1. Lance Armstrong: He'll complete his threepeat of the Tour de France today. Armstrong once again was so dominant in the mountain stages that today's final leg through Paris is more of a victory parade than a race. The guy is so good you almost forget he's a cancer survivor.
2. Adam Dunn The kid comes up, keeps hitting and makes a couple nifty plays in the field. Our question is, why wasn't he up a month ago?
3. The Olympic bid: The United States Olympic Committee is taking it seriously. Too bad the local citizens aren't. Problem with this is finishing third in an eight-city field gets you nothing.
4. Luis Gonzalez: He's keeping up with Barry Bonds in the home run race. Gonzalez, one of baseball's nice guys, is someone you can root for.
5. Tony Perez: Nice to see Doggie back at Cinergy Field. Too bad he was wearing the wrong uniform.
1. Pokey Reese: When you're hitting .220-something, you don't throw a fit when you're pinch-hit for with the game on the line. Reese has put the Reds in a tough spot. He's so bad at the plate that he won't get anything in a trade, but with Todd Walker and Barry Larkin signed for next year, there's nowhere to play him.
2. The Bengals: Just sign Justin Smith. We're tired of reading about it. Every missed day of camp pushes him a little further behind. That's how first-rounders end up first-year busts.
3. Justin Smith: Just sign. All that talk about just wanting to play sounds pretty hollow now.
4. Agents: Super-agents Leigh Steinberg and partner David Dunn are in court fighting over Dunn allegedly taking clients from Steinberg's firm. Every NFL GM has to be enjoying that.
5. ABC: For giving us more made-for-TV golf. You've got Tiger Woods and Annika Sorenstam vs. David Duval and Karrie Webb Monday night at 8. But Tiger's playing, so it will draw viewers.
