A Great Day For Sports, A Bad Night For Britney

Yesterday was a great day for sports.
Tiger Woods won the BMW up in Chicago, continuing his momentum towards garnering the first FedEx Cup.
Roger Federer took his fourth U.S. Open in a row in straight sets.
Tony Roma and my Dallas Cowboys welcomed the Giants to Texas Stadium with open arms, particularly Terrell Owens (sorry, all my NY friends).
And Kid Rock took on Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee out in Vegas.
Not inside the ropes of the boxing ring at MGM, mind you, but rather in the audience of the MTV Video Music Awards.
Although judging from the commentary surrounding Britney Spear's return engagement, perhaps the MTV staff should have thrown up some ropes around Kid and Tommy and let them finish a round or two.
That would probably have been a might more entertaining than what was going on onstage!
Of course, if MTV celebrity fisticuffs aren't your cup of tea, know that there's also an interesting battle brewing online, this time on Facebook.
According to The New York Times, reaction has been building against an anti-Islam Facebook group, with some 58,000 Facebook members joining an opposition group which explains that, unless the anti-Islam group was removed, they were "quitting Facebook."
At last count, Facebook was garnering an estimated 100,000 new members a day, so Bob Metcalfe's network effect may deem the otherwise massive protest unnoticeable.
The Times goes on to report that Facebook declined to comment on the subject of hate speech, although one can imagine they can't stay silent for long.
Methinks this will likely be only one of many Facebook free speech discussions to come.
Anybody up for forming a "Lawyers for Facebook Free Speech Lawsuits" group???
