Trivia: What do the rings on the Olympic flag represent? Seven continents of the world, five primary colors, seven primary colors, five continents of the world? Tricky. Answer below.

27 of the 30 major league baseball teams made some sort of trade in the month of July and then, on August 1st, another 18 trades went down.

In 2013 Peter Chiarelli, then Bruins GM, hired Keith Gretzky (Wayne’s younger brother) as the Director of Amateur Scouting. Chiarelli, now Edmonton’s GM, has hired Gretzky as an assistant GM.

Kevin Faulk, Patriots’ hall of famer. Yes he is.

Unless the “Top 5” (or is it Top 7???) start winning more tournaments, especially more majors, the PGA will continue to miss Tiger Woods.

So Ozzy has a sex addiction. Who doesn’t?? His wife Sharon, by the way, is “proud that he has come out and admitted it finally.” Are you sh#$%ing me!?

So let me get this straight. Josh Gordon, who has been suspended for 2 games in 2013, 11 games in 2014, all 16 games in 2016 and the first 4 games this season, is able to practice with the team and Tom Brady isn’t. Really?

You don’t think Kraft is bullshit about Brady’s absence at practice? The Pats had 23,000 or so fans at their open practice. The Packers had over 62,000. Dice it any way you want but it all adds up ($$$).

The AL East is so up for grabs.

I like the opening ceremonies of any Olympics. I’ll be watching tonight. Segue into the 10:05pm start of the Sox.

I’m rooting for Michael Phelps. Good story.

The Seattle Mariners, Ortiz’ first ML team, presented him with 34 lbs. of wild salmon. Now I’m thinking that’s got to be the best gift he’s received.

It took A-Rod 3 years to go from 500 homeruns to 600. It has now been 6 years since his 600th and he needs 4 more for 700, but he’s not playing. Girardi benched him last night against Bartolo Colon who A-Rod has a career .442 average (and 8 homeruns) against. He appears to be in the doghouse and there is talk the Yanks don’t even want him to reach 700. Oh, my heart goes out.

I’d take Westbrook over Durant. Just sayin’.

Trivia answer: Five continents of the world. North and South America are considered as one continent and Antarctica is not included.
