Morning Coffee: The Worst Sports Day Ever Happens

Some days just don't need to be mentioned for much more than a cursory paragraph. This is one of those days. Instead of agonizing you with all the crappy things that happened, let's just list them one by one, so we can move on with our lives:

  • After Prince Harry threw out the first pitch, Johan Santana failed to throw anything nearly as close to the strike zone the rest of the day and the Mets were shutout 6-0 by the Twins to tie that series at one. For more on Santana's troubles, read my weekly column. For more on the Mets, check out Amazin' Avenue.

  • The Yankees had just as poor an outing last night in Los Angeles, in a 9-4 loss that seemed purely interminable. AJ Burnett had another difficult start, and the Yankees simply left too many men on base. That series is tied at one as well. For more, visit Pinstripe Alley.

  • Team USA lost 2-1 to Ghana in the World Cup Round of 16's weirdo OT rules.

  • The Red Bulls actually won (!) in their return to action, scoring thrice in the second half to beat Kansas City, 3-0.  Juan Pablo Angel struck twice for Metro, as they moved back into a tie for first place with New England in the East.

  • The local hockey teams spent their day in rounds two through seven of the NHL Draft, which took less time to complete than round one did on it's own.  For roundups of the Devils, Rangers and Islanders drafts, visit Lighthouse HockeyBlueshirt Banter and In Lou We Trust. Still can't believe the Devils took a guy named Faust (read more books, people).

So let us all take a deep breath and move on. It's a new day, and a new opportunity. See you tomorrow.
