Joey Logano may just have gotten a fresh start.

After reclaiming the lead from veteran Mark Martin on Lap 157 of 160, Logano pulled away to win the Pocono 400 presented by #NASCAR at Pocono Raceway, his first victory since a rain-shortened win at New Hampshire in 2009.

More important, the second triumph of Logano's career couldn't have come at a better time -- during a contract year in which doubters have considered the 22-year-old a prime candidate to lose his ride at Joe Gibbs Racing to a more established star.

"I hope it shuts 'em all up," was Logano's terse wish for his critics after he climbed from his winning No. 20 Toyota.

Logano, who gave crew chief Jason Ratcliff his first Cup win, beat Martin to the finish line by .997 seconds -- the first time in 31 Sprint Cup events a driver has won from the pole. Tony Stewart ran third, followed by Jimmie Johnson and Denny Hamlin.
