■ I have an embarrassing admission to make. Before this year, I'm not sure I knew the NBA even had a Summer League.
■ Before you put too much stock in the Summer League, consider that Glen Rice Jr. led the Las Vegas Summer League in scoring last year. He went on to play five whole games with the Wizards before being waived.
■ Actually, I would watch the Summer League, but I'm too busy trying to figure out how Apple Music works.
Never miss a local story.
■ Johnny Cueto is passing the audition. If the Cincinnati Reds ace is going to be dealt — and he should — he's sure driving up the price. In his last two starts, Cueto has allowed one run in 17 innings.
■ After Tennessee completed its switch from Adidas to Nike last week, Michigan announced this week it was trading the stripes for the swoosh. Now maybe Michigan will stop wearing some of the more hideous uniforms in the history of college football.
■ The only thing more awkward than those unis was Jim Harbaugh's interview with Colin Cowherd.
■ Not surprised Sunday night's final of the Women's World Cup flattened soccer viewing records. Sorry soccer deniers, the sport is growing. And growing. And growing. It's like Carli Lloyd. It can't be stopped.
■ Not to say Fox's soccer announcers were biased or anything, but when the U.S. scored four goals against a Japanese defense that was looking into the sun, the glare was never mentioned. When the teams switched ends of the field in the second half and Japan scored, the announcers mentioned the glare as a possible problem.
■ When the Warriors traded David Lee to the Celtics on Tuesday, Stephen Curry gave his friend and former teammate a going-away present. Curry tweeted a video of Curry blocking a Lee shot — Lee was with the Knicks at the time — that prompted Lee to complain to the officials and Curry.
■ Did you know next week's All-Star Game in Cincinnati will be the first in major league history that does not feature a Boston Red Sox or New York Yankees player as a starter? Now that's progress.
■ What NBA free agency needs is a Peach Jam.
■ Those of us who cover sports for a living, especially at the local levels, are really getting a kick out of the national political media's incessant griping about the restrictions being put on the press by Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign. Too funny.
■ My new hope is that, after taking over a Michigan public access channel to do a show, Steven Colbert will hijack one of our local television newscasts.
■ SEC Football Media Days start next week, which makes me think there is a pocket of Alabama fans already anxiously waiting in the hotel lobby hoping to get Nick Saban's autograph.
■ Latest installment of "Does Everybody Cheat?" belongs to the LPGA, where a caddie at the U.S. Women's Open was caught taking cellphone photographs of the course's set-up documents. Seriously.
■ Tuesday morning, ESPN's Mike and Mike radio show put together a Mount Rushmore of athletes younger than age 25. Two athletes made the final lists of both Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic. One was Andrew Luck, 25. The other was Anthony Davis, 22.
■ Good thing they are putting down an artificial surface at the new and improved Commonwealth Stadium. With all the rain we've been having, Mitch Barnhart already would have blown his mowing budget with the old grass surface.
■ Remember when the Pan American Games used to be a thing?
■ A technical glitch took down the entire New York Stock Exchange on Wednesday, so I'd stop complaining about how long Major League Baseball replay challenges take.
■ In his career, Aroldis Chapman has thrown 167 pitches of at least 102 miles per hour. During that time, the rest of the major league pitchers have hit 102 mph just 49 times.
