If I remember correctly, Kobe wants No. 24 to be retired by the Lakers. I'm sure they'll do that in addition to no Laker wearing No. 8 again

Of course, that is Alexis DeJoria. We now have a delay to clean the track. Three more Funny Car second-races to come. #usnationals

Paul Garcia

By the end of today, Serbia, France, and either Brazil or Spain will all be 2-1, BRA or ESP will be 3-0.

5. Ash calls trainers that night complaining of headaches and dizziness. He later tells coaches he thinks the first hit did it.

Schumacher and Crampton will meet in Top Fuel semis. Could be epic. S. Torrence and alBalooshi in other semi. #usnationals

4. Ash does not do his usual postgame media availability, but Strong says the coaching staff was not aware of any issues when he left.

Rookie Richie Crampton beats defending champ Shawn Langdon in a time of 3.769, best Top Fuel time of day. #usnationals

Mike Finger

3. In the fourth quarter, he gets knocked around on a fumbled snap in the end zone. Again, no reported problems.

2. Supposedly, trainers check on him after every series. He takes several more hits but never reports any issues.

Barry Jackson

Lazor said Lamar Miller's production needs to be improve and "be decisive in the backfield. I have no doubts about how explosive he can be."

Mike Finger

1. On the first play of UT's second possession, he picks up a fumble and gets hit in the head. He pops right back up, shows no ill effects.

Mike Finger

So, from what we've gathered, the timeline of Ash's injury is as follows:

Michael Pointer

Khalid alBalooshi nips J. Vandergriff by one-hundreths second in another second-round race. #usnationals

Barry Jackson

Dolphins OC Bill Lazor: "I feel very good about the talent level we have. It's time to put up some points."

Erik Gundersen

Final: France 94, Egypt 55. Nicolas Batum: 15 minutes, 9 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 turnover, 1 block, 4/5 FG, 1/1 3PT.

Paul Garcia

France moves to 2-1 in Group Phase play with a 94-55 victory over Egypt. Boris Diaw only had to play in the 1st half, scored 3 pts, 3 asts.

Michael Pointer

Tony Schumacher looking very good in quest for 10th #usnationals title. Beats D. Lagana easily in time of 3.777 seconds in second round.

There;s some wounded pride here as Danny Welbeck has been the butt of my endless jokes during every England game over the last three years.

Paul Garcia

France's defense has been spectacular today. Have held Egypt to 15 points (1Q), 11 pts (2Q), 10 pts (3Q), & right now 7 pts in 4Q.

Alapag was huge in 2nd half 15pts 5/7 3p, De Ocampo 18 pts. Another double - double fron Blatche (14 pts-15rebs) #Spain2014

Aware he didn't play central striker that year. But fail to see how any of this makes him better than Joel Campbell.

Coyle downplaying the team's preseason issues with tackling, says it's a common problem with any team early on due to various factors.

Mark Deeks

A reminder that Danny Welbeck scored 2 goals in 40 games in 2012/13.

Nikos Varlas

Supporting cast from Argentina was really a factor. Mata with 17 pts,9 rebs&Laprovittola 10pts, 3 rebs, 4ass made the difference.#Spain2014

No problems at all for the European Champs & a 32p lead (68-36) over Egypt after 30min of Basketball #Spain2014

After playing 69 minutes in the first two days, looks like Nicolas Batum will get a 4th quarter to rest with France up 32 on Egypt.
